TGIF! I can’t believe I made it through my first week alone with the girls. Motherhood isn’t easy, especially when you are home with two kids alone.
My first week with two kids alone wasn’t as bad as I anticipated. Then the week’s end arrived. Between trying to maintain a blog, a house, two kids, and my sanity – I may or may not have been on the verge of my first breakdown this morning. Then as I walked the trash outside, a sense of peace washed over me. I heard, “Breathe, stay calm, you got this” inside myself somewhere and knew I would be just fine.
two. all grown up.
Why does my toddler (wearing shoes on the wrong feet) look so old? Oh wait – it’s because we have an almost 3 week old now making Annabelle seem 13. She was a rockstar at preschool this week because she loves her little friends and teacher. She told me both days upon pick-up, “I didn’t cry! I had so much fun!”
three. straight up sister lovin’.
Annabelle is SO proud of the painting she made for her baby sister. And Ailey, well she just wants some freakin’ milk. Someday the little one will appreciate her big, but for now – this.
four. owning it.
I love Fall. I love pumpkins. I love PSL (even though the dairy makes me sick). AND I LOVE THAT LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS SONGS IS A LITTLE MORE ACCEPTABLE THAN IT WAS BEFORE! Since Annabelle was born, my husband has made me promise to wait until November so our poor child(ren) aren’t confused.

I feel a little better about listening to the occasional Christmas song now that it’s September! And it’s full out Christmas music come November 1!
