Today, I dropped my babies off at their first day of school in a new town. This is their second (out of three) schools they’ll be attending this year — breaks my heart to be uprooting them every couple of months. But it’s really out of my hands and they’re amazing kids so I know everything will be ok. It’s such a bitter sweet moment walking away from them, though. Will they make friends? Will they be scared? Will they be behind in class? Will the teacher be kind? I worry about them, as mothers do. I’ve not been able to stop thinking about them and in just a few minutes I get to meet them outside and help them off the bus!! Boston and Savy ride the same bus home. It’s kind of amazing being in a small little town where literally everyone knows your name! I told Boston he’d need to sit by Savy on the bus, help her feel safe and brave. He told me, “Mom, don’t you worry. I’ll take care of her”. And I know he will. I also know that out of anyone, Savy won’t need any rescuing. I guarantee she’ll come off that bus with fifty new friends that adore her. She’s just like that.
The thing about children is while they create most of the stress, they also have a beautiful way of pulling you out of it. Your life isn’t just about you anymore… serving them, finding ways to make them happy, teaching them, praying for them, and being their person is the biggest blessing.
If you want, shop my outfit below! The coat is under $40 and it’s one of my favorite coats: wear it to church every week and I found the cutest tote at Target that’s under $34 heeyy-ooo!
LipSense color: Sheer Pink 2x + Sheer Berry 1x – more info here.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes: “Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful, it means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life” – Lisa Weedn. And now I have all the feels!!
Oh, and in case you were wondering… this is my current situation! No makeup, no bra, no shower, still hungry and need lunch. Have dealt with 17,876 twin tantrums, Boston cried for 20 minutes before school because he wanted to wear shorts and it’s currently a blizzard outside, #worstmomever, and it took Savy over an hour to pick out her outfit. Mmk, just wanted you to know. #keepinitreal2017 #yourewelcome
