Happy Birthday boys! I’m honestly in denial they’re two…
So let’s get real for a second. These babies have consumed my entire life the past couple years. It’s been the craziest of rides and they’ve brought more joy and stress than I can even put into words! I definitely struggle at times with feeling like we’re being held back… we just can’t be adventurers with two two year olds, ya know?! I know that finding joy in the simple things is enough right now. They make me laugh my head off every single day with their shenanigans. They make me carry them up the stairs for nap time, they scream for hand hugs while we’re driving in the car.

They had our hotels, flights, tickets, car, everything was picked out and ready to go. I’m kind of impressed and shocked to this day that it actually happened! We have 10 kids between

Not just because I am one, or because I have a great one, but because I feel that mother’s deserve to be celebrated. I have known some incredible women in my life and I continue to be inspired by hard working moms all around me. Sometimes these women are not even mother’s but have nurtured my children in ways I just could not and they deserve to be celebrated. Sometimes I’ve never even met these women but they have played such a strong role in the way I look at life. And these women deserve to be celebrated! Baby Bosty… Baby Savy… Baby Kai and Coopey… The first Mother’s Day I can recall was just a few months after I had delivered Boston. My Dad held me tight and with all the authority a Father can muster he quietly whispered, “Happy Mother’s
