Just hangin’ out with my best boy friend today, isn’t he cute?! This is Boston. He’s my oldest son and easily my favorite child!! Just kidding, I don’t have a favorite… but if I did it’d be him 😂. It’s so fun to have an eight year old. He still has his moments but for the most part they are few and far between. He loves lists, is very proactive, manages his own time and schedule, finishes his homework without being asked and for the most part helps out and is happy to do it. He’s the most reserved out of all my kids, a little bit shy and doesn’t care to be in the spotlight. Being his mom is pretty darn cool.
It’s obvious that boys are very different from girls and because my dudes just aren’t as emotionally needy as their sister, it’s sometimes easy to disconnect. I’ve been working really hard at being a better mom and I wanted to share a few things I’ve been doing that have really helped me and Boston connect. I’m not even close to being a role model parent guys, so we’re just gonna use this little list as a sweet reminder and motivator to try and love on our boys just a tiny bit more! You good with that?!
I’m back from China, working through the piles and piles of laundry, but carving out some time to blog. I feel like it’s been forevvvver? I left when it was summer and have totally come home to fall! I’m seeing my favorite fall colors, smelling allllll the yummy fall smells and feeling a little bit nostalgic for pumpkin patches and peach cobbler!! Because I haven’t had much time to create new content for you guys, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite fall pieces. These products are all super versatile and can be worn a million different ways, but I’ve grouped them into a few outfits that I think are really cute so that you can see how I’d wear them! These pieces transition so well from playdate to date night and you can easily mix and match everything for more outfits.
My mom always said, shaking her finger just like moms do, “I hope you have a daughter just like you one day”!!! Growing up I just wanted to be heard! And I pushed the boundaries, made up my own rules and just did what I wanted. My poor mother. She’s loved me and supported me my whole entire life, even when I wasn’t always deserving. But I guess that’s the beautiful thing about family. It means that you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life, no matter what.
Fast forward to today and sure enough, I’ve got a daughter JUST. LIKE. ME.
