Last Saturday we had a ton of errands to run, and by a ton of errands I mean we had to drive three hours to Ikea and buy more furniture haha!! Does it evvver end?! Naturally I dressed very casual in a graphic tee and my dirty chucks. I need to get those suckers in the wash already!! Anyway, I woke up early and while the kids were eating breakfast and watching their daily dose of Daniel Tiger I asked Brian if we could just take a few quick pictures out front for the b-log. Because when momma puts on pants and does her makeup it absolutely needs to be documented! Oh hi neighbors, I’m just taking more pictures of myself (insert see no evil monkey here)! First off, welcome to my home. Err… garage! It was too cold to pour the driveway or level out our yard and do any exterior paniting when we moved in in December so pretty much our landscaping looks suuuper awesome. I’m acutally growing quite fond of the rocks as our makeshift driveway. Savy loves collecting them and turning them into little families and just the other day Boston and his new friend were hurling them at cars as they drove by. When I realized what they were doing I
hobbled ran over as fast as I could to scold them, teach them all about how we don’t throw rocks at cars. At the same time an expensive looking SUV was making a quick U-turn. Luckily five years olds can’t throw very far and the SUV hadn’t been damaged but the driver wanted my reassurance that it would never happen again. As if I can control anything at this point my kids do haha!
ANYWAY, wow I’m just full of tangents today! A few minutes into our shoot, little Savy girl came barreling out of the house in her coat and boots and said “Can I take pictures with you momma”! It really was the sweetest thing. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I’m going to be a good mother to four kids, if it’s even possible. I’ve decided nothing but a crazy amount of love and patience is going to get me through the next couple of years. But if I can love them and make them each feel needed and important, everything is going to be okay. The beautiful thing about children is their ability to forgive. No matter how many times I mess up as their mom they’re always forgiving me and loving me anyway. While being a mom is so stressful, it’s the greatest gift I’ve been given. I feel extremely lucky to have two more little spirits brought into our home!
I hope you guys had a fabulous Easter weekend and I’ll see you back here in a day or two. MUAAAH xoxo!
