I make my bed solely so I won’t be tempted to get back in it. But when Raleigh gives you the Pat Pat Swirl, πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ›. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Also had to say thank you for everyone who weighed in on my Small Fry post poll. If I ever need a confidence boost I know right where to come! 😭πŸ₯° Because of that poll, FRYday is back on the blog today it’s is jam packed.🀭Happy weekend everyone!!

The PANTRY, revealed! πŸ’« I teamed up with @motts (#sponsored) to share how we tackle crazy mornings, lunch packing and car snacking! Our pantry systems make it all a snap and I’m walking you through it all on Small Fry today! (And the good bad and ugly live tour on stories!!πŸ₯΄) We snagged their new juice pouches at @dollargeneral, 🀞🏼you all have one nearby!! β€’β€’β€’ #dollargeneral #DGeasymeals #pantrytour #pantryorganization #cleaneatssnackdrawer

Took the morning to just see my kids. To lay on the cold concrete with the sun warming our cheeks. To listen to whatever is on their minds, to follow them up hills and through crunchy snow. To laugh at their silly jokes and feel their soft blond heads. Sometimes I forget what a privilege it is. And that for all my loud sighing and eye rolling, I really do love being their mom. ✘ ✘ ✘

If I had to sum up anxiety in a photo... Preparing for storms that hardly ever come.β˜”οΈ @deseretnews has been doing such awesome work with their series on Teen Anxiety and they asked me to write about my experience! I’ll link the essay in my stories, but I felt impressed to share how to love someone who deals with this disorder. How to talk to them. How to understand what it’s like inside their stormy mind, inside a body that they can’t control. I didn’t have the vocabulary to name it until I was 19 years old, but I know I struggled far longer than that! I pray no one ever has to feel like they’re the only one, alone, struggling. β€’β€’β€’ #anxietyawareness #teenanxiety #deseretnews

Winter whites are cute in theory, until you realize you sat in chocolate chips on the way to church. I’d blame the boys, but they were probably mine anyway. 😜 Happy Sunday!!

I can’t say enough thank yous πŸ™πŸΌ for all your sweet words yesterday! I’m so happy that what was once a source of shame and guilt could evolve into something worthwhile. Want to hear something ironic? I almost didn’t post it, because I didn’t think it was good enough. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌSelf-doubt is real my friends, and I’m so happy I have so many of you joining me in quieting that voice and just doing good. Here for it all, 2019!!

Oh, 2018. You were a tough broad that ruled with an iron fist. I could write a novel probably, there was so much to learn this year. Looking for a photo to go with it it all, this one felt most important. I passed this woman on the left with a baby the same age as mine on her hip a couple times while we both shopped for food. Each time looking into her eyes, smiling, and feeling that nagging feeling to help. And then, right behind her in line to check-out. β€œHelp her. Help her.” swirled through my thoughts. I saw her carefully calculating her groceries with a small envelope of cash, had some hilariously stupid inner-doubt (she’s probably doing Dave Ramseyβœ‰οΈ, don’t bug her!πŸ™„πŸ˜‚) but silenced it and reached for my wallet when she started to put some things back. In that same moment the women on the right πŸ‘†πŸΌpassed from behind me in line, swiping her card and assuring this young mother no one should have to put groceries back. 😭 She was in utter disbelief someone would want to do this for her. They, me, everyone in line, the checker, all cried. In 2019, I am flexing my COURAGE to ACT. Resolving to listen to my gut and move! Fear, anxiety and the need for the perfect time or circumstances have often paralyzed me from putting good into the world, so if nothing else this image will remind me not to let it pass me by in 2019. And so here’s my favorite question: (that my entire family groans when I ask each year) what was the best lesson YOU learned in 2018? #smallfryquotes

Current status of my PJs too, Raleigh. 🐽 For all of you parents hustling tonight, I hope even for a moment tomorrow when your little one’s faces light up, you realize YOU are the magic in their world. πŸ’« Merry Christmas to all!!

What age did you or your kids start doing their own laundry? I asked this the other day and was thoroughly impressed with so many of you whose kids are handling it!! πŸ‘πŸΌ πŸ‘πŸΌ I was 12 when I started, and my kids fold and put theirs away, but they can definitely handle more. As promised, I put up a post with the info I gathered on Small Fry! #riveting🀣 β€’β€’β€’ #framefarme #marazzitile

🎼Oh there’s no place like home for the holidays! β™‘ I’m sharing our Christmas card for this year on Small Fry today and a few more images from our shoot with @hunterkfowlerphoto! And 🀫, but if you scroll one more post down I put 10 years of our Christmas cards all together, 4 of which have never been published before. Some of them are 🀣. But so to look back at them all and share what was really happening behind the scenes. One more week!! 🎊

I told them they could throw snowballs at me for this pic. And on the next slideπŸ‘‰πŸΌ you will see what happened when they hit me square in the chest. Never happier. 🀣😳 Two blog posts to check out this weekend! ➊ Holiday Best fashion round up for kids! βž‹ My tried and true boy gift ideas. Things that have been loved and played for hours, years, across phases and friends. HAPPY WEEKEND!!

On a scale from 1-10 how much do you think Russ loved taking this pic. πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸ“‰More importantly this wreath is back in stock!! πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌ
