Shelby Sayers  Should really be James and Vada's instagram, let's be honest.

Also I was channeling my inner Rachel Green yesterday.

This boy is the biggest ham.

V is not a morning person, so I have been trying hard to put her down before 9pm every night. She used to go to bed at 7:30 habitually but since moving combined with the arrival of longer days and not having put curtains in her room yet, she hasn't been getting to bed until 9:30-10:00 most nights.
Which makes for a very grumpy girl in the morning. And I feel her, I too am no morning person.
So tonight we read a book and had a snuggle and she was in bed by 8:30. I went to have a bath and didn't hear a sound so I took that as a success! She has fallen asleep! She hadn't.
I come out of the bathroom and the door to her room is wide open. I start down the stairs about ready to explode at her and tell her to go to bed for the millionth time, and I came upon this.
A little girl fighting sleep so strongly only to have lost her battle on the stairs.
These are the humbling moments. That after a tiring day of this little lady asking me for snack after snack after snack, I can feel my heart softened instantly seeing my not-so-baby baby in her footy pyjamas. #vadakathryn

"Mommy, do you want to see my booger?" -V "Haha, no." -Me
Vada opens her mouth. ๐Ÿ˜ณ #vadakathryn


The second picture kills me. #vjsayers

I asked James if we could take a picture to send to dad and he stood there posing like this, tongue out and all. Also Ignore that box in the background. We are unpacked, it's just covering some serious carpet damage from our Pup-terror, miss Freya. #jsayers

You can go ahead and ignore my foot sneaking into the picture, because look at how OLD they are getting?! ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป#vjsayers

You guys, I am so tired. Like I literally struggle to get through a day without taking a nap. I have marathonned like three shows in the past week, I have two baskets of clean laundry (at least they're clean) that need to be folded as you can see in the picture above, I am pretty certain that I need glasses, I have about 1000 things I need to do before we leave for Johns tournament in Penticton this weekend (no kids, woo!) but at least Miley Cyrus and I are rocking the same hair, hello massive roots being in style ๐Ÿ˜Ž #myliferightmeow #ineedamaid #andacook #andawellpayingjob #sendcookies #andapersonaltrainer #andmaybealifecoach

"We'll be friends forever won't we pooh?" asked Piglet. "Even longer," Pooh answered.

Today I want to wish every woman a happy Mother's Day, whether they are a mother now to babies on earth, to babies in heaven, or babies in their hopes and dreams. Today can be a difficult day for many women, but I think today is a day we should bring each other up and encourage one another more than ever.
Love all of the strong and beautiful "mothers" in my life. Keep on keeping on beauties.

Mothers Day came early for me this year, (mostly because Vada is too young to keep secret what they got me). This present is simple but is probably one of the best presents I have ever received. John asked Vada what she wanted to get me for Mother's Day and she thought for a moment then said, "Soap, cheese, flowers and cream." She then proceeded to pick each one of these things out herself. Pink flowers, of course, goat Bree cheese because she liked that there was a goat on it, green soap and pink lotion. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ I am so thankful for my family you guys. Enjoy the mothers in your life, including yourself if you are one!
