Seasons of parenting change. Your baby starts sleeping, mostly through the night. School starts back and you have a minute to breath everyday. Your kids get bigger and less needy and you only sorta wish they wouldn’t. You make time, that you didn’t think you had, for work that fills your cup. You schedule time for date nights and girl friends, not because it’s easy but because it’s necessary. Your “to do” list grows from “shower, feed littles, sleep” to “find new recipes, paint the front door, clean out the closets” (or whatever you enjoy 😉) Your laundry pile isn’t always overwhelming. Nor is the pile of dishes in the sink. Baseball caps are sometimes replaced with blow outs. You find your makeup drawer again and open it occasionally. You read a non-parenting book. You have time to truly see your littles and holy heaven, they are amazing. You reconnect with yourself, your partner, your friends. You have thoughts and make plans and try to get better. Mostly at loving. .
If you are here, let’s get coffee sometime. If you’re not, let me bring you coffee sometime. There are so many seasons, mama, and even the better ones have tough moments. Hang in there. And seriously, let me bring you coffee☕️ or tea or wine 🍷and we can just chat about how beautiful and messy this life is. .
