MOST RECENT

Our poor mini-man has been sick all morning. I was hoping that he was feeling better when he asked for a popsicle but no such luck - he got sick, again, about 15 minutes after this picture was taken. Hoping it doesn't last too long

Today's #megamotherhood challenge is favorite.

Moments, like this mini-golfing moment, are my favorite. Seeing my boys so engrossed and interested in something so simple warms my heart. They don't need a huge house or a million toys or fancy vacations - they just need us.

Today's #megamotherhood challenge is #plottwist
So this one is something I've dealt with my whole life - I wasn't planned. That's not the part that bothers me. What bothers me is I was told this continuously throughout my childhood.

My family was quite poor and both of my parents worked multiple jobs to make ends meet. I felt this was my fault because I wasn't planned. If only I'd been born later, our lives might've been different.
My relatives made it know too. I constantly felt like a lesser person - like I didn't quite belong in the family; that I'd ruined my mom/dad's life some how.

Today, I know this is complete and utter bull****. I didn't ask to be born. I wasn't walking around some and thought "oooo - maybe I should mess up their lives". My parents were adult and responsible for their lives - not me.

I've gone through a lot of therapy and self-discovery to realize this. It was hard but now I'm a very happy person who loves her kids to death. I am determined that they know that they are loved and wanted.

#megamotherhood day #10 : Mug

This isn't my mug. The only mug in own is black. And, quite frankly, I don't use it that often. I have a little one who loves to grab anything I'm holding - which isn't fun when it's fill with hot tea. Instead, I stick to water bottles that the kids can grab and it won't spill.

This is a mug I can relate to - especially today. After a fun day yesterday, we had a rough night - mini-man was covered in bug bites and little-dude had a fever. So my goal today is to keep everyone alive. @jamerrillstewart .

#megamotherhood challenge day #9 : Required for Sanity

Writing. Good, bad, or uneventful, I write. It helps me download my thoughts each day so they don't get jumbled in my head. It helps me figure out situations. And, it helps my marriage. By writing, I write out and figure out my own feelings without exploding or hurting anyone. Then I can camly express what I'm feeling.
I didn't start writing until a few years ago, when I started in PR. I always had these crazy characters in my head but I never wrote them down.

Then I realized that writing became a way for me to work things out. If I'm having a particularly hard day, I usually couldn't sleep for trying to figure it out. Now, I write it down and I feel loads better. I guess it gives me a sense of control over my thoughts.

Now I have several books in the works, and a blog - I try to write every day just to write and it helps me keep my balance. .

#megamotherhood day #6: breakfast .

I'm definitely a person who gets hangry. So I always have breakfast. It's usually a bowl of cereal. And, it's almost always, with this little guy, who wants to share my breakfast.

Confession: I hate coffee. I love the smell but can't stand the taste of coffee. So I'm in the minority of Mom's and don't like Starbucks.
Instead, I'm obsessed with tea, particularly @twiningsteauk
And @numiorganictea
Hot or cold, I love tea. I'm also the grand daughter of a southern lady, who made an amazing iced tea - so @homecominfl tea is perfect for me!

#megamotherhood day 4: routine

I don't recognize this word - roo-teen. I'm a mom of two boys under three. My day consists chasing two children around trying to feed them, entertain them, teach them, and getting them to sleep. I consider the day a success if we can go to bed without a meltdown. And, to be honest, I love it! .
