Motherhood

I have the best job in the world. I'm the boss, I LOVE my employees (I'm pretty sure they dig me, too), the pay is fantastic (hugs and kisses and the best memories imaginable), I can go to work in my jammies, and make/eat cupcakes whenever I want. Sounds dreamy, huh? I'm not exactly dying to back to an office anytime soon...



I was talking to a friend last night and trying to explain how things were going for us over here. After talking for a while, I said something to the effect of - "There's just not much else going on. Every day is pretty much the same. Sorry we're boring." My words didn't sit right with me and I got to thinking. We're not boring at all. Every single day is jam packed with action. Just not the action that sounds super cool in words. But trust me when I say that I'm having the time of my life. My husband and kids are literally my whole world. And it's great. Who wants to hear about how cool my kids and husband are? Probably no one, cause that's annoying. But fact: the three of them are the 3 cutest/smartest/most awesome/(insert any other wonderful adjective here)/greatest people on the planet. I wake up and get everyone dressed (Taylor can do this part all by himself) and fed, make the beds, do some laundry or clean something, take Warren to preschool, watch some sweet cartoons, play on the ground, try a new recipe, color, go to the grocery store, go to a park, go to a museum, go to hobby lobby, organize something, clean the tornado, make dinner, give baths, etc. All very boring tasks - except that I get to do them with/for my family. This little life of mine is all my dreams come true. We have a great marriage, healthy and adorable kids, supportive and loving family, a job for Taylor that allows me to stay home and pay all our bills, good friends, and a warm house. Sorry if it's boring to anyone else, but it's the most fun I've ever had.

oh not boring at all! I LOVE posts like this. Sometimes when trials hit, I crave those "boring" days. They're lovely.

If you had changed the names in that post to Paul and Madelyn, I would have written it. I totally feel the same way. What an awesome life, right?

Oooh, it has been far too long since I checked your blog, so many fun and adorable posts!!! That Cami is getting cuter by the second. And that's sayin' something because she was BORN cute!!!

Hey, your fun job sounds a lot like my fun job :) We are very lucky to have what we have.

And I have to say, just one more time, how DANG CUTE your kids are. Love the pictures, love them.

Do your kids and husband know how seriously awesome you are? I expect an equally nice post from Taylor in the near future about his amazing wife :) I love your attitude about life and being a mom. It really is the best gig out there.

I love that picture of them both leaning on the bed, they just look so cute and happy. And I love the pictures of Warren making pancakes, what a great smile. :)
