What Motherhood Means To…Jehava

I am a mother to 3 boys. Their ages are 11, 9 and 3.

I became a mother at 20 and it was the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for. It took me from a self –centered life to constantly caring and thinking about another individual.

This changed my perspective on the entire world.

What Motherhood Means To…Meghan

What does motherhood mean to me?

It means constantly cleaning up toys. Occasionally stepping on legos. Scooping poop out of the bathtub.

Cutting the crust off of each sandwich. Continually wiping snotty noses until you just throw in the towel and let it drip. And yelling “GO TO SLEEP” five hundred and sixty-two times every night.

But even more than that, it is the most glorious and rewarding dream-come-true I could ever experience during life on this earth.

This extraordinary woman is a wonderful friend, and I’m so proud of all she’s accomplishing and in awe of what the Lord has done! Here are some thoughts from Summer herself.

Why Being A Girl Is Awesome

When do your children return to school? My preschooler doesn’t go back until next week, and while a few of the days have felt extraaaaaa looooong, lol, I’ve been experiencing the greatest joy in watching my daughters interact. 

Lily is fiesty as ever and most certainly a terrific two 😬, and my Alex seems so mature!!

They keep growing up on me and as much as I protest they don’t listen! Ha!

This age yields lots of matching outfits (I will hold on to the twinning for as long as I can), and our days are chalk full of interesting conversations.  

Inspired by these adorable and empowering dresses from Princess Awesome, tonight’s bedtime discussion was fueled by the question “What makes girls so awesome?”. Here’s what my 4 year old had to say!

Disclaimer: These dresses were received free for my review, but my love for them is completely genuine!

A Thankful Heart

Is it just me or did the month of November fly by?! I know we have a few days left, but we’ll be in December before we know it!

Now let’s get to a few more reasons why I’m thankful!
