Mommy Monday

I hear so many people say, though they love being a mom, the miss the "woman" they used to be. They say they miss being a person, forget who they are, and need some "me" time.

I don't disagree with this, certainly don't think it's wrong to feel this way, and can even partially attest to needing a break to do something I like to do, HOWEVER:

I can honestly say, I never knew who I was created to be until I became a mom. This is what God made me for and, although exhausting, my girls are the greatest gifts I could have ever been given.

Random Blog

This isn't a Tips and Hints Tuesday blog. I haven't blogged in forever. I have a lot to say, but no time to write it down these days...So, here's a LONG update.

Things have been a little crazy since my grandfather passed away. It's just sad. I look at pictures and I just can't wrap my brain about it. How could he have been here 3 weeks ago and now he's just gone. Where exactly is he? I mean, I know he's in heaven, but I don't really know where that is at the moment. It's just weird.

Last night, we had a Nexus staff meeting at our house. I guess if you really want a TIP for this TUESDAY here's one: Don't buy those gas fire pits. I borrowed my parents and the propane tank caught on fire. No one was injured, but my lawn chairs were abused and the three fire trucks disrupted my quiet street. We got some laughs out of the deal, though!

Hannah is home for the summer and I was so nervous she'd be bored all day. I know it's just been a couple of days, but I just adore my girls and love having her home! She is AMAZING with Emma! Sometimes I'm afraid I put too much on her, but I have been able to get so much done because Hannah entertains her, gives her a paci, puts the boppy around her so she doesn't fall over, and wipes her spit up with a burp cloth. She is just one swell kid!

Today we hung out in the morning, went to lunch with my mom and then headed to the park for an hour and a half. It was so nice! Then after coming home and putting Emma to bed, Hannah and I played the piano and sang together. So fun! I'm really enjoying teaching her how to play and sing with harmony. I don't care if I sound like I dork; if you could have seen that sweet face singing "You Lifted Me Out" with her eyes closed and her hands clasped together, you would have melted right a long with me.

Hopefull I'll be back soon!
