Mother’s Day weekend was so nice. We cleaned up the house, I got caught up on laundry and we got to spend time with friends and family. I call that a pretty good weekend. Friday, we had some of our sweet friends over for pizza and let the kids play outside. They loved having their friends over, and their parents are some of our good friends, so it was nice having grown-ups to visit with while the kids ran wild! We also met some new neighbors which was fun! I love meeting other moms that live near us and have kids who are around the same age as mine.
On Sunday, we went to church and then stopped by my mom and dad’s before heading to Ryan’s parent’s house for lunch. We sort of made our rounds like we do most holidays, but it is always fun getting to see all of our family in the same day. Our hearts were full…and so were our bellies thanks to my MIL’s yummy cooking!
You may have seen from my IG post last night that my kids were not in the best mood, but the day wasn’t entirely that way. Only parts of it. My kids seem to always struggle on special days. I felt like Sophie was tired from the moment she woke up and we nearly pulled an all-nighter with Hamp and Weston the night before, so we were all in a zombie state all day. But, like my post said, this is our life right now. Everyone reminds me constantly that it passes so quickly, and it really does. It is flying by before my eyes. I want to bottle them up as they are right now, but I can’t. I am just trying to soak up every bit of this because I know one day, they won’t need me like they do now and I won’t know what to do with myself. So, for now, I will take them just as they are. Grumpy, dirty diapers, all-nighters, sleepy smiles, the best hugs and slobbery kisses and “I love you mommy’s” before bed. They are my babies and I couldn’t imagine doing life any other way than we are doing it right now.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
