Thankful for A House Full of Boys

With Thanksgiving a week away I can’t help but reflect on where I am today, in the moment.

Today I am the mother of two young boys, one a spunky 3.5 the other just 2 weeks old and hanging right now in my baby wearing sling.  My 3.5 year old is at pre-school so I am home with just my little guy listening to the sweet sounds of a newborn as he is cozy and warm and dreaming of, I assume, milk.

At times it has been absolute madness around here, with everything happening at the same time: newborn crying, dog needing to go outside, dinner burning, pre-schooler jumping off the stairs… husband downstairs “cleaning.”  In those moments I can’t help but feel overwhelmed.  Then, the moment passes and all is calm and wonderful once again.  Everyone is helping out and I once again can let myself breath and enjoy my house full of boys. Taking in the moments and enjoying the ride of this crazy wonderful life.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

In March and April, my then-two-year-old got a combined total of 7 stitches, and yesterday, my five-year-old got a cast. I'm feeling like a bad mom.
