This is motherhood


This is motherhood. Funny thing? This was one beautiful, shining moment amidst a day of tantrums. Tantrums are motherhood, too.

This photo makes me incredibly happy. I told Evan to smile at the camera, and he did it! How crazy is that?

  1. Motherhood is the best…every minute of every day!

  2. Cute pic. The thing I have found through the years of mommyhood…just when you have a tantrum throwing day (mom too), when you look at them asleep in their beds later that night, you just want to climb in with them and tell them you’re sorry how the day went and that you’re sorry you ever thought they were less than perfect. I just love that part.

  3. If my hair looked that good on a day full of tantrums I would be one happy mama! :) seriously. You have cute hair!

  4. Those shining moments make the rest do-able. Loving your new look!
