Life here has been busy folks…
I miss my little space here, I miss interacting with all of you and I plan to get my act together and put things right here.
But, just to give you an idea of what my days look like, a little peek in the lovely chaos that is my life….
You see, I start my days with those three little lovelies in bed with me. It never fails – the day starts with the twins crying out for me from their room to come and get them. I open their door and they sleepily hobble down the hall, their little ‘B’s in hand, hair in disarray and make a beeline for my bed.
A short time later, Jordan will make her way too and climb in and we have a full bed of girls. On the weekends, Daddy is squished in there too because he actually gets to sleep in instead of leaving before the sun comes up.
It has gotten to a point that the girls will not go downstairs in the morning without proper cuddle and cartoon time in “Mommy’s bed”. They do it after nap time too…
I love it and simply treasure this little routine that has developed. It forces me to slow down each day and just “be” with my girls.
Once I do wiggle out of the cuddle time, I creep down for some coffee. Usually, this only happens because I’ve been ordered to bring them each a toaster waffle to munch on or a banana while they finish their latest obsessive TV show (currently, Doc McStuffins or Chuggingtons – yes, plural according to Charlotte) – yes, I let my children eat in my bed.
Sure, the crunching of goldfish when I hop into bed is annoying…but these days will be gone sooner than I would like them to, so I’m letting the fish creep in with the waffles and bananas.
Back to coffee.
Coffee is a must to start my day. See that little handy-dandy Keurig up there? It gives me my one cup at a time so my coffee doesn’t get cold. A must with small children and constant interruptions that come with tending to them.
I don’t know how that happened, but I must have my coffee time and just a bit of Today’s Show to get my day rolling while I start my work.
Speaking of work.
I have been blessed with a fantastic new job that allows me to read blogs, interact with bloggers and other moms on the daily. I recently became the Blog Coordinator at EverydayFamily.com and the team I work with is lovely and that stack of blogger/business cards you see up there in that photo? I can actually stop by each and every one of them as a part of my job!
It’s really such a good fit and while I have been swamped with setting up EverydayFamily’s new blogger network – I am thriving and loving it.
But, as a result, I’ve neglected my own blog a bit. I have hope to change that now that the network is up and running and we have things moving along. I hope you’ll stick around and read me from time to time even still.
The final part of my day? Usually ends with some shenanigans throughout my home – dress-up, caravans of cars wheeling about the house, squealing games that bring joy just by watching. Finally, after all are in bed…a glass of wine and putting my feet up. And, if I’m lucky, a few laughs with the husband and/or some good friends on the weekend.
