Quotes to Remember

“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.”

― Catherine M. Wallace

Stella walks down the stairs just after breakfast with her hands on her hips and her face full of an expression that she had something to say.

“Mom look. I just had to change my jammas. They were making me stressed and nervous!”

{says the girl who in the past adores lounging in her pajamas past lunch time}.

^running 4.5 miles three to four times a week

^how well the girls play together these days; this is how I found them all one morning when I woke up

^how Eden loves to hold me close; she feels safest closest to my heart

^the time when I forgot your shoes Stella on the hood of my car and how we retraced our drive we found them in the middle of the street. {It was so sad to see the shoes your baby adores that protect her little piggy toes, trampled on and dirty by cars passing on the street}

^my twinsies; big E and little E

^how Stella’s babies are absolutely real to her.

- ^the day tantrums and tears were at an all time high and mommy’s patience was at an all time low and how I drove around until all three of you fell asleep. I then drove the car onto the grass in our front yard underneath the shade of one of our big trees, rolled down all the windows and began reading a book on parenting that changed my life.

^our brand new family room floor. It is so glossy it looks like a swimming pool!

^how cool forts are to kids!

^how much Norah loves her dance class; this was her favorite teacher named Devin.

^the necklace Matt gave me for our 6th anniversary.

^celebrating my grandfather’s birthday. He is so appreciative of any act of kindness.

^play dates and friend’s houses’
