Today marks the beginning and the end in our family. The beginning of all 3 of my babies in school all day every day and it marks the end of a chapter in my motherhood that I am neither ready for and having a hard time accepting its here.

I remember after our second was born thinking I can’t imagine what it will be like when they started school but than soon after baby girl came along and I do truly believe because they are so close in age it made for some things to blur together next thing I knew oldest and middle where both starting school. Big sister went 3 full days a week and little man went 2 mornings and so it was a gradual adjustment. Than the past two years they have been going all day every day but I have had sissy (that is Lyric’s nickname) at home plus our different foster loves so yes I have missed them but Ive still been busy and even when out foster loves would have access visits me and my baby girl would have one on one time and I loved it but now – today – it all changes. 

Sure this is how life goes and I knew deep down this day would come but I didn’t know it would come this fast nor did I prepare myself for how I would feel. How does one really prepare for this though? I feel guilty for not having a job right now. Like in some ways I feel like I should be going off to my job now while they are at school and although Im still mom, I still have my foster love who needs me and I still have mom things to do – house clean, meals to make I am use to having to do all that plus take care of my babies. My sweet friend reminded me last night that Cove just like his mommy finds change hard not exciting like his sisters do. I love change sure but after I have time to process it but this – this whole time to my self thing will take time to adjust to. I hate not knowing what they are doing at school. Wonder if they miss me as much as I miss them? I hope not and don’t think they do cause let me tell you they have the best teachers who make learning exciting and love on them and make them feel safe so I am so thankful for that. I will tell you I can’t wait till that bell rings cause you better believe I am picking them up today I can’t wait one more second to kiss their cheeks off and hear all about their days. 

Motherhood is by far the hardest thing Ive ever had to do but it is also the best and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Wishing time would slow down but since I know it won’t I just gotta embrace each day and soak in the moments I have with my babies because next thing I know they will be moving out…

  • Today felt like New Years Day with the kiddies back at school hubby back at work and I was worried I would be so lonely but instead found out that my hours ran out before my to-do list was finished! Crazy to think all these pages (months) of my calendar will be filled in no time. And yes I use a digital calendar on my phone but I like using a paper one as well... anyone else?
  • Happy New Year!! We partied hard last night and we are feeling it today.... ok we’ll maybe the partied hard part isn’t entirely true but nevertheless we are laying low today any one else doing the same? #timetocleanmymirror #excuseisijustmoved #timetowakeupdaddy
  • A decade! 10 whole years ... wow! It’s really hard to recap all that has happened but safe to say the past 10 years have been the best and yet hardest years of my life. I’ve been stretched in ways I didn’t know I could, I’ve grown deeper in my relationship with Jesus, I’ve learned the value of true friends, celebrated 10 years of marriage, seen the biggest answers to prayer in my life- I became a mom (not just once but 3 times over) I watched my dad fight (and thankfully) beat cancer, we bought our first home, we’ve moved 6 times, built 2 houses, welcomed over 10 babies into our hearts and homes, said more painful goodbyes than I like to count, taken many trips, had some not so great medical diagnoses and yet here we are! I have no idea what 2020 has in store but I’m excited for it! #happynewyear #2020herewecome
  • ✨All is calm, all is bright! ✨The best way to start Jesus Birthday celebrations is by going to our Christmas Eve service at church. Thinking of those who tomorrow will be hard for and thankful for those first responders, hospital staff and my much needed @Starbucks employees who are working tomorrow praying a special blessing on each of you!
  • Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Who is running off coffee and wishing they had their little peoples energy? I can’t be the only one ... 2 days to go!!!🎄
  • He’s the calm to my storm he gives me the support and encouragement needed when I feel overwhelmed! When I look back on the past 2 years heck even the last 6 months I am blown away by how much we have gone through and yet we are stronger for it - we are better for it! The future although not completely mapped out is less scary and more exciting knowing I’m walking into it with you by my side! Thankful for you @tspinksy #crazyfaith #bestyes
