A Little Bit Superwoman


I type this as I hear Gray's sock feet pitter-pattering across the kitchen floor. You always hear people speak fondly of "the pitter patter of little feet," but how often do we take the moment to actually listen? It's adorable if you do.


Yesterday morning I awoke early to start on a pot of minestrone soup for family that just came home from the hospital. I also had to get ready for a hair appt and Gray woke up... I had a 1st- I blow-dried my hair while nursing!

There was a moment in the salon where I was sitting with a cup of hot lemon tea, listening to my toy, and knitting a Christmas present... in peace. I savored the moment. It was good.

After my brief getaway, it was back to reality at home and I finished up the soup and also made a batch of cookies to take, too! Hubby had taken Noah & Carter out for the day with him doing "guy stuff" and Gray and I ran our errands.

After dinner we all put on our warm pj's, hopped in the van, and went driving around looking at holiday lights.

It was just one of those good mom and good dad days.

I write about the good days, the funny things the kids say, and maybe an inspiring few words here & there. What you don't see is me barely getting out of my pj's before noon somedays, the dishes in the sink, and that the beds are still unmade.

I choose to remember the good days, the filled days, fulfilled days. It's good to know that sometimes everything does allign just right, and superwoman just might show up.

But even when she doesn't, I like to feel like she's a little bit in there all the time anyway...

  1. I LOVE the pitter patter of little feet and am looking forward to it again. But the clomp clomp of children feet that sound like elephants at 7am - well, that's something else.

    And quite talented with the nursing. Not quite sure how you did that.

    I LOVE going looking at Christmas lights. Have never done it in PJ's before, but might have to start now!

  11. Trust me- it is better to do the good stuff with the kids. That's the part you and they will remember. On their "deathbed" no ever wished they had made their beds and washed dishes earlier, but they may have wished for more time with the kids. They truly do grow up so fast! It's hard to believe that my "baby" is now 35. Where did the time go?

  13. I love it when I can take the time and LISTEN. We are so busy that sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the moments and not STOP and listen, ya know? I need to do it more. Cause it won't always be there. SO SAD!

  14. I laugh at how alike we are: touring in the minivan while wearing PJS and looking at Christmas lights!!! We just did that a few days ago. :)

    I know I commented already, but had to add!!
