From the outside, looking in motherhood is totally rosy.  Don't get me wrong, it is pretty grand.  But there are times when I think, "Really?  Realllly…"

You know the time when Sophia littered our entire living room with crinkled red paper.

Perhaps I had those thoughts on days like this one when I let go of control so a toddler can experiment with using a spoon.

Or when crazy shenanigans always seem to happen around the Tide box!?  Like a mouse being hidden by Sophia or Miss Moreaya {being way too quiet one morning} trying to wash cloth diapers herself!?

But guess what – those moments are very few and far between.  Ok, not that far between because my house is completely wild and crazy with two girls that are 18 months and 3, but totally worth it

But that is indeed the #sparklingtruth of being a mother, isn't it?  Even when things aren't going quite so bubbly, we wouldn't trade our life for anything else in the world.  That doesn't mean I don't need to take a few moments for myself every now and then.  Honestly, I think that's what helps with my carefree, laugh at it now because you'll definitely be laughing about it in 5 years, attitude.

I try to live with the rememberance to not take everything so seriously, to kick my feet up, enjoy the bubbly {even if it's not champs}, and live life with them not only just watching them.

  1. OMG! i cannot wait to let go of control to my baby to be ! you have cute kids ! it is so nice to have one day or let's say half day and let the kids do whatever they want :) thanks for reminding me of this idea . i cannot wait till my baby will be on my hands . 

  2. ok, sorry- but I completely lol'd over the confetti. Mostly because, my three year old did something similar the other night. With spaghetti noodles. All over the kitchen. And dining room. Have you ever tried to sweep or vaccuum up uncooked spaghetti noodles?? Doesn't work. I swear I had to pick up each one by hand, or so it seemed lol. I'm still finding pieces of noodles hidden in corners, days later!
