My sweet baby was in the hospital yesterday with a 103.3 temperature. this was my first time seeing him in so much pain and i couldn’t stop wishing it was me instead of him. he’s doing so much better today, but still wants all the snuggles (which of course i happily oblige☺️). all of this has made made me realize how precious days are with him💛
Soooo...i may be jumping the gun here, but i did a poll in my stories asking if you’d like to see a ‘cleaning power hour while the boys are awake’ video..and most of you were all about it! so, naturally i’m going to do a bath time video too!! this will for sure be a learning process..so be kind 😉

Why do our kids never listen when we tell them to stop growing up so fast? so rude😭

Hadley’s reaction every time we needed to leave the beach over the last 4 days.
the bear is buttons- he’s her preschool buddy and he lived with us the past week and went on adventures with our family. he has to go on to another family today and she’s pretty torn up about it. i’ll post some of the story in my story 👆🏻
I couldn’t believe it when someone asked me, “are you taking the semester off?” i was 19 years old and 6 months pregnant going to nursing school. i felt offended! heck no, i’m not taking the semester off. i don’t know if it was because i was young and naive but i took it as an insult, like because i was a teenager, i couldn’t manage to continue on my path. well i did. i had my son, went back to school when he was 6 days off, work up at 5am to get him and i ready and off to school for 12 hours shifts many days. that summer i realized nursing wasn’t my calling. i always knew i wanted to help and serve others but realizing the hardships that come from a small-town hospital nurse (after working at the hospital that summer) i was out! i felt like a failure, i was suppose to be the first to graduate college and instead i dropped out 1 year short. who can relate? now i know that was a blessing, that took me on the path to finding my dream career years later and being in control of my own time. sometimes through our journey we go down paths we are not proud of, things we know we are better than but i just want to remind you today, it is apart of your journey. stop being so h*****n yourself and cherish the now. i wish i was better at that when my son was young because now, looking back, i don’t remember much and it makes me so sad! so i hope this give you hope to know that you are worthy, slow down and cherish those little moments because they really are the big ones, and lastly, go after your calling!!!!
