This Year's Word

Last year I tried something new, and liked it. So I will give it another whirl.

My word is COURAGE.
the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.

All too often I find myself secretly envying the woman who can do it all. You know...the one with the clean house, healthy meal on the table, rockin body, well behaved kids, super chic style, nails always painted, smile on her face, perfect person. And because of that woman I have felt lost in unrealistic expectations.

But not this year, this year is different. I am gonna be the perfectly imperfect me! I'm gonna do things my way, because I want to and I need to. I'm gonna have the courage to be stronger than my own fear. To shut those stupid insecurities out of my life. To be me. And that is perfect.

In college my mom framed the following quote for me:
doesn't always roar-
sometimes courage is
the quiet voice at
the end of the day
"i will try
Maryanne Radmacher

And that's exactly what I'm gonna do.

Today. Tomorrow. And the next day.

I Don't Believe It

They say things get easier with time. I say that's a BIG. FAT. LIE.
"Mama I need to go na-night. Go away!", Camden said to me at 6am as I tried to wake him up to go to the sitters.

Someday we won't have to do this.

Rainy Day In A Box

What do you do for fun when it rains all week?
We have lunch in a giant box with Steadman Stegosaurus and Terry Pterodactyl.
