One of the things I try and hope to do on this blog is be authentic and real. Whether sharing my heart, our story or the ups and downs in this journey of life. Now as I am three months into this adventure of motherhood I think it’s important to do the same.
You may find yourself laughing or nodding your head, but hopefully in sharing it’s a way to provide some camaraderie. Also to know that it’s okay if you don’t always have it altogether and are light years behind the Joneses. The days that start with 3 cups of coffee and end with a glass of wine or two!
So welcome to our ordinary, everyday life. Which is also sometimes a bit crazy!
A few weeks ago we purchased the empty lot behind our house. The realtor was coming over on a Saturday morning for us to sign the paperwork. A bit of humble pie when the doorbell rings and she pulls up in her Cadillac 25 minutes early!! I just got out of the shower and my husband was still in his pajamas flipping pancakes! At least our kids were dressed and presentable, too bad they couldn’t sign for us while I hid in embarrassment!
Most recently I had forgotten to clean the oven out from the previous meal. Rushing to get supper together I turned it on to 375. I just about had everything prepared to go in when out of the corner of my eye I saw a flame in the oven. I didn’t panic until I opened the oven and saw how large it was!!
At the same time the boys came in the kitchen and their reaction was slightly different than mine. No, it is not neat or cool. No, we don’t want the fire to be as big as the house or get any larger! And no, we do not want firetrucks at our house!! Well now I am well versed on the instructions for the extinguisher. Thank you Jesus, I didn’t have to use it!
The boys seem to continually find my hair on the floor no matter what room they are in. They make sure to show me and each time express that mommy’s hair is everywhere! Perhaps it’s time to run the vacuum or at least maybe a bit more frequently. Either that or I am balding at 30!
Feel free to comment and share one of your own stories, I would love to read them!
