All dressed up.

My mid-kid told me he dressed up for Mother’s Day… and he was being completely sincere. Cargo pants instead of basketball shorts… so in his mind he might as well be wearing a suit and tie. Love that scrappy kid!

Thankful today for all the Mom’s in my life. So many great lessons have been learned from both my own mom and my mother-in-law,  but also from my peers. I’m grateful for the moms I see in the trenches,  performing beautifully in these long hard days. I have learned about being firm,  giving grace,  having serious talks,  laughing hard,  being safe,  and having adventures all from watching my friends who mother so,  so well.  I’m grateful for community and for learning from the best. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!

  1. Haha, I have a feeling my own mid-kid is going to be pulling the same kind of thing when he’s a bit older. :) Just today I tried to convince him to wear regular shorts and a plain old T shirt for his last day of preschool. He settled on bball shorts and his favorite “activate” shirt. (I’m just happy it was clean!)

    Your family is beautiful!

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog today. You ARE blessed if you know Tara and her husband in real life. :) Take care!
