In our family, Sundays are for Papa’s Motorhome. Mike’s grandpa (aka Papa) purchased his Motorhome in 1997, and since then it has been filled with many family gatherings and memories. It’s kind of crazy to see the multiple generations of grandchildren (and now great grandchildren) that have spent their childhood there. Every Sunday Mike’s grandparents take it to the Bay and we will either spend the day there, or make an effort to at least stop by when we’re out and about. Mike loved it as a kid, our son looks forward to it every weekend, and I’m sure our daughter will grow to enjoy it.
It’s funny to me being a second time mom. My daughter turns 6 months old tomorrow (halfway to 1 years old 😱) and I laugh because when my son was that age I already had like 20 hand sewn soft soled baby shoes I made for him 🤣. It’s definitely more difficult to do DIY projects with 2 little ones now, but I’m determined to get them in at least monthly.
Happy 6 months, Harlow Reese ✨
You have been such an easygoing, joyful baby. Every time you smile you make my day shine brighter. 😃 I love you, babydoll!
Here’s a DIY No Sew, No Dent Baby Bow Headband. Best part is, it only takes about 10 minutes to make!
They say half the battle is getting to the gym, however, as a working mom with two little ones, half the battle is getting to the car to get to the gym 😂. Before kids I was pretty regimented with my fitness routine. Worked out 4-5 days a week, and meal prepped healthy meals on Mondays for the whole week. After the birth of my second child, soon my workouts consisted of carrying a 14 lb. baby, chasing my toddler around, and being lucky to find the time to eat 3 meals a day. When life got to this point I knew I had to make changes because my wellness has always been an important factor in keeping my mind, body, and soul balanced. Also, I just found staying active elevated my energy and mood, which successively helps me be a better mother to my children. Scratch that, coffee does that 🤣 haha!
I became internal this week. I was actually feeling uninspired and unmotivated to write, but after a few days I decided to be proactive instead and take action for my family. And in liu of the senseless, heartbreaking, tragic Las Vegas massacre, I decided to dedicate this post to the first responders and good samaritans that helped save some lives during that terrible event. As sad as it is to have this mindset, this is the reality and current world that I am tasked to raise my children in. But, I would rather be prepared for something that never happens, than to be unprepared if it ever does.
