I know that I have made this a craft blog but I kind of just want to talk about being a mother, just for a second. I don't know about you, but honestly I mom made it seem easy. I've always been one who can get a lot of tasks accomplished and I've faced a lot of struggles in my day but sometimes I get so stressed out. But here it is 8:40am and I am writing on here. My son is swinging away, hopefully off to dreamland for at least a half hour. But since I've been up I've managed to apply fake tanner to my legs (I have my friend's bridal shower tomorrow and these legs cannot be glowing white), I'm working on my second cup of coffee, baked pork chops, did some Facebooking, hung out on Pinterest, found a new blog to follow (via Pinterest!) played with my son which ultimately allowed me to started a new jumping workout routine which left me breathless but my 7 month old unleashed infectious belly laughs (so bonus!) and did some arm toning (again, thanks to Pinterest). All before 9am…when I look at it that way, I guess I am like my momma….she probably had times when she felt stressed out too…but she got it done…and I do it all too...it pays off to see this smile. This is Grayson on his very first 4th of July! It's all worth it!
