Motherhood & Little Surprises


 "If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging."

The boys are always using this sink as a tub for their toys or cleaning station for their race cars. 

Little surprises are always awaiting!

Having a little guy in glasses means I'm on a never-ending wild goose chase after his itty bitty eyewear.

Here's where I found them one day while we were out to lunch at a pizza place.

This picture was taken earlier this summer.  He got himself ready for an adventure on the power wheels. 

Take note of the winter hat and mis-matched shoes. So chic!
