The Kids Behind the Blog

Everyone loves getting to know the person(s) behind the blog, but these posts spotlight our little ones, a handful of our #MOMbloggers have put together “The Kids Behind The Blog”.

After Kids, ‘Well Rested’ is a Myth.

‘Well Rested’ is a Myth

At the beginning, individuals comprehend that bringing new life brings weariness. Individuals inquire as to whether the infant is sleeping through the night, as though that is the mysterious key to them feeling like completely human again. In any case, each parent knows, it is most certainly not. I’m entirely certain that moms never feel like fully functional human beings again. Perhaps they simply change the meaning of what “Cognizant” means, which no longer infers anything firmly identified with “rested”. Here’s the reason:

Child-Free isn’t a slap in the Face…

Moms need female friends; and Child-Free can be the best kind...

Why Moms shouldn’t shame Child Free Women, but instead Embrace them as Friends

I have a few friends that want nothing to do with motherhood. And that is awesome. Everything in life is a choice, and reproducing is one of those choices. Being a mother is one of my favorite things in my experience. I LOVE everything (well, mostly, haha) about being a mom. I love being pregnant, the birthing process, and most especially shaping these blessings into a person that will improve the world.

Genesis 2:24

#A2Z Challenge - Genesis 2:24

Genesis 2:24 records the moment that God, immediately after creating woman from the rib of man, establishes marriage – the union of a male and a female – as the foundation of the family, the child rearing unit. The meaning of this is as clear as mountain air: God intends for children to be reared by a man and a woman who are committed to one another for life. Period.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

I won’t lie, Ry and I had a rough start to our marriage. We were young (only 18 and 19 when we married) and had a lot of growing up to do. I really wish that we had made it a point to study the bible together as newlyweds; but hindsight is 20-20 and the future is cloudy.

DIY Pizza Night

Sigh; the bane of every SAHM’s day would be the shows their kids get attached to. Most of Jam’s don’t bother me, but Cailou is a love/hate thing. I feel that he has taught a lot of good things (beig kind to others, sharing, kindess to animals, being the big brother, etc) but sometimes the twinge of Cailou’s voice is just not bearable…

Enough

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough ‘Hellos’ to get you through the final ‘Good-bye.’

You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

The other night dear, as I lay sleepin’
I dreamed, I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cry

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

You told me once dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between us
But now you’ve left me and you love another
And you have shattered all my dreams

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

I’ll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another
But you’ll regret it all some day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
Please don’t take my sunshine away
