After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

The last cousin post I did was with my kids' only cousin on their Dad's side of the family. 2 weeks later, since my sister and her family were visiting from Arizona, my mom wanted us to attempt a cousin picture with all 6 of the cousins from my side of the family. I was so nervous because Kian had a fever but I snuck away at picture time and had my sister take him out to join the other kids. It worked like a charm. No tears!
