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.

A Love Donation

Today was a B.I.G day in our house!
The day started out pretty normal, with Logan sporting his favorite guitar shirt, and his famous long red hair.

But then, we all went to the salon! 
Logan has been thinking of cutting his hair, and donating it to Locks of Love for a while now.  Last week, he was VERY ready.  So the appointment was made.

His hair was sectioned off into little pony tails.....

....and then the cutting began.

Lots of hair to donate.

His very anxious Daddy watched on.

And then it was short!
And Logan ran to Zac.....and cried.
Poor guy.  I think it was just a big shock.  Also, the cut took longer than he expected.  I think he thought that he'd walk in, get all the little pony tails cut off, and then be on his way.  He didn't love the styling part of the cut.  We took some time to love on him and then he stood up, shook his head, and happiness spread over his face.  He LOVED the feeling of shaking that short hair.  And from that moment on, he was thrilled with his cut.  As we drove off, he saw a child without hair, and told us excitedly that maybe his hair would go to someone like that.  He spent the rest of his day excited about his decision. 
 And I'm so glad this was HIS decision.

He's excited to send off his donation.

And here's my handsome SHORT haired boy!
