On Friday night, after we'd put him to bed, Logan came running out of his room very anxious and excited. He was holding in his hand his second lost tooth!
And while we're on the topic of cute faces, on Thursday afternoon, the kids had taken the cushions off the couch and were jumping and flipping on them while I cut fabric. Apparently, Felicity was doing a flip, over rotated, and SLAMMED her poor little face into our side table, right across the bridge of her nose. Oh did she scream! And by the time I got to her, her nose was already purple and swollen. And I could WATCH it swell more. A few days later, she had two black eyes. Black rings under her eyes, and dark red rings over her eyelids. Not to mention a huge swollen nose with a big scab on it. Poor thing cried when she saw herself in the mirror. I tried to get a picture of it, but it doesn't do it justice.
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.
