our lately…

To say that we have been busy lately would be an understatement and I know that it’s only going to get worse.  We haven’t necessarily been running around like crazy going here or going there but the list of to do’s and responsibilities that have added up lately and the amount of time that we have to complete them in just doesn’t match up…

My coping method you ask??  Ignoring the list and relishing in a little bit of this from time to time…

Afternoon snuggles and stories with Daddy…

A little boy that can ask for certain books by name- Go Dog Go is one of the favorites right now :)

Random duplo pieces everywhere you look.  Yes, they hurt like heck if you step on them but the joy that comes from playing with them makes up for it.  Besides, he calls them his “poopy cars” (ie people cars) and if that doesn’t at least make you smile I don’t know what will…

The opportunity to spend some time as a family, just the three of us and take random self portraits that aren’t great are cherished all the same.  I told him to squish in for this next photo and he poked his head in between ours and just kept saying “squish, squish!” over and over again…

Animals that are still wearing blue sweaters but that are healing, puppies that only wish they were small enough to join us on the bed and little boys (and Daddies) that love them both…

It’s been a long last few weeks with Daddies away at conferences, sick kitties to take care of and now sick little boys to mend as well; but with a few naps, a few early bedtimes, and a whole bunch of to-do’s ignored we are managing… Heck we’re thriving and making memories in the meantime :)

Jay is 20 months old today and time is flying by…  Honestly what I am truly grateful for lately is that we have taken the time to slow down, to enjoy each other’s company and to live more in the moment.  Yes, the floors are dirty and there is fur pretty much everywhere you look around the house (editor’s note: The fur’s omnipresence is a matter of opinion), the laundry isn’t near being done and regardless of what room you are in you can find something that hasn’t been put away- dishes, a toy, a car, a suitcase from the trip.  No, this isn’t the type of house that I was raised in but it’s the house that I have come to love because while I used to wait around for everything to be perfect I realized that I have everything I need and then some, and what could be more perfect than that?

Happy Tuesday to all of you, may it be so perfectly unperfect…

One thought on “our lately…

  1. What a wonderful post. I love the mood and peace of mind that you are in. We all have so much to be grateful for and sometimes we need to stop long enough to realize that! Thanks for reminding me.
