9 a.m.

With each and every new step down this road of motherhood, I am increasingly and utterly in awe of all you working parents who do this every.single.day, and at the literal crack of dawn. I am also acutely aware of how lucky I am to have the option of staying home with my kids.


It was a good day.

It's not so bad with just one, but the mornings he doesn't go to school I really cherish getting the day going more slowly. Thank goodness I don't have an office to go to or I'd never get my hair/clothes/makeup done in time to get us both out the door.
