Our tournament this weekend was shortened due to inclement weather, but the boys brought home the gold. Some of the best baseball I’ve seen them play yet! Love this baseball team of ours.
My cup runneth over today on #nationalsiblingday . So thankful for these sweet kids of mine. Bubba is everything I ever wanted in a big brother. Vivian is everything he’s ever wanted in a little sister, except he could do without some of the toddler tantrums. I have been so, so blessed with such a loving little family. I truly could not ask for more.
These two are so happy to be back together, even if they did bicker within an hour of him being home....Vivian has been counting down the seconds until Bubba returned from spring break in Florida. So happy he had the opportunity to go, but even more happy our family is complete again.
Bubba is finally home after a week in #florida for Spring Break! Having my family back together makes my cup runneth over. Of course, in true Bubba style, the first thing he wants to do when he gets home is go fishing. 💙🐟
Bubba has been down in Florida with his grandparents for Spring Break. He has been going to the beach, fishing, picking out new baseball gear, etc... Doing all of the things that make him happy. While I miss him so much my heart is breaking, I also have been trying to drink up this one-on-one time with my sweet peach. Bless her, she has felt miserable this week thanks to one of her molars coming in. (Wouldn’t even take a photo without blocking her beautiful face with her baby doll...) I had really hoped to have a super special week with her as the only child, which she only gets to be a couple weeks a year. Instead, we’ve had a week of fussing, crying, screaming and clinging along with not too much sleep. Initially, when I reflected on this week, I was bitter about it. “Of course the one week she has to herself with us is going to be the week she is as ill as a hornets nest.” I caught myself in this negative mindset and realized I needed to look at this week as a blessing. It has been a blessing because I was able to focus on just her needs and how to make her the most comfortable. My only parenting responsibility this past week was making sure she felt extra loved and cared for and had unlimited cuddles with her mama. When I switched my mindset it made me realize that I was able to care for her as if she was my only child...which is the kind of attention she does not get very often being the second child. Silver linings are everywhere if you look for them. I have been trying to be more aware when my negativity kicks in and also be more proactive in switching to a more positive perspective. My heart is happy knowing my daughter has felt the extra love and that my son has had a week of adventure.
