All grown up.

Well it's official I am the mom, I am the one in charge. I know I should know this already but it takes a while for it to sink in. I always think of my self as young and can come and go as I please, but now that I have a 6 yr old and a 3 yr old my life is no longer my own! Yup it just hit me... maybe somewhere in between driving my preschooler to school in the morning mon. wed. and fri only to come home for half an hour to turn around and drive kindergartner to school to come home and hurry and put the little one down for a nap just as soon as I do that it's back to school to get the oldest.... then home and 2 days a week dance class. I know I'm tired just typing it.

When Brian and I started to talk about having kids I remember my mother in law would say to me just be prepared to put your own life on a shelf because it will no longer be about you.... man was she right. I love my little family and I am happy I have a girl house, growing up with all brothers has some draw backs, I'm sure you can imagine! It's just lately I really feel like the mom! I have know idea how my own mom did five kids..... THANKS mom! It's all worth it right?

WELL till next time

I'm doing that now with the GRAND~girls ages 3 and 5! There is a real reason that you do it when you are young. They wear me out! You are a great mom and you have a great mom!

It is SO worth it but it does take alot of time and patience and love. I think you have all those things - I can tell you are a GREAT mom!
I am sure with all those cute boys you grew up with your mom was VERY happy to have you...her girl!!

I'm nothing if not obedient, so I'm here because your mom directed me here--and I love her blog. :)

You're right--life shifts from YOU to THEM when you become a mom. (Just remember to do something here and there for YOU so you can be a better mom--take a bath, have a girls' night out, have a hobby.) Cute kids!

Sorry Emma, I was here last week, then I moved my sis and BIL into their new home in my hometown. Anyway... yes they do grow up fast. You'll be sending them to college before you know it.
Beautiful kids Emma, just like you.
Love You
Love Me

Hi~ came over for a little visit from your mom's blog. What an adorable family you have. Your little girls are as cute as can be. I'm a nana now but started out young. I still have two teens at home but love being able to get some baby sugar from the little folk!
