Our Little Family.

21 Nov

It’s not often that the three of us go out together. If we are all home then usually one person stays with Emma and the other will run errands or one of us will take Emma out while the other stays home. Since a majority of the time Brian and I are both working there isn’t much time that we have together that overlaps and when we do we like to spend it together being lazy and enjoying each other’s company.

My schedule this year has picked up and we’ve been working a majority of four days a week instead of three – which I am not complaining about all! I love providing child care and watching the girls play together. Brian’s schedule is a normal Monday – Friday schedule but he has most Tuesdays off.

Almost every Tuesday I dedicate to running errands, getting groceries, and getting ready for the next week. I like to do all those things during the week because it’s so crowded on the weekends so it’s much more relaxing to go while everyone else is busy. Saturday’s and Sunday’s are when I get to work in the studio or we have family events. It’s a rare occasion around here when we don’t have at least one thing to do on the weekend.

Thanks to thanksgiving break this week and last Tuesday doing 99% of my errands for two weeks – this Tuesday was going to be an easy day. I only had one errand to run and we were all going out as a family together ๐Ÿ™‚ Since this doesn’t happen often I like to soak it up and enjoy it!

I spent the morning getting ready, doing my hair and make up (which hardly happens), getting Emma ready, and cleaning up the house so we’d come home to no chores. Once we were all in the car I snapped a picture of Emma:

I think she was pretty excited about going out with both of us. We went to Harris Teeter to pick up rolls for Thanksgiving and a few other things. Watching Brian push her in the cart and chat with her was adorable! I don’t know what it is about men and their children but it makes my heart melt!

After wiping one Harris Teeter out of rolls we realized we needed to make another stop at a different Harris Teeter. Emma found it amusing that we were going to another grocery store!

It wasn’t much but I loved it.

Hello There!

What a crazy week it has been over here and it’s only Tuesday night! I spent most of Monday playing with three gorgeous girls. Child care is like a constant eye opener for me. I love watching Emma play on her own but watching her play with other kids is a whole different ball game! It’s amazing how smart, friendly, and funny little ones are. Each day I get to watch them grow up is just another reminder to me that life goes by so fast and to enjoy every little second that I can.

Emma has been especially amazing these past few days and it’s hard to resist the urge to spoil her rotten! Sure she likes to pick on me and get my nerves but so does everyone else ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha. It’s like she’s finally understanding me and how I function now. We are finally getting into a comfortable routine for both of us and enjoying the transitions that the days bring.

Today my Mother-In-Law took Emma to visit family and she couldn’t have been any more excited! Car trips have become more of an adventure that’s fun and exciting rather than boring and painful ๐Ÿ˜› She loves visiting people too and sharing all her wonderful news of all her new things and what she has figured out the past few days.

We got her all dressed up in her new dress which she called her princess dress. She told me that I was beautiful (partially because I had just told her she was) and said Thank You Very Much Mommy – You Are Da Best once I got her all packed up and ready.

It’s funny because as a busy parent working from home on two different jobs, blogging, and trying to find a balance between it all – I always say if only I had more time. Today I had the entire day to get things done and I did, but the thing I did the most was miss my little girl. I wondered how she was and what she was doing. If she remembered to say please and thank you. If she ate her lunch well and picked up her toys.

Before I had this little princess in my life – I used to use music to calm me down and make me realize what was important in life. Sometimes it was the beat of the music, sometimes the lyrics fit my mood perfectly, but most of the time it was that reminder that everyone else was going through the same things I was so there wasn’t any point in worrying so much.

These days it’s my little girl reminding me that worrying gets you no where. That the little things in life are the best. That all it takes to fix a little boo boo is a hug and kisses, then it’s time to get up and keep playing because no matter what happens – life’s too short to worry about things that bring us down.
