|i LOVE this picture. it is my life.|
about 100 times.
|i suppose i do look a little relaxed? really, i'm just SEIZING.|
embracing the chaos.
|lily has reverted to giving open-mouth kisses like baby eve. |
and, don't you love sweet anna trying to braid lily's hair? girls!
(please ignore the boxes in the background?! ugh.)
I thought for a long time how i would describe my life lately.
Maybe content more than relaxed... but even content seems a bit too stagnant.
this is a growing time for me... not a slower time.
I am SEIZING.
does that sound good?
i'm seizing the moments.
i laugh at myself.
"Jen, you look very seizing lately."
"why, thank you."
and, it's busy, and tiring, but wonderful.
i love being a mother to many.
|our neighbor has dogs... my kids LOVE to take them for a walk, often.|
tonight i spent many moments with her encouraging her to bravely eat the veggies i had mixed into her pasta.
|my oldest girl, with my youngest girl- i love them.|
my life is beautiful.
and today, i'm SEIZING.
ps. i was cuddling in bed with my 3 youngest (and a bag of half-eaten salami they had confiscated from the fridge) at 6:02 AM this morning. leah asked, "Mom, how much do you love us?"
i replied, "Up to the sky and back."
she laughed, "Mom... you mean up to Poodle don't you?"
(i think she meant pluto?)
How i love that child... up to Poodle and back!!
