May is my favorite month, and least favorite in some ways too. But we have a lot going on in May, including my birthday :) So in honor of that I'm going to try and post a little something more about myself each day.
But first, can I just tell you how much I LOVE the target dollar bins? They must know how much I love yellow . . . and stripes . . . and grey with yellow. Yes, I bought the only two I could find.
Now, back to sharing more about myself. That's hard for me. I'm a pretty private person, I think a lot of it is due to insecurity. I wait until I know someone pretty well before I open up-and that doesn't help with the making lots of friends bit. But I want to be more open and I really admire people who are so open not just online but in real life too. So . . . I've been thinking a lot about my kids lately. I really love my kids. Like, really love them. Last night when I was putting the little sweetie to bed she was looking up at me and I was looking down at her in my lap and she just smiled her big happy smile and put her forehead against mine and started laughing and laughing. It was such pure happiness and sweetness I was soon laughing right along with her. She is so full of love and life. I can't get enough of her. I haven't always felt such a connection to my kids. In fact, when I was first pregnant with the buddy I wasn't really sure I wanted kids. It seemed like I was going to be giving up a lot more than I was getting. But I'm so glad I took that leap of faith and carried on. Those first months were rough, really rough after he was born. But I look back now and I realize I was so wrong. I did give up things, but I gained so much more. Being a mom and having a family has brought more real joy and fulfillment than any hobby or other job ever could. I just wish more people knew how great being a mom is!
Have a great day! And don't forget we've got another week for the giveaway--see below!
