This year Ali Edwards is once again bringing us a way to document our memories for a week. To be honest I actually wasn’t going to join this year even though the kids are off as this week is their Spring Break.
I decided I would do a more relaxed Week in the Life instead of a pictures an hr of the day.
Today I’m sharing Monday’s little moments I captured. Although the kids weren’t busy I sure was and so it was a totally relaxed day.
The girls had a day of sharing stories and playing dolls and painting it’s always so beautiful to see their relationship. Such a blessing.
This was the after mass of breakfast when all the kids are home. I must say it’s my most disliked chore but I digress if I don’t get it done it’s just gonna grow!
Remember I said it was a busy day for me? Well here’s what dinner was! I can’t even remember what was lunch I know the kids made themselves sandwiches and I probably had some veggie sticks.
Hubby says I am a pizza addict. I don’t disagree I could eat pizza everyday and be happy. It’s my happy food! It’s just comforting and filling and I get a happy dance from eating it. My youngest loves it as much as I do hubby says I just brainwashed her cause of how much I eat it ha!
I was so tired that this is what my desk looked like at the end of the day. I have cleaned it up this AM but when I came to my table this is what I saw. I know crazy but it’s real life and sometimes you just have to get up and go to bed before you fall asleep while trying to clear your desk. Hey at least my planners were put away so it made it easier to clean up this AM.
That was my day yesterday. I’ll see what I capture today. SO far the guys are all sleeping and us girls are up again. We have some things to get done later on so lets see if I get to capture some of it.
Are you doing Week in the Life this year? How is your format if you are sharing? Are you taking pictures by the hour or things you want to remember? I’d love to know and please share so I can check it out!
As I tell my kids if you write it down that means your going to do it. (or so I hope so) This is a my own person note of a challenge I would like to do: To post a picture a day. Starting on Saturday. I will set a timer as a reminder to see if I have taken that picture yet. Would you like to join me? I’ll think of a hashtag and share it on Twitter on Saturday.
In the meanwhile, I thought I’d share a milestone that happened this week.
My youngest son turned 14! Yes I had the cake waiting for him the moment he got home.
We have a thing at our house that I always say. Your not officially older till you have had your cake.
Happy Birthday my Sweet boy. May our Lord continue to bless and guide you. I am so proud of the young man your growing up to be.
Time really is going way too fast. Make sure to snap those pictures even few and in between. You will be so thankful you have.
Can’t wait to document April with you. It is going to be a hard month for me but I think doing it will help me. More on that later next week.
In a blur I have to try and capture my little super hero zip by. I wonder where do you get all this energy. You didn’t sleep a complete night’s sleep. You have to be as tired as I am. Were you just getting up to make sure everything was in it’s place as everyone slept and your mom was just silly in thinking you needed her help to get back to sleep?
To think how you came into this world. How scared your father and I were. We saw how fragile you looked with all those wires and tube to help you breath. Tiny 27 weeks into the world you came. Slowly you showed us that with prayer, faith, and your will power there wasn’t anything you wouldn’t jump over. Slowly you got stronger and we were in awe. Everyone that heard of your story seemed just as amazed as us.
You are our Little Super Hero. Amazed I shall always be by all your energy, amazed by the questions you ask. The memories you seem to recall that I wouldn’t think you would but you do. Amazed that I have been blessed to be your mother. Amazed how fast time is flying. Almost as fast as you.
For now I will stand back but close enough in case you need me. Fly high my little super hero.
Usually I am up before any of the kids are. This is my view of the living room. Toys spread about. Little moments left in mid play as bedtime approached the night before and now here is what is left in front of me.
This is where I decide how my day will start. Will I smile and leave these pieces of imagination laying about and let them come back and let them continue to tell a tale or will I grumble and put everything where they should be neatly knowing that the moment the day begins everything will be out of its place again.
Will I remember that you are only little once. That this sweet imagination will fade with time and you will not want to share the stories of how your baby dolls are hungry. How you wouldn’t want to imitate how I nurture you.
Time speeds by so for today I will leave them as they are and capture the moment and when you return to play I will be thankful for the moments that seem to fade way to quickly but are never forgotten from my heart.
Here is a new site. A brand new page where stories will be preserved and shared. I hope that being able to share my moments that I wish to freeze in time I inspire you to perhaps do the same. Time slips by our fingers so fast. It seems we are all on the go and forget to just take to time to stop and enjoy. So much of our life is to try to get ahead but what about enjoying the present. That is what I will admit to do on this site.
Thank you for those who follow me on this journey.
