Recently when people ask “do you have kids?” It is literally my favorite thing to say “Yes! I have 2 daughters.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Two daughters, two little girls! Sometimes I really can’t believe that I am a mom to not only only child but two! 🤩
Andrew and I will look at each other often and say “can you believe we have 2 kids!?” It all feels like it happened so fast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even though we have been married 6.5 years, it’s hard to believe what our lives looked like before the girls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eloise and Anna, you challenge us, you make us stronger, you cause our hearts to expand with love and you are dreams come true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through each season of life Mommy and daddy choose to love you!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Living it up in @ikeausa - We’ve decided to separate our two older kids so they no longer share a room. It’s breaking my heart slightly but they just keep each other up and our son can go to bed later now, but his sister won’t have any of it. He needs time to relax and read (as if) in his own space, plus he’s been scared of his current bedroom (next to the front door) since we moved (his sister isn’t - she’s hard as nails 💪) so I’m hoping a change of scenery will help him out. It might be that in a few years they share again, but for now, the girls will share. Our four year old is properly miffed so I keep having to entice her with the promise of unicorns, pink things and dolls.... not that we adhere to gender stereotypes at all in this house 🤣 Wish us luck!
Sent this girl on the bus alone for the first time today and gosh, it was hard to watch them drive away. I kind of hope she wants me to keep dropping her off at school after today because I really enjoy our early morning talks and the habit we’ve gotten into of praying together. We pray for her to have a great day, and to be a good friend and example to everyone, and for her to have courage throughout the day. I really love that special time with her. We really only have 12 “guaranteed” years with her (and no time is guaranteed unfortunately) so I remind myself on a regular basis that these years are fleeting and that these are the times Tenley will remember as part of her childhood. We can’t waste a minute. The time we spend with our kids and the lessons we teach them each day come back to us for better or worse. I want to create moments of happiness for my children that will bring them fond memories in the future. Those memories begin by what I do little by little each day. My children may remember some of my failures, but they’ll also hopefully remember how hard I tried for them.
