Things are a little nutty around here, but in a surprising turn of events, I'm embracing it.
If you've read here for long, you know that I've struggled with parenting a strong willed kiddo and while I certainly wouldn't say I'm suddenly crushing it at parenting, I've decided to embrace her spunky, fiery personality (and time outs) and that's made a noticeable difference in our quality of life around here.
I'm embracing the frenzy that can come with a growing business (and a Fall launch coming up soon!) and just generally made the decision to be ok with life not being all smooth and orderly.
It mostly looks like this:
It also looks like putting the babe to bed at 8 and working on WC 'til 10, then making dinner (scrambled eggs) and FaceTimeing with Ryan (he's been out of town until today!) before I put new sheets on the bed since Liv puked all over ours the night before. If you didn't think I was glam before....
There's lots of multitasking, occasionally dropping the ball, and lots and lots of hugging it out. I've always got one for Liv, Ryan's always got one for me, and we keep his office well stocked with Jujubes as a thank you for keeping us emotional women together.
We're all looking forward to a couple of weeks in Maine this month to recharge, rest up, and enjoy some time together. We'll also be embracing much cooler temps (thank you, thank you), each other, and probably a glass or two of wine. And lobster rolls. And whoopie pies. You get where I'm going with this...
