project 52: week thirty three

family is…unafraid…sometimes

family is...unafraid

When I was thinking about the picture for this week I realized it felt really ‘familiar’ and then /i realized that all the way back in week 3 I posted a very similar picture of our adventurous life!

Today I fly to Chicago by myself with all three kiddos. When I have told people this usually their eyes get real big, they scan over my kids again (I’m assuming reminding themselves that yes, there are 3 of them and they are under 5) and then they give some encouragement or advice on how I can get through it…usually they say “good luck with that!” and they walk away, really glad that they are not the ones that will a) be doing that or b) on that plane!

I’m feeling pretty confident though. I’ve flown many many times before with different ages of kids. I’ve ran through the whole procedure in my mind and know what the ‘hard parts’ will be: getting through security, checking the stroller at the gate and of course, keeping my almost 2 year old in a seat for 2 hours! To be completely honest I fully expect it to suck pretty bad, but you know what? It won’t be forever. It will be over and we will arrive into the arms of our friends and I’m pretty sure that I will vow to never do that again, until next time of course! So if you think of me today, pray for me :)

project 52: week thirty one

family is…fostering creativity

family is...fostering creativity
I am absolutely loving being the mama of my 4 year-old right now. He isn’t too old to climb into my lap and snuggle. We are well past changing diapers. We can have conversations about how he’s gonna take me on a date to Disney World. He even wakes up in the morning, dresses himself and plays alone with Lego’s for a while! There was a shift in his mind a few weeks ago when were discussing Lego’s where I told him about how the wonderful thing about Lego is that you can create whatever you want with them, there are no limits. I gave him permission to not feel like he has to follow the instructions and re-create their formula but to be free. Since then this freedom has spilled into all of the toys he’s playing with and I found him setting up domino’s this morning and using cars in new ways to knock them down. I just love those moments when I see my kids doing something great that I haven’t told them to do, my heart swells with pride.
