“Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a Mother.”
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Momma’s! I would define motherhood as the hardest job on earth, with the worst pay and the most reward. It’s a journey to a new shade of crazy that we come to embrace + enjoy, as we cope with the after effects of the insanity. It’s a great.. What was I saying? 😉 Oh yeah, insanity..
We’re all just trying to make motherhood count, as we walk that fine line between our sanity + trying to figure out what that smell is. When childless people talk about having kids, I want to yell, “Don’t do it!” and, “It’ll be the best thing ever!” all at the same time.
These are just a few words I collected to describe our existence:
Laundry. So much laundry.
Legos. Lots of them.
Blessed. Mostly blessed.
With all the hats we wear, I think there should be a once monthly Mother’s Day. Just saying.. 🙂
One thing motherhood has taught me is that God does not always deal us easy cards. The only thing our firstborn and secondborn have in common is us as parents.
Our 3 year old, Breckin, is pure sugar. This sweet, brown-eyed boy prettymuch had a smile on his face at birth, he’s smart, he’s hilarious, he’s very compliant and he loves on us every chance he gets.
This 6-going-on-14 little girl of ours has been my greatest challenge. She is the most tomboy, social, outgoing, funny, sophisticated but crazy person I know. She’s also embarrassed to be seen with me in front of her friends (ALREADY!) and, let’s just say, it took a cinnamon roll and a baby to play with to convince her to wear this skirt for pictures. You could say she’s a little strong-willed (which I hear is an incredible attribute once she’s an adult). 😉 Oh and she’s happiest when you don’t touch her, look at her or talk to her. We do all of those things anyway. #toobadgetoverit
This mom + me shoot is one I’ve had rolling around in the back of my head for a while and, with the help of AMP Images, it finally happened last week. I’m so glad it came to fruition before this “little” girl is entirely too pre-teen to endure it. 🙂
Life with kids is a forever adjustment, but there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them.
(Not pictured is one amazing husband who was hard at work while we played at the park. We could not function without him and he will be well celebrated on Father’s Day!)
My long hair is all thanks to my Halo + you can find Addison’s skirt here. My skirt is sold out from Target, but this one is similar.
Huge shoutout to Amy of AMP Images for these sweet shots + forever memories. It’s not everyday your photoshoot is also a fun playdate at the park. We had an all-around blast and I highly recommend connecting with Amy if you want some great images!
I hope you all have a fun day celebrating all that us moms do. If you have ever loved a child, this day is all about you.
