Some days raising kids...

Some days raising kids is about:
how you can help them find rewarding intellectual pursuits,
encouraging them to stretch & use their imagination,
providing a solid moral compass,
creating healthy snacks and dinner to give them energy for positive physical play.

Other days its just about getting everyone through the day alive.

Let's be honest, it's usually a mix of both.

Yesterday was a day of the second kind. It was ridiculous and I stayed up reading "The fault in our stars" to try and make up for the day - and it worked. I am so happy for new days and fresh starts. We haven't gotten much done so far but there has been less yelling from everyone, so that is a good thing, right?

Oh, and I love this picture. So much.

And to think before you become a parent you think you'll be able to control those kinds of things. With just a little adventuresome baby, it's often just the keeping her alive part. Cute picture! I miss those kiddos!

I feel that way most days. And by the way, Linc is even more adorable in this pic than usual. He is just growing so fast!
