I remember babysitting for my niece and nephew were around the ages of my kids now. I would watch my sister-in-law and think to myself, “man she is so busy, running a household, raising kids, taking care of pets and running errands. She was always going somewhere and always busy with something. Driving the kids to practice, friends houses…schools.” I couldn’t wait to start my family. Mostly because My nephews and nieces were pretty amazing little people.
I caught myself thinking the same thoughts with my friend Stephanie when I was pregnant with Phoebe. Stephanie had her home, three beautiful children and her house was loud and full of life. She was always busy and running from one end of her home to the other and going into HYPER-DRIVE in order to make it out of her house to pick her kids up from school. I couldn’t wait. Abby was two years old at the time and so much fun. I couldn’t wait to meet Phoebe, put her little outfits on, kiss her little sleepy head…I couldn’t wait for them to be sisters and do sister things. Play on the playground together, run around the house together and play in the bathtub together. I couldn’t wait to take them to soccer games and ballet class…Well here I am.
Driving kids to school, preschool, therapies, doctors appointments, friends houses, meeting friends for lunch dates, having Friday night pizza with friends, wiping up pee from my friends carpet…thank you Phoebe for that last one.
Cramming everything into a weekend

And with holiday’s quickly approaching, there is no slowing down for us!
