True #momlife is hardly ever easy or glamorous. Sometimes social media makes it look that way, but we know the truth. I came home after a long day to these two. First off, my house is a disaster. Reagan's nose is a faucet from a cold, and Corbin yesterday decided to rub his head on the carpet at school. Yes, true story, his teacher caught him, and he has a rug burn. He also stuck a rock in his nose on Friday, luckily it wasn't big and it fell out at home. This kid is never a trouble maker and never does these things. His teacher is great, and he is loving school so it's completely out of left field. We spent last night trying to make my classroom usable including Johnny hanging coat racks and whiteboards while Corbin cried constantly. Hardly the time for a good conversation about what had happened with his head. While I may never know what was in his head, we finally had a great talk tonight while reading in bed. Five year olds are tough y'all! He still had a smile on his face tonight though and begged for a picture with his half dressed sister. It's a good reminder that's it's just a season and while the days are long, the years are short. It's all worth it in the end, forehead burn and all! #mycrazyboy#bigbrother#corbinator#reaganmay#fiveyearsold#eightmonthsold#mckayresidence#thiscrazythingcalledlife#workingmom#teachermom#kindergarten
Happy 5th Birthday to my sweet, smart and very silly boy! He brings me so much joy and has made these last 5 years some of the best of my life (even though I still can't believe my baby is 5)!! #happybirthday#huddybuddy#fiveyearsold
Pay attention to the good things you are naturally drawn to as they often reflect your passions and your purpose in life (paraphrase and photo cred from @deeplovepicnics). This is for you, for your children too. A career counselor often takes an adult struggling with their their work life back to what they dreamt about 'being when they grew up' at five years old. What did you want to be? It may reflect the purest form of you. What does your five year old say now? Help nurture this as they grow and develop. Don't be afraid of words like 'super hero', 'king or queen', 'artist', 'fort builder', or 'tractor driver'. Look deeper, you may have an incredible leader in your hands, a philanthropist, a writer, architect, or the one who will take our food sustainability to the next level.
My first baby started kindergarten this morning! Not gonna lie, I got a little teary eyed 😭 She been more than ready for school for quite a while! I know my sweetie will have the best day today ❤️ #firstdayofkindergarten#fiveyearsold#momlife
Taylee Renee. You're a full hand now! A whole 5 years old. I can't believe how much you have changed my life in 5 years. You're the smartest little girl I've ever met. You're the reason that I've tried to do better in life. You're the reason for life itself. I love you so much more than you'll ever know babygirl. Haopy 5th birthday. 🎂🎈🎉❤
