Well, I went on vacation this past week! I stayed active and even had plans to stick to my workout program while I was there but it just didn't workout!
We rode bikes, walked and carried a 40 lb tired toddler a lot! .
I also ate pizza and chocolate, drank a few beers and didn't think too much. 😜
It was such a fun trip and I loved spending good quality time with my family.
Now I have to start over on round 2 of my program and this morning I woke up late and had to rush off to work. I didn't get my shake in or my workout. Sometimes life can be crazy but I'm not perfect!!!! No one is, it is about rolling with the punches and figuring out how to stick to your goals no matter what!
He walks around with Armandos' metal and says thats his. I told him he can win one if he eats right and gets "super strong." He says,"I want big muscles and be strong like Harmando" (There is an "h" for him. 😂😂😂) #ilovemychunks#kidsarethebest#powerlifting
My 12 year old was slightly freaking out at the sight of these 😁 a #westafrican dish, so we were told. I told Thalia, she can eat the snails and also have a #snailfacial , "why would anyone subject themselves to this"? She asked #kidsarethebest
When I was pregnant with Knox, I was excited about every part of being a mom of a newborn again (even after 3), except one part: teething. I was not wrong to dread this part. The dirty diapers, the interrupted sleep, the crying, the neediness, and the pain. All of it was a welcome tradeoff for this sweet new life. I would rather potty train than live through another teething child. It NEVER ends.#teething#motherhood#babies#kidsaretheworst#kidsarethebest#stillthankful
God's been calling me to this place. Today I finally obeyed. It was my first day serving the 3-4 year olds in @cityhopekids. I told God that I couldn't serve 3-4 year olds because I'm a SAHM to two toddlers EVERY day of my life (and I didn't want to deal with toddlers at church on Sunday...to be REAL honest). And God answered: "I know. So who better than you to serve in this way and in this season of your life." This morning I woke up reluctantly obedient. And through these kids, God filled me with greater purpose and love to overflowing. God is so so good. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to help shepherd the generation of my children and their peers as they learn about Jesus and choose to follow Him with all their heart, soul, and mind. And I'm thankful for all the opportunities for laughter and play. Like today, they were all about "What are those things around your mouth Mrs. Whitney?", touching and mashing on my face. So I taught them all about freckles = flat (top of my lip) and moles = bumpy (under my bottom lip) along with how much Jesus loves them. Oh, and we talked about how much we love cookies too. #listenandobey#calling#firstday#cityhopemob#cityhopekids#kidsarethebest#littlepeoplerock
