Enjoying Life

Who doesn’t want to just chill like this?

After playing with the twins outside today, I went to go pick up the toys and miscellaneous things on the lawn. When I was walking back, I saw this girl just straight up chillin on the chair. Her face is pretty priceless, I think we can all agree that some of the best parts in life are when we are just relaxing enjoying the outdoors.

Holla to the Mama's

Since it was Mother’s Day this past weekend, I guess this is sorta dedicated to the mothers.
I’m not gunna lie, I have to give some SERIOUS props to stay at home moms. Being a nanny these past weeks has made me realize how hard it is to be a mom. There’s so much stuff you have to do just to keep your house in order. It’s ridiculous.
Everyday I:
Make sure the kids eat their breakfast
Wash dishes off
Unload the dishwasher
Put dishes in
Get them dressed
Brush all their teeth
Make their lunches for school
Send them off to school
Clean upstairs
Clean middle floor
Make up some activity for the ones at home to do (color, play games, any time passing activity besides watching tv)
Feed them snacks
More activity stuff
Feed them lunch
Go to their beds
Read them dr. Seuss until they fall asleep
Clean downstairs
Do laundry
Put away laundry
Have the other kids come home
Feed them their lunches
Make sure they don’t play too loud to wake the others up
Smaller ones wake up and they all play
Play downstairs
Play outside
Play the “lets hide and have Katelyn try and find us all over the house”
Try not to get crayon on the walls (always unsuccessful)
Give them baths
Get in pjs
Brush hair
Wait for mom to get home

In between all of this there are plenty of
Poopy bottoms to wipe
Clothes to pick up
Beds to make
Fights to break up
Bloody noses to aid to
Boo boo’s to kiss

It’s exhausting just thinking about it. And I leave around 5 every day…
there is still the whole night schedule!
It’s insane
So to all of you mothers out there, I feel you and I’m thankful for you
Here are pics from my adventures these past weeks.

pink shoes and polka dots

I'm not gunna lie. I try and get away with wearing as high of heels as I can. I'm 5'1 and i think that I have to make up for my height somehow. 
Most of the time, I can lie my way through a conversation and say "oh these don't hurt at all"  
but not with these shoes
I didn't even end up wearing them, but they did deserve a post

our little athlete

is it just me?
 or does everyone else think that kids are extremely adorable when they wear sports uniforms
they're just so tiny and the equipment is always so much bigger than it should be
well this weekend i got to go to Liam's (my little cousin) baseball game
 and i couldn't put my camera down
