Happy Friday! And today is certainly the happiest of Fridays because my man candy should be headed home soon!! It’s been a long three weeks and I am oh so excited to wrap my arms around my love bug! And having an extra hand when it comes to these gremlins won’t be bad either 😉
I’ve got a busy day of catch up, work, and cleaning but wanted to leave you with a few pictures from our trip yesterday. The kids and I took a drive down to Florida with my MIL to visit her parents for the day. We kicked it out by their pool, grilled out, and literally spent the entire day toasting in the sun.
While we were busy swimming like fish, I took a second to reflect and realized that my baby wasn’t my baby anymore. He didn’t want me to help him swim, or jump into my arms from the edge. He wanted to run with the big kids and explore the pool for himself. I found myself asking for kisses and hugs and for now, he would still give them to me. But I realized that soon enough, there’s going to be a day when he won’t be a baby anymore and it’s going to break my heart.
Starting next week, you might see a little less of me around here. With it being summertime, I want to take full advantage of every minute I get to spend with my little ones. You can still find me here 3-4 times a week but I don’t even want to promise that. This blog has been such a blessing the past two years and I don’t want to give it up completely. However with my new job, I’ve already cut into mommy time and I just don’t want to put pressure on myself to be here when I’ve got so much else going on in “real life”.
So don’t worry, you’ll still see me around these parts. Just maybe not as frequently. And that doesn’t mean I’m giving it up or that I love you all any less, it just means that this mama bear has realized how precious time truly is and I don’t want to have any regrets when I look back down the road.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned! See you all next week 🙂
