Day 20 The Post That Wasn’t

By |November 20th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Today was possibly the hardest I've ever had. Well.. that didn't involve any actual catastrophic events. I feel absolutely defeated tonight. I've been trying to figure out my post for today and since both of our computers are broken and my phone kind of sucks for this, it will be short. I'm thankful for hard

Day 19: Anthem for the Underdogs

By |November 19th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

So. I'm pretty emotional today. People keep posting all these reasons why they love that new Katy Perry song, 'Roar.' It's a catchy song and it strikes a chord in anybody who loves the underdog. It's pop fluff but now it seems to have become an anthem for a lot of people. And normally I'd

Day 18: VVM: The Musical

By |November 18th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

It's getting really hard to remember those fifteen short months I had with Dex before Veda was born. It seems like they've always been together, for better and for worse. As soon as she could roll over Veda was right there playing alongside Dex and they never looked back. Dex still had quite a bit

Day 17: Arms like an octopus.

By |November 17th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

This week and weekend we've been trying to get organized and deep clean the house, on top of about a thousand other projects that need to get done. I'm sure you can imagine how well that's been going in the midst of our own personal plague. Most days I feel like I'm constantly being touched.

Day 16: Unicorns and Rainbows.

By |November 16th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

It's my husband's birthday. He always seems to have kind of a crappy day on his birthday. It usually involves some killer project being due, working a nightmare event, being on plague induced house arrest, end of the world blizzard... you know awesome things. This year none of us feel well (so I may have

Day 15: Mr. Mom.

By |November 15th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

My husband has been taking care of me all week because I've been battling some horrible plague. I'm sure I've mentioned it several times before. It's been really hard to get up and be with the kids all day so when Kai gets home from class or work he takes over. Every night he's been

Day 14: Balance

By |November 14th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I don't really care for labels. I hate parenting terms and even worse, parenting books. I'd like to think of what we do more as actually knowing our children well enough to figure out what they need from us. And honestly, I don't always know what they need or how to help them. Parenting is

Day 13: Eeyore.

By |November 13th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I know it sounds weird but today I'm really thankful for those Eeyore kind of people. The ones who always seem to be walking around with their own personal rain cloud. The ones who always post something really negative or never have a 'attitude of gratitude'. The ones who always blame those around them or

Day 12: Eyes, Ears, Mouth, and Nose

By |November 12th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

  Today was Gus's 4 month well child check (a month late) and despite being on the small side (surprisingly enough, although they didn't use the chart for exclusively breastfed babies) he is very healthy and is a little ahead of all of the developmental milestones they check. And I'm thankful. For the opportunity to

Day 11: Those Who Serve

By |November 11th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

 Although there are many things that have happened already today that are worthy of writing out a thankful post, it just seems impossible to choose anything other than being thankful for our soldiers. It may be completely 'on the nose' but it is Veteran's Day and I'm grateful for those who serve. They are one
