little moments

In the crazy, semi-controlled chaos that is our daily existence, there are days when I don't feel like I can get on top of anything. The sink is never empty, the laundry is never done, the boys are never bathed, and I don't brush my hair. Thankfully, those days are growing more seldom, but they do exist. 

But the best days aren't when I am super productive, finish the laundry, put the perfect meal on the table, or manage to look presentable and venture out the door. The best days are when I can forget all of those things and focus on the most important thing of all - my relationships. Especially with my boys. Thankfully, there is a lot of overlap in nap time most days, but I usually get a least a few minutes alone with each kid each day. Here are a few snippets of those moments. 

I am very smart and good at stacking.

Must... touch... everything.

Mama, take my picture. Mama, can I see it? Mama, can I take YOUR picture? Mama...

And finally, let me leave you with this:

Because that just about sums it up.


  1. I have yet to really find the secret to a productive day, but I will agree that it's so much easier to focus on relationships with joy when you feel like you've got it all together :)

  2. Oh my goodness the face in the last one is precious!
