So this is what 70 degrees feels like, its been so long, I almost forgot!
Sunshine you’ve been missed!
So maybe our staycation didn’t go how we planned it. I mean how can you plan getting scammed on airb&b ? which apparently happens way too much. When I posted it on instastories so many others had the exact same stories. And the hotel we were trying to stay in said it happens ALL the time! Thank heavens we only live an hr away from where we were trying to stay. Some people had horror stories of flying into their hotel for spring break only to find it wasn’t available and all the hotels were sold out.
In our case all the hotels were sold out as well, but the hotel let us swim and gave us a hotel credit.
It turned out to be still fun after all. Just be carefull when use that app y’all.
When it rains it pours or should I say when hell freezes over? Both are pretty great titles we could have gone with for why we just want to stay in and snuggle.
First off shout out to the nicest family who came over and shoveled my driveway and sidewalks. My husband has been out of town and I was going to go out and shovel before I took the trash to the curb. And to my surprise it was already done for me. Thank you, thank you!
Life! – My cleaning lady called in and said she wasn’t feeling well and could not come over. So I decided I needed to clean. I want my husband to come home to a clean home. So I start cleaning and the babies are just “playing”. As Im cleaning the bathroom I notice the master bathroom isn’t flushing. I go to my kids bathroom and theirs isn’t working either? What in the world is going on?
I call a plumber. He comes over takes apart my toilets. Mine the pipes froze. My bathroom is above our gym and I did close the vents in their because it is like a sauna when I am on the treadmill. So I think thats what caused it? UGH
And my kiddos. While I was cleaning they had put markers down the toilet and flushed them all. He literally had to dismount the toilet to get them out.
Long story short it would have been a heck of a lot cheaper to have hired a different cleaning lady than for this whole toilet fiasco. -oh wells?
Some days don’t you just wish you could just climb into bed and do a redo lol
Today I did things I no longer do as a mother, but something I used to always do as a young mother. I packed up the kids during a snow storm and headed to the mall. But before I did that, I loaded up my stroller (lately I usually only bust that out on vacations or runs). As I unloaded my children from the van into their stroller and walked in the mall. I had flashbacks of the old me. The younger, eager mother I once was. I had just had Briton when I got this little seat attachment. I was excited, I had three kids, all under the age of three. And I knew I was going to get pregnant again soon, or at least I had hoped I would.
Fast-forward 4 years, my oldest is now 7! I have had my 4th child who is approaching his second birthday this spring. I am not as eager for the future because the future means babies growing up instead of meeting new ones.
I sat in my car after our mall experience, listened to their lullabies and looked at my rearview mirror at all of their eyelashes fluttering off to sleep. I cried! And I don’t cry. At least anymore.
Lately, I have put guards up, I’ve felt defensive, confused, and maybe like I need to move on from Birdalamode.com and put this chapter to bed. But tonight I felt close to the young mother I used to be just a few years prior and I remembered what Birdalamode.com stood for, stands for and why I love it with all my heart.
You see Birdalamode.com documented the best years of my life. I met my children on here. I discovered who I was , who my friends are , and the importance of family. I have made income, friends, and mistakes. But its life. To me Birdalamode.com is a living thing. There is a person, a family, a story, history behind this platform. And I want it part of my life forever in one way or another.
Recently I have said goodbye to a HUGE chapter in my life, breastfeeding and my hormones have made me super sensitive, in a positive way. I went through an excited moment and now I just feel overly grateful for what I have and created as I watch them sleep. Whether I bear more children or if that is now a phase of life behind me I will always hold on to the young mother I was and I will always cherish those babies and the young girl who shaped me into the person I am today.
Hudson has chosen to be baptised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This year we will be preparing and getting ready for his big day which we just found out today is September 7th 2019!
I can’t believe my baby is so grown up and making big decisions in his life already.
Way to go Hudson! May I be more like you when I grow up!
Love forever Mom
