A split second from our last adventure that looks like we kind of have our crap together.
Spoiler alert- we do not. 🥴
This fishing trip was short lived and involved some tears, the phrase “use your walking feet” played on repeat, and many tangled fishing lines.
I will never claim our outings run seamlessly, because we have three kids and that’s just not a thing. 😂
We have so many “next time we should…” moments, but we’ve also found so many things that work for us.
The chaos comes with the territory, and doesn’t stop us from adventuring.
Do you have any tried and true tips for outdoor adventures with kids? I always love hearing what works for other people!
No one can prepare you for the high volumes of love that fill your heart when you become a mother, just like no one can prepare you for how hard it can be.
Its only fitting that the thing that brings us the most joy also tests our sanity and patience.
We learn to soak up the small moments, take all the pictures, and the power of a few deep breaths.
We learn that there is no such thing as a perfect mom. That there are different ways to parent and it’s OKAY.
There are hard days. Days where we don’t feel like we can keep giving it all, but somehow we do.
It isn’t easy to see the beauty when you’re in the thick of it all, but these are the days we will one day look back on and wish we could go back and slow time down a bit.
Motherhood is messy, chaotic, wonderfully beautiful, and unlike anything else.
I’m incredibly blessed to have these three precious souls call me mama.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mamas out there. 🤍
