No one can tell you exactly what motherhood is like.  There is the moment when your child (or children in my case) is born and you're just an emotional ball of love.  Then you come home from the hospital and love turns into exhaustion.  Day to day, there is routine, laughs, feeling like you want to tear your hair out, smiles, irritation, but there is love.  It's a constant zig zag back and forth of all kinds of emotions.  It sort of reminds me of this beautiful scarf, colorful!  I just wanted to pair this with a simple casual outfit.  These wellie boots are a fun simple print mix to the complex gorgeousness (is that a word?) of this accessory.

Motherhood is something that I always wanted.  It hasn't been what I pictured though.  I LOVE my nuggets, but life isn't all laughter, fun, and roses.  We have moments that are down right tough.  But when the day ends, Jack and Ella are tucked in their beds, waiting for their bedtime story and song... life is good.  Last night I was reading to Ella from the "Jesus Story Book" (so wonderful for kids), the chapter on "The Great Lie".  It's the story of Satan, the father of lies, telling Adam and Eve the very first lie.  Telling them that God doesn't love them, she eats the apple, Adam eats the apple, they are ashamed.  I ask her if she knew what ashamed meant and she said, "embarrassed".  I explained that they are embarrassed because they sinned and now they know they are naked.  Her response, "Naked? Wait, go back, I want to see!"  Oh. My. Goodness.  I had the best laugh, tears and all.  Those are the moments I love.  The snuggles, the giggles, my love bugs, the nuggets.

Happy Monday.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend full of love, snuggles, and giggles :)

  5. First of all you look so polished in the most casual way. Love the chevron scarf and fun wellies.

    I loved every word of this post and Ella's response too, also. Motherhood is all those things you said and much more. It is roses and thorns all within one day but I love it and as long as our babies feel that love at the end of the day that's what matters.

    Always a pleasure stopping by Lulu. Welcome by as well. Happy Tuesday! Ada. =)
