A Blog for My Grown Up Babes

"What lies before us and what lies behind us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I feel like if this is the only lesson that I am able to pass on to my kiddos than I did pretty good.  To me it your instincts, don't be afraid, let go, forgive, move on, and believe in yourself.

I think about this a lot and I wonder what of this early time with my children, they will remember.  And for that matter, I will remember.  I read these beautiful blogs, written by friends and strangers, and think what an amazing gift that will be someday.  When their babies are grown and can have an intimate look at what days were like when their parents were learning how to be their parents.  And so, I have decided to join the masses and write a blog...a blog for my grown up babes.

I want to be able to accurately tell my grown children what it was like.  The moments of laughter, panic, frustration, and pure joy.  I can already see how easy it will be to look back on these years with rose colored  glasses, and while this is a blessing, I also want to remember and pass on how hard we worked.

So, starting today, as a stay at home mama to a nearly two year old little girl and a three month old little boy, I am going to try and document our days for posterity's sake.

Hopefully there will be far more posts about how much fun we had, than rants about how hard it was to make it to the car...
