i’m sitting outside, waiting for leland to take a nap. 10 minutes go by…then 15…then 20. i hear him upstairs talking away…he’s still awake. i just got back from grabbing chic-fil-a for lunch and my hair is a mess. i am in jeans and a tank top from old navy. the laundry is piled high and backed up and our whole house probably needs vacuumed…badly. i don’t have it all together sometimes (most times) and that’s ok. i’m not trying to portray some kind of image because if i was, it would be false. i am just me, living the life of a young mom learning along the way.
so no, i didn’t eat an organic lunch or meet up with friends at some hip restaurant and no, my son doesn’t always take a nap the first (three times) i put him down. frustration with a toddler…a not-so-clean house…messy hair…lots of coffee….it’s all normal :) i am embracing these moments and the messy in life and i’m thankful for it. there is beauty in these messy, insignificant moments…i just have to keep looking for it.
