It is What it is :: And I love it

I look at my life right now can be described as one loving mess!ย  I have days where I want to just pull my hair out, or not get out of bed to do the same thing as the previous day. Then there are times throughout those days when I laugh and am reminded of why I love being a momma, mind you there are some days where that never pops into my head AT ALL! I’ve realized that if I don’t have 3 of everything, someone will ultimately not be happy. Which results in screaming, temper tantrums and momma wanting to hide in the closet. But it’s all apart of the process. My babies are so dang precious to me, I love them with all of my heart. My wonderful husband is so good to me, he works full time, helps around the house & is always giving me breaks, just letting me have some “me time” to regroup myself…we all benefit from this. Lainey is four now, & pretty darn good girl, if I do say so myself. She is funny, witty, a good listener… Let me just say almost two yr old twins are TOUGH! This age is especially tough! Naps are iffy, and everything is “NO”. I hear the N.O. word ooooh I’d say 100 times a day. While one is getting into permanent markers in one room the other just dumped a bag of cereal all over the kitchen floor. Sweep it up you say? But why sweep 40 times a day when we could sweep once at end of the day, when they are in bed & won’t mess it up again! And lets not even start on the whole potty training twins thing…HAHA! But looking at them this December, I am reflecting on when they were all younger and how they are growing into such beautiful little girls, it makes me miss them already! It’s so strange, to say that I miss the days of yesteryear. Come to think of it somebody slap me because I very wellย  may be insane if I really “miss” this crazy time in my life, but if I think about it too much, I miss them just being my little babers.

My hubby/lovely assistant and I ventured into the studio to try and capture some Christmas pics of the girls…talk about comical chaos! I ditched the idea of a “classic Christmas shot” and went more for “let’s just get them in the same frame” kind of shot!! We spent about 30 min & I think Chris was DONE. He ended up in most of the pics, just trying to rally the girls and make them group together! Hahaha. It’s perfectly fine with me though, these pictures are so funny & describe life right now exactly as it is….and I love it.

Love your babies, enjoy the simple things, and don’t let the repeat messes and chaos make you go insane. Try and look on the sunny side of life. Just do your best. Remember that the people that mind don’t matter and the people who matter don’t mind. It’s only for a time that your life is like this, just cherish it..there will be plenty of time to sleep, clean, & relax in the future….boy I really hope that is true, ’cause I’m talking to myself more than anyone here! hahaha

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! Here are my lovelies & lots of funny outtakes! I hope you get a kick out of these as much as I do!

This last one on the left is the one that ended up being the one used for Christmas pics ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
