My Sunbeams


Here's to an ordinary day like today, when motherhood kept me especially busy, so much so that it's after midnight and I still need to put the clean sheets on our bed that is covered with three mountains of fresh and unfolded laundry. But I have to remind myself that the laundry will always be there, but my two little sunbeams are growing, growing, growing until one day they will be big sunbeams shining their lights far from home.

  5. Where do you buy Bella's clothes? Those boots are darling! And the pictures are so good. They inspire me, as does your prioritizing. I need to better at remembering that the dishes, dust, laundry will always be there.

  6. I love this entry! It is so true that as a mother you have to remember to keep your focus on your children for one day you will wake up realizing they are grown. I am going to put what you wrote up somewhere were I can read it with pictures of my kids. Thanks for sharing this Marie.

  7. Aw, thanks, Shauna and everyone! This was a reminder to me more than anyone. I'm so quick to put playing with my kids at the losing end of my priorities, but I'm working on it.

    Oh, and I got Maggie's boots at that fancy Wal-mart store. :)

  8. Such great lighting in your pictures! And at least your laundry was on your bed. I tend to keep it in the dryer and we pick things out for a few days till I get around to folding.
