Sometimes it’s just for me!

Is it wrong I love this!? I actually fell out of bed laughing at it. I am a silly dorky girl most of the time. But when I’m stressed I laugh at everything. My famous line is “Sometimes it’s just for me!”

I’m with a car load of teenage boys. The boys who aren’t my own have been laughing with me all day. However, my kiddo keeps  saying… Geez mom!!!  Why is that so funny to me!?

It’s odd being an adult with a car load of teenagers… And I’m the one who wants to runaway. Lol. Dying so much.

I love these kids but I’m soooo tired!

Yes! I think I’ve lost my mind this time. 🙂

I’ve disengaged comments on this one because…. Sometimes it’s just for me! 😉

Wish Right Now… Airplanes


So airplane, airplane, sorry I’m late

I’m on my way so don’t close that gate

If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight

And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night


I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now


I repeat these lyrics over and over everyday.

My boys make me smile. I will hear them singing these words under their breath.

They have no idea we repeat them for different reasons. They like the beat and the way the speakers boom when it’s played. I repeat them because sometimes it’s hard being in charge of little (big)  lives…

Below is one of my favorite pictures of them. I ran into the grocery store. I gave them $20 to go to the dollar store. My oldest snapped the picture. He wrote on it and uploaded it to his Instagram…image❤️

Be a Simple Man 

To Both My Loves…

I knew you’d search for me.
You can stop searching now.
I never left you.
I’m the beat in your heart.
I’m the arms that embrace you.
I’m the gravity that grounds you
I’m the bones that help you fight.
I’m the skin that protects you.
I’m the sin that asks for forgiveness.
I’m the dreams that visit you.
I’m the eyes that fall in love.
I’m the heart that heals after broken.
I’m the ears that sees beyond beauty.
I’m the breath that is calm and deep.
I’m the mind that keeps you focused.
I’m the compassion you carry.
I’m the fool that comes alive.
I’m the lips that speek kindness.
I’m the intuition that keeps you safe.
I’m the tears that cleanses you.
I’m the music that never leaves you.
I’m the blood that runs through your soul.
I’m the feet that chase after your dreams.
I’m the fingers that grasp hope.
I’m the hands that create beauty.
I’m the scent that brings comfort.
I’m the knees that lock for challenges.
I’m the memories that love you.
I’m the link that connects you.
I’m the wings that carry you.
I am your Mother

Words of Wisdom……

Boys, Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. ❤️

Deep Breath…Deep Breath…

I always knew I’d go through hell, to hold a piece of heaven.

I’d do it all again without skipping a beat ❤️

Forgive me for my sins. I’m on my knees praying for forgiveness. I never wanted you to have my fate. I’ll take your debt. I’ll repay anything for you. I’ll take your burdens…

Raising Kids 

Don’t raise your kids to have more, raise them to be more ❤️

Time lord

I’m the Time lord  today ❤️

Mom and Walker (age 10) 

  • Walker: “Mom, what are we doing today?”
  • (Walker is talking British)
  • Me: “Walker, why are you talking like that?”
  • Walker: “I’m getting older and  my voice is changing.”
  • Me: “Wait, what does that have to do with you talking in a British accent?”
  • Walker: “You and Dad, always said  when Joshy, was going through puberty his voice changed!”

I felt like I did hundreds of crunches. You’re the funniest kid ❤️

I Am A Champion

I listen to this everyday. It’s always playing in my head.

It is inspiring and it gives me courage. Truly, one of my favorite videos.

When I first found this video it had 4,000 views. The video has close to 17,000,000 views now.

My boys listen to me chant the words..

They respond loudly…. I AM A CHAMPION!

The words benefit me more than my boys. However, it brings peace knowing they know the creed too.

It’s very fitting for the battle of life.

When my boys are near I use these  words…

Boys, I’ve been honored to mother you
