A few weeks ago, I randomly decided to make this decal for my coffee cup. I'm not a morning person *at all* so it kind of fit. 😄 After this last week of dealing with (even more) things going on in my son's class while his teacher is on maternity leave, those mama bear claws finally came out. Whole new meaning. 
Parenting is hard. But I'm learning how to roar. 🐻 #mamabear #kidsdeserverespecttoo #mysilhouettecreations

I said I'd stop procrastinating when it came to these things. 
I lied.

Last minute #Maisie by @violettefieldthreads, with a collar added and fabric picked out by the 3yo ("Ooh, Mama, it sparkles." But baby, this is osnaburg. *blank stare* "It's pretty, Mama." Fine. 😂).

It's probably the summer our librarians have come to hate us when we walk in to return books. There's also another stack of chapter books. 😄 #everysaturday #raisingreaders #30booklimit

Such long overdue rest. No naps to work around. No diapers to change. No tantrums. 
Do what I want. Eat what I want. Sleep when I want. 
Bliss. 👙🍹🌊🐠🐚

There used to be nice rows of tomatoes and peppers. Now I have more weeds than veggies, almost overnight with the rain we finally got. And it's mostly nutsedge. Of all things, it had to be nutsedge. 😭 #garden #growyourown

I may have gotten more excited than I care to admit when I pulled in the driveway this morning and saw that my #daylilies were finally blooming. Which reminded me of the million times my grandma would point out all these flowers I had no knowledge of. Clematis what? I've reached old lady status, haven't I? 🙊

It's been a long winter. Even though we're well into spring, the cold hung around inside. The fatigue seeped into my bones. My body went haywire after weaning. I feel the ice melting, finally. New days, new energy, new growth. It's such a relief and all I can do not to grab my husband and say, "See! I told you, I never left! I'm here. I've always been here." #PPD #postpartumdepression  #postpartumanxiety #postweaningdepression #postpartumprogress #warriormom #honestmotherhood

It's been a frigid day, so we're all about the perler beads this afternoon while we're stuck inside the house. Why I didn't buy these sooner, I have no idea. #independentplay #peaceandquiet 😊

Yet another no snow snow day. This is why Northerners laugh at us. And why mama needs another cup of coffee. ☕❄⛄

Santa popcorn is finished. Just have to finish reindeer and snowmen doughnuts tomorrow. I'm officially insane. And quitting Pinterest for a long time. 😆 #kindergarten #christmasparty #roommom #silhouetteamerica #mysilhouettecreations
