Sweetheart to my boy • Bio + foster mama to 3 little people • Wedding photographer @jessicashaephoto • Dallas, TX • Redeemed & so happy in Jesus.
I think it is a perfect example of what kind of daddy Josh is to tell you that he chose things that the boys enjoyed as much or more than he did to celebrate Father's Day. (Pancakes for dinner + Cars 3 makes for a pretty dreamy day when you're 3 and 2). He always loves to do whatever is going to make everyone else have the most fun. We don't deserve you JCS, but so glad we have you ❤️ #mylittlebandofboys
Things I loved about tonight: Judah's non-stop dialogue: "Is it his turn to bat the ball?!" "Yes! He did it! He threw the ball!" • Elijah eating almost that entire box of popcorn by himself + a hot dog + peanuts 🙊• And when Josh asked me if I was ready to go at about the 6th inning Judah panicked and said "No we're not ready yet!" ⚾️ #mylittlebandofboys
Here's to summer ☀️ hours spent outdoors getting as dirty as possible, midday baths, and long hard naps. #mylittlebandofboys
Happy 8 month birthday little M. In the 5 weeks you've been with us you've gone from silently observing life around you, with low muscle tone, (you wouldn't even straighten your legs to try and stand on them!) to jabbering/screeching, grabbing everything within arms length, army crawling everywhere and (almost!) sitting up on your own. We're so proud of you girl.
You may never even know we existed as a part of your life, but we will never regret loving you. #thesherrillsfoster
I told him when he came home tonight after a 4 day business trip that I was so glad he was home, and not just because he would be able to help with putting the kids to bed tonight. And that's how you know it's true love. 😉
I recently heard someone (I think in the @coffeeandcrumbs podcast?) describe modern day sabbath as "pretending like the work is done even when it isn't." And I love that idea. As a mom the work is literally never done, so having one day a week when I don't cook (we do sandwiches/leftovers for lunch and dinner out) and where I turn a blind eye to laundry + my to do list is so re-energizing to me. It is also a weekly reminder of what my status in Christ is like, the work has been finished, and there is nothing left for me to add to my salvation!
Looking for a consistent babysitter for my three little people starting this summer. The hours would be flexible/different from week to week. We live in N. Lewisville (near Flower mound/Highland Village) and the only requirements are:
•18 or older
•Have your own transportation
•Must be willing to get a background check + fingerprinting because it's a requirement for babysitting our foster girl. (We would cover the cost of this)
Feel free to tag someone you think might be interested or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like more info and we can talk about compensation and other details!
I try to remember to tell them when I tuck them in each night "I'm so glad to be your mama." Because I hope they always know what a delight they are to me. Happy Mother's Day, friends 💕
Love these boys so much. They've been the best "big brothers" to M over the past week, so concerned when she cries, always asking if they can hug her, and Judah told me this morning that he prayed for her mommy and daddy. Fostering is a family affair, and wether they realize it or not these two are knocking it out of the park. #mylittlebandofboys#thesherrillsfoster
I went grocery shopping this morning with all 3 littles, and totally forgot to buy toilet paper (which was pretty much the main reason I was going 😒). But now miss M is sleeping and the boys are playing in the backyard. I should probably be folding laundry or something but first I'm going to sit in the quiet for a few minutes with the latest magnolia magazine. (Full disclosure: I added this plant in just because I felt like the picture needed one more element. But I'm pretty sure Joanna would approve of that choice. #plantlady 🌿)
