Hello friends! My name is Cheryl and I live over at That’s What Che Said.
As you can see from my photo above, I am a mom of THREE BOYS! My oldest is 8, my second is 4 and my newest addition, who I refer to as Spangenbaby, joined us in July of 2014. I am honored to be here today to share with you my word for 2015 and share a bit of me with you as well.
My word is ENJOY. I don’t remember much about my previous pregnancy because I had a 3 year old running around, an hour commute (each way) and a full time job. My husband travelled for his job weeks on end and often I was left to be the mom and the dad, which included shoveling a bazillion feet of snow in Minnesota winters. Thinking back I can hardly recall my pregnancy.
Spangenbaby was a long awaited addition to our family. I had 5 miscarriages before he finally stuck and decided to hang on for the ride! When we realized he was going to be a sticky baby, it was the first time in YEARS that I put everything on the back burner. I just took things day by day and really took the time to enjoy this fantastic miracle!
Of course we all know how fast kids grow. I sat there one night, holding this precious baby boy and couldn’t help but remember the late nights with my oldest. He was now 8 and I remember how I enjoyed every single minute of him…until things got busy in life! That moment then is when I chose my word. Enjoy.
This year I will ENJOY the heck out of life and these three wonderful gifts from God and my wonderful husband who puts up with all sorts of my crazy!
I will not fret over blog posts or trying to host all sorts of Pinterest parties. I will focus and ENJOY life with my three troublemakers! As I enjoy them, they enjoy me. Burying my face in my laptop stressing about posts and projects is not a way that I should ENJOY their childhoods! They go by so fast!
Thanks so much for letting me share my word with you today and my family with you!! If you ever want to stop over, my door is always open! My blog is full of DIY, Crafts, Freebies, Recipes, Mom Rants and Stories and so much more! Fun keepsake projects like these picture luminaries:
…as well as helpful things like How to Easily Remove a Label from a jar!
Have a wonderful new year, friends!
