Thank You Mom

The thing about having kidsthere’s a lot of "Schlepping." 

You’re always packing up your car with gear, sports equipment, dance bags, and driving kids to practices

I admit to some days, not enjoying it, and wondering if it’s all worth it.   

For weeks I have been schlepping my 3 kids to swimming lessons.  4 days a week.  My 3 year old son, Andy, wouldn’t get his head wet two weeks agoyesterday he dove in and swam!  When he surfaced and looked to find me to say, "I did it mom!"  You would have thought by my reaction he won an Olympic medal.

It made me think of this new Proctor & Gamble commerical.  It shows mothers waking their children up, taking them to gymnastics practice, and then cheering them on from the sidelines, at the Olympics.  Just be prepared to cry. 

All the schlepping.  It’s all worth it. 

It’s the hardest job in the world. 

It’s the BEST job in the world. 

Thank you Mom. 

Happy Mother's Day!

ROCK that Minivan

If you’ve had that discussion…about getting a new car…maybe for your growing family…and you trying to decide  SUV   or Minivan…

I get it…sometimes the minivan just doesn’t seem so cool…cruising down the road, but let me tell me why I rock that minivan. 

It's all about STORAGE CAPACITY!  Really excited for Mother’s Day Weekend…the kids and I are headed out for a cabin on a lake…and I have stuffed my minivan with two bikes, a bike trailer, 2 scooters, massive beach bag, backpacks for hiking, snacks galore, oh I also have room for 3 car seats.

But, I haven’t put in the suitcases yet. 

Uh-oh…

What are your Mother’s Day weekend plans?
