No Comments Adventures, Kids, Parenting, Raising Children, Uncategorized

Well, this one hit me pretty hard.


He’s ten. He’s amazing. He’s made me into the person I am today.

I’m a better person because of him.
Ten years as a Mom.

Definitely not an expert. Still learning as I go along. But it’s been an amazing journey with wonderful people all along the way to help me learn what I know now.

So here’s what I know…

I know that days are long and years are short.

I know that kids are full of the true meaning of life.

I know that being a Mom is now my greatest accomplishment.

I know that there is always room in your heart to love another child.

I know that I have never felt more complete than I do now.

I know that my greatest fear is having anything happen to any if my children or my husband.

I know that life is a long journey and I am only along for the ride.

I know I still have so much to learn.
This journey of life and all it’s lessons. Still such a long road ahead. I’m definitely excited about more adventures to come. I can only dream about what is still in store for me as well as them.

Happy Birthday Jake. Here’s to many MANY more!
