I'm gonna miss this...


Somedays, when I'm faced with this:


I wonder when it will get easier. I wonder when my days won't be filled with needs, demands, requests and chaos.


And then I realize...


I realize it'll all be gone too soon.


And I can wait forever to have "too soon" arrive.

"Tho the days seem long,
The years go fast."

  1. I get it! I SO get it. I try to remind myself of this fact every day. Some days are better than others, but it's so true!

  2. I have days like that too. Especially lately when the youngest thinks it's funny to flush random things down the toilet. But I know that in a few years she won't be so little & I will really miss these days.

  6. OK. This is just the post I NEEDED to read today. Thank you! I am often so frustrated and at my wits end with my toddler. But you are right. I will miss it. It goes too fast.

    Thank you!

    Have you heard the Dariu Rucker song "It Won't Be Like This For Long" yet? It makes me cry every.single.time.

  11. I think these thoughts almost every day. And I love that quote at the end. Couldn't be more true than that.

  12. Have you seen this video/heard this song:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=at_lUnFjXg8
    It came out right about the time my DS decided he wanted to SCREAM his infant head off all day long. I thought I really had made a poor decision in having children... then I watched this video and bawled my eyes out and hugged on my son. It's definitely a good thing to keep perspective as a parent. I am confident this is the only reason each and every one of us is still alive today-- otherwise our parents might have killed us too :)

  13. oh, haha, I just realized someone else posted a link to the video. oh well... great minds think alike!

  14. So very true, I have to keep reminding myself of that lately. I know there will come a time when I will actually miss this chaos even though some days it is enough to make me scream. I just have to take a deep breath (sometimes go in a completely different room and take a couple of deep breaths) and then remind myself that all too soon my babies will be grown and won't come to me quite as much as they do now. Then I scoop them up and love on them and try to hang on to my sanity til bedtime :)

  15. Such a timely post...my boys went to camp together. For the first time they left me behind. With my husband at work, my house felt so empty. I can't wait for them to come home :)

  16. Very true. She's such a doll.

    I'm now singing "You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back, you're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast...."

  18. I totally hear ya! Some days I just want my boys to be bigger so that I can get a break...but then I realize I'm gonna miss these days sooooo much. Plus I'll be really old ;)

    Great pictures. Do you use Photoshop? I just bought it and I'm sooooo confused!

  19. Hey I've seen those faces in my house recently. My soon to be 4 year old is very practiced. Oh but just you wait. Oh the faces of a teenager...it will drive you mad certain days.

    So eat up these sweet little faces, the cute turn of the face, the hip kicked out. Soon it will be gone

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
