Sweet Reminder

You know what?

I really love my mama.

I was talking to her on the phone today, when I (frustratedly) said, "*sigh*, I've gotta go." I was holding a melting baby, the older boys were supposed to be cleaning their room, but appeared to be engaged in WW III, instead.

And my mama says, "I just heard something that I thought was nice...'When you have small children, the days may seem long...but the years go fast'."

Excuse me now, while I go hug my babies and dry my eyes.

  2. That was just what I needed, thanks, tell your mom thanks!

  3. Stuff like that just makes me stop in my tracks and remember why I'm a mommy to begin with - because I CHOSE to be. And those 5 little blessings may totally wear me out, but I love them each to pieces!

  4. Great blog and I love your header....Just blog hopping and enjoyed yours.....Hope you will stop by my new Christmas blog...There is a GREAT GIVEAWAY drawing on OCT 1st

  5. it's hard to keep that perpective sometimes, and we end up regretting it. i think i'm going to go kiss my daughter on her little sleeping head...

  6. That's right! I'm gonna go kiss all of mine! I hope I don't wake them up! hee hee hee

  7. Sniffle, sniffle! Tottie took her first steps yesterday! Yes! Time flies!

    Blessings & Aloha!

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 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 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!
