Little Talks


YOU: You started preschool last week and are slowly adjusting.  You cling to my leg every single time I drop you off, but never cry.  You love being at home and always want to play for "just a few more minutes".  You are obsessed with the words poop, bottom and butt and have frequently found yourself in a time out for saying them repeatedly.  You love fiercely and give the best kisses.   You tell us all you love us at least a zillion times each day.  You love dinosaurs, eggos and legos.  You are awesome and I love you so very much....and yes...I even love your butt. 

ME: I'm struggling to find my "purpose" while you kiddos are in school.  I'm filling my days with exercise, books, lunch duty and Pinterest perusing.  But I miss you all more than you know.  I struggle with wanting to be "the best" mom to you both, whatever that means... and hope that I'm doing an okay job. I'm dreaming of school track out, fall, changing leaves, cooler weather and yummy pumpkin spice lattes. 

Little Talks is a new series I am introducing here on my blog.  I have a strong desire to tell more stories and to write more letters to my children.  I document our happenings and memories, but often find that I leave out "the heartfelt" stories in the rush.  Little Talks will share the "here and now" of my children, as well as myself.

  1. Totally relate to your feelings Stephanie and I'm sure a lot of us mums do. You're not alone but are almost certainly already being that 'best mom' you try to be. Have a listen to Kat Lee's 'Inspired to Action' podcast for some motherhood cheerleading! xxx

  3. That is a wonderful idee. And I do that too: writing letters to my children and I put them in their scrapbooks. So they and I can see the change in life and person.

    1. I'm trying to be better about writing down the ins/outs and feelings of "right now"! I love that you do that too, Julia, and I know your children will treasure them! xo

  4. PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP) ® credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Recently I went for a PMP prep course by the training provider mentioned above, the instructor was too good and I passed with relative ease. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP class in my company.
