In the kitchen you will find us dancing, or stirring up muffins and trouble,
I have found that having two kids brings me all the same joy; my joy is now just double.
Life is one big juggling act with a toddler and a baby that’s now on all fours;
Trying to teach a big sister what it means to share; that what is “mine” is ours.
We practice silliness on rainy days and all other days in between,
I have learned it’s best to just give up, when I’ve lost my will to clean.
I believe in kisses before bed, at hellos, goodbyes, or frankly just whenever,
We practice hugs and high fives every day, especially if they’ve learned something clever.
Good manners are a must; however spoiling is also encouraged,
Love is demonstrated through actions not words and put downs are always discouraged.
I make no apologies for lots of pink and for dressing my girls alike,
Not that my kids are girly girls they like dirt and sand and will one day ride a bike.
We practice discipline with consistency and try our best to follow through,
But we can eat some humble pie those times we’ve been wrong too.
I don’t believe in perfection as that pedestal is far too high,
I do believe in the lighthearted, so we laugh more than we cry.
I believe this job takes balance, so we do date night and parent as a joint venture,
I always surround myself with moms who also see motherhood as life’s best adventure.
Every day is something new; I never know what we can expect to see,
But most of all, I try to be the kind of woman I want my daughters to be.
