I think I’ve always been the type of person that prefers to learn things the hard way.
I’ll take anyone’s advice and try to follow it, but 9 out of 10 times, I’ll do what I “think” is right because I’d rather learn from my own mistakes than be a by-stander of someone else’s.
I like making mistakes ~ each one means I have so much more to learn from this world.
P.S. going for a bike ride today was a mistake...I still feel like 💩

We did a zoo day today with our kids and man was it busy. No one works on a friday anymore I guess....BUT who am I to judge, the hubby and I both have awesome schedules to allow more family time than time away, but I digress.
Our car conversation on the way there was potty words and how its not ok to say them anymore. Jensen, my almost 4 yr old had gotten in trouble at preschool for saying certain potty words, not in a bad way, in reference to going to the bathroom and yes maybe, probably, yip very likely in reference to what he did in the potty.😂😂
My point though, or I should say Lena's point.."mom why does he get into trouble when he says potty words? We use to sing about the potty when he stopped wearing pull ups". My girl you are right, we sang about pee, about trying to get the poopies out, why now are we telling him know when we use to celebrate its very happenings?
Man kid life is confusing, and adulting is rough trying to explain to and reason around my very sane 5 yr olds logic. .
Moral of my story...we still say potty words in our house. Sorry, not sorry. I have two kids under 5 and we are getting through the day over here🙌
What a remarkable virtue to teach your grandchildren; the ability to practice restraint, delayed gratification, patience, in a world where so much is "instant" and “self motivated”. Patience is hard to learn. I’m definitely still learning! One of the first steps is taking my eyes 👀 off of ME! 👵🏻
Are you learning to be more patient? Are you modeling patience to your grandchildren? I ask myself these same questions. 🖱2️⃣Double click PATIENCE if you want to grow in patience as you live out life before your watching grandkids. .
Faith requires patience. Contentment and self control require patience. Raising families, investing in them for the long haul, and lasting friendships require patience. .
Better is a patient person than a warrior, one with self control than one who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32
Your negative thoughts will never lead you to loving yourself.
Telling yourself what a failure you are won’t make you any more successful.
Telling yourself you’re not living up to your full potential won’t help you reach a higher potential.
Telling yourself you’re worthless and unlovable won’t make you feel any more worthy or lovable.
The only way to achieve self-love is to love yourself, regardless of who you are and where you are in life and even if you know you want to change.
You are enough just as you are. Self-Love will be a little bit easier every time you remind yourself of that.
YOU ARE ENOUGH!! ❤️

I didn’t think this activity would be too special, but Mackenzie has been at this for three weeks! It’s now on her toy shelf so she pulls them off, drops the sticks in to hear a fun little kerplunk sound, and organizes. Sometimes she matches the colors and other times I can’t really follow her plan but it’s all good because she is playing independently and I LOVE when she gets creative 🙌🏻💃. ⠀
All this color magic and entertainment for free. ⠀
HOW TO: ⠀
A few weeks ago I had some friends over and asked their kids to paint these empty snack cans. Once they dried, I made (terribly ugly) holes in the top lid and grabbed some already colored popsicle sticks we had from Dollar Tree. Bada bing, bada boom!
