The Daily prompt gave us a daily challenge to write about going forward in time. No offense but who the hell wants to do that? I don’t want to fast forward to any day. Who wants to age or look older, and i definitely do not want to fast forward time with my children. They are growing up so fast. In my true to form fashion, I am following my own rules. I will post about a time I would like to rewind to. Yep, I am a rebel I know. Always having to do things my own way. I would go back to relive just one moment, because it is so special. My favorite memories from Christmas Eve 2012. Our house was recovering from influenza, and we weren’t really sure if we would get to enjoy Christmas with our families that year. Determine to have a good time with the girls, i proceeded with our annual Christmas eve bash. Just me and the kiddos making cookies, Christmas crafts and listening to some fun Christmas music! It was just on the heels of the Sandy Hook tragedy, and the awareness that these moments are so special became even more real to me. life is precious and we should not take it for granted. Sugar cookie dough was being rolled out by the girls, and Sassy pants decided that she would like it to snow. Well, since we don’t get no snow in Florida, two guesses as to what happened? Snowball fight with the all-purpose flower people! Throwing it at each other, on the floor. The laughing was my favorite, There is nothing sweeter than a child’s laugh! So much snow on the floor that they began to make snow angels! i will never forget their faces, or the fun we had that night, even though we were not quite feeling our best! People often ask me about the mess, and tell me I was brave. Well I don’t care about cleaning flour out of my carpet and cabinets for two weeks, because yes, that is how long it took to get completely clean. you wouldn’t believe the places I found flour in. I had my children, who despite the influenza were overall healthy and we were able to create that special memory together. so no, i would not fast forward time, because each moment is just too special, and besides being able to enjoy that one moment just one more time, I would prefer to be in the moment right now and take in every second of it. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so enjoy life to the fullest now and make it all worth it.
I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site. View All Posts
