Today I am remembering to be thankful. I suppose I should remember always, but everyday stressors lead us to forgetting. Sitting here awake on a Saturday morning at 5am should make me mad. I mean I need sleep right? Instead I am thankful.

The silence of the house while I sip my coffee is giving me a chance to do something that I have not done in months. BREATHE! It’s giving me a chance to relax and breathe. Feeling thankful for this opportunity I am now ready to handle the days events of a birthday party and some family pictures with the in-laws.Β  That’s right we are going to get a bunch of kids together and try to get their pictures taken! Wish is Luck because we will certainly be needing it!

The past few months have just been nonstop going. Whether at work, or home. Between Birthday parties, Ballet and School events, we have really only come home to sleep. It’s just been completely exhausting. Once you add a 5yo who refuses to sleep in her bed due to an irrational fear of the darkΒ  which can only be cured by sleeping in mommy’s bed. Well, you get the point. I’m not sleeping.

I have been praying and begging for this moment for awhile, not getting it leading me to believe that I would need to be committed if I didn’t just get a moment to relax and its here. God knows what we need and when we need it.

Oh wait! Time is up! 6yo is awake and I must go now. Moment of silence you were awesome! Let’s do this again sometime because I have surely missed you!

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.
