Twirling Girls

IMG_1529Dressing my girls in their tutus, I am in awe of their beauty. Kids are clumsy. They fall, get bruises and can be by definition anything but graceful.

There is just something about a ballerina tut that makes a woman look so graceful, poise and beautiful.  “I look like a Sunflower!” exclaimed the 7yo excitedly as she put on her orange and yellow dress for recital. Holding back the tears in my eyes, I said Yes, you do!

Those tear flowed out like a river dam as she danced so gracefully on stage. So sure of herself, so proud and confident. So beautiful as she pointed her toes and made her twirls. She  is turning into a beautiful dancer. She is the artistic one and I hope she sticks with it for a long time coming.

“I look like a princess from Frozen mommy!” Says the 5yo and she indeed look like a princess out of Frozen! With her beautiful tiara and blue princess tutu, she is living the dream that most little girls can only wish to have! The tears came again as my not so graceful child turned into a gorgeous little dancer. This is the girl whose bumps and bruises cover the entire length of her legs. The one who has had a black eye at the age of two because she couldn’t quite get her balance. The one who falls at least once a day, and yet there she was taking her beautiful, well positioned bow.

As I look at my husband and say “These girls are growing way too fast.” He sighs and says “I Know.” These are the years that we have. Soon  their lives will be consumed with friends and hangout spots and will be less about mommy and daddy. So for now as my kids watch spongebob on the t.v. I will enjoy this moment in time. The time when they want to be a princess, read a book with me or live every little girls dream of being a real ballerina. We don’t get these years back and for now I am going to stand here and twirl with my girls!

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.

One thought on “Twirling Girls

  1. Every time I feel like I just can’t do another taxi run of rehearsals and dance classes after another long day at work, I remember precisely this. I tell my self that these are the days that I am going to miss, and then I want to inhale and absorb every little molecule of it.

    Enjoy 🙂
