YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!!!

We work a hard schedule where one of us is working/going to school until after 9pm 2 to 3 nights a week. Our days are long and we don't get enough sleep. As I reflect on this season of Thanksgiving I appreciate the little things...


So this is something I appreciate: The giant smiles & "MOMMYs!" I get when I show up to pick the kiddos up. And hearing everything DS liked about his day.


What do you all appreciate about your day to day?

I hear ya!

I appreciate that I get to see Juliana throughout the day and sneak in plenty of cuddles, yet I still get that adult interaction and take where I'm not chasing after a toddler. It's hard to believe working is more relaxing that taking care of her, but most of the time that's true!

Even on the days where work is a struggle and a mental drain, the trade off is all positive for me being able to catch a snuggle here and there and have lunch with Maggie every single day, and being able to avoid running around after her 24/7!

I appreciate that I am able to get away during the day, it seems like the little amount of time I do get with them, means more.

Ditto! My feelings exactly. And nothing is better than seeing him run towards me with a huge smile on his face when I pick him up every afternoon.

It warms my heart every night when I pick themup and they come running over with a smile on their face and give me a hug
