The one about fresh starts

January 2, 2017


I feel like this iPhone snap pretty much sums up motherhood. 

Someone needs a bath.

Moms pants are filthy by the end of the day and she's tired. 

But at least my month old pedicure still looks pretty good. 

Today was the first day of 2017. It was a lot like 2016 but with intention. I spent part of the day doing my normal mom-of-five duties (laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning) but then I spent another part reading a book... without pictures! A real grown up book! I know, right?!? Amazing. 

Then we ate dinner and started getting everyone ready for the week ahead. Toenails clipped, behind the ears scrubbed and yes, shampoo Mohawks all around! 

It's a new year! 

It's a fresh start!

We washed off the negativity and tragedy of 2016 and are all squeaky clean and new ready for 2017. 

Well the kids are anyway. 

I'll be lucky if I remember to but my jammies on before I pass out. Oh well. #babysteps

Happy New Year!
