St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner (March 17th); my mom’s family comes from Ireland so I’ve always felt a connection with anything Irish. My mom had a beautiful Ireland photograph print that was hanging in our living room while I grew up.
Today my baby turns 6. I no longer will ever be a mom to a 5 year old; I can’t believe how quickly time flies by when you become a parent. Alex has been counting down the days to this 6th bday since the day after Christmas.
I told him, enjoy your 5′s; you will never get that time back. I told him he will turn 30 one day and wish he could go back and be little again. He looked at me like I was cray-cray. LOL
I’ve been in a spring cleaning/organization mode for the last month; I think being stuck indoors is to blame. (the silver lining to a horrible winter, right?). I’ve been working on organizing the kids’ school stuff and my crafting studio (always a work in progress!). Time to work on the kitchen now. Each month Close to My Heart posts a new printable and it’s perfect to the start of my kitchen goals, organizing the pantry.
Today would have marked Dr. Seuss’ 110th birthday. As a mom to 2 young boys, Dr. Seuss is a big name in our home. When I was a child, I just loved any book by Dr. Seuss because of the funny stories, bright colors and the rhyming words. As a mom, I appreciate how much Dr. Seuss has educated us all by thinking outside the box; there is no right or wrong and it’s okay to be silly. My oldest boy (who is 7) just loves to color but he always wants to color everything “right.” I told him, “there is no right or wrong Sean.” Just color the way you want.
