Family Adventure Funk

I have been neglecting my blog lately. We have been going on so many amazing adventures that I have wanted to share and it just hasn’t happened.

My son, who is three, has been in a stage of defiance. He is stubborn as a mule and can flip our day upside down in a matter of seconds. So I plan the best adventures for our family and by the end of them i’m not sure if I had a good time or not. Then when I get home and ready to write, all I can think about is the monkey in MY circus.




It takes me a few weeks to be able to reflect on all of the positives and forget the tantrums. When I do, I realize just how wonderful our adventures are.  I have yet to come up with a way to reason with my little mans emotions but I do need to move past them and not allow them to shape our days.

He is going to be four in a few weeks and I would like to think that with the blowing out of his candles, an older, less crabby son will emerge but if I am honest with myself, I know it wont. Mommy peace is a unicorn I may always be chasing but i’m willing to do so knowing that this is God’s plan for me.

So let the adventures continue and my writing be on point for this holiday season because there is so much to share!
