I’ll admit that I lose track of my goals, priorities and life in general – wayyyy too easily. With our typical family stuff, I forget to really sit back and enjoy the little things. Like -going to our favorite little ranch (Copper Horse Riding Ranch) for lessons and letting the boys run around feeding and petting the farm animals.
There are times when I get home and instantly dread making dinner, cleaning up toys, entertaining my boys (and the dogs), simply –
ADULTING! That’s when we pick up a quick subway and head straight to our local Bridgeport pond and feed the ducks.
There’s been many days when I feel overwhelmed with keeping my house tidy, clean and organized. The truth of it, I’m not tidy, clean or perfectly organized. I’m a working mom with two boys under the age of 4 years old and a husband who loves to ride his motorcycle and enjoys playing guitar. In the past, I would come home from work and feel so damn annoyed when I saw toys in the living room, a messy countertop and simply…a chaotic house. I wasn’t enjoying the simple things. Lately, I’ve said…Fuck it!
With that type of attitude, I’ve become happier!
We recently we to Sea World and enjoyed a day full of new adventures with the boys. Now that Sonny is almost 5 years old, he’s been venturing more into digital world. We have always been open about him using our iMac/computer, iPad/tablet, and of course our cell phones. However, now that we’re traveling more often, I was looking into purchasing a DSLR camera for our family. Since he’s seen me check out many reviews about different cameras, he instantly jumped on the wagon as well and wanted a camera for himself.
One of my best childhood memories has always been our camping and off roading at Pismo Beach, California – Oceano Dunes. While growing up, I could feel the salty beach wind sprinkle sand across my face, my hair would be wild and messy. The shore was filled with camp fires and loud engines roaring. We’d run out to the ocean and jump straight into the freezing water, not having a care in the world. Those were some of the best childhood memories I’ve ever had. We were away from home, with limited or minimal items and entertained ourselves with great conversations, the beach, or with my dads off roading adventures.
I’ve been debating on what to do for Sonny’s 3rd Birthday.
He’s obsessed with anything that’s country related to farm animals, boots, cowboy stuff, you name it! There’s so many cute decorations on Etsy, it’s impossible to settle for one style.
