Becoming better....

Moments like the ones above are convincing me that I may be becoming a better Mom. The girls and I were having some fun one night before bed and snapping some pics. I can't remember the last time we laughed like that together. I tend to be the rigid, keep on task as much as possible and get stuff done kind of mom. This moment here...We should have been getting ready for bed....We had been out later than usual at the Rockets banquet....But we started being silly and I was enjoying it. I was taking in the moment and enjoying their laughter and how much they were enjoying me playing along with them. I was realizing how much more important that is than what time we were getting to bed. 

Now....did I do this the rest of the week? Not necessarily. Lol. Of course we had other enjoyable moments but maybe not necessarily at bedtime. Lol. But that's ok. I'm learning that growth is slow but growth at any speed is still growth. 

That means I'm becoming a better Mom in my mind and a better person. It's only a little bit but I don't have much confidence in that arena sometimes so that makes me happy.

Day to day

I truly don't understand how some days I notice how alive and wonderful I feel and some days I feel like my world is swallowing me up and I'm drowning alive.  I guess that's just life.

Barbells for boobs

Last weekend I participated in a fundraiser workout at Ronin Fitness for breast cancer awareness.

We ended up raising over $1200 and the event went great! Below are some pictures throughout the day. I'm so glad it was such a success.
