The Mom Workout- My Messy Beautiful

I love Glennon at Momastery for a myriad of reasons, but mostly for her she-has-me-in-stitches humor, the bravery in which she shares her stories, and her raw, gut-honest words. We’ll be friends one day, but until then, I was inspired to join her Messy, Beautiful Warriors Project, where writers and bloggers from all over, share the truth of their story as a reminder that WE ARE IN THIS CRAZY MOM ADVENTURE TOGETHER. If you have a story to tell about life, faith, friendship, or parenting, by all means, join us! CLICK HERE!

How do babies come out?

Was not prepared for this one, friends.

Maybe in a couple years, but now? Really?

And so we jumped in with both feet to the baby convo with our oldest.

It went like this: {nonchalantly} during a snack, with a full mouth of Cheez Itz, So mom, how do babies come out? Followed by quick pause, eyes boring into mine. And don’t tell me from your bellybutton because I’ve seen yours, and it’s not big enough for a baby to come out of.

At the start of summer, Bryan and I began talking about our end-of-summer vacation. Working in youth ministry, summer = go time! and come mid-August, we are ready for some rest and relaxation while the rest of the world gears up for school.

The conversation circled around where we would go. Please keep in mind our discussion included a destination with kiddos…

Puerta Vallarta? We can totally survive on chips and guac for a week! And they have quesadillas for the lil’ munchers, right?

Hawaii? Out of our budget!

Palm Springs? Too hot!

Spain and Portugal? Yes please SANS kids!
