52|08 :: Intentional Living

I see grace in:

intentional living

Deciding to purposefully involve our 
child in day to day life is a practical way 
to live as the family we want to be.

Recently I have discovered that being a mom to a toddler is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. More on that in Monday's post, but in the meantime, this week I had a "light bulb click". I simply took Aiden down with me to do laundry and involved him in the thing I needed to do. He loves moving things around the house so I thought he would love putting his dirty clothes in the washer. He did! It opened my eyes to start seeing ways to involve him instead of "play with Aiden time" and "Mommy needs to get things done time". I know he is still young, but I think it's good to start now and will help us become a close knit family who are involved in each others lives. We did it again yesterday, and I think he especially likes sitting on the dryer. :)

About Me

My photo
I am a follower of Jesus and I am committed to living life for Him. I am the wife of a wonderful man who loves me so much and the mother to the best two little boys! I love my family to pieces and miss them everyday! I love my friends (obviously) lol. They all are such a joy to me! I am a youth pastors wife and I enjoy being involved in the lives of teens and just people in general. I love photography and find so much joy in the moments I want to remember being saved in time. Last but not least I love sunshine and being warm. :) That's me in a nutshell, the important things anyways. :)
