Blissful and Domestic - Creating a Beautiful Life on Less

Monday, May 2, 2011

Last Friday I wasn't the one with the Super Mom complex, it was my littles. It was like they literally thought there was nothing I could not do. I was being run ragged all day. They couldn't get enough of me. Finally by dinner I was losing it. My son was sad I couldn't play Pokemon with him, for the 100th time that day I might add. My daughter was in the bath, wanting to show me her "super cool tricks" and I had to get dinner on the table. It was 6:05pm and for a family who usually east at 5, we were a tad hungry and a bit cranky.

Well I started to lose it, knowing I couldn't do everything and feeling pretty loserish, since I wanted to do everything with them. Finally my hubby came and saved me. He didn't wrap me in a warm embrace, kiss my neck and whisper "It will be ok". He didn't get off the computer and finish up baths and play pokemon, with a sulking red headed boy. What he did was better and made me laugh and fall in love with him all over again.

He looked at me and said, "Babe what can I do?" I replied with a "I don't know just help me do something, please". Hubby got up from his chair and walked over to me. He looked in my eyes and said this; "Now Danielle you need to remember you ARE Super Mom. The kids have already decided. They just can't get enough of their mommy. Now put the cape on, you shouldn't have taken it off, and be Super Mom". I seriosuly died laughing. His sarcasm just killed me and laughter was exactly what I needed at that moment. His sweet heart, knowing exactly what I need, is what makes me fall in love with him over and over again.

After laughing my butt off for a few minutes, things got better. Hubby did help me set the table and perk up the sulking red head. I got miss priss out of the bath and we ate, which we all needed at now 6:30pm.

The rest of the night went well. I decided to bust out my camera and I started taking pictures of the small things. The things I don't want to forget. This is advice my motherinlaw gave me before having children. She told me that when things get stressful, take pictures. This absolutely works! I do it often and my stress melts away and I am filled with gratitude for all I have been blessed with.

So here are my stress relieving pictures and all I am thankful for this Monday:>


Anticipating the popping up of toast.


little snacks left behind because of imaginary play


unattractive pictures my children take


quite moments when they are playing,
but learning as well


 Special Belly buttons, which make you go Super Duper fast.
Her words, not mine.


Hannah at the Beauty Parlor.
Doesn't she look fabulous?


Dirty dishes.
It is a reminder that we enjoyed a meal together as a family.


Messy toothpaste left on the sink each night.


Freshly brushed teeth. 
All ready for bed.

And a little food for thought.

"As mothers in Israel, we are the Lord’s secret weapon. Our influence comes from a divine endowment that has been in place from the beginning. In the premortal world, when our Father described our role, I wonder if we didn’t stand in wide-eyed wonder that He would bless us with a sacred trust so central to His plan and that He would endow us with gifts so vital to the loving and leading of His children. I wonder if we shouted for joy 12 at least in part because of the ennobling stature He gave us in His kingdom. The world won’t tell you that, but the Spirit will."

-Sheri L. Dew
Let's all put our capes on and be the SUPER MOMS God made us to be.
He loves us and will strengthen us each day to raise those sweet spirits, which he blessed our families with.
