I live north of Boston, with my husband, two son's and dog (who is more like a child than a dog). We love to make the most out of each and every day and could easily be described as a family on the go. By day I am a social worker who works with older adults. By night I write and blog at The Family That Laughs Together I try my best to parent mindfully, learn from the moments and enjoy the ride.

Thankful for A House Full of Boys

With Thanksgiving a week away I can’t help but reflect on where I am today, in the moment.

Today I am the mother of two young boys, one a spunky 3.5 the other just 2 weeks old and hanging right now in my baby wearing sling.  My 3.5 year old is at pre-school so I am home with just my little guy listening to the sweet sounds of a newborn as he is cozy and warm and dreaming of, I assume, milk.

At times it has been absolute madness around here, with everything happening at the same time: newborn crying, dog needing to go outside, dinner burning, pre-schooler jumping off the stairs… husband downstairs “cleaning.”  In those moments I can’t help but feel overwhelmed.  Then, the moment passes and all is calm and wonderful once again.  Everyone is helping out and I once again can let myself breath and enjoy my house full of boys. Taking in the moments and enjoying the ride of this crazy wonderful life.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
