I love comedy that touches on life as a parent- it is funny to see what we go through in a lighter way and of course it can be fun to simply poke fun at ourselves…. sometimes.

I saw this video on my facebook feed and was rolling as I was listening to Jim Breuer talk about mothers needing sleep. I admit that there was a moment that I was embarrassed on how ridiculous I must sound sometimes, but the truth is, I do sprout horns from my head, foaming at the mouth could possibly happen and my head will start this evil twitch, if I don’t get sleep.

Thankfully though (Thank you Lord) I have a hubby that has learned me so well and he will quickly and with a smile, usher me to my room and demand me to turn on my tv and rest.

For all you other moms out there who feel sleep deprived – you are not alone! For the dads and hubby’s of the world, think of this like a training module- all in good love.

Pretty in pink she is! This little peanut was so adorable and I enjoyed holding her and getting to know her. I was so grateful to be able to photograph this momma and her newest little one, as I have known her extended family for a very long time and when there is a new baby in the family, I too, celebrate joyfully.

You have seen my newsfeed bleed with lots of images of milk bath sessions and I once again have to squeal in delight and tell you that I so enjoy these sessions and honestly never tire of doing them. I had this momma bring in florals that she would enjoy and I layed out clothing options from my collection for her to choose from. This pink dress is one of my favorites and it is so comfortable to wear- granted when you step in a tub of water with clothes on, it can feel a little awkward.

During the session, I let mom and baby just soak together- relaxing as I capture the moments between them. To me, these sessions are pure and natural – ok besides wearing a dress in the water… and it is not often I take a bath with flowers, but I totally should! Milk bath sessions are a great way to just have that one on one time with baby. Leave the worries and rush of the day behind the bathroom door and relax with baby. You and baby will even get the best skin treatment ever with Bebe de Luxe coconut and oatmeal soak- and smell amazing!

Funny Bone Friday! Starting this week, get your laugh on!

 

Stand up comedy is a hit and miss with me- honestly it is never something I sit down to search, but there have been many times by accident my hubby and I have watched some pretty funny people. My favorites are comedians that poke fun at parenting because honestly that is my life and there are times where I feel like I have got to be the only one experiencing this… so when a comedian shares a similar story or situation- I laugh till I cry or the back of my head hurts from smiling too much. Some of my favorites are Anita Renfroe, Tim Hawkins, John Crist, Bill Engvall, Christopher Titus, Craig Shoemaker, Michael McIntyre, Jim Gaffigan, plus more.

Usually it is a simple search on YouTube for a specific thing and then I am distracted by many other videos that sucks me in. But it is always a good time.

I decided that we as moms and caretakers, our days can be so hard. Between the listening of a toddler screaming for the wrong colored cup you gave him at lunch, bills pilling up on the desk, the dust bunnies that multiply faster than you can blink, spilled milk, menu planning, homework after school hours, and sports with 4 different kids AND still have to be a successful housewife- holy-slap-me-silly… We all need a little laughter in our life, so I would love to dedicate one day a week to sharing some funny bits – either with a shared video, a cartoon, or even adorable things kids say. I want to bring a smile to your week.

Of course you can always contact me and share a funny with me- I would be happy to pass it along!

So to start off this new quest to make you smile; how about a funny clip from Time Hawkins about Nursery Rhymes.

Growing up as a military brat, we moved a lot. A LOT!! Which means that I constantly had to make new friends and attend new schools then I would have ever imagined, but it also meant not being near extended family. Nana’s, grandpa’s, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins! As much as I loved seeing the adult family members and getting loved on, I loved it even more when us cousins got to hang out. I miss that.

When a recent phone call came in to schedule a family session – focusing on the cousins, I knew this was going to be a special day. This was going to be the first time all of these little girls were going to meet. When family lives across the states AND you have kids; hoping in a car for a road trip is equivalent to being a juggling ninja hoarder. So much stuff- little car space- then need to plot out mentally how you are going to entertain any child sitting in their car seat for more than an hour- YIKES! It is just one of those things that just take planning. But finally these sweet sisters (the moms) were planning a visit with family- to meet family.

It is hard living far away as my brother and his family are states away and visiting them seems more like a 20 year plan.

 

Just days before our session in Sandpoint, Idaho, the weather was beautiful. Spring looked like it staked it’s ground. Then our session day rolled up and the clouds rolled in – RAIN. A little change of plans, but I was game for whatever these little ones wanted to do.

We all gathered in the dining room and I just watched and clicked away as I witnessed them being around each other and also watching them be who they were separately. I always find it so enjoyable when I get to just sit back and just watch babies be babies… and kids. Children are what they are and they are not {usually} afraid to show you that. I enjoyed my time with the girls as we played bubbles, bounced balls around, played with stuffed pony, and just let them be.

And cute they are!!

Here is a sneak peek into our session.
