I lost my cool with Callie this morning.
It definitely was not one of my finer moments and I sat in the car after drop off and cried.
I know being a parent would be challenging especially with all the hurdles our family faces.
I knew that being a mom I would learn new things, learn about life and learn about kids.
But I had no idea how much being a mama would teach me about myself.
About patience and grace.
About how I love.
About how I forgive, especially myself.
About how I handle stress and obstacles.
About how I handle the little things and the big things.
Luckily, my kid is amazing and will have forgiven me by the time I walk into her classroom today to pick her up.
I’m so thankful to her for all of these life lessons she’s teaching me and will continue to teach me as we get older.
My sweet Bear, Mama always thought I would be the one teaching you about life…..but in reality, it’s you teaching me.
Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
