Hi! I'm Kathy Leigh. This is my personal blog. I stay up late A LOT. I like crude humor and shiny, pretty things. I enjoy vintage and retro items. Taking pictures is my hobby, I would like to be really good at it someday. Check out my family life blog here: http://katjuggling.tumblr.com/

This is how we celebrate the end of our first year of homeschool.  So proud of this boy and all his hard work.

Amos got a booster seat and is playing with it before we put it in the van.  He’s pretending to drive to McDonald’s and Chic-Fil-a and Skylanders are his happy meal toys.  I think he is also pretending to talk on the phone.

We bought him a Mickey Mouse blanket last night.  It’s huge, like for a twin size bed.  I think he’s in love.

dearbaby:

Last Sunday, Mother’s day, we all woke up in bad moods.

Had it been an average Sunday, I would have written off our rotten attitudes as “Oh well, let’s all go to bed early tonight and try again tomorrow.” But for some reason, I decided I was going to set some unreasonable expectations around…

This is why I read Melissa’s posts. I’ve been a mom for 9 years and most of the mother’s days I’ve been apart of were like this. In the trenches like any other day and not being made to feel special on a day that that is supposed to happen. Melissa is real. Her beautiful family and beautiful photos for a moment make you think her life is perfect. But if you read her words you see her heart. How she feels and what she cares about. Thanks for being brave and sharing the beautiful and the not so beautiful sides of motherhood.
