Life Lessons From My Kids

God has blessed me with being a mama for over fifteen years.  Nine kids later, I would consider myself very fruitful!  I started out my mothering journey worried about what I would teach my kids.  I quickly learned that my kids teach me just as much as I teach them.  Here is what they have taught me so far:






Pack light.


Take time to relax....

Take time to relax….

Or just hang out!

Or just hang out!



Don’t forget to eat your veggies.



If you try, you might fly!


But you might have to fight for it!



Smile even when you don’t feel like it!


 Most importantly, family’s got your back.  No matter what.




Perfection Pending

  1. 1. I love this idea. Our kids teach us so much. I know I’m much wiser because of them. Or they just consider me more of a wise ass. Either/or.

    2. Anyone who has had a second or third child knows how much cooler life is when they do stuff to each other. Even better when you can capture it in photos. The baby being held up by his smile? Perfect example.

    3. If my college courses were anywhere near as interesting and interactive as my kids are, maybe I’d have spent less time on academic probation.

    *-Glad I found this post through the Manic Mondays linkup.


      • 1. Love that knows no bounds.

        2. Incredible experiences as one who sees many more extensions of herself than many of us could imagine.

        3. A legacy of love and awareness of our place in the world that will live on through so many people in so many ways.

        Yep. That about sums it up.
