Today I Was A Mom

This has been a crazy week. Two bdays my girls are just days apart. And on both of their days I had work commitments. While they seemed happy with the family parties and everything came together...that ugly, nasty, useless guilt nagged me all week.

I was just so rushed during both parties that today when they had the friend party I wanted to nail it. But guess what today I also had a work commitment. However it was before and not after. So that helped.

The cakes were perfect, we kept the games easy, only one girl got hurt, & no blood was involved, the gifts were amazing, & we had one little girl who we met at the park who crashed the party but I had extra goody bags.

I have MANY jobs. But this is the most important, the one I fall short at the most, the one that is the eternal investment, and today I rocked it!

(and dad helped)


  1. Great photos! Looks like you (and your husband) made a couple of little girls very happy. You're awesome! :)

  2. great blog and great pics (as always) are an awesome mom and i am very proud of you. i love you sooooo much!!!

  3. Looks to me like your girls had a great day! I am glad that I am not the only one who feels like I let my children down due to work commitments...but I try to think about the fact that if nothing else they are learning a valuable lesson from me in the process. Sometimes things don't go the way we hope they will but life is about making the best of what you have!

    Congratulations on a great birthday party!!

  4. Those are some pretty little girls and pretty cakes, too! What fun to have birthday parties. I remember my childrens' parties with such joy...we still laugh about them together, and they're in their late 30's now! :] You're making memories, for sure, Bri.

    Just stopping by to see you from Goodreads, as I said I would. It's nice to get to know you better.
