About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

I read a fantastic article yesterday that you can find here.

In short, the writer is telling Moms that it's not always easy to Carpe Diem but that you should enjoy those small moments during the day where you notice your children and can't help but say 'Wow'.

The article really struck a chord with me, because as a Mom of three beautiful little ladies I don't always...and here's the shocker... I don't ALWAYS enjoy this 'Mommy' business.

The days AND nights are long.

I get spit on.

Chewed on.

Yelled at.


Head butted.


Along with that 'fun' list of things I also become a referee, villian, a boss, boo boo fixer, jungle gym and master butt wiper.

That's the small list people.

During all of my day to day homemaking though I get small moments of complete joy.

Where I look at my babies and can't help but be in awe of how absolutely perfect they are.

How I would do absolutely anything to make sure they were safe.

I just stare and wish there was some way to explain to them exactly how much they mean to me and how they've completed mine and their fathers lives.

How amazing it is to watch these human beings that we created show love and compassion to their sisters.

Seize the moments people.

Because once they've passed...

You're back to referee and boo boo fixer.
