Blog-tember - My Greatest Adventure

What is the craziest adventure you have ever been on?


Thanks to some really awesome family members, I have been pretty fortunate to have been on some great trips in my life… New York, Hawaii, California, Disney World, Yellowstone… and as much as I loved and cherished each and every little adventure, nothing compares to the adventure that I am on now…. Motherhood!




If you had told me that I would be the first of my friends to have kids at the age of 23, I probably would’ve looked at you like yeah right!  I always enjoyed babies growing up and did some babysitting, but I never felt like the “mother hen” of the group.  I knew I wanted kids one day but that was about as far as my dreaming got.  








When Jarrod and I had been married about four months, we got the biggest surprise of our lives.  We were pregnant!  A few months later, we welcomed a sweet little baby girl into our lives and had no clue what we were doing.  All of a sudden, we were in charge of this little human that pooped in my face and spit up in my hair and cried like a little monster when she was hangry.  We were expected to clothe her and feed her and teach all kinds of things.  To say I was a little overwhelmed would be a serious understatement.  I relied heavily on my mom and sisters-in-law for lots of advice and encouragement.  And slowly, I kind of figured it out… well I don’t think we ever truly figure it out but we made some progress.  








Fast-forward six years or so and that little baby is a beautiful bubbly little kindergartner with a little sister that is as strong and tough as they come.  I have a very long road ahead of me in this whole parenting thing but this adventure we have been on over the last 6+ years has been wild and crazy and the very best adventure I could ever imagine.  We’ve had lots of bumps, bruises, and tears, more wails and fits than I can count, some yelling and fussing and even a few stitches but we have also had a whole lot of love and happiness.  I did a little victory dance when those babies finally slept all night long in their own beds and a big high five when they peepeed in the potty.  I was filled with overflowing pride as those little tiny dancers took the stage and bubbled with joy when their teachers gushed about their sweet spirits.  I have been bent over in laughter.  I have been covered in tears.  I have been so extremely filled with love.




I would not change a single thing about this crazy adventure of motherhood.  Every tear, every smile, every moment is etched deep in my heart and I know one day too soon, I will look back on it all and just think… we made it and By George we did a pretty good job along the way.

  1. Sweet little family! Motherhood is such an overwhelming, crazy adventure but no other could bless you quite as much. Looks like we were definitely on the same page today Lacey!
