To share my thoughts on motherhood would take more time than I have right now, but to sum it up: being a mom rocks. Sure it's hard, and to keep it totally real, Norah's going commando in half these pictures because she wet her pants (and peed all over my bathroom floor) but that's life, and I love it. I think about my life pre-kids and it was sweet, full of fun and tropical vacations. Now my life is full of poopy diapers and two-year-old sass and somehow it's better. Richer. Fuller. Blissful.

My little Norah is becoming quite the little model these days. Today I photographed these darling cowls for an Etsy shop and my daughter was the perfect model - until 10 minutes in she decided she HAD to go potty :) Regardless, we still managed to get some darling shots, isn't she a beauty?

I can't remember the last time I failed so hard at something. I'm a prepare-er. It's what I do. Christmas? Bought and wrapped by Thanksgiving. It's how I roll. So naturally for Easter I've been buying up little bits here and there. I don't know how the rest of you feel about Easter candy - but I'm pretty sure it's the best thing that's happened to my tastebuds and the worst thing that's happened to my blood sugar. Easter puts my pancreas into overdrive. So I had to continually re-purchase our Easter candy because this mamma lacks self control. So Saturday night as we're putting out the Easter goodies I'm thinking I really dropped the ball this year as I look at my kid's practically empty baskets. But I knew it was all good because, they don't know. They don't care. Easter morning comes and goes and my little are all smiles with their loot. I, on the other hand, can't shake the feeling that something just isn't right. Since then, I have discovered four different stashes of Easter gifts that were supposed to make it into Norah and Clayton's baskets.
Mom brain for the win!
We had a fantastic neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt that Norah LOVED. I can't express how much we love our new house/neighborhood situation.

Last night Norah slept in a big girl bed for the first time and it was amazing! She kept saying, "I'm so so excited for my new bed!" And she stayed in there all night, and napped without a fight today. Now I really need to finish the quilt for her bed.

Remember last week when I tried to start a "thing" where I post my weekly Instagram pictures every Friday? Well, the next Friday came and went and I forgot, so here it is Sunday and I'm going to post them on my blog today. Because it's my blog and I can do what I want. I can also eat dessert before dinner if I want because I'm an adult ... I just can't let Norah catch me because I need to be a good example and all that jazz. Which is why I am sad my new pantry doesn't have a light because it makes it so much trickier to sneak the candy I hide on the top shelf. But, my train has been derailed ... Here's our week in Instagrams.
