I've never been one of those uptight mom types... it must come with the third baby syndrome.. you know, the one where your so worn out and drained from the other two that the last one gets away with murder!!







 I remember the first baby... Every move is planned. Every moment is special and photographed perfectly. The milestone are celebrated. The eating and sleeping schedules are on point, you may even be lucky enough to find yourself sleeping through the night,

Let's fast forward to the last baby... Mom's is still trying to keep up with number two!! No longer am I blending every baby meal to perfection, washing and massaging at bath time and marking everything on my calendar. Now, I'm lucky if I remember what day it is and get away from those little fingers long enough to brush my teeth and wash my face for the day! Everything is far from perfect and at some point, if you want to remain sane, you have to let go of what your idea of perfection is.





 That is one of the most valuable things I learned from having three boys. The first baby, you want everything to be perfect, just how you envisioned. Then second, you compare and contrast everything from if you love them enough, to how different their personalities are. The third teaches you a very valuable lesson; that everyone has their own personality and their own way of being. So let them BE LITTLE. That was the number one lesson I have learned as a mother of  three. I learned that the best thin I could do was to relax and enjoy the moments before they are gone. There's plenty of time for cleaning their rooms and doing things the 'way that they're supposed to.' So now, I enjoy the little moments. Because they are everything. And they are short lived.



My favorite things about Sky are the way he walks with his chunky little legs. The way he explores and makes the funniest expression as he checks out the world and discovers how things work! When I stop being a worry wart long enough to enjoy the moment, that's when the gratitude comes in. I let go of everything that is 'supposed' to be, and I enjoy what IS, before it's gone. Just like that.

 I love the curiosity as he splashes water and pulls his red wagon as hard as he can with his little chubby arms. His sweet curls as he shakes his head at me and runs off to play in the dirt. And that mean mug. Oh he kills me with his expressions.



It's so important that they have the space and freedom to explore their world, express themselves and just BE LITTLE. We all know that it goes to fast, so why waste it worrying about a constant mess that we cannot help.

One thing we can help, is how we clean up the mess... I have LOVED Huggies One And Done Wipes since Jace was born...it is my absolute favorite smelling wipes EVER. You can find these Huggies Snug and Dry and my favorite Huggies One and Done at your local Family Dollar and you can use this Samrt coupon to save ALL YEAR ALONG!!
