my morning

So far today was been one of those stay home and get things taken care of kind of days. Graham has really needed one of these days. Yesterday he tried to pull Sadie's earrings out, kicked Max in the eye and poked and pinched both of them a ton.  
We woke up, fed the babies, watched The Backyardagains, ate blueberries, fed the babies, read books on the kitchen floor, Graham on my lab and the babies in their bouncers (the kitchen floor is the cleanest in the house right now. weird), read scriptures, ate lunch, cleaned up toys, fed the babies, baths (!), more stories and snuggling and now: NAP TIME! 

The best part of the morning was when Graham said he wanted to help Said say the prayer. So he folded her arms (really tight) then said, "Heavenly Father loves us Sadie." Then poked her eye. 

He's a sweetheart. 

This quote really stood out to me today:

"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." 
 Marjorie Pay Hinckley

That was for me. 


  1. Oh I needed that quote today! I'm so glad you shared!

  2. Love that quote. It's true being a stay at home mom is the hardest because we feel like we need to prove ourselves elsewhere, when really just spending time with your babies is enough! You're awesome Brooke.

  3. That quote is amazing!! You're such a good momma.
