In my life right now there seems to be lots of highs and lows.

One day I'll be on top of the world. The house is clean, the kids have clean clothes, I made dinner, practiced Spanish and went running.

 And then the next day it seems like nothing is going right; like today. We were late for Graham's school, I ate way too many double chocolate banana bread muffins/cupcakes, I drank waaaay too much coca lite, no one took a nap, Sadie took off her diaper and pooped in her bed, the house looks like a tornado hit it, and everyone is soooo cranky from not taking a nap. And I feel like I got nothing done.
No naps equals no studying Spanish. And of course I didn't do the dishes.

I need to be better about remembering and celebrating the good days and laughing about the bad ones.


-Amron got his test score back and aced it!
-Graham made a new friend at school!
-Amron and I started training for a half marathon!
-A few people at church said my Spanish was getting better!


-I spray painted a wall in the kids room and the whole room was covered in a black dust. had to wash everything in the room.
-Graham said he didn't want to go to school because he hates singing time.
-Mexico is kind of crazy. Lots of things to laugh about.
-we are poor.

I was so, so upset about the spray paint. It was such a mess. It was all over me, the kids, and it stained their beds. But yesterday Graham said, "I want to paint our room again that was so cool." So at least he got a good memory out of it.

Hehehe :)) #parenting #family #positive

Anyways, I'm going to try and be happier. I've got the cutest kids, the best husband in the world, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are really living our dreams. I just need to stay focused on what matters most and stop looking at all those cute houses on pinterset!


  1. I love your blog and your posts! You always give me good insight and it's SOOO nice to know I'm not the only one struggling to have a Pinterest worthy house/routine! I especially needed to read this one today, so thanks! :)

  2. Brooke,
    I love your honesty! We all have those days. I admire what you do with three kids, and they are all so little. You are an awesome mom. Don't you ever forget it.

    Look up kid president pep talk on you tube. I think you need it today, and if you have already seen it, watch it again. It always makes me feel good.
