(M) Me Time

One thing I’ve learned over the last few months is how important it is for me to take time to myself. I don’t necessarily mean an entire weekend of time away, but just something for me. Maybe the includes going to the gym, grocery shopping, taking a walk… Just getting away for a bit.

(L) Love You Forever

I wanted to do two L posts. 😀 I’m silly, behind, AND an over-achiever!

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch is the first book from my childhood that had a seriously profound impact on me. There’s something musical about the word crafting throughout, along with simple, yet effective, illustrations that pulled me in. Every single time. I remember the joy through read alouds and then a deep sadness at the end of the story. I think this story actually played a role in why I am who I am.

It’s funny that something seemingly so small can affect us at such a young age. Books change us, regardless of our years here.

What book do you remember the most from childhood? Why?


(L) Little Things

Little feet
Tiny toes
Squishy cheeks
Stylish clothes

Funny socks
Up to your knees
Cooing loudly
Kicking your feet

A breath away
From where you are
We love you so
Our shining star

(Written by me. Belongs to me. Give me credit if you use this for anything, please. Definitely not my best work, just spur of the moment.)

Good ol’ Bye Bye Birdie! I love that there are musicals like this that just capture how timeless certain things are.

I ever thought I’d be one of those adults talking about how disrespectful kids are, or that their noses are always in their phones. But it’s happened. I’ve officially become an adult. Heck, most adults are just as rude.

Where do you think the kids get it from?

(A just-for-fun post brought to you by the letter K.)

I’m baaaaaack!!!

I am officially done with projects and schoolwork for the rest of the summer, unless I decide to take some courses outside of my graduate program of human resources management. We’ll see!!

Anywho, looking forward to catching up on A to Z today and through the weekend!  Prepare for some awesome, relevant posts over here at Steps In Mommyhood! Y’all still with me?

And now, for your viewing pleasure… Here’s my cat (Winky) in a box.


A to Z Update

Just a quick note – I am finishing up a large project for one of my grad school classes, so my A to Z posts for these next couple of days may be a little wonky. Rest assured, they will be back in full force!! Until then, please share one of your favorite memories from childhood with me in the comments below!
