Daily Diary: That Messy Boy Face

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 10.18.42 PM

My husband sent this picture to me. He took it right after he fed my boy some breakfast. Obviously, he had some yogurt. I’m not so sure any of it made it into Caleb’s mouth LOL!!

Every single time I feed my son, I register how different I am today as a mom compared to when I first became one in 2005. In 2005, I would never let something like this happen. It all had to be perfect. Natalie couldn’t get messy. I had to get everything just right. But with Caleb, it’s just about being in the moment.

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and be a first time mom with my third time mom mindset. Does that make sense?

Of course, there are no do-overs. But it is a thought I have every now and again. Life can get messy – and that’s ok.
