Obviously moving to Texas was a huge life change.
And being in a committed relationship for the first time in 7 years, well yeah, there’s that too.
The biggest change that has come out of the past year though has been gaining 2 munchkins that have become my world.
They bring joy and happiness that put me on cloud 9.
They bring frustration and exhaustion that makes me want to pull my hair out.
[And also pour a large glass of wine]
But they bring laughter and a love I didn’t know possible and now I can’t imagine my life without.
So. I figured it was time you met the 2 small humans that have stolen my heart just like their daddy did.
First there’s Kaitlyn [KMT].
This little girl has her daddy wrapped right around her finger, as she should.
10 years old and always has something to say.
She can get distracted easily, but she has more determination than most people twice her age.
She’s smart, so very smart. Just like her daddy.
Then we have Austin [AET].
6 years old with as much energy as a bouncy ball.
His one-liners will have you laughing for days and his laugh will bring overwhelming joy to your heart.
He’s got a bit of a naughty side these days [what 6 year old boy doesn’t], but he has a heart as big and as sweet as the ripest apple on the tree.
I could go on for days about these munchkins, but I’ll save more for another time.
I keep thinking that I can’t love people or places more than I already do. That I don’t have enough love to go around, but my heart keeps surprising me.
I don’t love certain things any less the more I love. I’m just finding more and more love than I ever knew to be possible.
These kids may not be my blood, but I would give anything and everything to never have to live my life without them.
Is that what being a parent is like?
If so, sign me up for #momlife.
I’m all in.
