Body Love. Mom.

I started the day out as “super mom”, making pumpkin waffles for the kiddos. I turned into “hurry-up” mom as I tried to get my boys to two separate soccer games that started at the exact same time. After dashing between fields with the sky threatening to rain on us, we all met up with Grammie (my Mom) and took the children shopping. At the store I was “don’t touch that” mom, “control your body/voice” mom, and “no we are not buying that” mom through the whole store (but I did find new curtains for the living room). Afterwards we had a peaceful and wonderful lunch out. The boys were content to eat and tell us about their soccer games and other events from the week, so I got to be “mellow and cool” mom for a bit.

Body Love. Play.

 

Another beautiful day, another chance to play in the sunshine. I enjoy playing with my children (not constantly entertaining them but just playing). I started this morning’s playground trip with the idea of letting my two year old play while I read a bit. But after a page or two I just wanted to run with my youngster. We had some epic peek-a-boo sessions, sang a favorite song from our Music Together class, and even planted a “Wall-E plant” (a small oak sapling that someone left lying around, my two year old is really into Wall-E right now). We were having a great time.

Body Love? Feet.

Feet! These feet are mine. They are wonderful. God has created something truly amazing with our very unique feet. I am especially fond of my own feet. Today these feet have kicked a soccer ball, danced a few different times with kids, walked miles and miles (according to my pedometer), skipped with kids, dashed to meetings, controlled the clutch, brake and gas on our car, and were even kicked up on the couch for a little down time.  So when I have a day where I may not see my whole as purely wonderful, I can at least marvel at my feet.

Body Love? Eyes of Love.

 

Today marked the second day of school cancelations due to flooded roads. While I enjoyed having the extra helpers on my baking day, we have felt a little cooped up! After my two year old woke up from his nap I loaded up the double stroller and went to a local walking trail that happens to meander through a playground. The walk was just what I needed and the playground was just what my children needed. As we were out walking the sun peeked through the clouds! It felt so good. My six year old offered to take my picture today. After every single shot he grinned up at me and said oh this one is really good Mommy, you look very pretty.

Body Love? Braver.

 

In only a few days I have become braver. Bolder. Ready to dare. Of course with a small anonymous audience it is perhaps easier to be a little more risky. In between downpours there have been a few pockets of light rain and even just some moments of drizzling. I took advantage of the opportunity to get in a brisk workout and a few stretches. Honestly I don’t usually workout in a sport top, I am usually in a loose tee or a modest tank top, but like I said, I am a little braver.
