Dei Fratelli Segment on WTOL is this week’s ‘Take Me Back Tuesday’

3 littles, barely any sleep, and I said yes to a segment on the morning show, what was I thinking? Thankfully I had purchased and prepped all the necessary items the night before and sat out my clothes as well as my “assistant’s” clothes. That morning we were running behind per usual, my hair wasn’t cooperating, stupid humidity, and I was praying all the way to the station that God would help me find the words…some mornings the “mom brain” hits hard, am I right ladies? Too bad guests can’t get a prompter.

This is long overdue

I’ve been meaning to write this for some time now. It’s long overdue. But every time I escape into the computer room, open my laptop, my fingers barely graze the keys, and a silent alarm must sound altering the children that I’m about to give something else my undivided attention. For they all seemed to beacon before I can even type a word, “Mom, I need help submitting….”, “Mom, my screen froze!”, “Mom, I can’t type on my work in Google Docs”. It’s a miracle they aren’t banging on the door right now. I am currently hiding out in the bathroom, on the floor, with my laptop, fan on, so hopefully I’ll have a few uninterrupted minutes…I took this idea from the “Dad Handbook” ;), lol! So needless to say, this letter has been on my heart for some time, and it embarrasses me that I haven’t sent this sooner. I don’t know if you know this or not, but you’re such an important and significant part of my life. They say that life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away and though, an eloquent idea, I’d add that it isn’t just the big moment in life that matters, but the everyday that embrace life’s imperfections.  Looking back on my lifetime thus far most of my life’s imperfections, serious contemplations, and happy memories either took place with you or you helped me get through them, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t take this time to express just how much you’ve played a role in those moments.
