Babies for Trump!

Well, if you follow politics at all, you most likely saw the picture over the weekend of Donald Trump holding two babies. Well, the little girl in the photo is mine and the little boy is my sister’s. At this point it’s totally viral:


I was thrilled to see Trump, and if you’ve followed this blog, you know I totally support him. I have been amused watching which media outlets use which pictures. Of course liberal and main stream sources are using the pictures of the babies crying. To set the record straight, they were not crying when Mr. Trump picked up our children with such natural grandfatherly care:

It was when the crowd cheered with excitement that they got scared and naturally wanted their momma’s. Totally normal people. Trump does not make babies cry. Apparently now, your every day average American citizens have to come forward to set the record straight….because by God, the Main Stream Media won’t do it.

You want to hear what does make a baby cry- is saying they have no constitutional rights until they are born. That’ll make a baby cry….

So….for the record….

Sloooooooow down

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays coming to a close, I find myself catching my breath. I often feel like once Halloween hits, I blink and it’s the day after Christmas! It goes too fast! I also really think January is the loooooongest month of the year too! 😉

I haven’t had one of those slow, long days in a while. The best moment of today happened just a short time ago.

Sometimes you get those moments, when your heart just melts as a mom. My daughter will be 16 months on Wednesday, and she is all play. I get so amused that toddlers are so busy! You’d think they were doing all the holiday shopping! They constantly seem like they have somewhere to be! My little gal, is always on the go, mimicking, laughing, stumbling and of course the fluctuation of emotions are insane!

 I almost always lay her down to sleep. She moves so much, even when I read to her, always rushing to turn the page on the book, swaying back and forth, amused by the characters on the pages…giggling and laughing. After reading her a book, we shut off the lamp and I usually lay her down, but tonight she just snuggled up to my chest and laid her head down beneath my chin. No movement, no squirming….just laid in my arms as I hummed her bedtime song, as she fell asleep in my arms. I swear my heart swelled out of my chest, it’s those moments that we parents live for. I know it sounds simple, even possibly ridiculous but not for me…so many of the perfect most precious moments are in the little things.

 It was in this moment I was reminded to slow down, take it in…it goes by fast. It’s easy to get going so fast that the little things get lost in the big things.

 At some point during the often hurriedness of motherhood, the little things, grow up. The sticky hands, the drooly mouths, the dirty diapers, the crawling, the teething, the gummy smiles, the first potty in the toilet, the first steps….they grow up.

 Tonight’s moment just reminded me to take it in. The exhaustion and all, because I have a feeling I am going to miss it all when it grows up.
