🎉🎂My sweetest little birthday girl🎂🎉 As I sit here drinking my coffee waiting for you to wake up, I’m having mixed emotions today as you become a 2 year old.. I am excited because I see how much you’ve grown, and I know so many magical moments await you. I can’t wait to have conversations with you about life and answer all of your questions about Jesus, makeup, careers, clothes, and anything else you want to know. But, I must admit, I am kind of sad. You are growing up so fast and there are no longer any babies in my home. The baby days with you are gone.. Over the last two years, you’ve amazed us in so many ways. You came out with the sweetest spirit but an attitude that told us you were strong-minded and independent. You are a force to be reckoned with that’s for sure, and I just love that about you. You look just like your daddy but have your mamas heart and I know your strength and persistence will serve you well in life. Being compassionate and tough will make you such a remarkable woman.

If the first two years of your life serve as any indication of what the next two will bring, I have to just push my little bit of sadness aside and embrace the part of me that’s thrilled about your growth. As much as I may wish for my baby to remain a baby, I know you can’t be forever (you’ll always be my baby though). You have to learn and explore. You need to grow and figure out who you want to be and what you want from life.

On this special day, I hope you are able to feel every ounce of love that surrounds you. I hope you know that you were born into a family that wants the very best for you. I hope that your childhood shapes up to be much of what mine was, and also a lot of what mine was not. I know life won’t always be perfect because it just doesn’t work that way. But I do know that life will always have magic in it if you simply train your eyes to see it. I hope your daddy and I do a great job teaching you how to train your sparkly blue eyes.

Loving you always and forever my sissy girl,
xoxo- mommy 💕🍰🍭🍦👩👧 #twoyearsold #birthdaygirl #mommysgirl #december10th #whydotheyhavetogrowupsofast #redheadtoddler

Wednesday have become beach morning with the dogs. It really got me this morning how much I miss not having any kids at home. I really miss the little conversations but at least the dogs come when they are told.

So today Abigail (11) came home and asked me to download ‘Musical.ly’ to her phone as apparently a lot of her School friends have it and share their videos between themselves. When I’d regained my composure and googled exactly what Musical.ly is (obv not as ‘with it’ as I thought I was 😂) I downloaded the app, changed all the settings to private and let her have a play. It seems creative and like good fun, you record a dance to a song of your choice (most of which I had never heard of 🙄), edit it, play it back and share it with people you are connected with (only those you invite when set to private apparently)
Abi has spent an hour on cloud nine ❤️
HOWEVER.........
With a bit of further research and some opinions from other parents I am considering deleting it already. Some say their children were contacted by strangers in spite of maximum privacy settings. Others said inappropriate adverts were displayed (one being a naked old lady! 😂) One parent even said a child at her daughters School was groomed by an online predator and the police had to be involved.
WHAT am I hearing?! Is this really the world we live in?! A world where our children are growing in a digital age and we can’t even protect them by maxing their privacy settings on a platform aimed specifically at young people and teenagers?! How can such apps be so readily available (recommended minimum age for this particular network is 13 I believe) yet be so difficult for a parent to control effectively?!
Abigail is sensible and aware for her age and will, I’m sure, be understanding if Musical.ly goes directly to the bin in the cloud. I will, however, spend a little time looking into it with her and researching it for myself. After all how the hell can we moderate this world and teach our children to stay safe if we don’t understand it ourselves? ✌️❤️

When you become a Mom you don’t always think about your kids growing up, and having their own life. Reality is they will grow up in the blink of an eye right in front of you when you’re not even thinking about it. I miss them like crazy everyday, but I’m so proud of them for going out in the world and making a difference all on their own. They are both stubborn, and extremely hard headed, but I wouldn’t change them for anything. @megamind_welton @stoneface92 I love you to the moon and back! #momlife #whydotheyhavetogrowupsofast #kidsfirst #family #proudmom

#throwbackthursday is this one to early? I'm a turkey farmer, it's Christmas in my house for most of the year 😂. I think it's far enough into November so it's now socially acceptable to talk Christmas publicly 😂😂😂. How they have all grown in a year. They are all so much bigger, look at Baby Dolly, she walks now and shouts 🙈 oh how she shouts. I would love to go back to this time last year and just have that magical time back where we met Santa and more importanly, every bugger was happy for five minutes, all right three minutes.

Happy Thursday everyone, nearly there.
