I am not normally that fun mom that loves messes or craziness in the kitchen.
I don't like PlayDoh. Not a huge fan of finger paints. Don't even get me started on the evil that is Moon Sand.
Baking alone while everyone sleeps is one of my favorite things. Just my boyfriend, Dave Matthews and I.
But once in a while you need to let that all go.
You need to let your kids go through all of your flour. All of your sugar. All of your eggs. Nearly all of your sprinkles. Three batches of frosting.
Because that is what happy childhood memories are made of.
She has talked me off of the "BOYS ARE SCARY" ledge one million times and it has been so fun being pregnant at the same time. I love that she is having a girl, because I love being the mama of girls. I love that she knew that we needed a special girly day before little boy madness enters our pink and sparkly home. I love that my little boy will be wearing her sweet boy's clothes.
She is the fun mom that makes messes with her son and sees the beauty in it.
Now I get it.
I so get it.
Thank you Drew for this day. My girls won't stop talking about it. I'm still finding sprinkles in crazy places and each time I do it makes me smile.
Visit Drew's blog to see the rest of the happy shoot.
Be sure to watch the slideshow because it is just happiness.
Janey- trying to sweep up the explosion of sprinkles? It just doesn't get better.
