The Sunday Brief (on a Monday)

September 5, 2016

Happy Labor Day, friends! It’s been a whirlwind of a summer for us (for those of you who are new here, we kicked off summer with the birth of our 4th son). My house was (is) crazytown as the boys adjusted to life with a new sibling and I figured how to keep the peace, keep up with the laundry, keep this blog alive, and keep up with the demands of life with 4 boys. But really, though, we had so much fun this summer. We did a little camp, we did a little traveling, we did a lot of just hanging out together. And as the kids head back to school and our lives shift once again, I’ve carved out some time to focus on this blog. That whole “squeeze it in when you can” was just not working for me. For us, I should say. And that being said, I have some fun stuff coming your way – and I’m excited to getting back to blogging about parenting as well. I need peace and quiet to form coherent sentences about momming, and this summer, that time was just non-existent. But fear not, my boys gave me a lot of content so that come fall, I will actually have some time to reflect and write about it all. I hope you all made wonderful memories this summer and are geared up for the new season. May your football team be better than the Eagles (don’t tell my boys I said that) and your pumpkin spice lattes be plentiful. And now, The Sunday Brief…..on a Monday.

Ok, that’s all I’ve got. Sending all you mama’s who are sending little ones off to school for the first time a virtual hug and/or clinking my mimosa glass to meet yours. It’s the end of an era, but trust me, it gets even more fun as they get older.
