On Sunday we go to church.
We do our best to take a deep breath,
to just BE with each other,
to reflect on the week and on how we can be better.
Sunday’s are special.
Sunday’s are sacred.
But when our little bundle of energy was born,
keeping Sunday sacred became a bit more challenging.
Things like back arching,
loud singing of the Elmo’s World theme song {la la la la, Elmo’s World},
cheerio mashing {and throwing},
and scaling up the backs of the wooden church pews
make it difficult for Ben and I to find
that sense of Peace we once knew so well.
So I have learned,
the only way to remotely contain my little gremlin
is to be PREPARED.
And my new organization utility tote from Thirty One
is like the Swiss Army knife
of Sunday with a toddler preparation.


{in LMM colors, of course}
This bad boy has a pocket for every stage of toddler meltdown.
There’s the sippy cup pocket, the bottle pocket, the game pocket, the book pocket the toy pocket.
Yep, I told you, a pocket for everything.
This was my life before, chaos:
And this is my life now, organized:
Can you here me sighing
through the computer screen?
Because that’s how organization makes me feel,
ahhhhhh {said in a slow motion whisper}.
{bottle and sippy}

{puzzle pieces, diapers, baby lovey}


Baby W’s favorite books.

Hehe, this book makes me laugh.
Wishful thinking, huh.

I feel like I have been living under a rock
because I hadn’t heard of Thirty One
until Kim Gibbs contacted me with this opportunity.
