Boring Bed Pictures

I'm sure there are much more exciting things to post about. Like the weather or a fun new recipe. Or ....... I don't know, I'm not very exciting! I had to post these pictures, because they make me smile. Sometimes it's easy for me to get wrapped up in the craziness of having four young children. We mothers need to relax, take a breath of fresh air and rediscover simplicity. Right? Don't listen to me I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Having four kids so close in age has taught me................ that I don't know anything and I feel like I'm always flying by the seat of my pants!

Laney's first week of school has been emotional and chaotic for me. All the girls have been getting up early for unknown reasons. My husband has had a very busy/hectic week at work. The plus side, I have three kids napping right now! I have a moment to myself to look at pictures I have taken this week. Time to relax and enjoy the simple and beautiful moments of my girls that I can sometimes capture on camera.
Yes I realize there is neither a red head or a brunette in this picture. I like taking pictures, it relaxes me. This is my blog and I say you have to look at my boring bed pictures! (That is Savanna's new bed that Josh made, by the way. I got that quilt on clearance at Pottery Barn Teen last year. The next best thing to homemade.)

This is Addy Mae's bed. We moved her out of her crib/toddler bed into this more functional toddler bed.

This quilt was handmade by Grandma Sherry. And the bunny was hand knitted by Addy's Great Great Aunt Mary Ann. (We can take a Great out if it makes you feel better.) Actually, I think it's a bear but the girls call it a bunny. Thank you for making these treasures for my kids. I like putting real things made by hand and love, in my girls rooms.

Take a little time to enjoy the simple things in your life. It just might make your busy/crazy day go a little smoother.

Thank you Michele. As you know, this has been one of those weeks where I need to be reminded to take a deep breath of fresh air. This job isn't easy but there is enjoyment. Thank you for this post and your boring bed pictures. I completely understand the pictures. I have boring ones too that someone else might not get.

Great post! I'm so glad that Laney is enjoying school. It sounds like you've been getting quite the workout each day. Maybe we can meet up sometime and let all the little ones play one morning, get them good and worn out for an afternoon nap? Talk to you soon.
