shannondew How is it that if I put all of this on a plate she won't touch it. But, put it in a muffin tin pan and she eats every bite. 19h

shannondew Most accurate representation of our first egg hunt of the season. So windy I'm surprised they were able to paint faces since hair was blown everywhere. And so cold that hot chocolate couldn't even warm us. Buurrrrrrr we're cold #easterdews 2d

shannondew True life: I workout at home. That spot on the floor by my weights and the treadmill are the only areas not covered in toys. It's not ideal working out in the playroom and it's not fun waking up at 5:30 to do so. BUT I didn't hit snooze, I cleared a spot on the floor, I drank my coffee while leisurely walking for my warm up and then I killed my legs and glutes while watching last nights Greys. It's not the perfect setting but it gets the job done! #leanmeanclean15 4d

shannondew Oh sweet james weston. You woke up at 8:15 and at 9:30, after taking sissy to school, you're asleep again? With a snack cup, of course. This will make for an interesting day... 6d

shannondew Today has been super emotional. Cinderella and I went to the elementary school for kindergarten registration today and she also had her assessment done. I'm normally not an overly emotional or sentimental person so I was not expecting to feel like bursting out into the big fat ugly cry in the middle of the hallway. I stood there while my baby girl was just steps away thinking, "how did we get here?" I mean, wasn't she just born?! And then they took her for the assessment and I felt a little piece of my heart break. It actually ached. There she goes. After all was said and done we went to the bathroom before we left and a "big girl" came in and smiled at us. As I watched my baby girl barely reach the sink to wash her hands I prayed that these big girls would be kind to her. That they will help her if she needs it. And I kept thinking of Cinderella, have courage and be kind. My baby girl was so brave today. She's excited for kindergarten and a new school and a fun classroom. I didn't let her know but I did not feel courage a today. I felt extremely bittersweet. I know this is what's best for her but if registration was this hard the 1st day is going to be one of the roughest days of my life. And then it'll be James's turn and it'll start all over. #instanovel 7d
  •   takeoffwithkatie I have to go register Ellie this week. I started crying when I called the Doctor's office to get her immunization records and then I started crying telling josh about it later. I never in a million years thought I would be "that mom" that cries about kindergarten. But it seems like such a BIG deal now. I mean, her teacher will see her more than I do every day. And this will happen for the next 13 years! For five years I've had her at home with me and many days I've complained about being "stuck" at home with the kids and only having boring things to do like going to the library or target...now she won't be there for mid-day walks in the quiet hours of target. And she won't be here when I'm making pbj's for lunch again. It will just be me and Foster... And then it will just be me. And that's scary! Because for 5 years that's been my life and my whole identity. I guess change is inevitable and we will get used to it. Pretty soon they will be bring home those handwritten sentences that say "my mom luvs t pik herr nos" 7d

shannondew It's been just over a year since I started really taking my fitness seriously. When I look at that before picture it's hard. I can't even remember looking like that yet it wasn't that long ago that THAT was my body. That was ME. It sure didn't feel like it though and I hated that feeling- not being comfortable in your own skin. I decided to change and never look back. That's not to say I'm perfect, I AM NOT. I eat pizza way more than is socially acceptable. I don't feel like working out some days. I can't stick to a Paleo diet. BUT I never give up. If I have a bad weekend I don't let that ruin me- I just make up for it on Monday. When I eat something "bad" I don't beat myself up over it. I love working out so that's never an issue for me, I get in a good 5-6 days a week. But diet, that's where I struggle. Do I let myself have indulgences here and there, I think that's healthy. But I don't let those indulgences turn into a lifestyle of bad eating. I'm nowhere near done with this journey, though. As "they" say, it's about progress, not perfection, and that's what I focus on. Being better than I was yesterday, moving forward and never looking back. #leanmeanclean15 1w

shannondew We saw Cinderella today and wow! I totally LOVE this movie! The message, have courage and be kind, was so sweet and empowering and encouraging. I am so glad movies like this exist for little girls these days and I hope kendall grows up watching it. She liked it today but got a little restless at the very end. Not bad for her first ever "real people" movie. And umm...that blue dress? I want to touch it!! 1w
  •   crystalseed We saw it yesterday and we loved it too! Chloe did so good, and she won't stop talking about it. 1w

shannondew Working out at a gym isn't an option for me. The closest one doesn't have childcare and the closest one that does isn't close at all. I love working out at home because most days I do it right when I wake up, still in my PJs while my babies are sleeping. I used to be self conscious at gyms, "am I doing this right?" "Is anyone watching me?" But at home I have none of that! And I have my workouts for life. I can do them as many times as I want for no extra cost. Want to find an at home workout that's perfect for you! Let me know! We have something to meet eveeyones fitness needs! 1w
