"Are you having fun being a kid today?" -- this is what I'm trying to ask her daily, as a mental cue to myself to relax (for goodness' sake!) and stop expecting perfection. I was looking over my "No More Perfect Moms" notes again today and found this gem of conviction: "We can't stand the thought of them (our kids) being less than perfect. We jump into the picture to smooth their rough corners because we fear that anything less than perfect reflects poorly on us... Don't make it about you." Yes. That lesson is for me. // Hadley instagrams from the past couple weeks

I love this. And on a rather unrelated note, my little guy has always been super tiny and has never been a good sleeper, waking up 3-4 times per night even at one year old. After reading your post about giving your littles probiotics, I've been feeding him yogurt every day (not quite the same thing, I know, but up the same alley). And guess what! HE'S SLEEPING! And gaining weight. So thanks. Thanks a million. :)

I love these photos and that question! I need to keep it in mind for when I'm teaching my preschoolers! Thanks, Summer!



about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
