This past weekend was set aside for baseball for Daylan in Greenfield. Skylar and I stayed home on Saturday because I thought it might be muddy or rainy. We did make it on Sunday for both games. It always amazes me how well Skylar does at the baseball games. He loves watching "DAyyyyyy" as Skylar says.
I am trying to make sure that both Daylan and Skylar know that they have my love an attention at all times-even when I am not there. It sometimes feels like we have to have 1 parent per boy to get anything done, but we make it work. I had a list of what I was going to get done yesterday!!!! What felt awesome was to throw out all to do's (very unlike me) and go with the flow with my family. I always joke that I need a tattoo on my arm that says "Be there". I want to be in the moment when with my boys and not worried about unimportant activities or to-do's!!

I am living everyday life with my boys. As a normal morning at the Nanny Household turns into a "get up we are running late, oh crap we forgot to pack your lunch, Skylar let mommy put on your shoes, oh I am almost out of gas -where's the bank card?? kind of blessed morning"!!
As I am driving the boys to school and daycare I realize that maybe I should consider letting Jesus take the wheel as Carrie Underwood so graciously reminded me in song today!! So I turned to Daylan and told him at anytime he is stressed today (I know 10 year olds with stress??) turn his hands to God and give his challenges to him to help guide and lead him. Daylan being Daylan looks at me and raises his eyebrows to only turn his hand in a cupped manner as to only appease me!!
Oh well, at least that was our going to school message today. I am thinking we need not to just talk the talk but walk the walk when it comes to God.

I am inspired to start this blog by a new friend who is 18 months old, Dylan.
His mom, Emily, is incrediable and does a great job sharing about Dylan, so needless to say I am wanting to start a blog about my wild 2 blessings, Daylan (10) and Skylar (20 months)!!
