This year I feel like I have been spending a lot more time reflecting on life itself and finding my center. Life sometimes gets so busy, I find I’m stretching myself too thin and not enjoying everything as much as I should. Often, it is my kids that remind me to just have fun or that the little things don’t really matter.

10 Things I've Learned (thus far) in My Thirties (& as a Mom)

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Holstein Housewares. I received product samples to facilitate this post well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

When I start thinking about holidays, my minds ventures to fun dessert ideas. There’s just something about spending the afternoon in the kitchen with the kids. Laughing and enjoying time together baking & decorating cakes, cupcakes and treats and getting to enjoy them together afterwards.

With summer in full swing and my oldest son home every day, I do what I can to fit learning into our activities. Pulling out an activity book sometimes works, but isn’t as fun as hands-on learning and definitely doesn’t hold their attention as long. Taking learning activities to the backyard makes for hours of fun.

As part of our family, Ellie is always getting attention from someone. The minute I sit down, she jumps in my lap. When we go for walks, she is right there with us. When she wants to play, she drops toys at our feet to let us know and the fun begins.

If you ask my kids, they will tell you that snack time doesn’t come often enough in our house. They are rapidly growing boys that seem to be hungry every waking moment. We will be in the middle of an activity, out on a walk, or just finishing up a project, when hunger strikes them out of nowhere like they haven’t eaten in days.

Last week I sat down with the boys and we started brainstorming things for our summer bucket list. My five-year-old wrote out a list, including activities his brothers suggested. Most of the activities they agreed on involved water play and spending hours outdoors.

Fun water balloon games for the whole family! Great for backyard parties! #BestSummerEver
