I’ve been spending more and more time with babies and children of all ages lately. I like to think of it as “practice”!
John and I look forward to having a family one day and building a beautiful legacy. I’d like 4 children - but John says we’ll talk after 2! Why does my hubby think he gets to decide? I’m attracting my desire. I will be such an amazing mother to his gorgeous kids – that he won’t think twice about my granting me my wish.
I watched my friends kids for a bit this week and discovered that I have to break into my inner child. We were playing school and Griffin informed me that we were coloring pictures. My direction was that it had to be artistic. So I broke out of my comfort zone of the trusty landscape picture or even barn yard scene.
Emma questioned me multiple times, “What is that?”
“It’s artistic!” That answer didn’t satisfy the six year old.
“Where is the grass?” Ha ha…I gave up.
I was proud of my quick effort.
I realized that I’m a very competitive natured person. We played hide & seek. The kids would count and then yell “Are you ready?” What? If I say anything they’ll follow my voice. Then we played this cool 3D Snakes and Ladders game. The six and eight year old minds weren’t as focused at getting around the board as mine was! Ha ha – I will practice taking a chill pill.
WHY do I live a full life and have lots of unique business adventures on the go? When we start a family, I want to stay home with my kids. I want to continue being a career woman with a business portfolio that fits into my families life. The Beazley’s have big dreams – but we know that if you can believe it, you can achieve it!
Luckily I heard about an awesome tool a couple years ago - Mom’s On the Phone, created by Patrice Matteson. It will help me come up with creative activities to keep my potentially (if they’re anything like John & I) curious children busy!
In the meantime, I’ll keep practicing as a babysitter to our nephew, niece, cousins, and friends kids.
