My babies are my world

My best friend Erika and I have been each other's journal for the past two years, and recently Erika stumbled on a blog called "The Orange Rhino Challenge" We gobbled up that blog, and decided to call ourselves out. Put us on the spot in front of each other, the blog world, and our friends and family. Challenging ourselves to go 365 days with no yelling (I can feel the tickle in my throat just thinking about it).
The bottom line? I love my babies. So much that it's a literal ache in my chest. I just can't contain all the love I have for each of them. When they grow up, that's what I want them to remember. The showering of love and affection. Not yelling, time outs and mommy just really needs a freaking break!
So this blog will be an account of Erika and I's journey. Raw and honest. A lot of the days won't be pretty. We'll hold ourselves accountable for posting on the days we slip up and yell. Hopefully those days will taper off quickly and we'll find a new, beautiful rhythm of handling the stresses of life with kids. By the end of 365 days, I hope and pray that this blog will be nothing but happy, yell-free posts!
