{Day 6...what do I do?}

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Hmm, first thought that comes to my head is what do I not do? Ha!  Here's a typical day in my life. 

  • Wake up, get myself ready. Make lunches. Take all of our bags out to the car and start it. Wake up Mason. Take him to potty. Sometimes he goes in the bathroom and sometimes he wants to pee off the porch {we live in the country}. Then I get him ready for school. 
  • Load him up in the car and drive him 15 minutes down the road to his school. 
  • Put all his stuff in his cubby and say my goodbyes. Sometimes it goes really well and he tells me to "leave Mama" and sometimes he cries for me. It's a tug-o-war with the heart, either way.
  • Drive another 35-40 minutes {depending on traffic} to my office in Dallas. 
  • Work 8-4 - answer phones and emails, place orders, invoice clients, etc.
  • Head back to Mason's school to pick him up {highlight of my day}.
  • Drive home.
  • Unload car and our bags. Start dinner {sometimes}, a load of laundry and pick up things that need to be put away. Then Mason and I will usually play outside until Daddy gets home. He plays in his sandbox, or rides his Jeep or his bike. Or we go visit Jake. I take a lot of pictures and blow up everyone's Instagram feed!! :)
  • 6:00pm Daddy gets home. Mason runs to greet him every time. Then we either finish dinner, or decide on dinner. Eat. Hangout. Bathe. And go to bed.
  • Start over again.

All the above is just a routine. 

What do I really do?

I love. I nurture. I support. I praise. I encourage. I fill up with pride every single day. I love with every fiber of my being. And I thank God over and over again for all of the blessings in my life. I thank him for choosing me to be Mason's Mama and Nathan's wife. I couldn't ask for more.
