Moms…you rock…

never forget it…

never…

This year I decided to say Thank you a whole lot more. I could complain about money, clients, films, boyfriends, girlfriends, family… and yet I am grateful..

Today I…

made a full breakfast for my kids, eggs (I tried to make them shaped like hearts…epic fail BTW), Toast and hashbrowns, packed them each a lunch with the 4 food groups…(Ok my son likes lunchables…so judge me…but I added fruit!!!)

Took them to school…on the way we created our day and did our list of what we’re grateful for
I MADE MY 12 YR OLD (13 IN 2 WEEKS) SMILE!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!
…really it happened…even with my “omg mom you’re always so positive and happy..it’s annoying!)

Got gas..because apparently my car needs it..

Came home did all the breakfast dishes, because when you make the four food groups for breakfast for your kids it requires dishes… and 3 loads of laundry to boot!

3 conferences calls before 11am

Made breakfast for me and my honey.

2 hours of footage watched and noted and sent to editors

Like no SH** 200 emails

posted blogs on websites

Picked up kids from school on early day schedule

went to the library for new books…

witnessed the pre-teen pizza place hang out – all while trying to be invisible, but yet at least I drive a cool car and can park in the parking lot, but look the other way….

Came home – gave 2 dogs baths, because Jeez they were stinky

another conference call

a FB live

A radio show

Made dinner from scratch (ok I did not make the pasta, that was boxed but the meat was organic!!!) Spaghetti with meat sauce marinara with cheesey bread…ok there were no greens, even tho I have salad ready in my garden..but hey they both had greens in their lunch, work with me… (oh btw I watered the garden and added compost made from my icky’s)

Managed another 30 emails, had to find another PA for my shoot

and did Gonoodle with my kids… yea google that and do it and then Judge…. “Obama Lama YES WE CAN!” and my favorite “Awkward Turtles Make Weird babies…” yes that is an actual line from one of the songs on gonoodle…

and am about to brush teeth, and snuggle…

and I loved every F’ing minute of it…

Thank you to my Family, Friends and especially my beloved for creating what I needed to do that….

Moms…you rock…

never forget it…

never…

Daughter still fully annoyed at my happy nature.. this will end I’m told

AND took down a fishfly…and convinced my kids they only live a day and it wasn’t the one named Miranda we didn’t kill yesterday…

Ok that may have been a lie… ugh!!

ok Final Update… got a hug from the pre-teen girl… whilst finishing her nails and generally rebelling against anything I’ve ever taught her… yea ok do this now…because you have until about 16 to figure this sh** out girlfriend..because it’s all moving faster now and you are a leader and have gifts and the world need you…but yea don’t tell her that…right now and yet somehow says.. I know you love me mom…ok Faklemphed!

The boy…we talked, he resisted and then melted and would have me sleep with him all night and yet knows my arms are always around him…

all is well and the bubble has been of love and safety and sweetness of dreams has been built, for tonight…..

I am so grateful for the gift of being able to create that…for this small family, when so many cannot.

I can never, for one moment take for granted what I have created…and neither shall you..

reach beyond….

You can…
