Family time

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

My mom and little sister arrived on Valentines Day last week and got to spend Bronson's birthday with us and check out our new space.

It was so nice to have them stay with us! My mom snuggled the girls every morning and night and brought them birdhouses and little ceramic kitties to paint. I wish they could stay forever.

Something about becoming a parent makes you love your parents 10 fold I feel like. Its almost like you need them more than you ever did as a child.... and all of a sudden you realize how much they have done for you throughout your whole life.

And no matter what, whenever my mom is around I immediately turn back into her little kid. I want her to be in charge and all of a sudden I don't feel like doing chores or being productive. I revert back to being a 14 year old.... Swear.

Does this ever go away?

It's OK if it doesn't.

So, we had to drop them off this morning at the airport and it just feels a little sad and empty in our house today.

But,luckily for us, we get a brand new shipment of happiness coming in tonight.

My mom/dad-in-law and brothers are arriving tonight and staying for another week!

We can't wait... And I think I've discovered that the best part of moving away is all the visitors we get to have now.

And if you want to keep up with what we've been up to, check out my vine. You can find me by my name, Weslie Christensen---this might be the greatest app that has ever been invented...just sayin!


  1. I feel the exact same way! Since I've been pregnant it has been harder to live far away from my mom, and I've lived this far away from her for five years. I feel like I need her more than ever! It does make the visits so sweet though.

  2. your mom looks like a teenager herself! great genes :)

  3. Funny that you write this right now....I just spent a week at my moms and I totally reverted back to my teenage years. My mom still does everything for me when we are around, and I feel like such a brat. When I got back home I was so overwhelmed by the cooking and cleaning and actually having to watch my own kids that I layed in my bed and cried. haha! I hate growing up!!!

  4. newest follower... I follow you on instagram and decided to check out your blog.
