Nature Walk

KK and I had a great day yesterday. I started off the day by trying to tame KK's room by going through his toys. He has 2 overflowing bins FULL of toys and then there are always lots of toys scattered around the house. I told KK that we had a big job to do and we were going to make 3 piles: Garbage, Keep, and Garage Sale. I told him that at the Garage sale other kids would take his toys then give us money...with that money we can buy new toys. He was really excited. I thought we were going to have a total meltdown. But he was really excited and helped a lot until we uncovered some toys he hasn't seen or played with in a while and he just played. But after going through 1 bin I needed a break and get away from the mess.

To get away, KK and I decided to go on a walk behind our house. It was such a beautiful day. There is a nature walk behind us and a park and we do not use it as much as we should. KK and I had such a fun time.

Chasing the Geegles and trying to catch one

We were so close the parents started hissing at us

Posing under a tree

Found some rocks he wanted to bring home

I'm in LOVE!

After our walk we returned to the toy mess and I ended up throwing away 2 garbage bags full of toys, 3 garbages bags full of toys for the garage sale, and we're still left with 2 bins full of toys! I feel that my efforts did nothing. But I am so glad that KK and I had our special mom and son time. I hope that KK always knows how much love I have for him. Sometimes, recently, I've been feeling so guilty because I'm trying to do my best to juggle work, school, being a wife, and trying to blend a family as seamless as possible. I have the best son in the whole world. I know it's hard for him to be at my parents sometimes while I'm at school. I know he's doing the best he can and I think I need to be a little bit more understanding. I've been very short tempered because there's a lot that has been going on and my stress level is very high. But I really love KK and I love the special things we do together. He is the best thing that has happened to me!
