Happy 10th Birthday

From Instagram: Oh, you know, just doing her schoolwork with a quill pen. {Confession: Inside I’m screaming, “The mess!”}

This week we get a brief reprieve from our birthday bonanza, but next week we make up for it with our oldest’s 10th birthday and our 12th anniversary. My parents will be in town for a few days, so my mom and I are taking Peyton out to a special dinner with her two best friends (I think we’ll let them sit at a table by themselves!) and then Sean and I will sneak out the next night for a long overdue date night. Can’t wait!

Having a 10 year old is definitely a whole new experience in the parenting department. I love being a mom of littles, and I was always terrified of adolescence — not just for the obvious reasons but because I just didn’t think I’d enjoy it. As it turns out, this is a really fun stage (when we’re not experiencing a roller coaster of emotions or preteen attitudes, at least), and I’m enjoying connecting with my older girls on a different level!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading and what I’m pinning to see the other posts that make me stop and think (or, you know, drool…). You’ll find new posts all week long!
