Today’s a rare Monday post for the Well-Rounded Home, but it’s for a really great reason. This week, the MOB Society is hosting a virtual party for moms of boys so we can all share our blogs with each other. If you’re a mom of boys and have some extra minutes to spare, be sure to hop over to their site for a visit. And if you’re stopping by from MOB Society, how you doing?! For those new to the site, here’s a quick intro about…
Let me be honest, the homemaking thing isn’t easy. At least for me it isn’t. So much of what goes into making a home–things like patience, cooking, decorating, patience, etc.—just doesn’t come naturally to me. However, after the birth of my third child, it dawned on me that as a mom (and wife), I shouldn’t be flippant about my role as homemaker because the atmosphere that I help create here in our home will play a huge role in the lives of my kids. Now, I’m being more intentional about making a home and tracking my progress here on the pages of this blog.
I have two boys—ages four and two—both of whom are equally rambunctious, energetic, playful, smart, and cute, if I do say so myself.
They’re my warriors. And if I can borrow the words of one of my favorite Maze and Frankie Beverly songs, they bring me joy and pain–sometimes all within the same hour. But through it all, I have to say they make my heart glad. Here are a few things they’re into these days (in no particular order)…
- Swim classes
- Sword fighting, kung-fu fighting, kick fighting…basically anything involving play fighting.
- Avengers and Thundercats (thanks to my husband’s influence)
- Their Chuggington train set
- The Fort Worth Zoo
- Fruit snacks
- “W” Questions. Who is that? What is that? When are we going? Where are we going? Why are they doing that? The questions are non-stop. I’m amazed at their inquisitiveness; but at times, I’m just like enough already.
- Each other. I love how the boys are always playing together, giving each other hugs and looking out for each other.

I love having boys in the house, love my family, love God and love life itself. Being a wife and mom isn’t always easy (and working outside the home full-time throws in its own twist). It’s a 24-hour job that has a way of challenging every part of my DNA. I’m learning though, to enjoy the time I have with my kids, to be thankful for this journey and to receive how God is using my kids to transform me into someone that looks more and more like Him every day. When I can sneak away a few minutes by myself, you’ll usually find me reading, scouring Pinterest, catching up on DVR recordings or tackling one of my many home projects.
That wraps up my Cliff Notes intro. Thanks again for stopping by friends of the MOB Society! Hope you get a chance to look around.
p.s. Today, I get to share a lesson I learned from my oldest son about prayer over at Great Is.org. I encourage you to check out to read great devotionals written by a dear friend who loves God and loves people.
