Last weekend was a first for both Macks and me. I left him overnight for the very first time. I was actually very excited for the trip, because it was a much needed girl’s weekend that I haven’t had in a very long time. While I was sad to leave my kids, I was more excited to have time to myself.
To be honest, I haven’t really had any time for myself in years. When I did travel alone, it was always for work, which isn’t exactly the long relaxing alone time that you dream of. It was becoming more and more apparent to me just how hard raising three little ones can be. As much as I love being their mother, I was becoming so focused on that, that I forgot to focus on me.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I wanted to spend some time really thinking about my life and why I’m thankful for it. To be honest, I tend to get caught up in negativity, and I really have to try hard to remind myself to be grateful. Thankfully with my kids, I don’t have to try very hard. My kids are my world, and they are the sweetest kids I could ever hope for. So below, I’m sharing just a few reasons why I’m so thankful for them.

November is the month we give thanks. We should probably do it more often, but as parents — let’s be honest — it’s very easy to get caught up in the day-to-day routine of a million other things to take care of.
That’s why I’m happy that each November we get to take some time to stop, reflect, and give thanks for being parents.
Here’s what I’m thankful for as a father:

Bee’s first Christmas flew by for us, mainly because we were still in survival mode of nursing, (not) sleeping and adjusting to our newfound parenthood status. We bypassed a lot of activities, opting instead to stay in and hole up with holiday movies and hot cocoa. It was surprisingly relaxing, and sweet, and we savored that first year together so much – just the three of us.
