All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Let’s Make It “A Thing!”


A recent post of mine elicited many comments saying that we should “make it a thing.”  I don’t really know how to “make it a thing,” so here is my attempt!

We all learn things about ourselves when we move into new phases in our lives – and parenting is no different.  What have YOU learned about yourself, as a parent, that has really surprised you?  What are your top 10 surprising realizations of yourself as a mom or dad?

Go ahead and make your own posts and link back to this so that I can come read them all.  HA!

Here’s my #1 – will it be on your lists?

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. I’m gonna do this…I just don’t know when…Hopefully soon…this is my marathon weekend of work…but yeah I think that WHOLE MILK might just make my list LOL

  2. Love it, doing it… but like S, I don’t know when I will get to it, but soon! 🙂 Have yet to try whole milk but I am sure there will be other similarly weird and surprising things on the list! 🙂

  3. I shall begin a list forthwith, and then revisit it to make it funny! I thought of 3 things right away…just need 7 more!
