THIS Moment in Time – Selfless Parenting

I’m not one to toot my own horn (aside from my fitness blog which is more of a diary), or my kids’ horns (you’ll never hear me say that they “rocked” anything). But today, I did something completely selfless as a mom. It’s hotter than shit right now (“real feel” of 98*) and on our way home, after doctor appointments and a food truck outdoor lunch, the boys asked to stop at the park.

“No, guys, It’s hotter than shit outside.”

“Ok, Mom. It is hot.”

And I thought, “what do you care if you have to sit outside for 20 minutes while they play?”

So here we are (or…. here we WERE because it was so hot, my phone prompted me to turn it off while writing this post because it was overheating).

(They were more than happy to leave after 15 minutes, thank God!)

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. Haha, oh man, I feel ya on this. Good for you for stopping just for a quick break at least. It’s amazingly hard to do that sometimes!
