Baby, You’re A Firework

    Oh my goodness, I'm almost crying just reading about your 4th! Props to you for following through as a parent. Seriously though, SO hard! I remember nannying in college and coming to the realization that when I punished the kids, I was punishing myself too! Never fun, but as a teacher, I wish there were more parents like you! P.S. I'm glad Abigail got to enjoy some fireworks on the 5th! Great pictures!

  2. First of all, did you get a blowout for the 4th… Because your hair was on point! Secondly, oh how I can relate to your 4th! We (and when I say we, I really mean Conor) kept Liam up far to late the night before, so he was a bit of a hot mess on the 4th. I didn't want to deal with that all over again the next day after another late night so I put him to bed before fireworks. Oh how the mom guilt hit me. I seriously cried about it the next morning.

    So, number one – that family photo of the four of you?? The BEST. And go you for following through! I bet that was hard but she needed to know you meant business! Glad Daddy saved some for her on the 5th… and that puppy? WHAAAA?!?!?

  4. Life with s 4.5 year old is never predictable, they got FEELINGS. So sweet of Jim to save some fireworks for her- dad win for sure. All your pictures are adorable (as per usual) Thank God every day is new again 🙂

    What fun! We've been spending time with family and cousins as well…it's good for the soul.

  6. Aww I'm sorry the 4th ended on such a note, but I'm glad the 5th was much better! Abigail looks very happy with the fireworks! Mabel looks very sweet with Jim too! I love that red shirt by the way, do you remember where you found it?

  7. Sweet, crazy girls! ;). Gotta love them!

  8. I'm sorry the 4th ended rough, but kudos to you for sticking with what you told her! I'm glad it paid off and the 5th was such a great day! XOXO

  9. Mama, I give you mad props for following through! I'm sure that has been the hardest thing you've had to do. BUT on the plus side, hopefully she learned from that and you never have to do it again. AND you have the sweetest husband ever for saving her some fireworks for the next day. Daddy for the win!

  10. your family is so adorable! but i am so sorry about Abigail and her meltdown. I can't imagine how hard it would be to follow through, but hopefully she will remember it for next time 😉

  11. Love!! Love seeing your precious family and girls!! So happy to be back blogging and to follow along with you!! Xxxx.

    Parenting IS so hard! Good for ya'll for following through. I know I struggle with this. Out of exhaustion I think I let a lot slide…and I see those results, too. So this past week I've been FOLLOWING THROUGH!

    Love all the pics!
