Whoops! This is later than I wanted to post it but I was out living the sentiment that I am hoping to pass on to all you lovely Bab's for this week so I hope you will understand…

But first in order to best explain what I've been doing I give the mike to the Mini-HDIC aka Solstice to tell you about some new and exciting developments over at our house!

Wait… Ummm What did she say?… Where is she going?


This correct ladies and gentlmenses… My babies are in school… After 4 years of being a full time stay-at-home mom…. I'm sending my babies to school and counting it all joy… I absolutely loved being a stay at home mommy, and would love to return to it someday. But right now I have a lot of plans, dreams, and goals that were clashing with the daily grind of stay at home momdom… I've been talking about putting the babies in daycare for EVER but would just get discouraged with  my choices, how much its costs, and the concerns of leaving my greatest gifts in someone else's care… But I knew that I was making excuses to not live my best life… I knew that I was scared to step out on faith and make my dreams come true so I was using the kids a crutch to hobble my way to mediocrity…

Now THE HDIC is a whole lot of thangs… but mediocre is not one of them…

So inspired by this weeks,  Monday Motivation, I knocked off the bullshit and I did what I had to do… I stopped talking and I started doing….  The past few weeks have been an obstacle course of daycare visits, forms, financial planning, and  all kinds of madness… But this morning I packed up my babies and took them to their new school… Praying the whole way that God would keep them safe and make our transition into this easy, obstacle free, and peaceful…

And YA'lllllllllll God showed up and showed out… Them babies payed me NOOO mind… Clay went straight to the teacher and gave her a hug and Cassius went right to the music and started dancing and playing with another one of the kids…

I really thought my heart was going to burst… I was so nervous and worried… but they were FABULOUS Ya'll!!! Solstice almost knocked me over trying to snatch off her coat and go play with the other kids… As I was leaving I went to go check on her and she told me… " I'm going to be a good girl mommy and then you can buy me a present when I get back from school…" LOL! It was… AMAZING…. DO YOU HEAR ME!! AMAZING…

Like God,the universe, and everything in the world were like we see you, Senam… We know this wasn't an easy decision for you to make, Or an easy taske for you to pull off, but you did it… and we are here, and your babies are fine… and now its your time to shine… And then it was like I could hear them chanting this weeks monday motivation…..



This morning my husband went off to his new job as Vice President of his union… Eight years ago, on our very first date together, the day after Thanksgiving, over day old  dry turkey and limp asparagus, he told me he wanted to change his union for the better. He told me he wanted to be one of the people who could make decisions that would improve the lives of the people that he worked with… Today he is…

He didn't spend years telling me about how he really should put himself out there and try to be elected…. He just stuck his neck out, worked hard, fought hard, and WON… So its an amazing day for my family… My husband is in his new job, my babies are in their new school and I…  well, I am going tooo…. stop talking about what I am going to do… I'm not going to talk about it… I'm going to BE about it... And believe me when I say… You and I BOTH will be amazed and what I am about to do….. But first… What are you going to be about?

Stay Fierce, Fabulous, and bout it, bout it…

Uhm does she look at their hands to tell them apart?! How cute! I love it! Good luck to you and all you plan on doing. I love that message," Don't talk about it, be about it!" Something I live by and will say at the drop of a hat!

Okay I think my comment got lost. I was saying, does Solstice look at the boy's hands to tell them apart? That is so cute! Congrats to you and good luck on all you plan to do. I love the phrase, "Don't talk about i be about it!" I live by it and will say it at the drop of a hat!

I had to stop half way through your post because it made me cry.  I'm so with you on this week's motivation.  On monday I have to return to work and put my little one in someone elses hands.  I'm so emotional about this but I know it has to be done.  You have been blessed abundantly.  You are a beautiful, talented woman of God and when He shows up He shows out.  I can only imagine what you have planned but if I know one thing I know it will be FAB!
