“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” -Stacia Tauscher ♥️ #motherhood #beautifulchaosblog
What we are doing today will make a difference tomorrow. Playing with our little one, singing songs about how much Jesus loves them, making them giggle – these are instrumental to their growth and development. If you are struggling today, know that what you are doing for your child DOES matter. If you were up at 3:00 AM changing a huge blowout diaper, know that these are the moments we will soon miss.

Liam saw Santa this week and told him he wanted a “ball” for Christmas. I tried to get him to say new vacuum, cleaning supplies and a new day planner. Oh, well. Here’s to next year. 🎄🎅🏻
Incase you haven’t been told today, momma - what you are doing matters. Even when people don’t understand the mundane tasks that must be completed over and over AND OVER again. Even when it means keeping the toddler snacks flowing throughout the day. Even when it means keeping the babies freshly diapered. Even when it means washing and folding clothes numerous times a day, EVERY single day. It matters. They matter. YOU matter. The tasks are making a difference and so are you. #motheringmatters #lizzychristian.com #beautifulchaosblog My Epic Adventure: Motherhood - hits the #beautifulchaosblog on Monday! ♥️
When you realize it’s the WEEKEND! 🎉
Aesop said it so well, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” #thoughtfortoday #beautifulchaosblog #lizzychristian.com #throwkindnesslikeconfetti🎉

It’s National Cookie Day! 🍪 Make sure you celebrate for the children. Even the children who won’t eat a cookie today - because that’s just sad. And someone needs to appreciate the artistry and deliciousness and joy that a cookie can bring.  #pregnantgirlalwaysthinkingaboutfood
iPods, iPads, and iWhatevers change, but memories, love, and laughter never go out of style or become obsolete. Embrace that this Christmas. Embrace sentimental gifts. Embrace the corny family Christmas pajamas. Embrace baking a birthday cake for Jesus and singing “Happy Birthday” on Christmas morning. Embrace talking about the TRUE meaning of Christmas.

When you’re feeling fly and wanna pose in that new outfit but eating your fruit snacks is wayyyy more important 😏
We want our children to enjoy their Christmas gifts and we want to bake homemade cookies with them, feed the homeless, and make those adorable Pinterest reindeer for them to give their teachers at church and school. But, it all seems to be way too much. We over plan, become overtired and suddenly, just want to get the holidays over with. Instead of wishing the holidays away, maybe we need to re-focus our hearts and praise God where we are, with what we have. Our children don't need hundreds of dollars of new toys, they need us. They need us to sit together by the fireplace and sip on homemade hot cocoa while we read the Christmas story. They need us to put up Christmas decorations together, blaring Christmas music, dancing around in our Christmas pjs. #refocusedhearts #lizzychristian.com #focusonthefamily
