The last couple months my kids (and lets face it, my entire family as well) have been absolutely amazing.
They put up with my long hours, my stress, my anxiety and not being around as much as I used to be....you know, normal stuff when opening a brand new brick and mortar retail store...
Madeline even confided in her daddy that she was worried I wouldn't be able to make it to her Mother's Day Tea put on by her preschool.
**Insert ugly cry**
I never want to miss things like this! And I made sure that I was there for both my girls and the events they worked so hard on.
This where it gets tricky. I had a third child this year. Adventures in Bloom now requires my full attention as well. My girls will always come first, but what I love even is that they are now helping me raise Adventures in Bloom.
Yesterday we set up at The Mill Market in Fuquay, NC. Madeline got up early, helped me set up and then sat with me ALL morning. She helped bag up earrings and hand out flyers to customers. This was the first time she even wanted to come with me and I had my doubts that she would make it till noon.....but she surprised me and was amazing the whole time.
Annabelle is only 3 (and a half) and her level of patience has also surprised me. She loves helping me around the shop, sweeping, watering the flowers.....
This is not to say either child is perfect. HAHA They don't always love the fact that mommy is busy all the time. But they do know that I love them and I love my business and I LOVE that they can co-exist so beautifully.
Also, I can NOT forget to wish my own mom Happy Mother's Day!!
I rely so heavily on both my parents and my mom is always there for me and my girls. Happy to watch them when I'm working, happy to sit at a festival all day with me in the heat, happy to give whatever and wherever she can. She has always set the "mom bar" really high and I have a lot to live up to.
