can't get enough...

I can't get enough of being a momma.
I can't get enough of my chick.
I can't get enough of moments spent with her.
And we really can't get enough of Pumpkin Patches.


I've been telling my little girl how lucky she is these days. I'm trying to teach her, even at such a young age to appreciate things, places, traditions. I want her to know that we don't need to do these things. I want her to know that we do these things for memories. For fun. I tell her that these are things good girls get to do, I tell her that mommy wants to take her to special things because I love her. I want her to know that if she's naughty, fun things won't happen. I want her to understand good things come to good little girls. 



When I tell her we're going somewhere or we get to do something...she looks at me and says, "I lucky momma?" I look at this sweet little girl, that I'm raising alone for the most part and couldn't be more proud. I'm teaching her things and most importantly she's learning. She's appreciating the little things I can do for her...


I'll take her to a million pumpkin patches over and over...because we enjoy them...she enjoys them. We don't have to go far and we don't have to spend any money. We can spend ten minutes or we can spend an entire day...either way it doesn't matter to her. She's out exploring and she's spending the time with her momma. She's in heaven. So am I.



What is it about fall...pumpkins...the crisp air that's creeping in...



Falls the start of holidays, sweater wearing, cold, heaters on and lots of time snuggling...
I'm not sure if I was ever a huge fall fan. This year, oh boy...this momma thing and fall flow hand and hand. I can't get enough...


We've got a few more patches lined up, pumpkin carving, crafts, trick-or-treating and lots of snuggling to be had...



I declare October as Pumpkin Patch fest on the blog...forgive me...but I can't get enough of them. The memories...

You amaze me! I need to change my mindset and see rainbows and butterflys in single parenting. HELP!
