And that they forgive me that life is out-of-control right now.  I love my job.

You have beautiful children, you've done a great job.

What beautiful pictures! Love all of the happy smiles. My children have been pretty tolerant of the craziness around here, too. So grateful for that!

What a gorgeous mother you are Shawni. Your love shows in that smile of yours and they way your kids lean into you. I hope it was a memorable Mother's Day. Enjoy your crazy/happy summer!

Just melted at Lucy's missing tooth grin! Sooo cute! And I just finished reading your book, A Mother's Book of Secrets, and I love you (and your Mom) even more now! 🙂

What adorable pictures! Love the missing tooth! They are so blessed to call you mother! See you tomorrow!

All of you are just BEAUTIFUL! Lucy's little missing tooth is the most adorable thing ever.

Seems like you are facing some trials lately, and I just wanted to say I hope things get better soon, and that you'll be in my prayers.

Hi, I've been stumbling upon your blog by coincidence and have been reading for some months now – your insight and take on life is just so very positive and thought-provoking. I am still young(ish) and not a mother yet, but the experience, advice and thankfulness you share is so, so inspiring – I vowed to go back to this and incorporate many of your great parenting ideas once I become a mom 🙂 ! One more question: Is this a yellow 4-poster-bed in the room your mother's day pics were taken in? Looks like a cool bed! Warm greetings from Germany!

What a beautiful family. I love how each of your kids has their own "look" – no two look alike, but they all look related. (Does Grace look a lot like your mother-in-law in real life? I sure saw the resemblance in a recent photo.)

And you, of course, are simply gorgeous. What a smile you have.

Your children are so beautiful and handsome. Each one is so different and then they are so alike. I love to see pictures of Grace. It's fun to see what she's done with her hair! And I see Lucy is missing a tooth. Wonderful pictures!!!!

Cutest family. Lovely pics.

Your family is just beautiful. You are indeed blessed. (I have a Lucy too!) God Bless you all!!

I'm curious why, if you believe drinking alcohol is sinful, why you would allow Malibu spiced rum to advertise on your blog.
