All posts by Mommy Lane's Adventures

My name is Ashley and I'm married to probably the best guy in the world. His name is Matt and he is awesome! We have a 4 year old boy... Little Sir, a 2 year old daughter Little Miss and our newest addition, a 2 month old boy... our Littlest. I am able to stay home with them right now so I'm taking advantage of that and enjoying every moment even the pulling out my hair and grinding my teeth moments. I'm a lover of God, family, laughter, books, The Office, and delicious food. My main goal everyday is to be the best woman I can be. I enjoy a good joke, strange but humorous people and coffee. I'm contemplating homeschooling but definitely open to public school, I have an ongoing pro's/cons list in my head on the subject. I actually have several lists in my head at any given moment so that's something. (Update: Officially homeschooling this fall but always open to something different as the years go by.) This blog will be a little about us Lane's, our lives, our struggles, our adventures and well, everything in between including those crazy moments that most people don't really want to admit or talk about. Yeah I will probably be bringing those moments up! So without further delay here's a little glimpse at the Lane's...

Magic in Books

The Storm that Scattered Many

Last night around 2 am I woke up by myself on the bottom bunk of my kids bunk bed. The storm outside had settled, the wind a silent whisper and the rain a gentle drumming. I faintly remembered stumbling out of bed and tripping over toys to get to my kids who were wailing in fright at the thunderous sounds of the storm.

And now here I lay, by myself. The nightlight blinding me as I look around for my little ones.

And the search began.

I head first to my room and poke my head inside where I found 2 sleeping cherubs gently snoring.

One was my 3 year old daughter, they other my 29 year old husband.

And so the search continued.

I peeked inside my littlest guy’s room and withdrew as soon as I heard his deep steady breaths from the crib! Oh such a sweet sound.

My oldest couldn’t be far… down the hall I roamed and as I turned the corner into our living room, my oldest was there sleeping like a baby with his fur baby! My heart pitter pattered and my swollen sleepy eyes smiled.


Oh a boy and his dog… who can separate!?!?
