• coffeeandcrumbsMeet the #CoffeeandCrumbsWriter, @katiemblackburn!
    1️⃣ Kids? Harper (4), Cannon (2.5) and Jordi (14 months). Yes. It’s been a long stretch of diapers

    2️⃣ Job? SAHM and part-time lecturer at Whitworth University

    3️⃣ How I take my coffee? I make my own cold brew and finish it off with a heavy dose of creamer. I’m rather snobbish about the cold brew.

    4️⃣ Are you up before your kids or are they your alarm clock? I am a 5:00am-er and always up before the kids, because honestly, those quiet morning hours are the difference between grateful and bitter for me.

    5️⃣ If you could tell your pre-mom self one thing, what would it be? No amount of reading and pinning can prepare you for this job, but one day at a time, you will figure out how to do it. You will.

    6️⃣ What is the best advice you’ve been given as a mom? Parent their hearts, not their behaviors.

    7️⃣ Shower before carpool lane or yoga pants and top knot? Ha, a shower? Yoga pants always. Bless you, dry shampoo.

    8️⃣ What is one thing motherhood has taught you about yourself? I was a college athlete so lived under a myth of hard-work and self-sufficiency most of my life. Motherhood shattered those things for me. I cannot do this work without Jesus, my village, a few good babysitters, and secret stashes of dark chocolate.

  • erin.weme@katiemblackburn I love the part about living under a myth of hard work and self-sufficiency. I just moved from Boston to Sandpoint ID last Feb and my husband & I had our first kiddo in April. It has for sure been a season of Jesus shattering everything I thought I knew. I have been trying to find the words to capture my feelings about all of this, and your words have brought me a bit closer. Blessings to you and your family!
