I have a 4 year old.

Last night as my son was falling asleep he told me the story of how before he was a a baby he was a seed that came down from the sky. He was planted in someone’s tummy but they couldn’t grow him so he went back to the sky. Then he got planted in my heart and I grew him so good with so much love and that’s how I became his best Mommy. He also explained to me his version of how solar energy worked (I don’t know much about solar energy so it may be accurate) and that grey race cars are faster than red race cars because they’re more aerodynamic (yes he used the work aerodynamic). 

A lot of days the dishes don’t get cleaned, my floors are often dirty and deadlines are pushed back more often than rests comfortably with me. It’s easy to get into a racquet of inadequacy but when I take the chance to pause and soak up the miracle that is this child I’m reminded I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.

Happy 4th Birthday to my sweet boy.

I look forward to you using those listening ears you promise me all 4 year olds use…

CHELSIE DIPAOLO

Hi! You’ve met professional Chelsie. Now here’s the rest of me… I’m a chef, yogi, entrepreneur and single mom, cooking up a purpose driven life with an award-worthy 3 year old on my hip. I have two boxers who I love more than life (but still regularly tell to go play in traffic), a lover of vegetables, fitness fanatic, committed self-developer & amateur table dancer. Like most, I haven’t weathered this life without my fair share of challenges – all of which have taught me that life can be both excruciating and exquisite within the exact same moment. I’m grateful you are here and look forward to connecting.

Mom hacks, nutrition tips, cooking techniques and valuable insight to the secret sauce that holds together this crazy, beautiful life.
