I guess you noticed that despite my best efforts, I have really neglected the blog as of late.  I apologize.  Really, I do.  I have been much better about taking pictures, writing down what the kids are doing/saying, and generally documenting things, I just haven’t blogged about it. The thing is, life as been moving fast for us in the Watson home.  We’re in a season of transition and change, and that, my friends, is a beautiful thing. 

If you follow me on Facebook or Insagram you already know that as of last Friday, April 4th,  I no longer work in television.  I am the new Communications Director for the county school district.

About a year and half ago I started getting really frustrated with life.  Honestly, I chalked it up to pregnancy hormones and a few big hits to the pocket book thanks to a jacked up van. The thing is, I just couldn’t shake this feeling of impending change.  I’m pretty sure I drove all my friends, family, and Bible study gals insane talking about it.  Oh yeah, Eric too…ya’ll the man is a saint for dealing with me. 

At one point he sent me a sermon about Godly Frustration and how often times it is that very emotion (frustration) that leads us on the next road of our journey.  So, Eric and I decided to step out in faith and start knocking on doors.  Our prayer was that God would only open THE door he wanted us to walk through because when you’re really close to a situation it’s hard to be discerning.  Additionally, we prayed that my next job would be more conducive to a family lifestyle and carry state retirement benefits.  Then I started knocking…and knocking…and knocking. 

For more than six months I applied for jobs.  Despite leaving it in the Lord’s hands, I was still a mess not “knowing.” I was willing to go anywhere and do anything I just wanted to know what it was.  Finally, he opened this door and it meets the specific things we requested.

Many people ask if it was difficult leaving television news, and the answer is no.  Morale personally and within the station had been very low for quite a while, so I’m sure that played a part in my eagerness to depart.  As I mentioned before, the television industry is simply not condusive to a family lifestyle.

I feel blessed to have followed this crazy dream of mine, to have worked through the chaos, to have paid my dues (lots of lots of professional dues) and to achieved this goal. But I’m a Mommy now, and that has changed me.  I did what I wanted to do, and now I’m ready to move on.  I want a career that is fulfilling and accommodating to my family.  This is it, and I feel so incredibly blessed to begin this new journey. 


  1. I am so so happy for you, Morgan! Really grateful this answer to prayer has come for you and that sweet family. You will always be a rock star and ray of sunshine wherever you are!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
