Guess who...

has a loose tooth????

Last night at bedtime Joseph said, "When I brush my teeth if feels like one of my teeth are loose."
So, I said "Which one"? and he showed me and I examined it and sure enough IT WAS LOOSE!
The four of us were excited and joyful for Joseph's 1st loose tooth!
Be sure to ask him about it!

You Are a Cinnamon Latte
Deep down, you are a sensitive soul. You just want to be loved and appreciated.
You may have a spicy attitude, but you're all sweetness on the inside.

You are dependable and loyal. You have you life together, and you're able to be there for other people.
You like nothing more than a warm, cozy house filled with friends and loved ones.
What Flavor Latte Are You?

How Sweet!

I would love to skip work tomorrow. I get 10 days off, and I plan to not be sick! Therefore,
I need to use them or lose them. I mentioned to the kids that I would like to skip work tomorrow, and they were so sad at the thought of not seeing me for the 5 minuets that they usually do, that I'll probably go in!

What do you think about

when you don't have anything to think about?

I have ample opportunity these days to just let my mind wander where it will at my current job. It doesn't take too much thinking ability! As long as I take care about getting burned or cut I'm fine.

I think I could start writing novels or short dramas. I sometimes come home and write down my ideas and put them away for the future when life is not so hectic. Maybe the summer time!

Sometimes I pray while I'm working. Yes, occasionally I say LORD, please help me clean this floor! Mostly I just pray for direction, or purpose or whatever is needed, and for all the people I love and others who need prayers.

Morning Routine

I'm interested in the morning routines of people and families who are not morning people.
It's definetly no secret that I'm so seriously in that category of people! It simply doesn't matter what time I fall asleep, be it 8PM or 11PM, I am still barely able to function come wake up time.

I would just love to bounce out of bed, but what I really need is an IV line with coffee directly poured through my veins! I will say that once I've had coffee things take a slight turn in a better direction. Naturally, I always sound cheerful and wide awake when I tell the kids it's time to get up and come down for breakfast. They will soon be on to the fact that my chirpy attitude is somewhat of an effort and maybe not ..umm totally genuine for that hour of the day!

Here's my current "routine". I get up and stumble bleary eyed to the bathroom. Hoping on the way that I don't fall and hit my head on the bathtub. I usually stumble into the wall on the way. After that I go into the closet to find some clothes. Lately I've been so tired that I lay on the closet floor (similar to childs pose position in yoga) for awhile and stare at the clothes! It really doesn't matter too much what I wear to work, so I just find something clean and hope for the best. Then I go snuggle the kids a few minutes, and act cheerful and get them out of bed and down the stairs. (By the way they do not pretend.. andDO NOT act cheerful!) Finally, I get coffee and have 5 minuets just sitting and drinking it while the kids eat. (All the while Brendon has been dressed and cooking...he's a morning person!) Thankfully, I do make lunches and lay out kids clothes the night before so it's all easy after we are downstairs. We leave at 7:15. Should I just head straight to the coffee after I get up? I'm sure y'all would love to see pictures of this whole scenario!

Tell me your stories!

It's such a fun and nice group of kids.
The coaches are great too.
They both have practice on the same night, which is good, but
Mom get's to sit through 2 hours of fun!
