It’s Too Quiet… Again

By Kay on Sat, Nov 17, 2007


If you’re an avid reader of my blog (aren’t you all? πŸ™‚ ) then you’ve read my previous post entitled, “It’s Too Quiet…” about my oldest two kiddos’ fun in their bathroom. If that were a movie, then this would be the sequel…

I was sitting in my living room on the couch with my oldest, Kate, just enjoying catching up on emails and skimming through my favorite blogs when it suddenly hit me… I had been smelling something quite strong for the last few minutes. I stopped emailing mid-sentence, looked at Kate and said, “What’s that smell?” As soon as the words came out of my mouth, I knew what I was smelling and it caused me to immediately throw my laptop on the side table next to the couch and jump up to run into MY bathroom to investigate further.

Today we were outside playing the in the back yard because it’s FINALLY dipped below 80 degrees here in Houston! Finally, fall weather!! But, I digress…

SwingWe were having a blast sliding on the slides, playing pirates, feeding the dog sticks (yes, she was actually eating them – weird, huh?), and pretending to fish.

“What I’ve Learned in 27 Years of Raising Kids”

No, I haven’t had 27 year’s experience in raising kids, that would have made me quite a young mom… πŸ™‚ But, I just re-read a post written by my beautiful friend, spiritual mentor, and pastor’s wife and knew I had to share it with all of you, too. It has some of the most profound statements about motherhood that I’ve read in quite some time. While she’s inspired me to jot down my own list, I think my list would never do her’s justice, so I’ll just leave you to see if you enjoy her list as much as I did. And be sure to leave her a comment if you’d like, too!

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
