One September Day

Raise your Hands..

Raise your hands if your sure..

( just kidding),,

Raise your Hands if you have or are - experiencing any of the following:

~a little face chatting to you in the shower through the a pulled back shower curtain.

~Being told you are a "good girl- Mommy," for going potty .

~Stepping on crushed cheerios, and peeling them off your toes as you quickly slip into some flip-flops on the way out the door.

~serving dinner with all plastic wear - because, alas, you have just discovered that EVERY SINGLE piece of silver ware has been accidentally put in the trash or left in the sandbox.

~that eerie sense that someone is standing beside you as you sleep.. to then slowly opening your eyes in the middle of the night to a child standing eye level to you

~Any special brush you may call your "own" ends up in every bathroom or bedroom for everyone else, except for your own use.

~Discovering after jumping out of shower and quickly putting on undergarments, that whomever folded and sorted laundry, accidentally( again), gave you your 8 year olds aforementioned, and they are NOT going to fit! Nope!

~Smile at the on-lookers at the store as you carry an over-tired, and somewhat naughty child out to your vehicle, all the while acting as if it is such a wonderfully happy, and all-so normal moment.

~Discover that almost every picture and video on your cell phone was taken by your children, and they are more tech-savvy than yourself.

~Oh-oh.. a diaper( only wet one), was accidentally thrown in with towels in washing machine. Nice.

~cannot remember how old you REALLY are, because you have spent so much time joking about how young you really aren't..

~discover that you have now made pancakes for dinner three nights any given week.

~Think about grocery shopping as if it is a field trip -packing lunch, and drinks, and potty chairs into the van for the long "trip!"

~fallen asleep singing, praying and putting your kiddos to bed, and they get back up and find daddy to visit with

~hate changing crib sheets? I do.

~Bet ya haven't experienced this one... coming home at night to find 20 chickens roosting on your porch, in the flowers, on the porch lights, and in your rockers.. yep..

LIFE is GOOD! Don't you agree?
So,, Raise your Hand.. if you agree!!

My friend Melissa has a sweet baby boy who always has that "life is Good" personality! Isn't he just adorable!?!

    Oh September How funny!

    Yes I am raising my hand too! Children do make life interesting, but oh so much fun! I couldn't imagine life without them! Yes, you are right, I haven't experienced the chickens roosting on my porch!

    Blessings to You!

    I'm raising my hand to almost everything you said! There's nothing like being a mom, huh?!

    I can totally relate to everything but the diaper in the washer and the chickens! What a great attitude to consider all of it a blessing from God!

    Well, you are younger than me - darn it! Keep talking. :)

    Grocery shopping IS an ordeal - definitely life a field trip huh?

    I hate changing bunk bed sheets. I haven't changed crib sheets in a while. Harrison has been sleeping in a play pen for two years! It fits in my room and a crib doesn't. Oh well. He's survived just fine. :)

    Life IS good. My hand is raised!

    Raise your hand if you waited ENTIRELY TOO LONG to whip up a batch of the "Baked Oatmeal"---YUM and DOUBLE YUM--this recipe is in the Favorites box!!

    O so many blessings in this crazy life of ours; GOD is surely GOOD!
    We truly have so many reasons to feel gratitude, including having Christian friends like you, September.

    Raising two hands!!! :)

    I remember one time in a crowded bathroom at a high school football game and my sweet little Bethany CLAPPED for me when I went potty and said Way Too Loudly, "Good Job Mommy! You did 'peeps' too!!!!" :)
