This is just a list of the few random thoughts going through my head!
Thought #1: I really wish I blogged more. If I spent more time blogging and less time reading other peoples blogs, then I wouldn't feel so bad about not updating my children's baby books.
Thought #2: I stalk WAAAAAYYYYYY too many blogs. It's pretty embarrassing when I have a conversation that goes like this: "Oh my goodness, you'll never believe what I heard today. My friend...well she's not really my friend...I know her from on-line...well I don't really know her, I read her blog...and well, never mind it's not really that interesting" and then I slink away red faced and hoping I didn't reveal just how much of a nerd I really am.
Thought #3: I wonder if anyone stalks my blog. :-)
Thought #4: I need to work on my patience. Yesterday morning when we were supposed to be walking out the door to leave for school, the kids were in Abbey's room goofing off. When I went in there to get onto them about not being ready for school, they said they wanted to show me something with Itty Bitty. Instead of letting them show me, I yelled at them and told them we didn't have time and we were going to be late for school. In retrospect, I felt really bad about it. They were having so much fun with their baby sister making her laugh harder than she has ever laughed before and I cut that short. I apologized to them after school.
Thought #5: I really wish I had a talent for photography. So often I look at something the kids are doing and I can see a great photo opportunity. I want to be able to look back at that photo and not only SEE what they were doing but FEEL the memory. I'm lucky if my photo turns out with the kids in focus. And to think I had a whole semester of photography in college. What did I learn? That I really don't have a talent for photography.
Thought #6: I am really happy for my friends who have recently added to their family through the gift of adoption. I think about the birth mothers' selfless act that gave these special families these amazing little blessings. I think about the Lord's hand in these situations and I am so thankful.
Thought #7: I was beginning to wonder if I was being too protective of Brady because I still don't let him go into public restrooms by himself (he has to go in the ladies restroom with me) and then I read stories like this and it just reaffirms my actions. And to think we were just at Lowry Park last week over spring break.
Thought #8: Thought #7 really made me think about my "danger radar" and I wonder how many times my radar has protected my children from something or someone horrible. Sometimes things like that keep me up at night.
Thought #9: Perhaps my "danger radar" has been enhanced by watching too many episodes of Criminal Minds and Law & Order: SVU. Note to self: do not watch those shows right before going to bed.
Thought #10: I have really bizarre dreams sometimes. Note to self: stop watching Criminal Minds and SVU right before going to bed!!!
