I thought I would check in for a bit this morning.
I have learned a bunch from watching babies. I want
to go on record saying that I am so proud of my girls.
They take care of toddlers all day and they manage to
feed their families from scratch, keep the house clean,
keep the kids clean, they manage to have thoughts enough
to blog and to take pictures. They even have hobbies that
they keep up on. I am so amazed at them and the grace in which they
Me on the other hand, well, not so good. I made coffee one morning
without putting coffee in the place where you put coffee. So it
was hot clear water.
I ran and never really managed to get anything done. We had
to call out for pizza because it was dinner time and it never
even crossed my mind that we would need to have dinner
at some point.
I hate to admit I even used the T.V. for entertainment purposes.
Yep, I parked them in front of it so I could rest.
Blogging, if I had little ones in the house full time, forget blogging,
for one thing, I never would have a single original thought. I never
even thought of holding a camera.
Maybe the most powerful lesson I learned was don't watch Toy Story 3
with your grand kids on the day your daughter has had a baby. I had
never seen it before, just because my older kids said it was so sad.
I thought I was going to be able to take it. Nope, I started crying
at the beginning and cried all the way until Woody says " So long partner."
It didn't help that I let them go through the toy boxes that morning to
get some new toys to bring in the house when on top of the toy box
was Woody all crumpled just like in the movie.
So just some thoughts that I have had. My daughter posted pictures
of the baby here. Carrolls All Year.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
