Have I ever told you…
I can’t ride a bike. Well, I guess that is not exactly the truth. I can, but it is very awkward. I have to make really wide turns and I am very wobbly. I can totally related to Phoebe (from Friends) in the episode where she learns to ride a bike.
I can’t sew. I would love to sew beautiful things. I wish I could whip something up for my girls or for a gift. However, the truth is that when I attempt to sew, it ends up looking like Theo's shirt from The Cosby Show.
One time Taylor had three clothing items stacked on her dresser. When I questioned her about them she said, "Oh, those all need buttons sewn back on them. I am saving them for when Nana comes to visit." I said, "Taylor, I can sew a button." She looked at me very concerned and said, "Are you sure, Mom?"
I can’t get over how much more my kids want to wash their hands since I added Legos to our soap dispenser. Of course they are probably just wasting the soap to see the Legos move, but I am going to pretend that they are doing it for the good health habits.
I can’t believe my baby girl used to be this small. I went through her baby clothes yesterday. How is it possible that only three years ago she could wear this shirt?
I can’t tell you how much I now appreciate a dishwasher. Ours went out two weeks ago. Hand washing dishes stinks! You don't know what you got, till it's gone. Tell your dishwasher how much you appreciate it before it is too late. :)
I can’t decide if I am going to continue to blog publicly. A very scary thing happened to one of my friends through her blog. It has shaken me and I have been going back and forth about blogging since then. I know none of you are losing sleep over my lack of blogging, but I deeply, deeply, deeply appreciate those of you that have checked in on me. HUGS!
I can’t leave you without telling you about this event. My friend, Sarah and her husband, are taking on the missionary role of finding sponsors for 150 children in Ethiopia. They have an event set up for the Nashville area on March 4th. If you are not able to attend that event, but would like to sponsor a child, please contact Sarah through her blog: As for Me and My Household.
