Maybe I am doing something right?!?

I am sure as a mom I will think and/or get asked several times what the best moments with my kids are or were. Well, excluding the day they were born, I believe I have had one of those moments.

The kids new favorite to listen to in the car is Veggies Tales singing contemporary Christian hits. It is okay, but as with every CD we have two songs that are played over and over again at the pleading of Lauren and the clapping of Sean. The first, Newsboys, "Shine". The second, Steven Curtis Chapman, "Dive". In listening to "Shine" the other day, Lauren began to sing all the words. And then out of the blue says to me "Mommy, I love Jesus". I then replied that I loved Jesus to and for that moment dare I say, all was right with the world.

As much as my kids can challenge me, make me want to cry, scream, laugh, and at times pull my hair out, I am trying my best to teach them. And for that moment in time, I felt like I had done something right. And that, thus far is my proudest moment in parenting my little girl.

Here is my sister's blog for some great writing. :)


Who knows. . .

Well, I have finally decided to try and be a "blogger". Who knows if I will get this right or even if there is a "right" way. Basically, friends blog, their friends blog, and now my own sister is a distinguished blogger, so. . I thought I'd try it. If you are looking for a great writer and grammar/spelling queen, well you should just stop reading now-maybe my sisters blog would be a better place for you as she is MUCH better at all of that than I. I am sure this blog will turn into my own rants on things such as children, being a mom, politics, religion, you know all those things we think about, but don't talk about. Or maybe we are afraid to talk about. Maybe that is what makes this blogging world so popular. That we type things and think it might be safer than saying them aloud. Who knows. . .
What I do know is that I am many things, but all in all just trying to do the best I can and have fun with it all.
