no time for a title

For those who don't know, Rebecca and Andy will be leaving Thursday to travel to China! Owen will be their arms very soon!

Does anyone else
- have a really difficult time putting a jacket on over a shirt with 3/4 length sleeves?

- hate knee socks but love OVER-the-knee socks?

- wonder how the word "poop" can be so funny to boys...even as toddlers?

- have your thoughts filtered through the lyrics of 80s & 90s songs?

- wonder at what age you stopped thinking "bunny ears" were amusing?

- think that being let loose in Sephora would be the ultimate toddler hands-on experience?

- LOVE this verse: I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. gal 2:20

- cringe when your doorbell rings because either your house looks a wreck...or you do?

BTW, two missionary girls rang my doorbell today. I invited them in (because it was chilly) but only in the foyer (because my house was a disaster)...and they barely got out their names before M dropped the big bomb. I was like "what's that smell?" EEEEEEK!!!! It was N.A.S.T.Y. And my eyes were tearing up. And my mouth was gasping for air. But those little girls just kept on smiling and talking...smiling and talking...smiling and talking! I wonder if God was chuckling at us.

M is getting quite skilled at playing with his train. Amazing improvement!

ACK!!!!!! I just got the call that M's new little kissin' cousin is ON THE WAY!!!!!!

Tish, I needed a laugh. I am sorry about the poop though!

p.s. Yes, even BIG boys laugh at the word 'poop' and they even have our 14m old daughter doing the same thing, argh! : )

Ah, the days of the train table! I miss those days!!

And, yes, I hate having a jacket on over 3/4 length sleeves, but in New England, you just have to get over it. It's too darn cold to go without a jacket!

I live in FL so the jacket/sleeves dilemma is a bit lost on me.

I HATE, loathe, despise socks of any kind. Again, being a Florida resident eliminates that issue from my life almost altogether.

I can't remember the order of the rest of them but I will say one thing about the word "poop." It's a boy thing. Boys are boys are boys and I love it!

My mother and I own a childcare center and guns or gun-play of any kind is not allowed. Most of these kids haven’t been exposed to guns or toy guns or action movies, etc. so you wouldn’t think it would be a big issue, yet every morning at least one little boy will bite his toast into the shape of a gun and make the, "pschew,pschew" sound! It's just in their DNA.

Happy New Year Tish!

Thanks for the laugh!

I always seem to get on your blog, and get side tracked with something.....usually a loud 'Mommmmm' from the other room:-)!

Ok, I hope I can just finish this post.....I have to say I just LOVE the pic of M (down a few posts) sitting in the rocks, looking off to (our) right. He looks like he's thinking up something REALLY GOOD in that MENSA brain of his!

Your post on New Years really touched me as well.... I've been reading 100 Days of Prayer by Stephen Arterburn and the same day I read your post, I read 'Discovering God's Plans'...It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13

I thought of you, especially when I read..."If not a sparrow falls upon the ground without your Father, you have reason to see that the smallest events of your career and your life are arranged by Him. ~C.H. Spurgeon
