Motherhood thoughts


Things I noticed about this day:
Our house is sold, there are boxes everywhere, so why clean? I am determined to give this place one last scrubbing in a week in a half and be done with it. Please do not drop in, if you must come by please call before you come. No, I am not joking!
We have yogurt in the drawer in our fridge, unopened, untouched. It's been in there for a week, this NEVER happens. Yogurt in the house is always found out about and is eaten at rapid rates of speed.
Jenna is talking more each day. As she rides in the shopping cart at stores, she points to things and says, "I wan dat, I wan dat."
Bethany is incredibly smart. The best student a mother could ask for, when she is trying that is. If she "don't get it" it's not going to be gotten today. More than likely, it will be gotten tomorrow.
If you plan for supper early in the morning and get all the ingredients for a healthy supper in the crock-pot, then go run errands all afternoon, your supper will not be ready to eat if you did not turn the crock-pot on.
There is very little a two year old needs. We have so many popular two year old toys already, Jenna's birthday is the day after tomorrow and I have no idea what she would possibly like. I'm open to ideas. Target failed me.

Moments I loved about this day:
Jenna scraped her thumb today, on what I'm not sure. She needed to be held for several minutes and wanted me to kiss it.
Having two different conversations with Jophie today. One about the different kinds of engineers, railroad engineers, building engineers and so on. The other was about the dangers of pesticides being put on the grass for animals. Yes, he did say pesticides. I love it when he tells me how things work, one of my favorites was when he went into great detail about how couplers work.
Smelling me clean kids after their baths.
Joseph bragging to Bethany in the van, "Sissy, I whistle at the birds and they tweets back at me!"
Realizing again, when I woke up this morning that I have a baby growing inside of me. How could I not, the nausea won't let me forget.
