What I Learned This Week

This is my first ever carnival and it just happens to be hosted by one of my most favorite bloggers, Jo-Lynne at Musings of A Housewife. She's hosting a carnival called, "What I Learned This Week". Feel free to click the button on my sidebar and join in the fun. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two!

-I learned that a toddler doesn't always give a warning before throwing up ALL over your bed. (on the day after all of the bed linens were washed, no less)
-Nothing can get me out of a funk faster than knowing that my husband needs help getting out of a much more serious funk.
-There is a reason that our Sunday school class is studying The Relationship Principles of Jesus and it has something to do with the fact that we could use a little help from Jesus in our relationships.
-After a discussion about communication in Sunday school, I learned that men and women really do communicate in totally different ways. (as if I needed a discussion to teach me this!)
-Feeling our Baby-to-be kick me always feels good.
-Feeling The Muffin kick me hurts my feelings and makes me sad and angry.
-Sweet Tea, hot tea or coffee may be my biggest pregnancy craving.
-Our Baby-to-be likes Communion bread almost as much as I do.

#1 is good to know. It seems that you have learned some really good things this week. I always loved feeling a baby to be kick as well.

awww, I love those days when you can feel the little baby growing and moving in you. It has been about 10.5 yrs since I felt that. My days are done on that. You have so many precious wonderful moments ahead. Children are amazing little creatures - pure good and pure evil all rolled into one -- which is where the part about needing Jesus' help really comes in handy.

I've always wondering at what age kids realize puke is coming that they can actually get themselves to the bathroom or at least to a surface that's easily cleaned. I'm still waiting for that and my oldest will be 8 soon.

What an exciting time for you - I also miss those baby kicks. Thanks for stopping by.

Oh it always has to happen after you just wash the sheets! Yuk!

I love what you are learning in Sunday School. It's so important to include Christ in your relationships... He helps strengthen and overcome!

What a great week of learning for you especially the baby kicks!!!☺

Ooooooooh I can't wait to feel the baby kick (although far less excited about baby puke!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I love meeting new bloggers - the best part of carnivals!

Great list! I remember the #1 days very well...almost, like it was yesterday. I loved the feeling of my baby kicking, flipping and wiggling around in my's been over 14 years but some memories never fade.

Great - love it how we love it when babies kick us on the inside, but we aren't so enthusiastic when it is external!

Lovely blog, nice to "meet" you.

Oh, yes, toddlers and throw up...always a surprise and not in a good way!

Funny how knowing someone else needs you, makes you get on with it;)

Those pregnancy cravings sounded familiar. :)

I know that first one all too well. There must be some law of the universe that says that toddlers vomit only *after* the laundry has all been done.

And the sweet tea craving? That's a different one. It could be a lot worse! I'm a huge fan of sweet tea personally, especially the fruit flavored ones like peach or passion fruit...yum!
