about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

What I Learned This Week

Musings of a Housewife is hosting the What I Learned This week carnival again. I'm actually going to participate this week! It seems like I've been too busy lately to get a post for this together. My next goal is to participate in Tara's Music Monday, if I can find the time to search for and remember how to post a video!!

  • Explaining death and Heaven to Maggie is a challenge. My little Muffin has such a sweet heart. (I really like what Big Mama told Caroline about Heaven.) The Muffin and I discussed how our sweet friend loved fishing and I told her that he might be fishing in Heaven with Jesus. Unfortunately, I told her this as we were driving by the pond near our house and now she thinks that our friend might be fishing there. My heart broke.
  • Seeing one of your dearest, sweetest friends without her husband for the first time ever is heartbreaking.
And on a lighter note...
  • Even though Baby Ellie has extended her sleep time in the morning and I'm getting an extra hour (or two) of sleep, it's just never enough.
  • Most of my time is spent doing laundry or cleaning children in some form or fashion.
  • Muff's preschool is trying to rob me blind with the prices of school pictures. Of course, I want tons of pictures of her and Baby Ellie in their giraffe pants!
  • Trying to establish family traditions for our family is difficult, when Big Daddy will not pitch in with fun and exciting ideas.
  • I may never get both the garage and bonus room straightened up and everything put where it belongs. At least my room, a.k.a. the laundry room, is as neat as it can be!
  • Getting a sweet card from someone at your old church can really make you miss everyone there. It only makes things worse when we aren't so sure that we've found the "right" church yet. *sigh*

I need to go read what Big Mama said about Heaven. I get about 8 hours of sleep and it's still not enough. Church hunting is the pits! For now we are settled until we move again....

I need sleep too. I'm convinced that I'm still recovering from all the sleep deprivation.

I'm sorry about your friend's loss.
