What I Learned This Week

This past week has been fairly uneventful, but I'm always learning something new. You can visit the carnival at Musings of a Housewife.

  • Kids really do say the darndest things.
  • No matter how much sleep I get, it never seems like enough.
  • Planning a date for Big Daddy's birthday is so exciting for me that I want to pick the restaurant. (Any suggestions??) Maybe that's because we ate at's on my birthday.
  • The Muffin's half birthday just happens to be the same day as our engagement anniversary. This is the first year that I've realized it...I'm slow, I guess.
  • I think I'm really addicted to coffee. I look forward to drinking it anytime of the day...but only with some sort of chocolate in it.
  • The Muffin loves to cook.
  • Baby Ellie can stay in the nursery at church without crying!
  • My hardwood floors squeak when they're really clean. :-)
  • Laundry is the story of my life.
  • Baby Ellie loves to pull her socks off and this will lead to losing a sock before church.

I think it's so cute when babies find their toes. And I'm with you on the sleep thing. It's never ever enough.

My daughter NEVER stayed in the nursery at church without melting down. I think it was because she was usually the only one there during the service we attend, so it was tougher. I tell you, sitting through a service withOUT having to wrestle a little one is MUCH more enjoyable!
