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.

Maggie On A Saturday

Maggie sitting on the back steps cleaning her finger nails.

I have a different attitude and outlook on Saturdays, even though I take care of the kids as usual and Big Daddy is often not at home. I do a lot less housework and I find it easier to spend the entire morning outside without feeling like I should be doing something.

The Saturday before last, I found myself parenting alone while Big Daddy was at work. Maggie was so funny and I wrote down a few of the things that she said so that I could remember them later.

"It's horrible. There's bird poop all over Ellie's swing". ~when we first got to the swing set
"I'll pretect myself from strangers while you put Ellie to bed".~she was swinging and Ellie was falling asleep in her swing after lunch
"I'm just going to put flowers all in the road so that people will know that I'm a friendly person".~on our walk
And my favorite...
"Neighbors love me".

Her Mommy loves her spite of her mood swings. Last Sunday after Church, Big Daddy picked Maggie up from her class, while I was getting Ellie. They were finishing up a "Celebration of Families" to go along with their Bible story about Abraham and Sarah. While we were eating lunch I asked Maggie what kind of party food they had. She responded, "You know, those little round doughnuts without holes in the middle". They're also known as doughnut holes.

I LOVE the things they say at Maggie's age! She is so clever!
