What I have come to realize in 2008...

I have been looking through my blog at all my posts in 2008. Some things that I worried about are funny to me now since I now know the outcome. Here are some random thoughts in a random order of things I have come to realize in 2008....


  • Your heart does have enough love to love a 2nd child.

  • Bargain shopping is not hard.


  • Babies can do a full flip in your uterus at the end of your pregnancy without Mommy ever knowing it.


  • Not all epidurals are created equally.


  • Daddy can have a "potty mouth" and your two year old will never repeat him, but if Mommy accidentally says ONE inappropriate word, your two year old will be quick to repeat it. He will continue repeating it because of the laughing response he gets from his Dad.


  • I don't always have to have the best things, if that means giving my children what is best for them.


  • My husband is a very hard worker.

  • I AM smart enough to vote!

  • We have outgrown our house and we are ready to move....


  • Don't assume because one child has brown hair & brown eyes that your other one will too.


  • I won't go insane being a stay at home mom. In fact, I LOVE every moment of it.


  • My dear Dad just isn't as young as he once was. After all, he turned 50 this year! (haha...love you Dad)

  • Time out works great for 2 year olds!


  • DVR is a great thing.


  • Wear goggles while cutting onions....it helps!


  • Carving pumpkins is a "Dad Thing."


  • I don't miss teaching like I thought I may. In fact, I never think about it.
  • The new "No cell phones while driving a train" law sucks! Some days that is the only way Jackson gets to talk to his Daddy.


  • As prepared as you may be, you can never prepare yourself enough for those sleepless nights with a newborn.


  • Some babies crawl backwards for a little while. They will turn out okay though.


  • I CAN cook!

  • High gas prices stink! Be thankful when they are low.

  • Kids should not be in he same room as their Dad while the Cowboys are playing....it's not good for a child's vocabulary.

Happy New Year!

Great post! I enjoyed reading it. It's like even though time flies, some things seem like so long ago because so much has changed. Hope that makes sense...
