Here's a little sampling.
I got more bang for my buck with JM than I ever bargained for. You know, we really didn't pay more than $25 to have both Maddison and Sarah thanks to awesome Amsco health insurance, Tess and Aaron were freebies thanks to the military and well, JM.....yeah....he cost us around $4,500. I guess Heavenly Father wanted us to feel like we got the most for our money with this kid, cause he keeps me hopping.
There isn't a minute of the day that he's not getting into SOMETHING. (As I'm sitting here typing this and he's by my feet trying to pull DVD's out of their cases). I've finally consented to the fact that my house is going to be a clutter zone thanks to Mr. Tornado and 4 other kids that can't seem to pick up after themselves. I mean, I COULD have a perfectly picked up house, but then again, that is ALL I would do all day long.....is become JM's shadow, piecing back together the destruction zone.
I really loved President Monson's talk on the Sunday morning session of General Conference. In fact, I've already listened to it again, because I need that reminder to embrace each day and enjoy it for what is given me and not look back on these "interesting" times with regret.
So, my little whirlwind of a child......thank you? I think? For what you are giving me right now in my life.
Hey, if nothing else, I get my exercise, chasing him off of the kitchen table, or the dresser or off of TRACEY's night stand (notice it's not MY night stand overflowing with junk....HA HA), or off of the computer desk
or off of my scrapbook desk, or off of my Cricut stand, or out of the bathroom or out of the toilet or out of Tracey's filing cabinet or.....or......or.........
Oops! Gotta run...quite honestly someone left a chair at the table and he's up on top of it now! The kid doesn't think to climb back off the table onto the chair. One of these days he's gonna break his arm falling off onto the tile.
