Happy Post

Posted by Mandy at 12:02 PM
I couldn't think of anything to blog about, but wanted to blog, so here's just a happy post. Some things that have made me happy lately.... because I know you all are dying to know what floats my boat!

* Samuel's 6 month checkup went well today. One shot (I delay vaccinations a bit), a clean bill of health, and confirmation that I'm not crazy, he really is that big. (90% still... no wonder he's outgrowing EVERYTHING.)

*Carter loves to read finally. He brings me books constantly. I was worried he'd never like to read!

* Christmas is right around the corner! We start celebrating this weekend with my mom and sister and family... yippie!

* I lost another pound... WOOT!

* My husband is back home!

* He did dishes, swept the kitchen, did laundry, and put away random things in our room while I was with Samuel at the doctor's this morning. Told ya he's the best!

* I have Parent Group tonight. It's like free therapy. My kids and husband have no idea how happy they should be that I've attended this all of these years.

* I got to see "silly me" and her kids for the first time in FOREVER last week. Makes me miss them more... got to get back there soon.

* Football season will be over soon... Praise the Lord I won't have to watch NFL anymore SOON!

* I met two other moms with three small children at the dr's office this morning and they seemed to love and enjoy their children.

* I feel like, for the first time in a long time, I might actually be almost to the place God wants me to be. I say "almost" b/c we can never really be "there"... but I'm trying and feeling good about life and myself again. I found the Joy again!

* Madison's Christmas party at school is this Thursday and she's so thrilled that I'm coming. Her friends all know me and seem to think we're all just neat. (some of the kids are always freaked out by Clayton.. if he shows up to eat lunch with her in uniform some of the kids look like they want to hide under the table) I love being able to go to all of her school stuff. Makes me feel so "mom-ish."

* I got to see a picture of Maury and her family hanging on 'silly me's' fridge while visiting and it was funny b/c it made me really realize that she's a real person... not just a name on the internet. (beautiful family those Drapers' are!)

* I'm letting go of all of my baby clothes. Okay, so I'm not necessarily happy about this, it down right breaks my heart, but i'm TRYING to get happy about it so here it is on the happy post!

*I gave a ton of Madison's clothes to a good friend and it made me happy to see how happy it made her. (and her kids! dress up time!)

* You people read my blog even though I don't know why. I don't think I'm interesting at all so thanks for always showing up to see what random rambling post I've put up. Your comments make my day. (and I don't know why that is either... lol)

I know what you mean about kids having the police-phobia, Dana's husband gripes about it all the time. It's a huge pet peeve of his when parents say "Get in that carseat of that cop will "GET YOU!"

You should sell the baby clothes on ebay - I'm serious - then you can go buy new clothes! I'm full of tips if you need help! :)

Ha Ha...that one about me cracked me up! Yes, we are REAL! LOL

My kiddos are scared of policemen too. My kids are like....I saw a policeman, and he didn't steal me! I am really not sure where they even got that from!

thrilled about the clothes! i dressed my girl up to go out last night and she pranced around. too good!

my second still is not wild about reading, but it's all good - glad your second is coming around!

he is big - are you kidding me?!

yay - to another pound! and at the holidays to boot.

you mean hubbys clean? don't tell mine.

you're seriously glad football season will be over? the only thing good about that is getting into the full basketball season, but then all we have is baseball and that just sucks.

i'm glad your joy is back. so important, isn't it!?

I love this post, too! Made me laugh. Yeah, it sure would be nice to meet you all "for real."

Policemen-- when I get upset at bad drivers, my kids are like, "don't worry Mommy, maybe a cop will get him!!" :-) And then they scold Daddy for his driving, warning him that cops do give tickets to bad drivers. Heh heh.

Football- amen to that! But I can't complain b/c my husband watches nothing but football. No other sports, or shows or even the news.

I love all of your comments! Keep 'em coming!
