TSW?T: Feeling the Love

They Said What? Tuesday:  Volume 10

Does this still count as a They Said What? Tuesday if I intended to finish it and post it on a Tuesday, but now it is Wednesday?  I sure hope so.  I would hate to rip a hole in the time-space-blog continuum or something.  

I really did mean to get this finished and posted on Tuesday, but I only just got back home about 2 hours ago, and those 2 hours have been full of unpacking the van and starting on the mountain of laundry and trying to figure out which items got shoved in which bags in an effort to just get everything packed up and back home.

Why you ask?  Vacation!  What better answer could there be?  

This is also the answer to the question "Why have you not posted any new blog entries in two weeks?"  Nothing exciting like "I was selected to represent the U.S. on an elite team of underground spies and had to adopt a new identity" or anything.  Just vacation.  

So for those of you who have been wondering, fear not.  I am indeed alive and well, and did indeed survive vacation to blog again.  Surviving the mountain of laundry?  That has yet to be determined.  

My 3-year-old daughter...
"I like you, Mom.  Mom, I love you.  I love you so much I make you happy in your heart."
...what she said to me as she was waking up one morning at the cottage after crawling in bed with me at some point in the night.  I cannot think of a better way to wake up than to that exact sentiment.

My now 5-year-old son...
"I love my sister."
...while they were both laying on the floor playing Mr. Potato Head.  Completely unprompted. Completely out of the blue.  

"Jesus loves kids even more than the grown ups love kids.  Like grown ups love kids to the moon and back 11 times and Jesus loves kids to the moon and back 60 hundred ninety times."

...that is definitely a precise measurement right there.  I think it may also an alternate verse from "Jesus Loves Me" 

As much as I hate to admit it, yes, I do have my own quote for this week, which occurred earlier today.

"Where's Morgan?"
...said in a somewhat panicked voice as I looked around to make sure she wasn't trying to run across the street or away from our group.  It took me a good 10-15 seconds to realize she was, indeed, sitting on my shoulders and I was holding her legs with my hands.  

There you have it, folks.  That pretty much sums up my "mom brain" after almost two weeks of vacation at the beach, along with throwing two birthday parties and attending and celebrating my husband's graduation with his Master's degree.  

Life is busy.  Life is good.  I can't imagine it any other way.  

No matter what they say, You Are a Good Mom.

  1. Kudos to your husband--that's a super accomplishment.

    As for the kid 'on board' even as you search for her--that smacks of too little sleep and some sunburn to boot.

    Glad to have you back.

    1. Your comments always make my day. :) Will pass on the congrats. I think you hit the nail on the head...lack of sleep + sunburn = lack of brain power!
