You know what is funny? Although, I get frusterated and tired, I just LOVE having a child around me at all times. B has taught me so many things that I just don't think living in a world of adults, you really get to experience.

  • He makes me realize his laughter is the best medicine.

  • He makes me think of new ways to laugh.

  • He makes me think about how learning new things everyday is an important part of a day.

  • He makes me thankful for everything that I was never thankful for, like groceries and time, and beautiful weather.

  • He makes me smile, just when his little face popps in my head.

  • He just makes me happy, in general

I think children enter our lives, because for most of us, it is a reminder of such a happy time. They make you remember all those amazing adventures you experienced as a little one.

This Friday, Mr Man and I, and some girlfriends and their kids, are all headed to a pumpkin patch. I mean, remember the last time you went to a pumpkin patch... without a child? I sure don't.

Tonight, I am just so thankful Mr Man has entered my life and for all the daily joys he brings. I wish I was rich and could have a brood. His first smile and first experiences make me truly appreciate the wonder of God.

I seen a little sticker that said "Being a parent is the only way to experience Heaven and Hell at the same time". My son can make me SO mad sometimes and othertimes he lights up my world and makes me the happiest person! I wouldn't give him back for anything! I thank God everyday for trusting me to raise him, even though sometimes I don't known what he was thinking!!! :)
