the ponderings of a mother

These are the ponderings of a mother in love with her children, both in my arms and in the grave. Some of these ponderings are quite emotional, some are funny, others contemplative and spiritual. All are sincere. May these writings bless you in many ways and bring you closer to the one, true God and Redeemer of all things.

Top 8 Signs of Sleep Deprivation

8. You lose your keys somewhere …in Home Depot…

7.  When you start brushing your teeth you realize you have your  husband’s toothbrush already in your mouth L

6. The random, rhythmic mono-syllabic word-songs you sing to entertain your baby (think do dee dah type stuff) begin to make the words “leaky bum” in them, revealing the depth of your subconscious thoughts. (this one specifically goes something like " uh leaky bum, dooty, dah, dee, pee pee").

5. You sing those same songs in public out loud for an indefinite amount of time before realizing it. May I re-emphasize the out loud  portion of that sentence? 

4. A full week and a half after your husband’s birthday, you finally make his birthday cake…

3. At the store one afternoon numerous people tell you your baby girl is “such a cute boy” but you are too tired to care. It elevates as numerous people begin commenting at that moment about the boy, they begin telling her she is “such a stud”, but now it is too late (and you are too tired) to correct the situation.

2. You are already in bed and your husband comes and asks why his toothbrush is soaked and yours is dry. Yes, you have used his a second time, this time finishing the entirety of the brushing experience and never noticing.

1. You leave the store, load the baby in the car and proceed to the passenger side of the vehicle…except you are the only adult with you…

 Reason for sleep deprivation

What? I am just chillin' with my papa.

I am such a big girl in my walker...

...we use the word "walker" loosely :)

Cool and old school. 

Tummy time in my new nursery.

  1. RE: #3 - I've always thought those baby headbands look silly on a usually bald head, but they do serve a purpose. GRAMPS
