Thankful Thursday

It's that time again!

  • I'm thankful that my son will finally be getting some speech therapy to get him talking! (I'm also thankful that all his other skills are at or above par.)
  • I'm thankful that despite the fact it always looks like a bomb went off in my kitchen when hubby gets home from work, he still loves me and wants to keep me. :)
  • I'm thankful that my son slept ALL night, two nights in a row, with NO binkie!! Woo hoo!
  • I'm thankful that the FedEx guy that just delivered a package didn't ring the doorbell (which would have likely woken up a napping little dude).
  • I'm thankful that this crazy, hectic week is finally nearing the end.

Prettiest Fall Foliage Drives

Fall is my most favorite time of year so I thought I'd take a quick moment to post this link. I can't wait to go on some family fall drives, decorate the house with warm decorations, and smell the smells of pumpkin pie, apple spice and cinnamon. Mmmmm... I'm feeling cozy just thinking about it!

Uh oh...

I just did the math: I'm 4 months away from the end of my 2009 Fifty Book challenge and I have only read 18 books. That means I have 4 months (less, really) to read 32 books. Can it be done? I wonder if Goodnight Moon counts...

September is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month

In July of 2003 I had pre-cancerous cells removed from my cervix. In 2006, my friend became a cervical cancer survivor. We are both thankful that we went for regular, yearly check-ups. Please make sure you do, too.

Friends tell friends how to prevent cervical cancer.  Learn how at

Things I've Learned Since Becoming a Mother

  1. If travelling with your entire family, ALWAYS get the travel insurance.

  2. Only take your toddler to playgrounds that are parent friendly; following your child up and down climbing structures while hunched over because they're designed for someone who is only two feet tall is just not fun.

  3. A mother's gut is always right (no matter what daddy thinks).

  4. The whole "nap when baby naps" suggestion doesn't work.

  5. Always plan to leave the house at least 15 minutes earlier than you think you need to leave the house.

  6. Don't plan on ever being on time again. Ever.

  7. Your child is not like everybody else's. (No matter what they think.)

  8. There can't possibly be any feeling better in this world than an unsolicited hug from your child.
