Facebook Updates

I had a number of Facebook statuses running through my head today that I never got to.

I’d rather not sit and fill up everyone’s wall with my random thoughts from the day, so I figured I’d blog it. I should blog more anyway. You know what I found when I gave up Facebook for Lent? I blogged more. Because instead of little one-liner snippets on Facebook, I combined all my daily thoughts for a blog. Perhaps more useful in life … perhaps not. Maybe it’s just interesting, but whatever. I digress.

Random updates from today that I didn’t get around to typing out on Facebook:

I sure wish Joshua would learn to say “mommy.” I mean, it’s super cute that he calls for “Daddeeee” all day, but sheesh, come on kiddo, I’m right here!

Welcome back, T-zone skin. I sure didn’t miss you when I lived in perfect world AKA Colorado. 

A little boy (6 y/o) at the park asked me if Joshua was my baby. When I said yes, he said “How old ARE you?” as his 4 1/2 year old sister simultaneously said, “I thought you were the babysitter ….” NICE. 

Open gym night at the Y was a GREAT idea! Credit–me. šŸ™‚ 

I decided today was the day, of all days, to make Joshua eat his dinner. We had to try three times, with many tears, and even a time out (which he still doesn’t understand …) And at the end of the day, he ate a few bites of his hot dog. My reward? A sleepy baby boy who smells of hot dogs. Kinda gross. But pretty sweet. 

Holding a 1 1/2 year old into place in timeout while gripping the timer and watching him frantically sign “All done” is rather depressing. The job of a mommy ….

How important is a good conversation with a great friend? Super. Super important. 

The 4 1/2 year old girl at the park asked me when my baby is going to grow up. I told her he does a little bit every day. As she ran home for dinner, she said it was nice to meet me and she hopes my baby grows up soon. 

Josh watches the Ezra Church video at least 6 times a day. Before it even ends, he’s signing, “More! More!” and today he figured out that he doesn’t need Mommy. He just hits space bar and it plays again. And again. and againandagainandagain……

I keep wishing I had more restraint and discipline with finances. I do this often–get all geared up to be better about watching spending …. and then I realize I don’t know how. Same with eating right …. blah. 

Working out is fun. I should do it more often. So is baking. And dancing with my son. And laying in the grass. And laughing with my husband …. why don’t I do these things more often? 

Yesterday, I did my devotions in the bathroom. Cuz there is where I found a minute of peace while Joshua played with the bubbles in the tub. God understands …. 

I could go on …. aren’t you glad I didn’t put all this on Facebook to fill up your wall? šŸ™‚
