Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm....

Didn't know what to blog about today so I am "stealing" this idea from a friend... http://ascapecodturns.blogspot.com/2010/03/things-that-make-you-go-hmmmmm.html

Sometimes things happen in the world that make you think, hmmmm..... Let's review this week so far...

* The Mater Cleanse is a crazy inner body cleanse that one should stay close to home while doing... Really, it is crazy. But I do feel better. Made it 5 days, will start again on Monday 10 day goal...

* Wondering if our 15 yr old daughter knows how to count... She is having a birthday party in 2 weeks, I said maximum 50 kids... Just checked her FaceBook, it is closer to 75...

*Realizing you are cutting the cord with one of your children to let them make decision for themselves is rewarding:)

* Teaching Abby to drive... Told her to put the car in reverse and the wipers went flying across the window, then she jacked on the turn signals both direction... OMG, this is now Kurt's department...




*Seeing Brock play lacrosse and seeing a bit of aggression coming out, he is such a sweet kid it is good to see some toughness.

* Looking at my "baby" and seeing a 20 year old in an 11 year old body, well almost 12. She might be my biggest challenge...



* Knowing we are doing a good job parenting when our kids want to hang out with us. Really they do!

* Seeing Kurt stress out the past few days makes me realize he is human after all...(Mr. Chicken Soup for the Soul). Usually me that is the stress case...

All in all is has been a good week with a lot of progress.

Good for you! Good luck with the driving. I had been leaving that to Alan but he's got no time these days. NOT looking forward to this!

Don't envy you on the driving thing.... So not ready for that!

And you are both excellent parents with great kids!

And as long as the lambies live, your um 20 year old/12 year old will be fine!
