Mommy Monday!

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone

I love this quote, I saw it on another's blog and it reminded me of the 1st time I heard it when R was just a little one. I remember thinking, "Wow, that is exactly how it is!"

R is just so rockin' awesome! He is growing up so fast, it's just crazy! I love being his Mom, he is one fun kid to be around...

He is earning money to get an iPod shuffle (see ticker on the side)
Some chores to earn iPod bucks are: Washing dishes, mowing the lawn, cleaning the cars, cleaning the bathroom.

So right now he is washing a mountain of dishes. The other day he asked me if he still had to do the chore even if he didn't feel like making any money that day. I told him, "Yes, you have to do any chore I tell you, if you do it without whining you'll get paid, if you whine you do it for free"

So sometimes I see the "face", but don't hear the whine!

I love to hear that you love being a mom!! sometimes it is so scary! The other night we had tornado warnings and I got all freaked out that a tree was going to fall on our house, or that we would need to make an emergency trip to the basement, so she slept in the hall right outside out bedroom. I love her with an intensity that I can't explain. Your boys sound awsome. It seems like not too long ago when we used to go walking on the long bridge together with R in the stroller! good times!

I love your quote at the end... If you whine, you do the chore for free! I am going to have to use that this summer!
