Sunday Citar : Life of a Child


Welcome to Sunday Citar! This blog quote meme was created by Tabitha @ FreshMommy. You can stop by her blog to see the quotes and photos that she and everyone else is loving right now.

One Hundred Years from Now...
It will not matter
What kind of car I drove
What kind of house I lived in
How much money I had in my bank account
Nor what my clothes looked like.
But One Hundred Years from Now...
The world may be a little better
Because I was important
In the life of a child.
I found this in an old, old Bits & Pieces magazine.  No author was cited.

Tell Me Thursday : Perfection

You may have been wondering what knitting needles and a partially completed something or other has to do with perfection.

Well, this something or other is actually going to be a scarf.  Something that newbie knitters start off with as their first project.  Something simple.

Now, this soon to be scarf has many imperfections.  There are a couple small holes where I grabbed to many stitches at one time, but you only notice them if you are looking for them.  This new venture of mine as seen it's many restarts too - at least three with a close call not too long ago.  (Hollywood decided to pull the loops off the needle, fortunately, I was able to thread the needle all the way back through...  perfectly.)

Well, perfection, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.  Honestly, anything, as it's perceived, is in the eye of the beholder.  True?

This scarf has given me ample time to reflect on what my eye beholds.

Having nothing to do with knitting and lots to do with perception and what one's eye beholds...  (ok, I'm done beholding my eye)

I came across a blog sometime ago and the post I read was absolutely hilarious and thought provoking.  It hit home with me.  Big time.  Click here to read, "Half Empty or Half Full?" by Dawn over at Because I Said So.

Having three small children can leave me feeling like Senario Two, although I'd much rather be feeling like Senario One.  And while the chaos may run rampant around here from time to time, I've been choosing to see things differently.

How about you?  Anything that you could be seeing in a different light?

Sunday Citar : Youth



Welcome to Sunday Citar! This blog quote meme was created by Tabitha @ FreshMommy. You can stop by her blog to see the quotes and photos that she and everyone else is loving right now.

Since I cannot locate a good photo with a fave quote, I thought I'd share a couple of fun photos with an intriguing quote.


Age considers; youth ventures. ~Rabindranath Tagore


I'm sure once they get a bit older, their age will hinder this type of behavior, but for now...

By the way... doesn't this look familiar?

So it begins...

I have enjoyed having my children at home with me. Most of the time. I'd be lying if I said that all was hunkie-dorie all of the time here. But, we did what we did when we wanted to do it. Never having to worry about schedules, appointments, deadlines and laundry - Oh. My. Gosh. The Laundry! I'm so glad I found a cheap laundry soap or I'd go broke just to keep clean clothes!

I manage to keep our house some-what orderly, the children, bathed, fed and clothed. Outings to the park or beach were usually last minute, haphazard - 'hey let's go!' ideas that turn out better than something planned.

No schedules meant no alarm clock, unless you count the kids waking you up in the morning asking for cereal cause they are hungry...

and well, um, it is time for breakfast.

Here is the so it begins part...

Now that I've, reluctantly, enrolled them in school, all of that has changed. We now have appointments, schedules and deadlines to keep track of and fit into our family nonchalant lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, keeping up with three active, into everything toddlers, kept me quite busy, but we did everything on our terms. So what if me and the kids stayed in our pjs all day long, on a Thursday. I don't think the school staff would agree that pjs are appropriate attire for school.

Now that school is in session, I feel like I'm constantly on the go... parent meetings, dentist and doctor appointments, homework, yes homework! Oh and did I mention trying to run a business from home too.

Calgon, take me away!

Oh, and speaking of appointments...

Congratulations on a clean bill of dental health from the dentist on Friday! Momma is very proud of each of you!
