From the mouths of babes

Seems like I've had that title before - maybe because my kids say honest things or because they say funny things - either way...this was an honest one.

My oldest asked me the other day "Mom, why do you watch the bachelor?"  I replied "I don't know - I guess its entertaining."  His response "Well, didn't you say he wasn't even a Christian?"

He's right.  Why would I watch it if I wouldn't want my own children to do it - to be apart of that - to be "dating" 24 women/men all at one time.

It just goes to show you that what we do makes much more of an impact than what we say.

PS - I will no longer be watching the Bachelor :/

Its worth it

From the title, you would think that this is going to be some deeply motivating blog - well, you might be wrong.  Deep in the sense of me asking myself "what am I going to do with this one?"  So here's the story - the other morning Rileyn was in the bathroom with me while I finished up getting ready for school.  She was attempting to fix her own hair.  Side ponytail.  She couldn't quite get all of the hair up.  I told her to lean to the side and it will make all the hair fall over.  She did for a little bit then stopped.  She got frustrated doing it her way.  Then she leaned over again and said "It hurts my side to do this, but it's worth it for cuteness."  She is 6 people.  What in the world.  If you know me well (which I'm guessing you do if you are reading this) then you know this is NOT how I am.  Plain.  Simple.  Very minimal makeup hair etc.  I like fashion.  Don't like shopping for fashion but I like outfits and such.  But this - COME ON!

Where I Belong

This is my new favorite song. Building 429 "Where I Belong"  I know its not "new" but I heard it for the first time this weekend and really like it.  As Christians, we are called to be in the world not of the world.  As humans, we try to fit in - the right clothes, the right school for our kids, the right job, the right friends and so on.  I am guilty of it.  I don't want people looking at me and thinking I am weird - but shouldn't I.  I should have something different that people notice.  We are called to let our light shines - to be different.  Read the words, then google the song and watch it and listen to the words and the music- its really good.
