A little more about me

I feel like I write about my kids a lot and I know they are the most interesting, the cutest, and just all around more fun than me but I thought I should write a little about myself.

A few of my thoughts on aging;

I am actually liking the idea of getting older. I will turn 29 this birthday and it really does not stress me out like I thought it would. I think that the older I get the more I understand about myself. I don't let things bother me as much and I like to think that I have more wisdom. I truly enjoy my friends and family. I am liking myself more and more the older I get.

My thoughts on the health scares;

I think that if everyone would just do everything in moderation we would all be a lot healthier. There is the soy or dairy debate. At my house we drink both and also almond milk, rice milk, and hazelnut milk. We eat mostly healthy food but we have treats now and then. My kids watch some tv but not all day long. Everything in moderation has become my motto.

My thoughts on being to busy;

I do not function well if we are to busy but I cannot be home all day long everyday so we mix it up. Our standing appointments right now are ballet on Mondays, soup night every other Tuesday, our video series that we are hosting on the alternate Tuesday and that is it. The rest of the time I like to play it by ear. Have friends over, go to the library, take walks, and then all the other things that have to be done to run a household. It is a good balance for us and I am glad to have found it. It is always something we are tweaking but things are working pretty good.

And just a little fun thought,

I have been wondering why the parents at my sons school do not really talk to me. If my husband goes there he ends up talking to someone for a long time. The most I get is a smile and a hi. Then on Friday when I picked up my son it dawned on me that they might not think that I am his mom. It might be that they are thinking I am the babysitter, or something. I get this a lot with my kids but I had not put the two and two together. I have been told many times that I will one day be glad that I look young but maybe that is why I am not upset about getting older. Just a thought.

I just found your blog via IpsoSacto and I am so glad I did! It's great to read about other moms experiencing the same things I am and faced with similar decisions.

(Yes, everything in moderation. It is definitely the key.)

I am with you on the enjoying getting older thing. I like myself becoming more reasonable and less acting on emotion, like I have done so often most of my life. We have found that everything in moderation is what works best for us too. It's easier to go with the flow of life that way!

I was laughing at the last part about picking up kids at school, because this same thing happened to me the other day. When picking up my 5 year old from class, with my other two little ones in tow, I was asked, "do you watch all of them every day?"

everything in moderation is totally the key, i agree completely!
also on your thoughts on busy-ness, nice to have a couple things to count on, but nice to have freedom to call it by ear, too.
and with you & kristin on the baby sitting thing! this pregnancy, no different than last with all the dirty looks from various people who think i'm 15 and pregnant! (if only they knew i've been happily married for over 7 years!) people and their assumptions....
