A post

May 7, 2012

Yes, I know, its a miracle that I am posting. I always think about posting, desire to post, yet when it comes down to it, I find myself wondering if anyone would really benefit from what I have to say. Gah.

So, my older girls found this lame little journal I kept that would just share good things they would do when they were small. I didn’t write in it for long, but they now cherish it. Tells me that I need to write down stuff my kids do, and since this is my sort of journal, I will be making more of an effort.

Melody makes me laugh on a daily basis. Seriously laugh. She is good for me, I need the snickers. Today, she came in my office, whispering that she had a surprise for me. I took her hand and she said “first thing you need to know, is to be very quiet!” I said alright and she led me down the hall to the kitchen. Then she said “second thing you need to know, be very quiet!”. I smiled and said ok. She led me around the circle that is my kitchen (most of you have been here so you know what I am talking about). We ended up where we started, where she told me “third thing, be very quiet, I have a secret”. Then she led me around the circle four more times… each time going around, she would instruct me to tip toe and be very quiet. The big secret ended up being the new potty seat we have. I don’t know why she thinks it is so cool, or why she had placed it on the kitchen floor, but it made me laugh. I asked her if she would like to go sit on the potty and she said “nope, I don’t want to be a big girl today”. 

Lily on the other hand, is obsessed with shoes. She is at that stage where she knows what she wants but can’t quite communicate it well. She is constantly bringing me shoes, putting on shoes, taking off shoes, walking around in shoes (no matter what size), but if they fall off her feet, watch out, there is a tantrum coming. Still, stinkin’ adorable. 

Melody turns 4 next month, and Lily turns 2 the month after that… where has time gone? 

Oh, and the one thing I haven’t really thought about much today is the fact that it is the fourth anniversary of my hip replacement, no wait, its the fifth anniversary… haha the best part about all of that is that I don’t have to think about it! My hip is pain free! Today is also the 22nd anniversary of my original accident… but I almost didn’t remember any of that. yay.



  1. Hooray for no hip pain, and for exceedingly awesome and uber cute kids! 🙂

  2. Oh, I don’t even remember the anniversary of getting my hip replacement. (I bet Mike does, though. I think it was probably as hard on him as it was on me.) I’ll have to go and look it up.

    Anyway, I’ll always be grateful for YOUR hip replacement, because it helped me so much with mine.

    And I’m really glad about your blogging, and I look forward to reading more about your “uber cute” kids — all of them! (I really love that potty seat story, by the way.)

    • It helps that the anniversary of my replacement is the exact same day as the original accident that was cemented in my mind for eternity…

      I am grateful that I was able to help you with yours… any pain?

      • I had the date, May 27 in mind. When I went to confirm it, yes that was the date, three years ago. I have no pain from my hip, as such. I sometimes get temporary pain around the scar if the skin is trying to stretch but the scar won’t.

  3. i can’t believe your girls are getting so big. i’ve been around for the last two, know. time does fly…

  4. Yayyyy for blogging again!!! I agree, your kids are uber cute! 😀

  5. I don’t know…potty seats *are* pretty darn cool! What would we do without our kids?

    • shhhh! Be vewwy vewwy quiet! The potty seat might be listening!
