I was just surfing through some of my favorite blogs, and I came across this blogging challenge. And since one of my blogging resolutions was to add more personal content, of course I decided to participate. Since I just found this I am 4 days behind, so I am just going to do all four prompts today and catch up that way.
I think that my life really began when I turned 18. I got my first job at Food Lion and met a boy named Aaron. We dated for around 8 or 9 months, but through him I met Adam. After Aaron and I split up, I started dating Adam. After awhile, we got serious and moved in with each other. A few months later, I got pregnant with my oldest daughter, Haley. When I was about 8 months pregnant, we decided to get married. We got married on December 22nd, 2005. I had Haley on February 23rd, 2006. When Haley was a little over a year old, I got pregnant with Amberly. She was born on August 30th, 2007. I then just lived life. Taking care of my children. Fast forwarded to now. Last year, I got pregnant with Jedediah and suffered his lost. I buried him on Easter. A very short time later, I found out that I was pregnant with Cayden. He was born in January and is truly my miracle baby. We are in the process of buying our house. This is just a very short version of my life, but hey I like to focus on the good I have experienced.
Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at.
I am very good at pulling my hair out. My girls are 18 months apart and I am not lying when I say it is like having twins. They want the same thing at all times. They HATE to share with each other and it is like the world has ended or split wide opened if one has something that the other doesn’t. Yesterday was the perfect example of how I am an expert at pulling my hair out. We were waiting in the car on my husband (he had ran inside the game store to trade in some games) and I thought it would be a great idea to draw them each a little note. On Amberly’s note I did big bubble letters. I wrote: I love you. Drew a dog and some hearts and gave it to her. On Haley’s note I also did the bubble letters, and wrote: I <3 (that is a heart) U. Drew some hearts and signed Mommy. When Haley saw that hers was not the same as Amberly’s it was on. She started screaming and crying. Telling me that her note was stupid and didn’t make sense. I was in a car…a car that was being filled with loud screams and whining. I think I have a bald spot now.
Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable.
~Being put on the spot.
~Being brought into a fight.
~Being caught in a lie. We all have been there.
Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, ect) and why you love it
Well, I can’t say that this is a favorite quote, but it is a quote that I live by. My mom taught me this:
It is better to be safe than sorry.
I love this quote because it is true. I always think this when it comes to my children. I would much rather be safe than sorry. For instance, when baby boy started to get sick. I KNEW something was going and took him 3 different times to either the ER or his doctor. FINALLY, after his episode of turning blue on me, Children’s Hospital found the problem and performed the surgery he needed. They told me they were so glad that I kept bring him in to be seen because it could have been fatal and I clearly knew that the previous diagnose was not right. Thank heavens that my Mom taught me this!
