10 Things I Never Said … Until Motherhood

Out of my 2011 posts, this was rated as the most viewed! Thanks for reading, I had fun creating this list 🙂

10.       “It is not okay to pull down your pants and pee, when waiting in line at Six Flags.”

9.         “I love my minivan.”

8.         “You did go swimming this afternoon, so you don’t have to take a bath.”

7.         “We can maybe go to a Justin Beiber concert.”

6.         “Oops, I only had time to shave one leg in the shower.”

5.         “You are not really the blue Power Ranger. Please stop drop-kicking everything, including your sister.”

4.         “I’m glad the puke is on me, instead of the couch.”

3.         “Do not pee on the floor, the wall or in your room. The only place we pee is in the toilet, and please aim for the water.”

2.         “You cannot eat dinner naked, with only your Batman cape. At least, put on some underwear.”

1.         “I love you bigger than the world.” {literally}

Motherhood is a gift to enjoy, but it is definitely not for the weak!

{Yes, an entire bag of potato chips scattered in our living room as he yelled, "Surprise!"}

Cool Quotes from VBS

We just finished our third day of Vacation Bible School. This is my first year volunteering, and originally, I thought it would a good way to spend time with my daughter. I didn’t really anticipate how much fun, exciting and adventurous it would be!

Every morning feels like a rock concert. High energy, enthusiasm, singing, dancing, ears-ringing, I feel like a kid again. It is awesome. I expected to teach the kids, but God has changed me.

Sometimes I get so caught up in being scheduled and organized, I actually forget to have fun. This week at VBS, though, has really taught me the importance of spending fun, silly time with my kids. They love it, and I do too 🙂

Here are some of the coolest things I’ve heard this week:

5.  “I have a sister and a brother. My sister is human, my brother is a dog.”

4.  A girl said, “Heaven is awesome because you wear cool clothes and you get to eat candy all day long without getting a tummy ache.” A little boy replied, “I want to go there.”

3.  I asked, “What is your favorite thing about VBS?”  A young girl answered, “Worship.”

2.  “No one else can bring my praise but me.” {Lyrics to a song we sang today} I love this and have never really thought about it this way. My praise is unique and special to God, only I can give Him my praise.

1.  “I accepted Jesus today.” {When I told his mom, her eyes lit up with excitement and she gave him a big kiss … very sweet moment.}
