You're a Clown!

We are huge fans of Pixar and watch their movies often... Gunnar is rather talented at quoting movie lines and one of his favorite lately comes from a Bugs Life. The scene is near the beginning of the flix when all of the circus bugs are preforming: Slim: What's the point of going out there? They'll only laugh at me. P.T. Flea: That's because you're a clown! Gunnar and I had a conversation yesterday that went something like this: Gunnar: Mommy my belly hurts Me: Why does your belly hurt? Gunnar: Because you're a clown! It is amazing that even at 3 years old Gunnar has so much personality and loves to make us laugh... we never know when he's going to shoot off some random quote, but when he does it's almost always funny... his timing is perfect! Who knows, maybe someday he'll be a comedian...

No More Excuses... I'm Blogging

For months now I have been thinking about starting a blog... I'm a pretty good excuse maker (just ask Thaddeus) so I can always find multiple reasons not to do something. I can convince myself that untrue things are true. For example... I really enjoy reading my friends' blogs because I can see what is going on in their lives and still feel connected even though we've moved away or don't see them very often. But one of my excuses for not starting a blog was that I thought nobody would ever read it... no one is interested in what is going on in my life right? So untrue... I have been reading "I'll Have What She's Having" by Bobbie Houston. The first chapter in her book is called People Need Your Story. She writes "Life is a journey. It has a beginning and an end, and everything that happens along the way becomes your story." She goes on to talk about how we need to share our story with people because you never know who might learn something from what you have or are going through. My point is that I don't care who reads or doesn't read my blog I just want to share my life and if someone can take something from what I'm dealing with then it's all worth it. I am totally excited to blog about what is happening in my world. Being a wife and a mother can be so fun and so hard and I'm ready to grow as I share Life As We See It.
