"No experience is ever wasted. Everything has meaning." -Oprah Winfrey
I'm not an Oprah kinda girl, but I did glance down at this coffee sleeve on my Starbucks cup this weekend and loved this message. Every now and then, it's nice to unexpectedly be reminded of our focus in life and evaluate whether or not we are truly living as God would have us to live...
Soaking in every moment of life.
Here lately, I have really truly been trying to do that. But we will just save the rest of this message for another day;) Onto my mommy ramblings...
As a mom, some weekends are surreal in that you turn around and you wonder where your baby has gone. Okay, okay, I guess that's an everyday thing...but this weekend definitely classifies as one of those weekends. Pretty sure I have a one year old going on at least eighteen here.
I really don't know where my baby went this weekend. We went to the pool for the first time this summer, and took a gamble with the "Puddle Jumper" (as he loathed the life jacket!) and wa-lah... After an attempt to hit the road Jack, (he was heading for the highway, y'all!) he fell in love with his cold first summer swim. Brrrrr Rabbit!
See the blue lips?
We're talking this cutie straight up jumped off the sides, walked off the diving board, and practically continuously begged to go back in though he was as blue as a popsicle and shivering all over! I love this little ham.
On a completely random side note...we have GOT to work on this baby's table manners! He was a filthy animal when we went out to grab a bite to eat after the pool. Turning over drinks. Grabbing rice and shoveling it in his mouth by the fist wads. Chucking lemons across the restaurant and gracing us with his caveman call. AHHHHHHH! Any advice? I'm guessing a smack on the hand and firm no (well, a Cassidy "no"-aka chipmunk tone) is not going to be the answer. This could get ugly...
Happy Four Days Til' It's Friday Again!:)
