Today

I turned 31 years old today and to celebrate, my kids all drew me cards which were nothing short of fantastic! We also went out for pizza together and had a great time. We got a few stares as usual but also a nice comment about how adorable our kids are - very observant people! It was a nice day, although I must admit I did fight the urge when changing poopy diapers or cleaning up spilled cereal, to not feel put out simply because it was my birthday. I think it's that entitlement that so many women are taught to feel, that I'm trying to work out of me. Great day - blessings, celebration, and sanctification!

Kim,
I know! My youngest turns one next week, and this is the longest break I'll have from being pregnant. At first I thought maybe it had something to do with turning thirty, but then I realized it probably has more to do with having four kids already!

Oops! That was me, just didn't realize I was logged in under my hubby's name!

Haha... This is by far my longest break. I am potty training my 2 year old, and I have never had more than one month in 10 1/2 years that SOMEONE hasnt been in diapers. Oh I pray that changes soon.... :-(
