Well, Goodnight, Irene!

I cannot believe it has been so long since I've posted. These posts were once part of my routine, and now, sadly, they've fallen by the wayside. I think I need to post as much for my own benefit as for my friends and family. Following are random thoughts from the past several months.
-38 year old mommies are more tired than 28 year old mommies.
-It's way too easy to get distracted by the blues in the winter. Praise God for the spring!
-TV watching breeds more TV watching. Depressed folks watch more TV; I vow to cut back - soon.
-Knowing what a problem is doesn't necessarily lead to its solution, but it's a start.
-Babies are fun, but they are work nonetheless.
-Potty training a child who occasionally forgets she's a big girl can be quite frustrating.
-Sleep deprivation is a form of torture. I value a full night's sleep now more than ever.
-Having a child in 3 different developmental stages is challenging.
-Seeing the way you once reasoned in the conversation of your own 10 year old is spooky.
-Children are indeed a blessing from God.
-There are bumps in the road; expect them.
-There are peaks in the path of life, and there are valleys; all windy roads leading to the destination are necessary.
-Children say funny things; they grow quickly, too.
-Life is an amazing gift, but Heaven's going to be even better.
-I love my family.
-I love my friends.
-I love my life.
