Why I Blog
I am not as organized as I would like to be.
My pantry and cupboards are always a mess.
My laundry room and closets are piled high with clothes and socks that will never find their match.
And I don't have an organized pile of photos I've printed out and scrapbooks chronicling our family memories.
I'm still a young mother (all of 27 years old), and I feel like NOW is the time I start to write them down.
I'm a fan of the internet, I'm a fan of sharing my photos with friends, and I'm a fan of shared knowledge that can come from reading other blogs.
It has become my desire to store these memories.
It is my hope that one day my children can look back at my past posts and say
"That was my Mom"
And be filled with pride.
I will be honest in my posts. I will not shy away from the truth of my thoughts, actions, or intentions.
I will be unabashedly Christian. And I will not shy away from sharing my love for Jesus and how He is impacting my life.
I will share stories of how I struggle with being a Mother.
I will share tips and ideas I've learned from other wise moms.
It's my hope to share my heart with my family, and it's my hope to be an example to my children.
I want them to be able to remember me through my words and pictures.
I blog to share my heart. And that's what I plan on doing!

~Yes, the two partially undressed children are mine.~
And "thank you". I know I look like a movie star.
So here's my top 10 ways to add a little chaos spice to your playdates.
10. Just add markers.
9. Have only one of something.
(anything from a Batman toy to a piece of string)
They will ALL fight over it.
8. Suggest you stay indoors on a nice day.
7. Have a precious lego castle your boys have built.
(It will get torn down. Drama will ensue.)
6. Have a pantry stocked with foods you do not want them to eat.
(Because they will try)
5. Try to attempt a craft with glue.
4. Try to make it a productive playdate.
(Like mom's trying to plan something)
It is guaranteed you will get nothing done.
3. Hold the playdate in a public place. Your best bet is the library.
(You might even get kicked out. Because that sounds like fun to me.)
2. Just add sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.
1. Have at least 6 kids aged 5 and under. Always a stressful delightful time.
