being 2

bug sure is good at being 2. here she is on the swing ~ her favorite activity. who knows why she is mad. her shoe is dirty, she wants to go SO HIGH, she wants a new shirt since these dora pjs she had to have on a few minutes earlier are NOT her zebra pants. i love it. you never know what you are gonna get. she keeps me on my toes.

back when i was single i had this really great apartment. it was really cute, and decorated awesomely. {love that word} they even used it as a model to show potential tenants. it was clean, organized, and just mine.

i loved least i thought i did.

now i am married and a mommy to the sweetest little girl. i have a new place to live. it isnt clean, it isnt organized and it is ours. not mine.

~ i would rather have a messy house and a full heart than a clean house and an empty heart

being her mom

i hope i am a good mom to my bug.

this past christmas my mom gave me a calendar with quotes for each day. on january 15th i read this:

"It will be gone before you know it. The fingerprints on the wall will appear higher and higher. Then suddenly they disappear." ~ Dorothy Evslin

i want to appreciate each day.

getting messy while she learns how to feed herself

eating an entire ice bream bar that resulted in chocolate all over her, her clothes and her stroller

playing in the mud getting her socks dirty

getting tissues everywhere

tattooing her legs :)

splashing in the water until all her clothes are soaked!

getting on the counter so she can get it "by herself"!!

playing with mommies stuff

not getting angry about writing on things she shouldnt bc she has not learned that yet

i love this little girl. she makes me laugh every day! i hope she loves me as much as i love her. enjoy this video of her being exactly who she is!!

i swear the more i learn about what is going on in this world the less tolerance i have for ignorant people. the less tolerance i have for selfish, self centered people. i know Jesus calls us to love others but i also feel like he calls us to call people out on their issues too.

i am sure there are lots of specks in my eyes but lately i have been so disgusted with peoples behavior.

today alone i removed a friend from facebook bc of some of his ignorant status updates. 2 days in a row he has been insulting to not only me but to so many of the people in this world who are already fighting an uphill battle.

i follow a mom on her blog as well as her twitter. her child is very sick. today she twittered such a selfish self~centered comment that i was actually shocked that it came from her. bc her child is sick her blog has become very popular. bc of her popularity she no longer seems to have time to answer peoples questions about her. sad.

anyway i just needed to rant. i cant believe some of the horror that is going on in our world and some people are worried about the stupidest things.
