Day 15: I am Thankful...

that I didn't have all these new gimmicks/techniques to learn math when I was in 2nd grade! They talk about Venn diagrams, Math mountains...what the ?$#!

What is wrong with just adding up the problem with your fingers? That has gotten me by for the past 34 yrs! What sucks is that I want to be able to help Shelby out with her homework but how can I when I don't understand it?? I guess I should then also be thankful for the internet so when I don't understand her homework we can look it up!

I am thankful for...

So I keep seeing on Facebook how people are posting one item they are thankful for each day. I guess I am a few days behind being we are already on Day 14 of November! I do like this idea and should have done it from the start but since I haven't I will come up with 14 items now!!

I am thankful

1. that I am relatively healthy
2. I can dance because it means I have the use of my legs
3. for the roof over my head
4. for a wonderful husband that spoils me even sometimes when I don't deserve it
5. for a well paying job even though I do get frustrated often!
6. for a daughter that is sometimes smarter than me!
7. for wonderful friends that are there for me no matter how crazy I may act!
8. cars that continue to run (though not always the best) and get me from point A to point B safely
9. for being blessed with the people in my life though they may no longer be with me
10. for the memories those people have left behind
11. for music because it means I can hear (though sometimes not very well - I think they call that selective hearing!)
12. for my daughters stubborn streak even though I want to strangle her most days - it means she has a very strong head on her shoulders and won't allow anyone to boss her around
13. for our furry child because she makes us laugh
14. for my pudgy tummy because it means I carried and delivered a healthy baby girl that has made the last 8 years very memorable!

Happy Birthday Shelby!

Where does the time go? Hard to believe that my baby girl turns 8 today. I mean it seems like just yesterday she was crying her head off and....oh wait....that was yesterday! What is amazing is that she keeps getting a year older but I am still 29! :)

Let me tell you the past 8 years have been a real adventure. Shelby in the long run is a great child - smart, pretty, well behaved, funny. However she is VERY stubborn. I still have no idea where she gets that from! We butt heads daily! I just keep telling myself this means she will not let any boys or people push her around as she gets older and that it means she will be some CEO of a large company and make moula bucks and can support Chad & I.

Somedays I think I am the worst mother in the world but then I talk to friends and realize their kids behave just like mine and it has nothing to do with my parenting skills!

Happy 8th Birthday to my amazing baby girl! We love you Shelby James!
