Something to Brighten Your Thursday.

I'm having kind of a blah Thursday, with back pain and just exhausted from having a teething baby. My friend sent me this video, and I figured I'd share it with you!

Enjoy! May this bring a smile to your face!!

Moms: Who Am I Now?

I haven't been updating my blog for awhile now, because I'm still adjusting to this whole being-a-new-single-mom-deal. I've been spending enourmous amounts of time with my little boy, doing the grocery shopping for my household and cleaning around the house. I haven't had much time for my blog, but once my son can be on his own without my constant attention (he's also sick right now. poor thing. needs me even more. haha) I'll be able to update this regularly. I have so many posts lined up, I just have to get them finished.

I have a few minutes right now, while my son is sleeping and I just got my Publix Baby Club newsletter in the mail! They have a really cool article in here titled, What Every Mom Needs, Moms ask: Who am i, now? They have a jump-start thinking list and I figured I could fill it out on here. If you'd like to fill this out yourself, go ahead! We do enjoy being mothers, but we need to find an identity that goes past our part of "mother" and reminds us of who we used to be and who we still are, in addition to "mother." (paraphrase from the article)

1. Three adjectives that describe me are....
Charismatic, Clumsy, Caring.

2. My greatest strengths are....
I will do anything for my family/friends. I am very devoted.

3. My most obvious weaknesses are....
Sometimes I care too much, and it gets me hurt or in trouble in the long run.

4. What I want most in the world is....
For my son to have the best possible life that I can over, if not more.

5. If given the gift of a day with no responsibilities, I would....
sleep. in a really nice feathery amazingly comfortable bed.

6. If I received an "outstanding award" in 10 years, it would be for....
Couponing. :P I wanna get better at it! Either couponing or being Bray-Bray's mom. Haha. Can you get an award for that?

7. The one thing I can do this week that will help me to get that award is....
Practice my couponing skills! Looking at the all the ads, finding the best places to buy things for the lowest amount of money. That's what I wanna do!

Well, I hope you guys like this and you fill it out for yourself!
