Differences in Moms & Dads...

This weekend we took a road trip to visit my husband's alma mater and go to Homecoming. Keep in mind we have not ever (ever as in being 9 years) gone to Homecoming but this year we "HAD" to go. So we went. Not that we talked to anyone, we sat there and watched a not so exciting game. I often wonder about the differences in men and women. For women they need to socialize and show off the kids and not pay much attention to the game. Men they feel if they have children they need to sit and did I mention sit. It appears taking the kids is to much effort. Go figure.
Then on Saturday we went to the Precious Moments Chapel near Joplin, MO. I will never tire of seeing the beauty. Of course we had the kids so I was also a nervous wreck, did you ever notice all the breakables. Again I wonder would I enjoy it as much by myself or is it the wonder in my kids eyes that make it all worth while. If I was a guessing woman I would place my bet on the kids. They do seem to make the world open up and see it in such an innocent view.

Where to start....

As I sit here composing my first blog I wonder if I have lost my mind. I have sworn over time that I would not blog. Heck I can't even remain consistent with Journaling and that is for my eyes only. I wonder at times if I really want my thoughts and words out there for the world to see. Then again I think maybe I am getting a bit to deep even for myself.

My life is not terribly exciting. I am married and a mother of 4. Our lives are generally hectic and always on the run. My children are 18, 16, 6 and 4--Robby, Dennis, Sydnie, Bridgette. My husband and I both work full time. My husband, Tim, actually averages more like 64-72 hours a week at work so during those moments I am a single mother. Thankfully our marriage is strong and we support one another 100%.

Okay, this is my start. We'll see where it goes from here!!
