"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Adventures in Mommyhood

Antne and I are having a fantastic time with our ward Robin. And what's frightening is that she actually appreciates our sense of humor and makes jokes with us. And they're hilarious, which means that we are indeed 14 ourselves.

Anyways, I'm taking my ward role very seriously. I enforce bedtimes, I make sure she bathes, I make sure she has lots of food groups in her lunch (almonds, apple, turkey sandwich, cookies, granola bar AND fruit leather!) and has not only a napkin, but a wetnap just in case, too!

I even helped with homework. And coached her on her sides!

That loud clicking you hear is my biological clock.


  1. I HEAR YA....whenever I am around kids I stare and smile longingly for just a little too long...oh no and I am 22! haha



Play nice.
