I was in the Target bathroom a few days ago. I came out of the stall and heard some loud fart noises coming from another stall. I couldn't tell if they were real or not - but they were loud. A mom at the sink said "Miles, is that you making those noises?" A sweet little voice from behind one of the stalls said "noo". A look of relief showed up on the mother's face as she said "oh good." Within a second or two, that sweet little voice then continued on . . . "It was my buuutt!"
Relief turned to pure embarrassment as the mom looked my way. I just smiled at her as if to say "Girl - I've been there one too many times! No worries!" She just smiled back and silently chuckled to herself!
Sorry I haven't been writing much this past year. I started another blog called Drink from the Deep. I have spent more time writing there (though, still not as much as I would like). With 5 kids in 4 schools this year, a bunch of sickness this fall, and other things, I haven't had as much time to write in general as I would like.
So - I may stop by from time to time to share with you. I do still think about all my fellow mothers and all we struggle with, have to juggle, have questions about and more. I love sharing with you what I've learned, what I am still learning, and hearing from you about what's on your heart. Feel free to send me a message if you want. I'd love to hear from you!
Just to let you know where I am at this year with mothering (and life) - my word for the year is Simplicity! I am in the process of purging, reorganizing things that haven't been working well - in the house as well as in raising our children (I am REALLY excited about that!), and more. So keep me in your prayers as we are doing some changing around here! :) But it's for the best!
