~Life of a Mom

This "Anita Renfroe" is amazing!!!! I LOVE to watch/listen to her.

I like the part..."I need some pepto bismal and I wish I had my mommy". She makes me feel good about myself.

My little one was standing behind me the other day and with loving words, a sweet smile, and sincere voice, he said "mom your rear end is growing"!!! K... how do I get mad at a six year old. Do I laugh or do I cry? I smiled back at him and bent down to his level and said with a sweet loving voice (and a forced smile), "You have a happy mommy and that's all that matters not what my rear end looks like!" He said, "OK" and off he ran to play. So I took my rear end out went outside to play...I mean exercise!

This one above I saw a long time ago! It is so true and funny. "Don't make me come down there!" I loved it.

This video below is so inspirational and beautiful. I love being a mom. I want to be a MOTHER WHO KNOWS don't you? Sister Beck is a lovely speaker. It's kinda long but so worth watching.

Ha ha! Anita is so funny. The part your friend mentioned above was one of my favorites too.

And I so want to be one of the "mothers who know." Such a long way to go. I'm trying not to let the guilt I feel for not being one now KEEP me from getting there someday.

What a great post!

PS I love in Anita's video at the end, where a cow flys across the screen and it gives her the idea to eat chocolate syrup & whip cream together! Oh, the influence of the media! LOL!
