I believe there is a little bit of nerdiness in all of us. In my case, it is a lot. The older I get, the nerdier I realize I am.
Take today for example. I have been wanting to put up a “No Solicitors” sign for awhile. The main reason is that they are just wasting their time, and I am home alone a lot. (I heard a self defense man speak and this was a good precaution). However, I do like to support local neighbors in their fundraising efforts. If a child has the courage to come to my door, it is our policy to purchase from them. It is not the best budget option, but it is important to us.
In my nerdiness, I made my own sign…..that we welcome neighborhood kids but no one else. Additionally, I was introduced to the world of 1000 fonts, so I was even able to get a cute new font for my sign.
I am not sure which is worse: that I actually made the sign or that I thought it was fun.
I hate that I do not blog more, but for some reason, I just do not make it a priority.
I actually want to start keeping a journal. I found a journal from college and it was so fun reading my daily thoughts. The journals I want to keep are to record cool things God does in our lives and the ways He comes through for our family. We have so many cool stories. I also would love to keep a journal for my kids, but I am not sure if I could keep up with that. I may give it a try.
Caleb is such a sweet kid. He always says the cutest things. Until yesterday. He loves to watch Little Einstein’s. He said, “Mommy, June (a character) is so pretty.” I asked, “Is June or Mommy prettier,” just knowing he would say me. He said, “June. June is so pretty.” So apparently, my son prefers brunettes. Who are cartoon characters. I guess it IS cute that he thinks June is pretty, but a mom needs a compliment from time to time. I guess I will stick to getting compliments from Brett.
