Pudding for Breakfast, Mr. Incredible, and Belly Laughing... Still!

Photobucket






This seemed like a fitting beginning to my "Fess Ups"! Watch Out! I promise this will not be my most articulate, intelligent, brilliant.... but it will be amusing!

- I took the above characters as is to pick up my race packet on Thursday afternoon for my first triathlon of the season. They behaved as dressed in the bike shop, awesome. BUT, upon entering Target, they were angels. Weird.

- I fed my kids pudding for breakfast this week. Yes, I chose the path of least resistance. I couldn't help myself.

- We watched the Power Rangers movie for the first time. I am not sure if I regret it or not yet. I wasn't paying all the way attention. Some of the ninja moves I saw my guys performing were quite impressive and I was grateful they weren't making the fake "swooshing" sounds with their arm movements.

- My youngest has been practicing his adorableness lately. Here are a few pics that struck my fancy from his Mr. Incredible day yesterday




He was sucking milk up his straw then popping his mouth off so it splashed everywhere. He did this several times before I caught him. :)


I love that he still makes a mess... it reminds me that he is still only 3. I love that he is 3. Next week, a montage of one of my other fellas...







 - My race day jitters ---- I have spent the early part of the week doing bricks (2 workouts back to back), freaking out like an emotional train wreck that I am not ready, and now that the race is tomorrow, my brain is muddy with processing the event and taking care of household details and making sure everything I need is packed and and and... here are some photos my mother-in-law took when we went swimming the first time in our wetsuits this week... Don't tell me, I know, I look gorgeous. Spectacular even...

Okay, so maybe not. When I was belly laughing at the computer the kids rushed over to see what was so funny. They took one look at this picture and started belly laughing themselves... Seriously, I am STILL laughing!

God bless your week! Catch up with ya next week when hopefully my muddy brain will have righted itself and I will be a 2 time triathlete. :)

There are no words for how inspired I am by you in that wetsuit. Seriously. Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

I will be thinking of you and praying for you tomorrow, my friend! You are AMAZING!!!

Who am I?

My photo
I am a wife and mother of 3. I have been married to my best friend for over 25 years and our children are 12, 11 and 9 years old. I have struggled with infertility, suffered the loss of a baby by miscarriage, and endured multiple career paths. I have experienced a crisis of faith that shook me to the core and lost a dear friend to a tragic death. I have had a personal relationship with Jesus for most of my life. The Bible and my relationship with Christ has been essential to my surviving and even thriving in my circumstances. I hope you will be blessed by joining me in this process of life. I thank you for showing up to read what I have written.
