one womans work...

hi! so lately i have been teaching aerobics a couple days a week at the church and it has been so fun! Can i just say how nice it is to be surrounded by people with good values, language, just everything that you dont find out in the real world. i need more MORMON friends in tally! it is so nice to be working out with all the ladies and have all their little babies running around and playing. totally gives me the FEVER!



something else happened this week that i found interesting and very touching...

my mama and i were in a meeting with an interior designer and her client (who was a young mother with a 6 month old little girl) the baby was on her hip all during the meeting...so cute! anyway, throughout the meeting i was watching the two women... the designer, was talking up a storm, flipping thru books, making all these decisions that were so "improtant" involving the young mothers new house. and then there was this quiet, soft spoken mother, taking care of her child, feeding her sweet potatoes or some other messy liquidy baby food... walking her around the showroom, talking and singing to her. it was just so neat to me to see the contrast beween the life work of these two women. and how even though the designer was the outspoken, more dominating personality, it was the young mother who was really doing the most important thing in the room.

motherhood must be really awesome...

Awwww, that was so sweet. Motherhood is pretty great...when the kids aren't fighting.....or peeing on the floor....or coloring on the walls.....or, well, you get the point. :) Welcome to the blogging world.
