What is it with my kids? They say and do some of the darndest things. My youngest daughter especially. I'm telling you, the girl lives in her own world. And it's a very special and happy world.

The syrup in the bellybutton is the most recent event. It started with breakfast and waffles. She was wearing her bathing suit. She's one of those kids who can't eat anything without wearing it. She gets it from her father. I'm afraid that he is the same way. When she discovered that there was syrup in her bellybutton, you would think that she would instinctively go wash it out. But, oh no! Not this child. It is much funner to show everyone how you can make your bellybutton stick together and almost disappear. Of course, this meant that all the other children had to try do the same thing and when they couldn't, that was when she proudly proclaimed, "I have syrup in my bellybutton and I like it." Yep, she's a special one. Then there's another recent event when the oldest girl was having a sleep-over and the kids were playing charades. Someone had made a guess at what the answer was, the person who was "it" said, "no, but you all just keep hollering out." Well, that was when the cute, young one decided to "holler out". No, not any words, just a nice, cute "aaahhhhh!". It was really quite funny, but I had to explain to her that was not what they meant.

I have a mommy gripe. I'm sure it's not just me. I'm sure that it's every mom. But why? My kids ALWAYS need ME! Dad can be home, standing right in the kitchen and the kids will seek me out and ask me to get them a glass of water. They are helpless and they must also think that their dad is. Here's one of my favorites...."Mom! I'm all done and my butt needs wiped!" When will this stop? OK, I know the answer...when they learn to do it for themselves. And according to the track record, I've got about two more years with the youngest. But why is it that I never hear, "dad, I'm all done and...."?

I have read a few blogs from friends on the forum today. I have always wanted to have my own blog but never knew how/where to start. Of course, I have always wanted to start journaling and have never started that. I can only blame myself for that one. I have purchased the journals, just never sat down to start them. I would like to start a journal for each of my kids, thought that would be nice to have later when they grow up. One day...

So, here I am, my first blog entry. I guess this is a place for random thoughts...

Right now my thoughts are on motherhood. I wish that I could see into the future. I wish there was a way of knowing that I was doing it "right". There are so many varied personalities in my house. Each one needing different things. It is impossible to treat them the same...but treating them differently also seems wrong. I pray for wisdom. I pray for their hearts. I know that so often their hearts are hurt by my actions, my words. They are so beautiful...so fragile.

Father, hold them tightly in your arms and keep them safe...

    Weather, parenting is never easy ... esp. mom's job!! But you are keeping the Lord first in your thoughts and actions involving your kids and that's the best way to start. Kids are great God made kids cute so we would be less tempted to strangle them when we're angry .. j/k j/k

    Oh weather, as you know my four are all grown up with children of their own..I remember being in your position..Continue to treat each one as an individual, God made no clones...for a reason..perhaps so we would learn unconditional love..Maybe I will blog about some of my anger when the kids had me pulling my hair out and screaming into pillows

    Weather.. the fact that you are wondering if you doing "right".. means you are doing "right".

    Dear Weather,
    Everything that you said sounds exactly like me and my girlfriends talking when we used to meet for coffee at Starbucks (before I moved out of state to Florida). We used to say the exact same things. You would be surprised at how many moms say the same thing as you. I felt like I was reading something that I had written. Anyway..I just wanted you to know that someone else can totally relate to what you said, especially myself. When I found City-Data, I was completely new to anything like this and I can tell you that some people that are members responded to many of my postings with words of encouragement that pulled me right through some challenging times. Be intentional about what you want to do and never stop praying, but most of all, keep the faith. Take Care.

    great blog weather. From all I have gleaned from you these past months, I can guarantee that you are doing a fantastic job at mothering your babes. I honestly know where you are coming from and I only have the two. Just stay the course, and keep on praying for guidance and you can't go wrong.

    There's always a first

    when we set our heart free, we would not mind trying new things, even if we would make some mistakes at first.
