What I Know

Here is what I know: I know that in the upcoming Presidential election that regardless of who is elected, no one truly wins. This is a year where I really feel like our country is screwed either way. So, it becomes an issue of which candidate will make you feel more like a one night stand the next morning: each candidate promising the world the night before and the next morning he is no where to be found.

Here is what I know: There is disaster after disaster. Earthquakes, flooding, fires, and more. If ever there was a time God seems to be trying to get our attention, now looks like it might be that time. I can't help but wonder how much more of our perverted society God is going to take before he decides enough is enough. You can only be mocked for so long.

Here is what I know: Right now I am totally content with two kids. When my daughter was my son's current age I had a strong itch to have another baby, thus my son. I have no such itch right now. Two might be it for us.

Here is what I know: Being a stay-at-home mom is the most underappreciated job I can think of. No other job are you asked to sacrifice so much of yourself for the sake of your employer (in this case, my children), work 7 days a week, 24 hours a day (maybe 19 if you actually get 5 hours of sleep. I know I don't but I hear some moms actually do), get no vacation time, no lunch break, no bathroom break, and no pay. Ask most moms though and they wouldn't trade it for the world.
