Top Ten

While we are in this waiting game, I got to thinking about what made Le and I want to have a family.

"Top Ten Reasons I Want to Be a Mom."

1. Having a kiss, touch and hug that can fix anything.
2. Crayons, markers, colored pencils and not having people stare.
3. Returning to praying on my knees each night before bed.
3. Fruit roll-ups, gushers, and cereal.
4. Teaching how to cook, just like my g-ma taught me.
5. Being taught to see things through new eyes.
6. Having a reason to teach Vacation Bible School/Sunday School.
7. Having someone else in family pictures.
8. Swing sets, swimming pools, and parks.
9. "back to school shopping"
10. Cartoons.

Just stopping by to introduce myself. I love your list. I would add having my husband take pictures of someone besides me. I am definitely full force into the back to school shopping ... just the smell of new school supplies makes me happy. Although, I am not really prepared to entertain that notion yet as I want lots of time with baby before school. I have to say that #1 is my fave and just being called mommy. Aw the dreams, the dreams.

loved them all - also decorating a kids room. so much fun, you get to do things you always wanted to have. haha.

my fave was "having someone else in family pictures." :) we love pics at our house, too.
