The Kid Maniac

When I’m not knitting, this what what keeps me busy: Raising 6 home-schooled kids.

Wait…there’s someone missing!!!

My heart actually stopped for a minute when I got ready to ask my son to grab my camera and wondered where my little girl had gone! OH YA, I was nursing her!! It’s one of those “am I getting Alzheimer’s” moments! (like when you are talking on your cell phone and scouring the house FOR your cell phone until you finally realize the facts and feel completely ridiculous!! ~ ESPECIALLY when you DON’T realize it on your own and ask if anyone’s seen it and hear, “you’re ON it, Mom!!!” haha)
Multi-tasking Mama. Devotions and reading to my kids and nursing my precious little 2 year old.
I DID knit this morning (or COURSE) and am working on a sweater for my daughter. I am doing a “Random Ravelry Post” about it that I will publish when it’s done, but this is what I have so far…
Using up lots of wool scraps!!
So after I talked with the kids about a few things I had on my mind and read a few scripture verses to back up my convictions, I read more of this book that we are reading…
I’ve read it before and will read it here and there through the years because it helps me remember how great a quiet & simple life is! I think everyone should read it!!
It talks about Henry and his family and how their simple life ends up not so simple as society progresses. Whenever I read it, I think back to the way life was when I was a kid. I shared a few stories this morning about how we used to sit at “Bernard’s Market” in the carts in the entryway and talk for hours. We’d say, “the next man that comes in you are going to marry someday” and in would walk and old man with a cane and we’d all giggle!! There was a soda machine in the middle of the entry aisle and you’d crank the lever and your glass bottle of pop would come down and you’d pop off the cap with the silver cap remover thingy on the machine. Oh, the simple days when there were no cell phones, hand held games, etc.
Anyway, I love gathering my kids around the table to re-group and get our focus on the Lord. I was blessed this morning that my baby girl decided to leave her waffles & banana and snuggle up with me. She nursed a while and fall asleep…
Ahhhh… a nice quiet morning to blog and then get a few dishes done while she does this for a while…
Have a wonderful day and remember to keep a lookout for upcoming contests and fun giveaways!!!
And remember…
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31

  1. TOO FUNNY! I've done EXACTLY that. So glad I'm not the only one! And my daughter recently reminded of another incident when she said, "Remember when you asked, 'Where's William?' and you were changing his diaper?!"

  2. Henry and the great society is such a convicting book. Really makes you think about what's truly inportant.I have done the same thing with the children! Lol how frequently I will say "where's Matthew?" all in a panic and will be told, he's holding our hand mom. :pLove the pictures of your little nursling. I have a little sleeper on my lap as I type this. 🙂 Tara
