Which is probably a lot of you, but actually that is completely off-topic so I’m going to veer back onto the road to where I was trying to go…
I always get a tender, sentimental-sort of feeling this time of year. For whatever reason, our biggest changes as a family seem to happen in the spring, and that makes me look backward and re-evaluate where we currently are. It does NOT, however, make me want to scrapbook in any way. Unless you count blogging as scrapbooking.
My first and second children were born in the spring.
We pulled the kids from school to try homeschooling in the spring (2 years ago, actually).
My mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer in the spring almost five years ago. She is now back in chemotherapy as she discovered this past summer that it has metastacized. (Shameless pitch for prayers/positive thoughts/good mojo!)
In honor of spring being a time of looking backward and forward (Oh I’m so random!) I would like to run a series of some of my past blog posts.
For today, here is a post I wrote about parenting from the trenches, when things get tough and you have *no idea* who this child is or HOW you managed to produce it (and I don’t mean that in a good way):
Let me know if you seriously like/dislike this flashback idea…
