5 weird things about me! -Taylor tagged me


Number 1- I talk for my animals! All of our pets have a distinct voice and their 'own' personality! (I know it's strange!)but I might say something like "ma I have fleas"It cracks the kids up and I hope to pass down this trait that I learned from my own father.(Taylor assures me this is one she will not take up)

Number 2-I drive around in cemeteries looking at head stones..I always remind the kids I want them to come visit me alot when I die...(it really makes you stop and think of the very short time you have on this earth)although it drives my older kids crazy.

Number 3-I sleep with a fan over head,a portable fan next to my bed blowing on me,a very loud sound machine and a Louis L'Amour cowboy tape...plus my hubby rubs my feet to help me get to sleep..(I know high maintenance)

Number 4- I can-not listen to people talking on call in radio shows or people on the news that their interviewing. I get so embarrassed for them....

Number 5- I love having a large family!I love not having a minute to myself not even in the bathroom. I love carrying on three conversations at once. I love who I am when I'm a mom...I love not working and not having to put on makeup every single day because my kids love me with it or without it... I love my bed because it stays full of all these little miracles...I love my table when it is full of food and kids.( We are in the market for a bigger table for our newest little one.) So I guess from the world's standards I have given up the lie that I should be working outside the home putting my children in day-care and letting someone raise them so I know I"M VERY WEIRD.....

I am so thankful that God placed me in your path, and that He told you that I belonged with you. You are a great wife, an awesome mom, and a Godly lady.

I just love you to pieces and I so agree with all of your thoughts on motherhood and large families. I hope God continues to bless me with oodles of kiddos. Your nighttime habits remind me a little bit of Bethany. She is such a high maintenance night time girl too.
Love you. Can't wait to see you.

Great post. You aren't weird at all (unless I am weird and thus we are both weird!). I talk for animals as well, and my mom has been talking for her babies, and now their foster babies, since my older brother was born. I also love big families. I can't imagine growing up in a family that only had one or two other siblings, or raising only a few children. It would be way too quiet and boring! I understand that everyone can't do 10 kids, but children ARE a blessing, and 6 really don't have to be overwhelming if they are being raised correctly (like you are doing ;-)
