Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon All together, everyone say.... "awe!"

Ok, I like to share when my daughter does things that makes me seriously consider my worth as a parent. Thoughts such as "if I was a good parent, she wouldn't do things like {fill in the blank the evil of the day}". We all know that is crap, but kids have a way of making you think that way.

There's a lot of great things going on in my life right now, and things like this only make it better (at least for the moment).

Last night when I tucked her in for the 4th time..... she kissed me on the forehead and said, "Mama, when I grow up, can you teach me to be a mom like you?"

:::: wipe tear :::::

I wish I would have had a video camera handy and would be able to show her that clip in 10 years when she screams at me, "I'll NEVER be like you!"

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
