I was looking at my friend Tiffany's blog and I panicked when I saw my name being tagged! You know when your heart kind of jumps? YIKES! I had read through her cute answers and then saw my name at the bottom. Here I am with two 16 year olds that don't even speak to me half of the time!

C telling me he is trying to be like Jesus, K calling me on his cell from across the room, Z getting excited about naming all the countries in Africa in 57 seconds, B coming to find me for a hug and kiss every few minutes, and when all my kids are getting along at the *same* time!
