I'm Tagged

Hi, it's Kristen. What's that? You already knew that? Well, just you wait...one of these days it will be Jill herself, then you'll really be surprised and glad too, because that will mean, Matthew is home!!! "We're praying and rootin' for you Matthew! Keep up the good work, little buddy!"

I tagged Jill in a recent post of mine. And how funny that is because it means I get to post it for her!! Yay! It's like playing tag with yourself, almost. Haha.

Oh, oops, I almost forgot, this isn't my blog...hehehe. Jill, I will stop all my silly nonsense right now, post your words, and then get to bed.

I promise I will stop using your blog as a source for purging all my silly ramblings.

Ok, I stopped now. :)

Words from Jill:


Kristen, my good friend who's been updating my blog for me, recently tagged me as an authentic mommy. I am supposed to tell what makes me an authentic mom. While I never think of myself as such, I'm just doin' what i do because I love my kids. Today I recieved an email from my uncle-in-law (is that a word?) and I loved it. To me, it describes what a true mom is. I'm not one of "those moms", you know, the mom who has it all together with a neat house, well groomed kids, nails done, and make-up on. Far from it! I'm lucky to get a shower and shave my legs in the same day!!
I've changed the words slightly, and here is what i believe to be an authentic mom:
Authentic Mothers don't eat quiche;
They don't have time to make it.

Authentic Mothers know that their kitchen utensils
are probably in the sandbox.
Authentic Mothers often have sticky floors,
Filthy ovens and happy kids.
Authentic Mothers know that dried play dough
Doesn't come out of carpets.

Authentic Mothers don't want to know what
The vacuum just sucked up.
Authentic Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'
And get their answer when a little
Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Authentic Mothers know that a child's growth
Is not measured by height or years or grade...
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...


My turn to tag: I tag Sherri
, Beth
, Diane
, Michelle
, Carla
and my own mother (even though she doesn't have a blog; she is an authentic mom!!)

What a fun poem to read.

I do LOVE myself some quiche though. I made it for dinner once, yes only once, and it didn't go over to well. The children refused to eat it! I thought that they would love it. You know, it's mostly eggs and all....in a pie crust! I thought they would love that part. But no. They would have nothing to do with it.

Oh well....I tried!

Take care :)
