How we live and love and what we have to say about it, from Mommy Mumblings to Daddy Discourses
Stan and I first met in BYU's weight room. We've been married since Dec. of 2000. 11 years later we're still madly in love and so happy to have each other. We've earned 4 degrees: 2 BS's, 1 MS and 1 PhD. We've lived in UT, VA, MS, and now CA. We love rock climbing, yoga, exercising, reading, writing, making each other laugh, and our 4 beautiful children.
Today at dinner Eliza wanted more vegetables even though she wasn't eating her own. Israel had more you see. So she was complaining and then layed her head down facing away from me. Meanwhile I was busy dealing with crying Julia. I was working on the dishes and Israel was still happily eating when I realized Eliza hadn't moved in a while. She was knocked out cold and didn't even stir when I carried her to bed. It was so sweet. I'm not sure why it touched me, but while I had this warm feeling for my dear middle child I wanted record it here. What a life she has being in the middle. Israel is bigger and stronger and knows more while Julia needs so much more attention. I wonder sometimes if she just needs of Stan and me. She has been struggling going to preschool and Sunbeams recently and having lots of sad crying time. A few weeks ago I was praying and reading my scriptures and worrying about Eliza and what I got was that she needs more of me. When I give her more one on one her moods are so much better. (now to figure out how I can give her more consistently)
