Bugbites, Watermelon, And Talking Cucumbers

Here is a collection of a few random thoughts for the day. Cam and Elly napped for 2.5 and 3 hours, respectively, today, so I got a TON of packing done (someone out there is praying for me) and also had a little time for just myself and my ticking brain. Here's what I came up with:

...I don't believe I've ever really known the meaning of "a dirty bathroom" until I had a toddler boy trying to learn to potty while standing up. Fire hose - yikes.

...My least favorite place in the world to have a bugbite is on my FEET. And I have 5. My normally puffy pregnant feet are now red and allergically swollen as well.

...I'm 30 weeks pregnant today, and I'm guaranteed to go by at least 39. That's not much time, people!!

...I am really, really loving my daughter's desire to play "dress up" right now. She loves necklaces, bracelets, hats, crowns, shoes...you name it. I have visions of a little chest of play clothes and accessories for her Christmas gift!

...Totally unbiased ;), I think my son is one of the smartest 2.5-year-olds out there. His memory is astounding - definitely better than his mommy's.

...We went to the grocery store today, and I prayed over the watermelon I chose - that it would be juicy and delicious! I laughed at myself, but I know God cares about the little things...and it drives me bonkers to spend $5 on a dud. I really prayed over a watermelon...and it turned out to be a fantastic choice!

...While packing today, I found a birthday card (I think from '95) from my Grandpa Beichley - he met Jesus in 1996. On the back he told me how excited he was to see me in my high school activities, and said "Keep being a friend to young and old, and you'll come out shining like a rose." Had a good cry mid-pack. I love you, Grandpa!

...I have developed an extreme fondness for "Bob the Mato" and "Larry the Newcumber," and how much my kids enjoy them. Veggie Tales (recorded from Saturday morning TV) have been a godsend this week!

...We're moving in 4 days. Should I be blogging? Probably not... :)

Happy Friday!

Worst place for mosquito bites: ankles and feet, I totaly agree!
