- I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

Shiney Blue ribbon! :)
OH I hate when you just hit "enter" and it thinks you have actually POSTED something and then everyone gets an empty screen. UGH!
Well I gave my first toastmasters speech this morning -
Woo hoo for me - I got the "Best Speaker" ribbon!
I'm on a roll this week - my 7 year old gave me a 4 foot trophy with a golden woman at the top and said it was my "best mom" trophy. (yes...he got it out of the neighbors trash - but Hey I'll take those awards however I can get them!:)
Next thing I know - the golden lady is off my trophy and is now the new hood ornament on my 16yr olds truck (truly is an impressive hood ornament) When the 7 year old saw it he looked both in awe and panic-faced because he wasn't sure if I'd be happy.
I just laughed and said "Oh that's okay now everyone in town will know I got the "BEST MOM AWARD!"
win win right?
So....would it be wrong to be totally addicted to this whole Toastmasters thing?
I have NO problem getting in front of people and speaking....
in fact that is one of my dreams "someday" being a professional speaker..
maybe that comes from YEARS of feeling like I'm talking to a huge crowd (my kids) and thinking ..."maybe they're not even listening" or "maybe I'm speaking a different language?!"
I LOVE to sing infront of people - so speaking is just about the same...just without the great rockin guitar breaks :)
With all my heart~
