{30 Things} Day 1

The other day I saw a link to this fun blog {babymakingmachine}. While perusing I found a list she compiled of 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me.

Because {E} is so small still, she wouldn’t really understand why I wanted to sit her down and talk endlessly about myself.

But I’m sitting here, 27 years old and thinking that as John and I add more children to our family we will add distance between who we used to be.  As I find myself surrounded with more diapers, more toys, more scheduling, and more love, I anticipate that many of my memories of childhood, adolescence, college years, & my time of falling in love will fade.

So I thought I should blog {30 Things} My Sweet Children Should Know About Me. That way, when {E} is 7 or 8 and she wants to know what made me so afraid of bugs, why I LOVE Halloween, how her Dad and I fell in love, or why Mom huffs and puffs when Dad leaves his shoes out it will be easy to tell/show her. Plus it will remind me of myself. Who I was and will always be.
