How about them apples?

Ok, so life as a parent is full of surprises. This we all know. Take for example, surprisingly in my 10+ years as a parent, I've never had to take the kids to the ER. Well, there was one time with Audrey when she was bitty, but for some reason, I'm not counting that time. However, since the beginning of 2010, which was only 15 days ago, I have had to take a trip with a child to the ER on two different occasions. You just never know, day to day, as a parent, what you will encounter.

So I am about to tell you a story of something one of my children told me last night. I will warn you right now, if you don't want to be grossed out, or have a visual image of something you'd rather not....I'd stop right here.

You've been warned.

Before bed, one of my children (who I will not name in order to protect their image, LOL) said to me.....

"Mom, when I wiped my butt there was red stuff on it..."

for a split second I got that mommy feeling of *oh no.......what could it be!!* But before I could continue with the thoughts of what it could be, she continued....

"But then I looked at it and realized it was just part of the peel from the apple I ate today." matter how long you have been a mom, you just are never ready to hear things like that.

Challenge and Change.

Two words I read in a newsletter the other day. Challenge and Change.

That is where I am.

But really, that is where I always am.

I have so much I need to change.
But everything is a challenge to me.
Unless it involves me being left alone, it's challenging.

That can't be "normal". But it is my normal. I don't want to do anything.

Which of course, isn't good for anything.
