Our little man Tyler was baptized last month. He was so excited. I think he has a stronger testimony than I do. He has so many people that just love him. How could we all help it?
He is soo...
-thoughtful -full of energy -snuggly -appreciative -excited about life and everything it brings -full of love for his family -full of love for everyone -helpful -fun -smart -willing to try new stuff -honest -kindhearted -and an all around great boy
He bore his testimony last Sunday...
"I'd like to bare my testimony. I know we all have great families." *Rush of blood to the face and hyperventilating* "In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
He was shaking when he came back to his seat. He said, "I wanted to say other stuff, but I couldn't remember. I was too nervous." Then, he snuggled into my side until he stopped shaking from nerves. He must get it from me. I didn't say everything I planned on saying in my testimony, either.
Luke went in to Primary to get the kids out early. He quietly told the teacher he needed Tyler because we were going to his cousin's. Tyler says quite loudly, (okay, he yelled it) "Woohoooo! Superbowl time!" Wouldn't have been so bad if it had just been his class, but Sharing Time, geez buddy!
We need to teach that child a little discretion! "Vagueness Tyler, vagueness. You only tell them what you are really doing, IF THEY ASK!!!"
I guess I haven't taught him everything I know yet!!
Added hillarity, Luke is in the bishopric! Nice example we are setting, right?
Many of you think I am just an unorganized person! But oohhh there is so much more to it than that. It takes a lot of time and effort to be so proficient at procrastination. For instance, do you think I could get the timing of my child running out late to the bus every morning if I gave just a small effort at it? No! Everyone else's kids are waiting at the bus stop up to 10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to be there. That doesn't take any effort! And it uses up valuable time. HA! It takes a great deal of timing to get my child out the door at precisely the moment the rest of the kids have finished boarding. The bus is not here at exactly the same time everyday! Duh!
I have friends who make me look bad. They are crafty, motivated, energetic and full of good ideas. They constantly have FINISHED projects-something I don't even know the definition of. I think it was a great day if I got the kids dressed! So, this blog is my attempt at reverse psychology to motivate myself - or in case that fails it is a good way to gripe at them for making me look bad!
