OK, OK, I give in. This whole blogger thing is wonderful, annoying, mesmerizing, and of course, entertaining. I have followed a few blogs over the years and have always thought, "I should do that someday... but not today." But now several people in Tom's family are doing it, and I just can't stand to be left out.
Actually, my #1 reason for wanting to do this is I am a horrible journal keeper. I have felt a nagging in my stomach for years about it. I don't think I've ever taken the time to record milestones in my children's lives. I fail to record adorable, laughable, comments from my three year old. Now they are gone forever in the cobwebs of my cluttered mind, and that makes me sad. Elder Ballard said in his conference talk last weekend that the joys of motherhood come in moments, so this will be my attempt to watch for and record those moments. So unless you're a grandparent, aunt, or uncle to my children, I'm not sure how much you will enjoy this humble blog. But here it goes.
