8 Years....

Yes, I'm a day late...but that's pretty much the story of my life this week. Yesterday, June 9, 2009 was Darrin and my 8 Year Wedding Anniversary. Some days it seems like it's been 20 years :-) but most days it seems like yesterday that he and I started this thing called 'married life'.

If you would have asked me 12 years ago (which is when I graduated from college) where and what I'd be doing in 2009...
I would not be married
I would not be living in Wichita, KS
I would not have 3 children ages 4 and under
I would not be a stay at home mom
I would not spend my days picking up the same thing off the floor 257 times
I would NOT be driving a mini-van
I would not think that trips to the zoo would be fun
I would not think that every store in the country should have a drive-thru...including the grocery store when all you need is a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread
It would not take me 45 minutes just to put my shoes on and get out the door
I would not be shopping at Sam's once a month buying 6 containers of Similac and a box of 152 diapers
I would not think that popsicles could cure ANY illness
And I most certainly would not be blogging because what on earth would I blog about????

Thank the Good Lord above that I met Darrin and he convinced me to marry him 8 years ago. (yes, it did take some convincing...:-)...just kidding Big D:-)...I love you) My life would have been TERRIBLY boring had I not said 'YES'. I would never give up this oh soooo good life.:-)
(.....although it wouldn't bother me to give up picking up the same toy 257 times a day....)

On another note, my poor baby boy is teething and I just couldn't resist posting this picture of him holding onto a bottle of baby Tylenol. It's as if he's saying, "You take it away, you die!"
