inspiration

I'm lacking in blogging inspiration right now.  I don't really know why.

I'm motivated to blog...but not inspired on topics.  Does that make sense?  I've had this window open for 30 minutes and have started a few different posts, but didn't get any further a few sentances.

I will tell you, preschool, skittles and M&M's seem to be curing Lily's potty training regression.  She's been accident-free the past few days, including naps.  This is a huge answer to prayer, because preschool gives about a month grace period on potty-training and so far she's passing!

Gracie's chalazion is getting much better!  It continues to scab and drain a bit and get smaller.  We have another follow-up with the ophthalmologist tomorrow.  I hope he's pleased with the progress and tells us it will keep getting better.  He said it could be a few months before it resolves completely; only time will tell.

At what age did you start using deodorant?  I don't really remember.  But all I know is that my 7 and 3/4 year old daughter is developing some body odor.  Granted, she is the size of a 10 year old, but still.  It just seems too soon.  And I wonder when how ballistic she will go when she reads this on my blog one day.  She doesn't really know what blogging is yet or that I post stuff about her on Facebook or Twitter for that matter.

I'm fairly traumatized by this realization.  Firstly that she's growing up so fast, and that this only signals the beginning of so much more.  My friend who has 2 teenage daughters was telling me about a day both of them were crying over life and nothing in particular.  I don't cry.  I don't know how I will handle that in my kids!

That's it.  That's what I've got for now.

Where do you go for blogging inspiration?

  1. My blogging has slowed a bit too. I think when life gets busier we have less time to stop and think. I mainly get inspired through ministry situations I face each day with other people (their stories, etc.) and then whatever the kids are going through. I like your little updates, though; keep em coming :)

    You know, I googled "when kids need to start wearing deodorant" (I was curious myself). Many of the people who asked were parents of 8 or 9 year olds, so it seems you're not alone! Maybe there are some natural ones out there that you could try for her...
