If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Happy Mother's Day

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! One of my favorite things about being a mother is listening to all of the funny things my kids say. Sam is doing this a lot lately. This morning he colored me a card and gave it to me and said, "Here is your card for mommies day. It is about a hurricane."

Jack is learning lots of new phrases in Kindergarten (some we could do without) and this morning I heard him in the bathroom saying, "That was totaly Awesome". Only boys!
I can't wait to hear the funny things that Ruthie will come up with. I decided to ask my boys a few mother's day questions. Here are their answers:

1. What do you like best about having a mother?
Jack- "That she is fun"
Sam- "About having my dog?"
What do you think Ruthie will say- "Because she is soooo nice"

2. What is your favorite thing to do with mommy?
Jack- "play at the play ground"
Sam- "play on the roof " (we don't do that by the way)
What do you think Ruthie will say- "Learning letters and sounds"

3. If you could change anything about Mommy what would it be?
Jack- "I don't know"
Sam- "I don't know either. That is a hard question"

4. What do you think mommy's favorite thing is?
Jack- "Going to church" (my politically correct child)
Sam- "Going to Target" (my truthful child)

That's is stinkin' hilarious. I laughed out loud and read this to John. I've got to be sure and document things Ian says when he starts talking more.

Yes, kids say some funny things. While we were driving to lunch, Steve and the kids were saying things about mommy that started with letters from A to Z. "Mom is awesome." "Mommy is beautiful." "Mommy is cute..." and so on. When we got to letter E, CJ (who had previously said mommy is cute) said "easy to get mad." Ouch! True sometimes, but still funny. It was a good reminder! -shannon

Karen- It is probably funnier to you because you know my kids and their personalities. So glad you had a good laugh and I can't wait to see what Ian says too.

Shannon- It seems like it is the younger ones who are more apt to speak their minds. I am sure D was "darn funny".

Iam soo...... gonna miss having Sam in class next year at His Kids.
I cannot help but smile and laugh out loud at some of the things he has said to me this year. Ruthie is going to just love her brothers and have a wonderful life (wait till she starts dating and her boyfriends have to deal with her brothers I can only imagine)
