i've been tagged.....




i've been tagged by my friend dai, i'm supposed to tell you 7 random things about myself. here it goes...

1. i LOVE reading. i can usually finish off a book in a day or two. with three kids people always ask me how i have time to read. well, usually at night when the kids are in bed. in a hot bath is the best.

2. i love the show "Diner's, Drive-in's, and Dive's " on the food network. it makes me hungry every time i watch it, cause it shows good old comfort food which i love. and i love seeing people succeed that are great cooks but don't have a fancy restaurant or an expensive menu.

3. i am living my dream job. this may sound cliche but it is honestly the truth. when i was little all i ever wanted to be was a wife and a mom. i went to college and studied liberal studies to become a teacher cause I couldn't have 'home-maker' as a major. i know some mom's feel like they had to put their passions on the back burner during this time in their life but i can honestly say that THIS (being a mom and being a wife) is my passion. i love it and am thankful that i am living my dream job.

4. i love sleep. i am not really a night owl or a morning person. i just love to sleep. at night i am super tired and in the morning i hate waking up. it was super rough for me when i had babies up through the night. very hard times!!!

5. when i was little i used to tell my mom that i was NEVER going to have boys. "all boys do is play with cars and mud all day!" i would tell her....she would always say "jenni you are going to have three boys!" .. ha! how did she know??? well, now that i am the mom of three boys i could NEVER imagine it any different. and i feel like i am such a boy mom.

6. i am kind of embarassed of this one since i feel like i am letting out a deep dark secret that nobody else knows except my immediate family but here it goes....i am NOT as patient and mellow as most people think i am. i have a breaking point and it is sad to say that my immediate family are the only one's who have seen it. i can be patient to a point and then i can just blow. i have always been this way and it is something that i wish i could change about myself. it's hard now that i have a family cause when mom blows it usually causes much chaos in the house. why do us moms have so much control of the mood of the house? if mom is happy the house is happy. if mom is mad...the house is not so good.

7. i can burp REALLY loud. when i was little i won a contest at school for this amazing talent. in our house we all have super powers. mine is burping :)


now i am supposed to tag 7 more people........shannon. vern. jenny. katie. dawnielle. juliana. and erin.

Thanks for letting your deep dark secret cat out of the bag! I LOVE that you guys all have your own super powers. Maybe you can blog about what everyone's are. And what's your weakness??

Okay, I have complied & responded to you tagging me on my blog : ) xoxoxo.

oh i love sleep too!! i need it. i need more than most people too. if i could sleep 10 hrs a night i would be REALLY happy, but even 7 hrs a night is not nearly enough.

as far as #6, we all have our breaking points . . . i am thankful for my Dad, who once told me that with children it is good to think in themes--what are the themes we are speaking into their hearts? are we pretty consistent with our themes--our rhythm--our family connection. that is what is most important--as opposed to beating ourselves up over the details (or tiny mistakes), because they forget those (usually). [dear god i hope so]

Hey! It's Kara (Ashlee & Emilee's mom). I was reading the Sullivan's blog and saw yours on her list and thought to myself "how cute that all my neighbors blog" and decided to take a peek. When I read your post something very funny happened...

I was telling a friend of mine a story just the other day...I totally lost my temper with my kids and blew my stack only to realize the back door was open and that the entire neighborhood probably heard me screaming at my kids! I was so embarrassed and as I was telling her, her retort was "Oh Kara! Relax! It's just not that big of a deal - we all yell at our kids!" And my response was this: "I bet my neighbor Jenny doesn't yell at her kids - she's perfect!" Within 24 hours, I read your blog and had a great laugh! Thanks for sharing your "dark secret" - it made me feel much better! :)
