I do love Conference Weekend! Really, I do-- I'm not being a cheeseball. Since we do not live in UT, and we are so dang cheap that we don't have cable, we watched it online from home. Yes! I said we WATCHED it. Not listened this time, since LDS.org has thee best website, ever. Not to bash on my alma mater, but whoever was in charge of streaming conference/devotionals before on BYU TV should lose their jobs. It rarely worked, and when it did, it certainly did suck.
But how to keep the kids quiet/not wrestling dad/not asking me questions 2 inches from my face during the whole thing? Feed them, of course! Keep their hands and mouths busy, ha ha. Look gross?
It was!! That's 'cause mommy was too busy to remember to buy snack items (veg's & dip, fruit, etc) beforehand. I was a little preoccupied with guests we had last week and such. Nah it was kid friendly and they still liked it.
Anyway, I must confess 2 things: 1., being that I listen perfectly when I am playing a brain-dead game such as solitaire or minesweeper. Does this mean I have adult ADHD? 2nd, or B.(family joke ;): I typically, ACCIDENTALLY fall asleep during the last session right about after the intermediate hymn. Thank heavens I didn't this time! What mother could not absolutely love Elder Ballard's talk? If you know me, you know I feel guilty about what I do or don't do as a parent. What a breath of fresh air: "Inadequacy": check. "Monotony": check.(occasionally). I'm doing the best I can, so I'm going to get over it! Loved the cheerios story ('cept lately that's Jeff wrestling the boys all on his own; poor Jeffrey). I appreciate what he said about husbands supporting and respecting their wives. In contrast, I have realized all week just how lucky I am, when Jeff gets up at 6:00 to be at work before 7:00 am, and I roll over and say "love ya hon!" and start snoring logs before he even says bye. What could be nicer than a loving husband who works their buns off so I can stay home and spend his money? (and again, if ya know me, you know that money part ain't true either ;)
