My first post

I thought I would start this blog so I don't forget all the day to day things that happen under this roof. The things that make this house a home, the things that really matter. I'm hoping that by writing it out I won't forget. It will be etched in my memory and not just my heart. These three little people who make me smile, make me think, make me better.  I want to remember every smile, every coversation, every Cheerios necklace, every silly phase they go through. Even the let's take all the Tupperware out of the cupboard every time I walk into the kitchen phase. Watching him go from reading one word at a time to entire books. Watching his confidence grow.  I don't want to forget how happy she is when I get her out of her crib. I don't want to forget that they run to me every time they get hurt, that they would rather play with me than watch tv, that they trust me more than anyone else. I don't want to forget the snuggles, the kisses, the sweet smell of Burt's Bees baby lotion on a tuft of strawberry blonde hair. I simply don't want to forget all the things that make them them.
I'm not a great writer and I'm certainly not computer savvy. I'm not sure I will ever be able to figure out how to post pictures and the thought of anyone ever reading this...well let's just say that's enough to have me pushing delete.

Here's to hoping we make it to  post two.
