Know and Tell Friday(2/29/08)

Question 1
I can't bear the sound of_________.
my children crying, be it there sad, or hurt.. If there is anything I can do to help them when they are crying I'm going to do it.

Question 2
I would love to time-travel back to_________.
When my grandparents were teenagers and also again to when my parents were teenagers. and Then once again to when I was a teenager.. I think that would be cool.

Question 3
Shop alone, shop with mom, or shop with friends?
I'm an alone sort of shopper.. I get much more done. Though I do tend to shop alot with my mom, it easy that way too if she is able to keep an eye on the kids while I shop.

Question 4
Worst movie ever?
Joe Versus the Volcano. DH and I saw it early on when we were dating and I think it might be the worst movie ever.

Question 5 (More of a poll)
Have you ever had your heart broken?
Bonus Questions
Question 6
In what area of your life have you felt the most judged (by others or even self condemnation)?
HUMMM.. these bonus question I never just have an answer off the top of my head.. Let me think.. I think Motherhood.. I think once you become a mom, every other mother out there starts to judge you.. Do you work or stay at home.. Do you CIO or are you more of an APer. I think that is the biggest area in my life that I feel people judge me on. OH and to answer some of those questions.. I'm a stay at home mom(but wasn't always) and I do not do CIO.. I pretty much co sleep, extended BF and tend to be much more of an Attach parent.

Question 7
(relates to number 6) Are you now free from that judgment, and how did you get free if you are?
Yes and NO.. No because I'm sure there are still people out there who would still judge me.. thinking OH MY GOODNESS your 33 month old just weaned a week ago??? Or OH MY GOODNESS.. you need to teach your kids to fall asleep on there own and stay in there own beds.. BUT Yes I feel free from the judgment now, because God has given me a peace about how I raise my children and I guess I just honestly don't care what other people have to say about it. LOL doesn't that sound so sweet and kind of me :P

Question 8 (written by Dan Whitney)
What is one new way you could be a blessing to your pastor (or other ministers) this year?
I think Praying for them is the best thing we can do and also let them know they are loved.

Great answers. I don't understand mothers criticizing other mothers, I guess we are so passionate about our kids...

Joe Vs. the Volcano - is the worst movie either...

And I'd love to go back in time to when my grandparent and parents were teens - i think my grandparents would have been so awesome!

Yes, Joe vs. the Volcano was not so good :)

Also, you are so right about being judged in the parenting realm... I think that is a target area for a lot of women. I think most of us judge and are is so easy to fall in that trap. However, it seems you have found the key to not letting the judgment bother you...Just being concerned with what God thinks :)
