30 Things My Girls Should Know About Me

This week while blog hopping in Top Mom Blogger I ran across this great blog post – 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me. As my girls get older I realize they have always seen me just as “Mom” – and not as Lynsey. It is hard for them to see sometimes that I am human – with thoughts, ideas, and feelings outside of motherhood. *gasp* Yes, Moms, we are allowed to have those. Even conversations we have had – especially with The Teen – where I say things like “You know I DID live a part of my life before you were born.”  So I decided to join in – and I even challenged my friends to do so as well. Below is the list if you want to jump in! I will be updating every Wednesday!
