Cee’s Share Your World challenge is posted each week with a different set of questions. The questions are random and a fun way for the community to interact.
This is the SYW challenge for this week…
When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?
Yes and I even have to move my tongue in concentration. As a child, I used to lick my lips constantly when drawing, coloring, and cutting. Now I try to keep that on the down low.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No! Chewed up pens and pencils are rather…unsightly. I have been handed someone’s chewed up pen to use and, well, no thank you.
Are you a collector of anything? If so what?
I have collected dictionaries since I inherited my great-grandfather’s Webster from the early 20th century. Unfortunately, at our old house, the basement had a flood and my collection was ruined. I like a good thesaurus, too. I need to start scavenging the thrift stores to build that collection up again.
What size is your bed?
Our bed is a queen-size. I have had a king-size and they are nice, but they take up a lot of space and can be difficult to move.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Our son started walking during the last few weeks and last week he really just took off. He is toddling everywhere now. Next week, we will be celebrating his FIRST BIRTHDAY! I cannot even believe it has been an entire year since that little snuggle bug was born. His personality is really popping out – he likes music and he is drawn to puzzles and studying how things fit together. He is a great little imitator, loves nose kisses, and he is cuddle bug.
For the first four hours after he was born, he was curled up on my chest between those first feedings. I did not want to move and I just wanted the time to stand still so I could lay there like that with him for a while more. Some days, I just want to go back to those first hours and have him curled up like a squishy-ball on my chest again.
Watching our son and daughter develop a relationship has been precious. Other than the occasional tiff over toys and moments of jealousy, our little girl is an awesome big sister. She reads to her baby brother, feeds him, and helps tuck him in at nap time.
And, because February is heart health month, we need to remember that the health and maintenance of our spiritual hearts matter, too…
