You'd think I'd be Super Mom for this...

In my spare time (I hope you're laughing), I'm working with a group to put together Hands-On Truck Day at Sci-Quest this year. So, we had a photo shoot on Monday morning and guess who's kids get in photo shoots? The kids of the mommies who are doing all the work!

Here are my 2 little future fireman:


Ollie talked about the firetruck ALL day yesterday and they got to play on it for about 30 minutes, so it was a lot of fun for them.


The reason that this didn't get posted last night is because I got sucked into watching the real supermom:

I can't put my finger on it, but I am ENTHRALLED with the Duggar family. You can't really click there for more photos, but you can click here for their website with all their info. Apparently the Duggars now have a 30 minute show on TLC. Does happy even describe my joy? NO!!
I have watched and TiVoed every show that they have and they are just great. I don't aspire to have that many children, but I love their story and I love learning how they do it.

They are super fundamental Christians and all their children are very well rounded for being in the spotlight for so long. She homeschools all 17 of her children and has one more on the way! I don't even completely agree with all their interpretations of Christian faith (long hair and skirts only for girls, no kissing until your wedding day, etc), but I do appreciate them and how well they represent themselves. I love seeing Godly people on TV- even if they are to this extreme.

I do think people will make fun of them, but it's a positive show on TV, so their can't be too much wrong with it. It's along the lines of John and Kate plus 8 (another of my favorites), but much more wholesome- John and Kate are more realistic to my actual life... with only 2 children! This past sentence struck through in 2009 when no one would want to claim their lives similar to J & K.
