what DiD you Do toDay?

March 2006-Vintage Pink

this is the question i always hear from my husband Jeff. I know he means so well and wants to be interested in my day, but sometimes in comparison to what he does it seems so lame.
"hey Jeff what did you do today?" I ask.
"Well, I removed a mans nose, drilled small magnets in his face, reconstructed a new nose from the fatty tissue of his leg and then placed magnets in that so that he can put that over the hole where i removed his nose. then i ran 8 miles before going to my second job to work another 12 hours" he humbly replies. and then he asks me what I did.
So I took a picture to show all what I did. I changed 11 of these. That's it! no magnets, no running, no saving lives.

Kristi, I'm loving your archives. I almost feel like I'm in your personal museum while you're off exploring new ones.

lol BUT you made a difference in the lives of your children by being a MOM who was there for them when they needed you most! :)

It must be so nice now that you only have 1 in diapers. Those days of 11 diaper changes are gone. Phew!

Loving your blog! Will there be a time where we miss "diaper days"? going on my 4th (due Sept.) and I just don't think those days will be missed, maybe those little buns, but not the yuck and smell. Thanks for the laughs.

I didn't think I could love your blog anymore, but you are proving me wrong with your great archives!

We have a joke at my house that whenever my husband asks me that I say, "I just finished watching my soap operas and eating my bon bons!" and he says "Figures!" then we laugh and realize that we are dorks...

Great post! It's so true how some days we feel like all we did was change diapers.
I'm loving your archives!

I like it when I am pregnant because when my husband asks "What did you do today?" I can say, "I grew a human heart"... or ... "I grew another kidney" ... "How 'bout you?"

At first blush, it may seem Jeff's work is more significant - he's saving and rebuilding people's lives. But YOU are raising a new generation of WOMEN OF GOD - mothers, nurturers, leaders... I know you realize this. :) Funny how the two contrast when put in the perspective of number of diapers changed!

HA! This is hilarious, Kristi. Even though we know the work we are doing is so important, it is hard to compete sometimes with magnet, 8 miles of running and saving lives!
