Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

Well, Thursday is here again and you know what that means...  Time for this week's edition of Thankful Thursday.  With the Christmas holiday upon us, I am feeling extra thankful.  I am thankful for all the snow we got last week even though none of it lasted more than three hours because the rain came and washed it away.  I'm still glad that God her my prayers and allowed me to see it.  Hoping that we'll see a little bit more for Christmas too.

I'm also thankful that my gifts are wrapped and tucked snugly under the tree.  I've been battling a little bit of morning sickness these past few days and couldn't imagine trying to wrap everything in one night.  I'm thankful for my mom who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure Moo has an abundance of gifts.  I saw a lot of parents complaining about how their parents tried to out do them with buying presents for their kids and to be honest I could care less if my mom out gifts me with Moo.  It's her money and not mine.

The most important point is that Moo has a great Christmas.  And I can always donate some of her older toys to charity.  I mean lets be real, she doesn't need 5 doll babies that look almost exactly alike and all to the samething.  I am thankful that Moo is neither interested or frightened by Santa.  I think that she has already put two and two together and knows that he's not real.

Just one more talk I can cross off my list of Talks to Have With the Kids.  I'm also thankful that my Moo is learning more words and expanding her vocabulary.  She now holds long and extensive conversations with Grandma and Auntie Nunu on the phone.  And today she told me she had the hiccups!!  I wasn't even sure she knew what those were.  I mean I've never been around a two year old who knew how to use the word hiccup.

Usually, the call hiccups a burp, but my Moo knows the difference between the two.  I am thankful for my new phone-the Evo.  My treo was really on its last leg.  Plus, I'm a busy girl who needs a phone that can keep up with me.  I am thankful that I selected a wonderful OB/GYN practice and that the staff is amazing.

And they show no signs of going out of business any time soon unlike my last practice.  This is great because I don't like just anyone checking under my hood.  I am also thankful for my newfound blogger bffs- Mommy Glow, Mommy Delicious and Baby Making Machine.  These ladies have inspired and motivated me in so many ways.  They are strong, determined, caring and compassionate.  Most of all they're all really great moms!!

I am thankful for the success that YUMMommy has had this year.  I know that next year is going to be even better!!  I am thankful that God has allowed me to see another year of life-my 25th day was Sunday!!  So many of the people I started school with didn't even get to make it to our high school graduation.  Therefore, I know that I am blessed to be alive and seeing 25.

Last but not least, I am thankful to be spending the holidays with my family.  I love them dearly and am grateful for all of their support during the good times and the bad.  Hope that you will take time to reflect on what you have to be thankful for this season as well.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!


  1. This is the sweetest post! I really love your Thankful Thursdays. It really helps me -- especially when I get caught up in life, I can read this, step back, and say, "okay, time to give THANKS!"

    I'm also thankful that I met you. Blogging has afforded me the opportunity to connect with people in ways that I never thought possible. And for that, I'm truly thankful.

  2. Im so excited for you in the new year...a new baby and loads of new thigns to look forward to in your 30-before 30 plan. to get a start, visit a new website that is starting to talk about some of the things you are experiencing:

  3. People actually complain because their mom buys too many gifts for their kids? Omg, they are trippin! Things are so tight these days, so that is a blessing to me. lol.

    Hahaha @ Moo knowing the word "hiccups." She is so bright!

  4. @Alicia-Awww..thanks!! Looking forward to seeing Mommy Delicious take off in the New Year. I'm sure that God has lots in store for you and your little prince.

    @Miss Pancakes-Yes, I will have a lot of new things happening in my life for the New Year and I'm excited about all of them. Thanks for leaving me the link!!

    @Yakini-Yes, I couldn't believe it either. I'm glad my mom was able to get Moo a lot stuff that we just couldn't afford to splurge on. It's a blessing I gladly welcomed.
