Okay, I just don't have time this week to post new questions, and I think we may be able to flesh out the questions from last week even more, so keep going! But to give us one question that we can all add to whenever: What cute/funny thing did your kid do or say today? Yeah, it's not a deep one, but sometimes it's hard to come up with questions that make us reflect and grow and all that.

Okay, remember when you were 18? I guess I've been thinking about change...well, a lot lately. Sometimes I think about how much I've changed since then, and I feel like a completely different person. And then at other times I might find myself thinking about how people I knew back then used to be...and I guess I wonder if they've changed too, or maybe not (no, I'm not thinking about anyone here or necessarily anyone in particular)? So here is the question: How have you changed as a person since you were 18. I don't mean environmentally speaking, or the fact that you have kids now, I mean who you are as a person. What's different now?

So all the mom talk about TV got me thinking about how we as mom's creatively keep our children occupied. Let's face it: the days can get long sometimes! And TV can be quite tempting! So what are the creative things and ideas you have to entertain and teach your children???

Katie's comments about being obsessively in love with her son really got me thinking about...people. You know--the way we are. How everyone is either a detail person, or a worry wort (those two often go hand in hand), or maybe they never notice a thing. Or how about the first thing we notice about someone else. Is it their eyes, clothes, hair, teeth? Or is the way they talk? Or do we just not pay attention at all? What do you think about way to much? I guess the question that I'm trying to get at is what is the thing that you obsess over? What characteristics about people do you notice the most? Do you pay attention to your surroundings? Or are you a people watcher? What catches your eye? What do you think about when you can't fall asleep at night? I know this seems confusing, but I guess I'm asking a lot of questions but trying to come to one conclusion...what are those tiny little personality characteristics that make you who you are--love it or hate it! And while we're at it feel free to add any of your personality traits that drive you crazy!

What has been the biggest surprise for you about motherhood? Have there been any big dissapointments? To go a little more in depth, I've been reading a book called "Raising Your Spirited Child" to help me understand my little guy and be a better parent. In the book it talks about how sometimes we have to let go of those images of the "perfect child" we had before we got a little "spirited" child. It was always my goal to let my child be who they were and to not try and force them into any role, so I don't feel like I went through a grieving process or anything, but things are sometimes very different than I thought they would be. I now have a "typical" baby (aka. Cora), or so I think, and it's so interesting to see how different they are. Anyways, let's discuss all the surprises, good and bad, all the dissapointments; let it all out.

So how does everyone feel about McCain? A lot of conservatives say he's too far center, or even left. A lot feel like he doesn't represent conservative beliefs at all. If you have an opinion share it. If not, you should go get one and come back when you do. Also, what is important to you in this election? Can changes be made?
