Cowboys and Lamanites…

It is my estimation that I changed more diapers by the time I was twelve years old than most women who have only one child do in their lifetime.

I started my illustrious, and lengthy, babysitting career when I was eight years old.   We were living in Provo while my dad went to BYU, and even though we were poor my mom was devout in her faith and followed the gospel by being a turbo charged baby MACHINE.  Most of my memories of my mom during my childhood are of her being pregnant.  Being pregnant and crying a lot.

Did I mention we were really poor?


Primary songs for kids with bad dads…

We all remember the classic “Daddy’s Homecoming” song from primary, right?  Goes a little something like this:

“I’m so glad when Daddy comes home, Glad as I can be, Clap my hands and shout for joy, and climb upon his knee…”

That song used to piss me off.
