Jumping on the bandwagon...

So, I have decided to start blogging. I realize my life is so very average and boring to most, but I have had a few people tell me I should blog to tell my everyday-life stories. Thank you Miss Cynthia and Miss Teresa. I really appreciate the fact that y'all think we are interesting!

I decided on the title My Cup Runneth Over because it is one of my absolute favorite scriptures.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (Psalm 23:5)
It means so much and can really be applied to many things in my life. I have been blessed with infinitely more than I deserve.

This is a fun way to count my blessings, recount some of our daily happenings, vent, muse, keep friends and family up to date, and maybe even share an idea or two.

I plan to not only tell our stories and document some of the more interesting points of our lives as a family, but also to post interesting things I come across. My greatest joy is my family, but I also have other passions and interests. I love fashion and makeup, party planning, and have recently started to really get into baking. I will also include some diet and exercise as it is a necessary evil at this stage of my life. IE after having two huge Tait babies and still having 10 pounds left to lose to get back to pre-pregnancy weight.

Each day brings something new for the Tait household. Between  all three of my guys, I stay quite busy and quite entertained. So here goes nothing....Please feel free to quit reading if there is nothing of interest for you here. This is mainly to keep a record of our day-to-day life and occurences so that I will not forget it all. As I plan to explain in my next post, I firmly believe that Mothers are programmed to "forget" most of the negatives of raising little ones and years later, only remember good, happy memories for the most part. I think God knew exactly what He was doing when making us Mothers, because how else would people ever have more than one child?!

No, but seriously, ask any other Mother out there if it is a piece of cake and all sunshine and rainbows and she will tell you no. If she doesn't, she is either lying or trying to convince herself.  However, the good times far outweigh the  bad! Of course, I could be being a little negative right now as it is three A.M. and I am still awake with  a sick 11 month old and I have to go to work tomorrow followed by 5K training and the first day of Lawson's T-ball practice. Sigh....I will get back to you on that tomorrow when I am slightly, and I do mean SLIGHTLY, more rested.....

However, my cup ALWAYS runneth over!


  1. Oh yay!!! I love hearing your crazy stories!!! This ought to give me a good daily laugh. Love y'all! :)
