 Michele and Mel are hosting Ketchup with Us #13 and asked whose shoes we would like to walk in for a day. This was hard. 

Amy wrote something. Jenn wrote something. Michele kept poking me. Ouch.  OK. OK. I picked.

She's up early in a good mood. Can accomplish more in a day than anyone I've ever know.  

She loves her family. Her work. She is lucky. She is grateful. She is talented. Really talented. 

Her children think she's the best. Her husband too. 

They are the lucky ones.

I love her. Always.   My wife........Sandi Ragg

Ketchup with Us # 13

Mel and Michele are hosting a bi-weekly link-up called "Ketchup With Us". This assignment is #13 and it is to talk about whose shoes you would like to walk in for a day in 57 words or less.
I got nothing. Nada. But GOOD NEWS! Our daughter Jenn said she would humor me and play this time. Yippeee! This is what she wrote....

Since becoming a stay-at-home mom, my life has revolved around my son, so I have thought a lot about what it would be like to be a toddler again (but only for a day)...

Only fourteen months into his life,
eyes wide with wonder, innocent laughter abounds.
It takes so little to amuse and impress him.
Not yet afraid, not yet jaded.
Seeing the world for the first time - 
everything is new and interesting.
Ahh to go back to the beginning and do it all again.
What would I do differently?

*Thanks to Dad for helping me post this without my own blog, and thanks to Mel and Michele for letting me play too!
