I believe

I believe that coffee and donuts in the morning start out a day right.

I believe that you can have bff's in real life and bff's in Internet life and they are equally as important. (Even though my husband thinks you are all made up.)

I believe in eye rolling, heavy sighs and sticking your tongue out at people who deserve it. Although sometimes I want to smack my children for this.

I believe that music, sports and art should be requirements in every school.

I believe that teachers and therapists should make more money than sports players.

I believe that reading can take you anywhere and every child should learn to read.

I believe that video games, movies and TV have their place and it's cruel to never ever let your child have these things.

I believe that however you create your family and whomever you choose to have in it, is your choice and it should be honored as a real family.

I believe in adoption. I believe that a child adopted, is someones real child.

I believe in the healing power of ice cream.

I believe that flossing your teeth is beneficial, but I'm still likely to never do it.

I believe laughter is the best medicine.

I believe in bubble baths, date nights, pedicures, family game night and wine and cupcakes with the Internets night.

I believe music helps the soul.

I believe that a lot more people like country music than say they do.

I believe that people who bring toddlers to a PG-13 movie at 8pm on a Friday night should be taken out back and beaten.

I believe that everyone should see as much of the world as possible. Also the US, if you live here. (Then maybe we'd all ahem me not say things on Twitter like: "okay might be dumb, but Chicago is the east coast right? Anything past Ohio is in my head." Not realizing that you will then be sent a picture of a map of the US. Funny enough I've actually been to Ohio. To me, it's still the east coast. Ha. Gotta love the Los Angeles mind set that everything past the LA county line is the east coast.)

I believe every child deserves a good education.

I believe that this community rocks. Completely. For the support you all gave my guest poster yesterday and for all you give too me. For the continued support for Heather and Mike. For the love I've seen directed at Maddie Moo. For the support everyone gives each other on Twitter everyday. I adore this community.

So yeah, my post is going to kind of *totally* repeat what you just said.

And yes to coffee and doughnuts. And reading.

And paying teachers more. ;-)

Rah, rah, rah...

Love all of this! Except for the part about sport being mandatory in school. I hated P.E. and would have been a much happier child if it was optional.

And THANK YOU again, for letting me get naked in your backyard, and for supporting me - you are a great friend!

I LOVE this post, and I love your beautiful purple blog!

Yeah, I give you 10 years and you'll be flossing. Sigh. Everything starts to go after 40.

Love your post, although I really do dislike country music. Unless it is something wacky like Southern Culture on the Skids who I've been on stage with to throw fried chicken at the audience. Good times.

i've never read much over here ... but came over when instamom did her guest post ...
decided to read what you believe.
and now i love you.
i'll be back ... because i am all about LOVING people that feel the same way i do. it's slightly egotistical ... i'm aware of that.

I absolutely agree with all of this. Wonderful. Also, my mom thinks you are an old man pretending to be a mother. Ha.
