She's Famous. I'm not.


Surely you read this blog! 

If you don't, boy what you are missing!
She has a way with words and writes with a *no nonsense* approach to parenting. She has taught me so much about blogging.....and she let me copy her header!!

Anywho, she is trying to make me famous...like her.

Go HERE to read her blog today. She interviewed little old me.

Leave her a comment...and then come back and tell me what you think.

....and just because I can't blog without a picture:

Just a little something from Judy said...

You are right! Her blog is amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed her questions and read every word of your answers. We have so many similarities in our life situations and our parenting philosophies. You did a beautiful job with a loving spirit. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am sure it will bless many lives. Well done! I really enjoyed your family picture and the one of you and your husband. This certainly was refreshing.

Dear Angela!

I just finished reading your interview at Clover Lane. I am a new mom with three little ones under the age of 4 too!

It was so wonderful to hear your responses and read about your thoughts on the journey I have ahead knowing you had such a similar line up! (I also have boy, girl, boy).

Will definitely be following your blog now, and hopefully not hounding you with my own questions as they come up! :) :)

Thanks for sharing your heart and wisdom in the interview!

I loved your interview. It was kind of like reading about myself. We started out the same way for sure. Right down to the we got married at 18 and 21. You did a great job and young moms will certainly benefit from your wisdom.

What an awesome interview, Angela. You and I definitely think alike. I could have written some of those very same answers. You have such a beautiful family and it is quite evident that you and your husband were great parents. Yes, we are not all perfect, but you did an amazing job in the process!!! God is the center of your life and that is so evident in your love of family! Have a nice weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

I just wanted to let you know that I loved your interview over at Clover Lane! As a new mom, your advice was really helpful. How blessed your children are to have you as an example and expert. Also, after browsing your blog a bit, I can see how beautifully you fill your role as "Nonny"! Love it! :)

I am a Clover Lane reader....and I loved your interview!

The part about having your kids work at summer camp is SO TRUE. I worked summer camps all through high school AND college....and it changed my life.

I am a teacher and I think a big part of my "success" in the classroom is because of lessons I learned working summer camps :)

Looks like you did a great job raising your kids--thanks for sharing!

I LOVE Sarah and I LOVE Clover Lane. For all of your readers who do not know of her, she is such an inspiration.

I am so glad that she has pointed me to you, too! Loved your interview with her.

I just read your interview at Clover Lane. Fabulous! I love your five things to teach your kids. Love them and point them to Jesus! Your interview spoke to my heart. Thanks for sharing!

Heather said...

What a fun and great interview!! I have not read that blog before, so cute!! I love that picture of your girl in her swimsuit!! So cute!

Connie said...

Angela...love getting to know you better and you gave some great advice to all the young moms who will read her blog and I think you are a little more famous now. I was able to stay home a lot of years with my children and it was a sacrifice that I'd do again. It was worth it!

I love reading the interviews from Sarah (my sister in law).....she has allowed us moms to "see the world" through other moms' eyes....and it is truly amazing to me how we are all soooo alike.....We love being a wife, a mom, and really want the same for our kiddos!!!! It was awesome to read your interview....from the "Nonny" perspective....truly wonderful!! I sometimes think about those days (which are far away right now...but as we all know....) I think about how my mom "did all this" and my mother in law....both are amazing moms and now grandmas!! You have a beautiful family...grand babies and all.... Thank you for sharing your thoughts to all of us....I love how you said we get to "parent" a second time.... that is a fabulous way of putting it!! Enjoy!!!
