My Way

Performed by the 3 Tenors. I love the 3 Tenors. Some of you might notice I have they're stuff in my playlist, and yeah... I really DO like them. They remind me of working in my dad's office, or driving with him in his car- because he liked them... and since he's no longer here, well I guess it's sentimental and important to me. You could say they remind me of him. =) I thought about this song and they're performance during a discussion at bible study. And no, I did not think of it being sung by Sinatra, only the 3 tenors could come to mind....and yes, this is for you Shannon. =)

Can't Seem to Get it Right!

About 8 months ago, Brayden used to be in love with this commercial... However, when I played it tonight, he could care less! Ugh! Why do babies have to change. Can't he stay little forever?? I secretly wish he'd still be amused with this silly commercial because it was really cute to watch him stare at it with his mouth WIDE open.

Baby Mia Amore

I wanted to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support for baby Mia. I am amazed by how my family and friends have come together and pray for my friend's beautiful baby and her family. I love each and everyone of you, and I'm so thankful I have you all in my life.

These last few weeks have been a struggle. Baby Mia isn't doing very well and the doctors cannot find out what's wrong, whether its chromosomal or neurological. And she still cannot breathe on her own. Please continue to pray for baby Mia, her parents Rachael and Robert, and her big sister Mercedes. I know that Heavenly Father will see them through this and I pray that all of us can feel his presence no matter what the outcome may be. He has a special plan for Mia, and trusting in the Lord shall bring us all comfort.

If you would like to find out more about baby Mia and her condition, you can visit their family blog. And again, thank you for the continued prayers.

God Bless.

Rachael and Mia.

The Comfy Cushy Potty!

Last night I bought Brayden his first potty. He was more excited to get in it and take it apart, rather than sit on it. However, after 15 minutes in the bathroom, he sat on the 'potty' and said "uh" and then the sound of tinkles followed. Hmmm, hopefully we'll have an ok time with this potty thing, guess we'll have to wait and see.

Phones and Plungers.

My new phone came today! YAY!! I can now receive calls, texts, and messages without it vibrating like crazy.... now, I just need to activate it. Hmph... That should be interesting....

I apologize for those of you who have been trying to get a hold of me. Starting tomorrow, I will be easy to find! And yes, I will be able to return phone calls easier and send texts without wanting to throw my phone in the toilet. And if I did that, it still would be a BAD thing, because all of you know I hate to use plungers.

My new phone, the enV 2.

Speaking of plungers, yes I know many of you have made fun of me for hating them and that I'm scared to use them. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful we have them. However, I figure in this day and age we could come up with a better way to de-clog our toilets. We should have smart toilets. So if my son throws a roll of toilet paper in there, it should figure out a way to swallow it whole by the push of a button. That way it could take it all with no complaints or gag reflexes. But we all know that doesn't happen how we wish it would. And so the plunger comes in. When using the plunger, it splashes around used toilet paper that's soaked in pee-water. In some cases breaks up the lounging soaked paper and spits surrounding water all over the place. Soon you will hear the sound of a cat coughing up a hair ball that has been lodged in there for a century, and after that you will need to do a series of flushes. Then problem is solved... however, with a toddler, this whole thing is just gross. I will save my money for a 'smart-nonclogable' toilet.

plunger. gross.

Not only are plungers gross, they can be very dangerous. My cousin once got a plunger thrown at his face. It sliced his head and he needed stitches! (A very true story!) The attacker was his brother. And this happened in the backyard and NOT in the bathroom. The question here is why was there a plunger in their backyard to begin with....?

Moral of my story. Plungers are dumb, and getting a new phone is AWESOME! Brownie anyone?
