Be the Change


“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Check out this new song by my friend Brandon and his band.  Album coming this June.


I will be cute


We went to a wedding this weekend.  Once everything started there was a place for the kids to watch from the aisle that was near the back.  Jadyn got a little too excited and I had to remind her she need to be quiet.

She responded with, “I will be cute, Mommy,  I will be cute.”

Cute, don’t you think?

I’m paniking!



A few days ago, Austin and Tyler came home with little stuffed bears that their Kindergarten teacher sent to their class from the US.  It is amazing to me how much they still loved stuffed animals and how receiving a new one sparks their love for all the old ones!  After playing with them for hours, we were getting ready for bed when Austin came in teary eyed.

Austin: I can’t find my bear!!

Me: Where did you last have him?

Austin: (A little louder, and more tears) He was in my room!

Me: Well, have you looked all over in your room?

Austin: (Getting very upset now and a little angry)Yes, he’s’ not there!

Me: What about the office?

Austin: (Totally losing control) He’s not anywhere!

Me: Okay, take a deep breath.  Let’s just calm down and talk about all the places you have been and where you need to still look.

Austin: (Deep breath, still very tearful) Okay, but it’s just that I’m … well, I’m upset because I’m paniking!

Oh, that I could explain my rampages this way.
