Mommy Is Getting Up There

So I had my ten year reunion this year. I know, I know. It really isn't that big of a deal, but it made me feel a little on the old side. Probably doesn't help that I teach teenagers who believe thirty is ancient. It was neat seeing people I haven't seen in awhile, but it also made me realize that I have become disconnected with so many people. I remember telling my mom that I would be friends FOREVER with my class. Guess life happened and here we are. I was getting dressed for the reunion and I looked at my right hand where I wear my ABS Awareness band. For a brief moment, I thought about taking it off because it clashed. Then I realized something, this is who my family is. I wear this band because I am so proud of what my family is made up of. Not only is K different from so many other kids, she is a part of me. How awesome is that? I have never been ashamed of my daughter and I never will be, but I realized that there are those who would like to hide their differences. Right now K is in your face about who she is and I am hoping that she always will be. She has two in your face parents so I think that will be a very good possibilty. Reflection time is over. Just thought I would get it out there. Also, Momma and Poppa G we are praying for you. K says hello and I am sure she would be tending your wounds if she were up there:)

Where Has The Time Gone?

So our little rose no longer uses her high chair, we are going to go to a toddler bed, and she is beginning to color in the lines. Where did the time go? K has an extensive vocabulary that shocks people when she speaks and she does things that I just am not prepared for her to do. You can carry on a very lengthy conversation with her now and you can actually reason with her. It doesn't always work, but can't hurt a mommy for trying:) Sorry it has been so long since we have posted, but it is a big job taking care of this little girl. This weekend we will be going to the "big girl" bed and she is quite excited. Her newest thing is gasping when she is surprised. Don't know where she learned it from because her mommy is not the most "girly" person out there. Crazy stuff. Must be getting it from her daddy:) More pictures are on the way, but know we haven't forgotten all of you out there!!!!
