The World's Toughest Job...only 24 people applied apparently!!

Please click on the link, read and then watch the video...outstanding advertisement I say!!  It made me giggle and cry...that's how I roll!


Sometimes you feel worthless as a parent...even though you know YOU ARE NOT WORTHLESS!  You're not dagnabit! This is just a feel good video and I LOVE it! I hope they make another one for the other parent in our house come June!!  It's a tough job for both of us but the rewards are immeasurable!

From last month at the movies!

Happy (almost) Mother's Day to my Mom...and to me!!

...and now a WOOT WOOT for Emily!!

03/20/14 Video of meeting added!!  http://vimeo.com/89507391

Emily, along with 2 other Grade 4 students from Edison were chosen to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at last night's Westland City Council Meeting. Although we're of course going to say that Em was totally awesome up there, all 3 of them did a... great job. They called the principal up to say a few words and she talked about the kids being 3 of the finest at Edison and what a great school Edison is!!They then called the parents up to say a little bit about our kids...I cracked a joke about being handed the mic by a guy who just told me he wouldn't shake my hand because he was sick!! I promise I didn't embarrass Em at all, I just talked about how incredibly proud Sean and I are of her!!

This is a picture my parents sent to show Em their support!!!  She LOVED it Grammy and Papa!!

Church Signs

I drive down the same stretch of road nearly each morning on my way to work. There is a church I pass that has a signboard and they often post things that either make me chuckle (Home Improvements? Bring your family to church.), laugh out loud VERY loudly (We're still here between Christmas and Easter.) and even get my thoughts thinking! I've got a lot of friends right now struggling with different aspects of their lives and I wish they too could see this sign each morning and know that it ALL will eventually be okay and that we are all exactly where we need to be at this point in time I hope this makes you smile! Note: I do not know, attend or support this church but I sure do love and appreciate their sign!

This morning, the sign made me chuckle!!
