now i know why

You know how they never stick anything in your ear smaller than your elbow? Well, I have learned my lesson. Don't do it, not even innocent looking q-tips. Seriously, the pain is awful. I don't think I did anything to my eardrum but maybe broke some skin inside or something, not really sure. I had no idea the ear was so hurts like the Dickens. Thank goodness for ibuprofen.  I'm told that it'll start getting better in 3 days! 3 days! Ughhhhh

Moral of the story...nothing goes in the ear.

blog happiness

I have been a bit absent on the blog world. I just did some catching up on some of my friend's blogs and my heart definitely smiled. It's fun to hear and see the happiness in their lives and even though there weren't any heart felt struggles shared this time, I don't mind reading those either. I love getting a glimpse at their lives...things that don't always come up in conversation. I love blogs.

Anyway, I have a one year old. And I swear she changed over night from a baby to a one year old. She crawls, walks and DANCES!? I honestly don't know when that happened. The first time I noticed it was on her birthday. She is throws tantrums already. So crazy. She giggles when I sternly tell her "no".  She is going to be a handful, I know it. But I think she will be a fun handful. She loves to laugh.
Boo has been spending hours drawing and coloring everyday. Today she asked when she could have a stand to sell her pictures. haha. I guess she loved having a lemonade stand with her friends.  Her friend was selling cookies at the garage sale. One of the customers asked if we had something and Boo said, "no but we have cookies." What a great salesman!

 I sure do love my girls. I am a happy momma. Sometimes, a stressed, anxious or frustrated momma. But a happy momma. What a blessing to be a mom. It makes me sad when people don't know the blessings of being a mom, it's the happiest feeling in the world. That love that fills my heart makes me feel more alive than anything....and the best thing is that I know I can enjoy that love and happiness forever, when others believe it ends when we leave our bodies but I know it goes on and on.

under the weather

I need to write somethings that Boo has been saying. First off is that "throat" is sickness...sore or throwing up I think. Second is one day she said "I can speak Spanish". I asked what language she normally speaks, "Languish". .

Boo is under the weather and caught a stomach bug. She has only thrown up twice: once when she swallowed toothpaste and the other when she gagged herself trying to eat cold spaghetti that the scouts served at a spaghetti feed. This was the first time she threw up because of illness. And boy did she moan and cry all night. sadly, we had to let her cry. I started sleep and I'm pretty sure I woke up to crying, " Heavenly Father, are you really there?" And then a loud cry....which we found out was because she had made
A mess everywhere.  Later on while she was at the toilet I hear her pray,  "Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Please take away my throat. And help me not be sick....Amen." oh my heart. I prayed that he could answer this little girl's prayer but knew she has to go through this and that it will be over soon. So sad.
