Out of the Mouth of Gabe...

We're having fun and running around after Archie gets home on Friday. Gabe has some monster shoes since he has some monster feet so every once in awhile they are bound to trip him up...right into the corner of the wall while eating candy. So he freaks out and starts bawling. I'm giving him all the cuddles and kisses and hugs I can and so is Archie. This went on for a few minutes. Now I'm starting to get a bit worried that he may have a concussion (Gabe is my first so I do freak out over everything)....He stops crying and looks up at me and says: "More candy?" That was it! I cracked up so hard!!!! How could I refuse. So more candy it was.

Happy Women's Day!

Yes, it's mother's day and I want to wish all those who are mother's a happy one. But I like to think that just being a woman is pretty darn special. I remember when I wasn't a mother and how every year I'd head over for the family party and I just felt lame, deficient, etc. I have two sisters and they both gave to each other on that day, but I was always left out...My mom is pretty darn awesome so she always included me with a card and a hug...but still. What about all those women out there who want to be parents and can't? I just feels a bit too in your face every year.

So I say let's just celebrate womanhood! Whether you have children, want children but don't yet, don't have any and probably won't, let's just celebrate together! We're awesome. And no matter who you are, you awesome for who you are now, not for who you may or may not be in the future. Let's celebrate the wonderful women in our lives...our moms, sisters, aunts, grandmas, daughters, cousins, and friends! You are BEAUTIFUL!
