about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Weekend Review

We have had another busy weekend, but nothing fun to report.

I went shopping on Friday with my mom and my girls. We were able to buy a couple of things for Christmas. I got a call while we were shopping letting me know that one of my best friends and Maggie & Ellie's adopted Gammy (back in our old hometown) had lost her husband. I cried right there in Walmart and The Muffin was so concerned about what had happened. I told her a little later and she was heartbroken and confused.

I'd appreciate your prayers. I want to explain things in the best way so that I can help Muff understand death and Heaven. I want her to understand why he won't be there on our next visit. I want my sweet, special friend to be okay knowing that her husband is now breathing easier and I'm sure, fishing. I want to be with her and feel useful. Mostly, my heart just aches.
Big Daddy and I left The Muffin and Ellie with my mom and sister today so that we could go to the visitation and the funeral.

Sorry to hear that news: I know they were special to your family. This is yet another difficult part of parenthood....trying to find the right words to explain yet while trying to teach and help them learn.
