Winter Storm Warning!!!

We have a winter storm, if you haven't heard! :) Which means for us - NO SCHOOL !!!!
Olivia was very bummed, first she hears no school, which she LOVES, and then she isn't even going to her day care provider's for the day! Man, bummer, a whole day with mom and the boys! :) LOL She was excited when I told her that she and Braeden would be able to play out in the front yard, though. These pics were taken with mom and Little One safe and warm inside!!! Olivia was so cute helping Braeden down the steps to the yard. They had a blast, and mom had 45 min of "rest" from the activity. Then inside for some hot cocoa!

This "rest" was much needed, as was the snow day, since I was SICK on Monday. Luckily no school that day. It was not fun. I ate not one thing all day, I could barely smell food without feeling sick. YUCK! But, woke up much better today to the 5am phone tree calling school off.

We are under a blizzard warning until midnight tonight. My friend and her three year old foster daughter came over for lunch, nap, play time and now dinner. We had a good time. EXCEPT for the 25 min of Supernanny I did while putting Braeden into time out repeatedly until he actually sat. Usually I give up so to say and place him in his room for time out. I need to really nip some of the attitude in the bud soon, it's getting crazy. So I was consistent. I never knew, and still don't, how some parents on that show last for two hours repeatedly placing their child back in time out. I could barely stand 25 min. Wow. What a day!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
