Well, this morning at church was interesting to say the least, something in the water???

Olivia has been coming with me to "big church" lately which has been nice. We were sitting there during the message when my childcare pager went off. It was Girlie. She had been just crying and crying. So I took her back with me where she had some big snuffles to finish off the crying and lay her head on my shoulder. Close to the end then, my pager goes off again. This time it's Braeden. I know he's not an angel, he has a lot of activity to say the least, but still he's my Braeden and he's perfect, right. Yea, not so much but I'm his mom. :) Anyway, I guess, for whatever reason, he pulled a little girl's hair, which isn't like him really, and then when the teacher wanted or tried to talk to him about that, he started running around the room and throwing things! Oh my! But when I came and the teacher started handing him to me, Braeden flipped out screaming because he didn't want to leave and miss the rest of his class. I then had to hold a screaming Braeden, collect Little One who also started screaming because Braeden was and because he wanted to walk, while Olivia walked with Girlie, and drag them to the car. If they couldn't hear us in the service I will be surprised!!! How embarrassing! Then Braeden continued to scream in the car and asked me to "stop the car and go backwards" because he wanted his picture he had made at church. I calmly (although raging inside) told him it would be there for him next week. We made it home, barely, and once Braeden had calmed I asked him why he pulled the girl's hair, "I didn't want her to play with me." he said. Who knows what "started it?" But I reminded him that that is not ok behavior and that if he feels like that again he should walk away or ask her to leave him alone please. Interesting

(I'm so not a rock star!) :)

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:

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
