Funnies Again

We've had some funny instances of late that I thought I'd share. Especially with all the worries with Girlie and Liam right now.

First was when we were on the way to Braeden's urologist appointment on Wednesday. I don't think I've mentioned yet how he is going to be circumcised this summer??? :( Poor buddy! But more on that later. I handed him back some lotion to put on his knees as they were very ashy. As he was rubbing in the lotion he all of a sudden said, "Mom, Hair!!! I have fur on my legs!!" :)

Next was when we were driving back home after church this morning. Our church is in an area that is developing rapidly, it was recently built, and there are fields interspersed with new housing developments. As we passed a field with a tractor hard at work Braeden was beside himself with excitement. I asked what the tractor was doing plowing up the dirt, what were they going to put in the field??? Braeden yelled, "Craps!!!" LOL :) After quite a bit of giggling on my part I said, "Braeden, It's crops!" Then we were all giggling. Good thing they don't know what "crap" is yet! :)

Finally, we were listening to a Wow compilation Christian CD at lunch today. One of their favorites, "Cartoons" by Chris Rice, came on. I said, "Who is singing this song? Who knows?" And Braeden yells, "Rice Cake!!!" Yes, that's the new Christian artist. :) After we got out the correct name, with many giggles on my part, Braeden thought he'd be even funnier and said, "I know, it's Cheese Cake!" He cracks me up! :)

Then, for a picture funny, this is from Saturday. I bought the olders new car seats. We have been watching them for a while. Each of the stores around here have them in different fabrics and slightly different costs, but I love them. Braeden was ready to move up to a booster with just a seat belt, but still the back. Olivia has one that has an adjustable and removable back. She wants the back though. Hers really isn't very comfortable. This new one is by Evenflo and is great. Very cushy and it has little side lights in the head rest for nighttime trips. As much as we travel, and are traveling this summer I thought they'd be perfect so I got one for each and am going to sell Olivia's in the newspaper. We got them Saturday and the boxes of course became play things. Olivia wanted one for a tunnel. As she was crawling in, Liam thought he'd be funny and climbed on top. She was whining/laughing that it hurt, but instead of getting him off right away, I must admit I took a photo. :) It was pretty funny. :)

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
