One Word - Hilarious!

You know those times where you just laugh and laugh with the kids, and it's such a good feeling. But then there are also those times where you know you probably shouldn't laugh, but can't help it. Not because the child did something funny, but wrong, and is in trouble, though I've had those times too, but the times when the child is stuck or something similar and they are uncomfortable/embarrassed and you just can't help yourself. I was about crying tonight I was laughing so hard at/with Braeden. Ok, at, he wasn't laughing! :)
We have these "stuffed" animal masks that Grandma and Grandpa gave us. Braeden's is a lion and he loves the thing, wears it often. Not sure what possessed him, other than he's four and will try anything, but he came to me and it looked like he had cut off his tshirt sleeves. I could not figure it out. Then I saw it, and at the same time he was begging me to help him get it off... he had taken the mask and put it onto his back like a backpack - and could NOT get it off. It was hilarious, I can't adequately describe how funny it was!!! He was half laughing, half upset, and just wanted it off. I told him I would help, IF he let me take a picture. He wanted NONE of it - but I followed him into my room and got a few pics while he tried hiding, then I did help him get it off. HILARIOUS!!!

It was just too funny! You can't hide from mom Braeden! :) (He was laughing at the same time as he was hiding. ) But I will keep these for a long while to torment him! I'm so mean! :) LOL

Funny...I have pics of my then 4 year old with his head stuck the sleeve of a shirt where he had put his head in the wrong hole! I could hardly help him due to laughing so hard. BTW... I love to see pics of your family as it reminds me of the beautiful colors of my family.

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
