Back to the Barber

Braeden and I headed back to the barber shop tonight. (The picture is pre-cut when he accompanied me to my class' musical on Wednesday night.) He was so excited to be going back, it was adorable. He just loves it there! And the guys are great. They remembered us and talked to him. The place was packed today, but luckily the barber who had previously cut his hair was free so Braeden didn't have to wait.

There are three barbers there and the middle guy is hilarious. He was cracking everyone up. The person he was cutting had a word "carved" into his hair and Olivia's eyes got big as she asked me what is WRONG with his hair. I about died! I don't think anyone heard though, and as we've talked about asking things like this away from the actual person she's asking about, I let her know that now was not the time. :)

Braeden will be able to tell you anything and everything you could want to know about the barbershop. Of course some may not quite be the truth. He asks about everything that interests him. So... he could tell you why the combs are in a jar of liquid... what he was sitting on to make him so tall... etc... including what the round (thermostat) on the wall is for - did you know that you can push it in and the floor comes up and all of their superhero tools and gear come out for them to use! LOL and the exit in the back is their secret superhero batcave? It was too funny! Braeden kept saying "No, that's the exit!" It was a lot of fun!

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
