Braeden was full of cuteness yesterday!

First he and Olivia were coloring.
Braeden is into making "lists" and he was making one of the places he'd like to visit.

His list included some GREAT locations...
New York
...and 10 others...

It was one of the others that showed me this was truly Braeden's list and no one else's.
I LOVE that he even remembered that to put it on there!

I'm sure it would be a GREAT place to visit:
white picket fences

Anyone know the reference? :)

Later we headed to our local Super KM**t store to pick up some groceries.

Braeden and Olivia recently got their allowance
(and of course it was burning the ever proverbial HOLE)
and brought it with "just in case."

If you have one and haven't been recently,
they have been doing some major clearance on toys!

After showing Braeden some GREAT Star War*s walkie talkies that were marked down to $3.99, and an amazing Erector set marked at $3.99...

THIS is what he ended up buying!

Oh yes he did!
(I did grab two of the Erector sets on the sly for him or others as gifts down the road.)

He thinks they're "peach" colored which cracks me up.
He went to bed with them and sang them a lullaby.
And he's played with them a bit today.

SO cute!
What a wonderful father he will be!

Pete's Dragon - my kids love it! I love the choice of the dolls; he will be an awesome father (and big brother)!

I am so glad you let him get them. It is one of the things that I get criticized on around here...letting my boys play with baby dolls.

That is too cute! All of my boys loved baby dolls too for a bit.

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
