Difficult

It’s hard right now, I have so many things I need to say, so many things to explain – but the time isn’t right.  I am left with really the only option being to not blog right now.

Those of you who pray, please – please do so for my family.  Especially the children.

I will return.  I miss this part of my life.  But I leave you with an adorable picture of GO.

GO eating a doughnut!

Mum’s Day

Celebrate me all year long – I don’t need a Sunday lunch.

Celebrate me all year long – flowery weeds during the summer make me smile, when they are bunched up in your little fists.

Celebrate me all year long – when you shove the lizard in my face, I know it’s because you want to share your heart with me.

Celebrate me all year long – my favorite memories are of curling up with hot chocolate and watching movies with you.

Celebrate me all year long – I love that I can argue with you about which super hero is better and who the aliens would take if they found our family (we all know it’s not me!).

To my dearest hearts – B10, CW & GO – thank you for making me a Mummy.

To my other dears – Margot & Anne – thank you for reminding me that I’m a GOOD Mummy, even when I’m playing pretend.

To my own Mum – I love you.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

GO’s preschool celebrated Cinco de Mayo – which basically meant that all the two year olds had “Mexican Mustaches” and sticky number 5’s on their clothes.  They were “Mexican Fives”.

A-flippin-dorable!

My New Favorite “Words”

GO has learned a new trick.  When she’s in bed or in her swing at bedtime, she likes to get up and be with the “grownups”.  But saying “UP! UP!” only leads to someone saying: “It’s night-night time, go to sleep, GO.”

That wasn’t working for GO, and she’s a tricky little bugger.  So now, she sits (or lays in bed) and calls out  – in a slightly sad voice -“Mummy – HE-P ME! HE-P ME!

Help me?  HELP me?  How on earth is a mum suppose to ignore that pitiful cry?

B10 Meet Rock, Rock – B10

B10 met a rock today.  With his head.

It wasn’t pretty.

May Musical Monday – Week 1

It’s another “M” month, plus, I’m pretty obsessive about music – so today I’m sharing one of my favorite songs from this week’s Top 20 Country Charts.

I’ve already shared how much I love the song “This” by Darius Rucker, and I almost missed one of my other favorites this week, because I was fast-forwarding through Rascal Flatts songs (sorry, Justin Bieber – just can’t listen to you…).  It took me a minute to realize that there are TWO Rascal Flatts songs in the top 20 – and I love the second one (a live recording).

So many situations this can apply too, which is what makes it a beautiful song.

I Won’t Let Go

It’s like a storm
That cuts a path
It breaks your will
It feels like that
You think you’re lost
But you’re not lost 
On your own
You’re not alone

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
And you can’t cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I won’t let go

It hurts my heart
To see you cry
I know it’s dark
This part of life
Oh, it finds us all
And we’re too small
To stop the rain
Oh, but when it rains

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
And you can’t cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I won’t let you fall

Don’t be afraid to fall
I’m right here to catch you
I won’t let you down
It won’t get you down
You’re gonna make it
Yeah, I know you can make it

Cause I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
And you can’t cope
And I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I won’t let go

Oh I’m gonna hold you
And I won’t let go
Won’t let you go
No, I won’t.

 I think this song is the most beautiful promise someone can make.  And I promise in so many ways.
