Tatum and new panites

I bought Tatum some big girl panties today when I was at Target. She was so excited about them she put all six pairs on. Yes one over the other....she is prancing around the house with six pairs of new undies....she cracks me up.

I'm Back

Ok so if I have any readers out there I must apologize for my hiatus. I have been swamped with work and motherhood. Two things I really do enjoy! Today is a Saturday and I had a hair appointment. I have been going to the same hairdresser for almost three years now. Her name is Bandy Gray and I really enjoy seeing her every six to eight weeks. I started seeing her when I was preggers with Tatum. At that time I had made the mistake of dying my hair brown (with another hair dresser) and I was on the lookout for someone to nurse my hair back to blond. She did this gracefully and now I have been blond for two years.

This past week we had our first snow storm for the year and I failed to shut off my sprinkler water! So I hope my pipes didn't break with the frost. It warmed up a few days later so then I managed to find the big key thing and pry off the cap. So if any of you saw me in my front yard bent over searching in the grass that was what I was doing. Now I have a backyard full of leaves to bag. Anyone want some?

Life wouldn't be the same without him

My Dad and Izzie,
Sunday morning two weeks ago I received a call from my mother.
She was calm and collected but wanted to let me know she was at the hospital waiting for my dad to have a MRI. He had something happen in the middle of the night where he felt a large jolt and warm tingle go through his body. He ended up falling back to sleep and when he woke up in the morning, he felt very confused. My mom explained that he came in and asked her where his shaving kit was? She went into the bathroom to help him look for it and it was on the bathroom counter. He then came in a little later and asked her to help him find his toothbrush and he was holding it in his hand. He knew something wasn't right and kept saying he was so confused. She drove him to the hospital. After several tests and a few hours later it was determined he suffered a Stroke.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to a disturbance in the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) caused by thrombosis or embolism, or due to a hemorrhage.
He has been told by Doctors that he should be able to get back everything he has lost. Now that time has gone by we have seen great progress. So now he seems back to normal.
From the title of my post I will tell you all that we would not be the same without him. This has been a very upsetting situation for our family and we all are so happy things are OK. Life is so precious so don't sweat the small stuff.
