What to do???

So this morning, I dropped Kaden off for his "trial run" in the pre-k class. He seemed very excited. Since he has already met the class, they knew his name and face so it wasn't too big of a deal. He took a seat and seem to have no fears. He gave me a kiss and even got too distracted to wave bye to me...so I had to sneek in one more kiss.

As I was leaving, I stopped to talk to his early childhood teacher about what time I should pick him up. I, of course, started crying. I don't know why, exactly. I know a lot has to do with emotions and I would say part of it has to do with hormones : ).

So anyway, then I go to work to find out my client cancelled for this morning so I come home. Now I am lost. I don't know what to do. I decided to go get a building permit for this house we are suppose to be building...when???, I don't know, but hopefully soon. Nate keeps saying that he wants it started this week, but I don't see that happening. Anyway, then maybe I'll go to Wal-Mart to get the rest of the halloween stuff for Kaden's school party. Hopefully that will keep me busy until noonish. (sigh) I always thought it would be nice to have time to myself, but now that I have it, I am not sure I want it...yet.

You should take this time to pamper you!! Why not go and get a pedicure or manicure? A massage? Oh I wish you lived closer. You would have been the VIP at my salon. Just relax and enjoy the moment!!
I have been home for almost two weeks straight with my sick children and I would love to go and get my overdue bangs cut!

Fortunately, that won't last for long! I have a feeling you'll have plenty to do here soon. I'll admit I like to hear your story. I'll have to do the same thing in January. Sniff sniff. And there's no baby coming along around this house, but I've already got lots of stuff planned! sleep, sleep, and more sleep. No just kidding.

I hope you had a good day and found enough to keep you busy until you picked Kaden up! I can't wait to hear all about his day!
Love you,

Ahhh, isn't it crazy how stuff like that is so much harder on us than it is the kids. When I was at Madison's parent teacher conference tonight, her teacher was talking to me about Bella getting to start pre-school in a year from January!!! They grow up too fast.
Thinking of you always

I hope that you ended up having a great day and I bet that Kaden did great in his class.

Ava stayed at her grandma's a couple of weeks ago. I didn't even know she was staying until I got there. Anyway, I got back to the house and it was so weird to be there all alone. I ended up getting my hair cut and colored and a pedi... It turned out to be a nice relaxing day. Of course the next day was much more fun when I went and picked her up and brought her back home.

Yay! You won! I talked to my dad last night and he said he told everyone he knew to go vote for Kaden's photo. I'm excited that Kaden gets a new bedroom.

If you ever find yourself bored on a Tuesday or Wednesday you can call me. I wasn't doing anything yesterday.

I hope school went well for Kaden.

I cant imagine your emotions right now, I am sure Kaden became your friend as well as being your son with all the alone time you two shared. But this is a huge positive step for Kaden he has come so far and is becoming a little man. Try and get some rest and relax before your new little man arrives, you will wish you had slept more.

Well, I didn't sit down at my computer wondering what I should do... I know what I should be doing. Working!

I have soooooooo much work to do, but instead I have spent the last hour and a half reading through your blog's archives and choking back tears. In fact, I think I may now just go to my room and weep for a while.

Seeing the photos of little Ava made me think of my first born baby girl...

My oldest Julia has a small VSD that has not yet closed. When she was two days old and the doctor told me she had a hole in her heart, I almost collapsed. I had never even thought about a 'hole in her heart' and it sounded so terrible.

He tried to reassure me that is was very common and they would do an ultrasound etc.

But all I could picture was my baby having open heart surgery... and the thought was too hard to bear.

She is three and a half now and still has her hole... but they say it is small and she's unlikely to need surgery. But even the smallest chance still gives me panic if I let myself think about it.

But at the same time I feel guilty that my baby's hole was small and that I got to escape watching my baby have surgery.

That first year with Julia had a few health scares, but each time I got to be the one whose baby was okay. And as I read your blog, I am so desperately sorry that you had to endure so much pain.

I think there is nothing harder in the entire world than a mother having to watch her baby suffer and eventually let go.

I cannot even begin to imagine it. And I am so sorry. I'm sorry that I didn't have to and that you did.

But I am thankful to read how blessed Ava is to have you as a mother and I know that God chose you to be there for her.

I know that your Angel Ava has blessed your family and will bless everyone who reads your blog and sees her beautiful face.

Thank you for sharing your precious Angel and your story with us.

Wow!! I haven't been on the computer for a few days and so much has happened in the virtual world. Congrats to Kaden on his pre-k class how exciting and a little scary. It's hard to beleive that kindergarten is so close for our boys. I am not ready either so I know just how you feel. I keep telling James he's not ready and that we need to keep him home just one more year but he's not buying it. Kaden is more than ready for this class (I know that you know this). His teacher is going to love him as well as the kids in his class. Relax!!!
