Just an average Saturday.

We had such a good day today. Nothing special happened. No grand adventures or life changing moments. We hung around the house together this morning after Scotty went to work. Played with your favorite trucks of the moment, talked to daddy on Skype for a while and horsed around until it was time to start getting things done. 

We ran errands all after noon bouncing in and out of the truck from store to store. But it was just you and me, and you were in a great mood having fun telling stories and being my helper. We had wrapping paper sword fights in the dollar store, and cart rides at the flea market. Snuggled up and watched a couple movies when we got home.  I couldn’t stop telling you how much I enjoyed hanging out with you and showering you with kisses and love…only to get sweeter kisses back aand “me too mommies”.

I think I take back the life changing moments part..I like to think all the awesome collection of moments like these we get to have will build up to you being a happy healthy adult. 

Anyway kiddo much to do tomorrow time for me to go nini too. I love you so much and am so proud of all that you are already.


Beauty of Christmas

Good Morning Jayden,

I think I am more excited this year for Christmas than I ever have been, even as a kid.  You are enjoying all the decorations and Christmas stuff so much this year it’s fantastic to watch.  It is a great feeling for me to be able to bring this wonder and joy to you.  Everyday when we come home from work and school you are as amazed at the lights and decorations outside as you were the day before.  We walk inside and its “Mommy we have TWO Christmas trees!”.  I told you this morning that there were only 8 days until Christmas…”It’s Christmas now mommy that doesn’t make any sense”  🙂 This is your new thing lately “that doesn’t make any sense!” I love it.  Scott is just as excited to see your smiling face on Christmas morning.  He’s had so much fun helping make the first Christmas that you can really enjoy the best.


Time for me to get back to work. I love you buddy.


Let’s Begin


Our journey together begins almost 3 and a half years ago now.  It’s going by so quickly.  You are growing and maturing so fast.  Having the opportunity to watch you, experience the world is such a satisfying experience.  There are so many things I want to tell you, things you can’t begin to understand, and things you won’t appreciate until you are older.

I’m writing this for your future self, and mine too.  My side of the family can be very bad at communication, bad at verbalizing how we feel, what we think and we do a lot of both.  I want to change that.  I want to change it in a medium that will most definitely be around for a while.  I hope to use this vehicle to give you insights into snippets of your life.  Give you an opportunity to see things from another perspective, or simply give you something to laugh about, blush about, get mad about, and get sad about.  Whatever it is I hope it will keep a strong bond between us forever.

I love you more than you could imagine (unless you have children by now in which case you do know).

Until next time….
