Next Monday...

Harrison will be 12 years old. It is so hard to believe that 12 years ago today I was in the hospital and came home with no baby. I thought my water broke, but Dr. Byers informed me that Harrison just made me pee on myself 3 TIMES!!!!! He was finally born a week later on Easter Sunday at around 6:00 in the morning. I feel like I should be in mourning because my oldest child will be officially a teen in a year and so much has changed over the past 12 years to effect his little life. I so hope that when he does look back over his life some day that he remembers his childhood with the same affection that I remember mine. I hope his memories are full of joy and happiness not heartache and pain. I hope that as he continues through his journey of life that when he thinks of his mom, he feels the same for me as I do my dad-THAT HIS MOM ROCKS!!!!!!!!

Why God gave me boys....

This week has proven why God saw fit to give me boys and not girls as children. Every year since college I have always filled out a NCAA bracket just for the fun of it. Well Football Head has gotten really involved in sports lately and thought he might enjoy this also. ENJOY IT that is underestimating how he feels about it. He has gotten so involved he wanted us to fill out a NIT bracket too. He is at the beach with his grandparents right now and he has already called me 3 times to make sure I fill out the brackets and to let me know when his pick wins and mine loses. This is so much better than ballet and hair ribbons. :-)

P.S. Our cat who is also a boy climbed up on the TV stand last night (which he never does) and watched a 1st Round game. LOL I am surrounded by them.
