Random Rantings

Christmas morning...

I enter the hallway in front of Jonas's (jonases..jonas'???) room.
I turn to look in the door and I see :

1. diaper on the floor
2. pj pants
3. pj top
4. empty toddler bed
5. one nekked guatemalan boy with a train hat on , lying on the floor wrapped up in a blanket.


Someone call for a nekked boy burrito? He was just lying there, sucking his thumb. "good morning mommy". Like... hey, this is our new christmas tradition... naked on the floor sleeping...didn't you get the memo?


It occurred to me today that I will have a 13 year old and a 16 year old at the same time. Can I please time travel to the future to remind myself to take my anti-depressants?


I bought my husband a dutch oven for christmas. I think that officially makes me the lamest wife in the universe. (does it make up for it that I bought him some AXE body spray? ) (no?...makes it worse?) Oh well.


Technically, I am five months pregnant (on paper) technically, I can totally have as much ice cream as I want. What? .. It doesn't count? But what if ... oh forget it.


Would it be wrong for me to.... oh nevermind. If I start the sentance with, "would it be wrong" it probably is.

Uh..I'm listening

So yesterday I dropped J off at "school". When I have time, I sit an hang for a little while. I usually sit on a glider near the door and read books to the snotty nosed kids..they are for some reason the only ones who are drawn to me. Anyhoo, this time, my favorite of the little girls came up to me with a book about a kitty. (I adore this child, she is so cute and has this little tiny voice...agh) Anyway, I am sitting there reading...she is sitting on my leg. She turned to look at me, took her hand and stroked my face and said, " You are a beautiful princess."


Is that what little girls are like?

I thought I was going to dissolve like one of those alka-seltzer tablets right there in that glider.

I have been having a lot of anxiety about raising a girl. One of my friends who has three kiddos said. " I have two boys, and they are awesome. But having a girl.. its indescribable."

I guess we'll see!

Do they make light up shoes for grown-ups?

Seriously, this is the cutest picture ever! My MIL sent
Jonas these scrubs today. Now I just need to buy G
some light-up Thomas the Tank Engine shoes!
And in other news, I meet with the adoption attorney tomorrow morning at 9:30.
I'll let you know how it goes!

Exciting news

So..uh. We are having a baby! Sort of. We have been matched with a birthmother who is carrying a girl and she is due in April. OH MY GOODNESS.

Soooooo, as we all know, it takes a village to raise a child. It also (as we know too well), takes a village to afford an adoption.

I have added a paypal button to the sidebar of this blog. Seriously, I know you don't have any money...neither do we. But if you find some change in your cushions, consider sending it our way. It will go to a great cause! : 0 )


PS. I have video of Jonas saying, "I wanna be a big brudder", but I thought it was tooooo Sally Struthers begging for money, so I will just leave that up to your imagination!

Ok...I'm gonna go throw up now...or eat some pickles and ice cream...holy crap!

My heart hurts and my tummy feels sick.

Ok, so this is a horrible, horrible story. This family was just a month away from bringing their beautiful child home from Guatemala. The child and her foster family were murdered during a home invasion. No details are available at this time. Please read below to help support this family.

My God. This is unthinkable. Hug your children tight tonight.

The Azhderian Family still owe alot from the adoption of Josi. They just sent the last payment for Josi a few weeks ago of $12,800. This horrible tradgedy should never have to happen to any family and then have to end up paying for an adoption when their child will never come home to them.If you are like me and want to do something for this sweet family and do not know what to do, here is a wonderful way to honor precious Josi. They have a chip in button on their blog you can donate any amount to in Josi's name. I am praying that God will help them not have to worry about the financial end of this with all that they are going through right now.If you want to help me with the memorial fund for Josi please post this on your blog, spread the word to all your adoption friends, or you can send them to my blog. I think together we all can show our love to Azhderian family in their time of crisis. Chip in button is on their blog or click it below. I know money is tight but please help if you can.
