5 Question Friday!

I've been reading Mama M's 5 Questions Friday for weeks now, its about time I did one of my own!! Here goes!

Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet?

Yes!! Skydiving! I get motion sickness really easily (even on swings!), but I have always really wanted to try it! Of course, now that I have Mom responsibilities, it will probably never happen. I'd hate for my chute to not open.

2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?

Hmmmm..... I would definitely say a few new pairs of flip flops! I have become quite a flip flop snob and am completely in love with Yellow Box. Ah, cushiony, foot-fitting, beautiful Yellow Box.

3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?

Not the swings! Ha! And not the big slide. I was scared to death of that thing. I guess I would say the Jungle Gym. I loved hanging upside down and doing flips off of it.

4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?

Hearty! I'm a pancakes, eggs, sausage and bacon kind of girl! Don't get me wrong, I love me a doughnut, but if given the choice I'll take a good old fashion breakfast!

5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?

It really depends on what mood I am in. Most of the time I like things in their place. I always wish my house and classroom were cleaner. I chalk that up to the house I was raised in; those of you who know me know I was not raised in a super clean house! But sometimes I'm just too tired to get it all in its place!

Happy Birthday Keira Dawn!

I Carry Your Heart With Me
E.E. Cummings

I carry your heart with me
I carry it in my heart
I am never without it
Anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling
I fear no fate
For you are my fate, my sweet
I want no world
For beautiful you are my world, my true
And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart
I carry it in my heart


Today you are one year old. I can't believe how fast this year went! You were the tiniest thing I had ever laid my eyes on one year ago today. I felt like I would break your little 5 pound 15 ounce body! You were so sweet with your squeaks and grunts. I felt like I could snuggle with you forever! When we came home, we were all scared about our new adventure, but luckily we figured it all out! I was lucky to get to spend so much time with you while you were so little. We experienced everything together and I couldn't have been more proud of you everytime you discovered something new... smiling, holding up your head, cooing, rolling over, sitting up.

Now you are a toddler! You are a crawling, standing, cruising, talking, big people food eating, playing, cuddling toddler! You are my big girl! I knew that you would change and grow fast, but not this fast. I wish I could keep you my baby girl forver.

Keira I hope that you know how much I love you. You are the brightest star in my sky. You are what I have always dreamed of! I hope that one day when you are all grown up and you have accomplished all your dreams that you can look back and see just what you mean to me.

You are my sweetest pudding pop, my Kiwi, my baby girl. I love you bunches and bunches.

Love, Momma
