Mommy's Happy Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. I am 39. Next year is the big 4-0! WooHoo!! Well, when explaining to the little man that it was Mommy's birthday, being 4, he doesn't understand that it is not his birthday again. Nana (my mom) wanted to get me a cake and asked MawMaw (mother-in-law) to go pick one up on the way home from church. Casey told Nana that is was "mine and Mommy's birthday" after a little arguing and an affirmation from me, Nana relented and said he could share.

MawMaw said he looked at every cake in the cooler twice. He was going to pick out the cake. He finally decided on a yellow cake with white icing that had "Happy Birthday" written in green with purple flowers.

My little man, taking care of Mommy! Love you, Son!

Little Man has been Sick

Life is no fun when you have a sick child. It doesn't matter if it is just a cold, or heaven forbid, something much more serious. Casey has been sick this week. He just isn't himself. He got to stay home with Mommy Tuesday, Nana Wednesday, and Mommy and Nana Thursday. He had his first blood work incident on Thursday. We have had the finger prick thing done many times and he has always been a trooper. Today was no exception! He sat in Mommy's lap and was a big boy. He didn't squirm or scream or even cringe. He watched the whole time and just a few tears rolled out of his eyes.....Mom was OK until the nurse said he was crying....then I shed a few tears (as I am doing now remembering!) The nurses were all so impressed with him! It made me so proud! He got a special present of some candy AND a popsicle!

He has always been good about doctor visits and taking medicine, etc. He is truly my little trooper! Remember, Mommy loves you best!

New Year's Resolutions

As the mom of a 4 year old, it is sometimes hard to keep the resolutions I make each year....

Maybe this year will be different! So, here goes:

In 2009, I resolve to:
1. Pay off some debt! Very important to our FAMILY to get some of those bills paid off!
2. Find myself at church on Sundays and Wednesdays more often, MUCH more often than I did in 2008. This is also very important for my family and me. Casey loves to go to Bible class and I am hindering his walk with Christ by not making sure he is there. It is my responsibility not only as his mother but as a Christian!
3. Lose some weight! I make this one every year, maybe this year will be different. I need to do this so that all those sneaky diseases don't catch up to my overweight self! I have somehow avoided high blood pressure that not only runs in my family but usually goes right along with being overweight. This I also need to do for my family! So that I will be able to run and play with Casey and be around HEALTHY for a very long time!

I think three resolutions are enough! These are biggies for me. I hope to be able to say I have kept up with these at the end of this year!

That's all for now! Happy 2009!!!
