Perhaps I should invest in a metal detector?

Each and every time I go to CVS in town, I am forced to purchase another run of the mill, cost about $1 nail clipper.  This is because each and every time I go to look for a nail clipper in this house, I have discovered that one of the wee ones, most likely Avery has used it and forgotten where she has put it.  Now at this point, I must have purchased at least two dozen and my question is, where on earth (or more specifically, in my home) could they all be!?!?

Stay golden, Ponyboy

Hey kids,

The title of this post might seem kind of weird, but I hope by the time you are old enough to read this you will have seen all of the movies and read all of the books that have struck a chord with me throughout my life.  If you haven't yet, that quote is from a movie (and a book) called The Outsiders.

Anyway, the real reason that I'm writing is that many of our loved ones are sick - really sick and battling that sickness.  I have written about this sickness before and each time I feel like I have documented it here, lo and behold, I hear of another friend of family member who must be strong and fight disease.  It is horrifying.  We have kept this from you because you are young and you shouldn't have to deal with so much sadness.  In any case, it has me wondering (with much anxiety) if we are truly immune and how or why we are truly immune to disease.  This might be the anxiety talking, but I really do not think that we are safe from sickness so please, please, plea…

A moment in time

Dear Avery,
One morning this week, I woke up to find you sound asleep next to me cuddling your bear.  I know moments like these are fleeting and I am truly thankful for each one of them that I get to experience with you.
