A Look Back

This was one of my very first posts a couple of years ago. I recently found this picture and just had to post it again! (I know that recycling posts is totally cheating - but I've been a wee bit busy)



So I am up to my eyeballs in work today and the kids have been driving me BONKERS. It’s like they know when I’m stressed and just want to see what it’ll take to make me snap. Well, today it took Calvin smacking his sister on the back with a toy. I told him I was throwing his toy away because obviously, he was using if for evil and not good. He can no longer be trusted with said toy.

Well he had an absolute hissy fit. Stormed up to his room crying, screaming, stomping and wailing like a total Nancy. He was up there for a good 30-40 minutes frothing away. After a while he quietly tip-toes downstairs to deliver me a note written on his MagnaDoodle. I guess I'm just so glad he is expressing himself - it should cut down on the therapy bills later. Right?

Who says if it's free it must be crap?

I love JJ Heller's music. Her other CD's are The Pretty and The Plain and Only Love Remains which are in constant play on the 'ole iPod. So I have high hopes for her new one...


You are welcome :)

Shaken back into reality...

Seismic activity is analyzed on a computer screen at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California July 29, 2008, after a magnitude 5.4 earthquake in Southern California.

Just getting back from vacation we had a little 'rattler'... Welcome back to Cali!

(And we were thrilled that Megan was able to experience one before she heads back to tornados)

What a difference...

This little girl was such a thin, tiny little thing when she came to Three Angels. She was light as a feather and so timid - her personality seemed to mimic her physical state, like she was shrunken. This is Taina last May:

This past trip I noticed a remarkable difference. Her skin was clear and her eyes were bright. She had lost that red tint to her hair (a sign of malnutrition). In fact, it looked like she had grown much more hair altogether. Her personality had also grown - she was engaging and cheerful. And she has a family - I think her knowing that has been a tremendous factor in her metamorphosis. Taina in June '08:

Couldn't Just Leave It Alone...

Obviously I am slowing down on my blog posting. I'm just really busy lately with Three Angels admin stuff and wanting to spend more time with my own kids. (I was telling a friend the other day that I need an Intern...) So I'm going to take a break for awhile.

But I certainly couldn't leave my last post as the one everyone looks at while they visit my page waiting and pining and yearning for my next post...

So I'll leave these pictures of my dorky children for your viewing pleasure:

You are welcome.
