Can I just say- I went to a party tonight with lots of temping foods and I didn't NOT eat like crazy. I'm not sure if I posted this or not, but early in the week I went to a Halloween party and ate like a junk food fool. It was so hard not to eat the cupcakes tonight but I stopped myself! I'm so proud of ME tonight. It also helped that she had healthy opens to eat.... like bean and veggie stew!

LOL - SJ, you're more than welcome to my guest room for the winter.

There's a few things you need to know about living in this crazy household, however...

The same thing happened to my mom last week. They eliminated her job title company wide. Get this, she is a NURSE! I'm worried when companies are laying off nurses. I've never heard of that before.

I love that plan! LOL! I'm bummed I didn't try and meet Liz while we lived in AZ briefly in 2009. :( We really liked it there! Of course we didn't go through the summer months in AZ. :)

Tmz- did you ever see the movie 'The Miracle Worker'? It is the story of Helen Keller's teacher, Annie Sullivan. (I am NOT in any way suggesting that your situation is similar). But there is a place in the movie where Helen realizes that the signs represent things, and it all just clicks. Maybe you are there with your daughter. Maybe she is ready to learn to communicate...I will hold a good thought for you and your daughter.

All - it is snowing in Denver. I am no where near Denver but we might get snow tomorrow...I am moving in with Liz in Arizona until spring... We Will eat soup and I will drag her to the gym and make her love exercise - how's that for a plan?


Have a great day everyone

Thank you SJ! That story made me cry. My DD isn't saying Mommy or Momma when she needs me. I've heard her say it a couple times when I'm telling her how to say it. It is heart breaking. You are the 3-4th person that has told me a similar story about getting tubes and then speech was greatly improved. In fact the ENT doc said the same thing.She turns 2 yrs old next week... just to give you an idea what I'm working with.
