I hope you guys don't mind! I just had to share with someone! Today is my weigh in day & I'm down 3 more pounds! That's 31 total! (I didn't realize I was that fat! LOL) Woo Hoo!

And yesterday we were at the grocery store & Kaytlin (she's almost 3) was talking up a storm. And then her and Alyssa (she's 19 mos) started singing the abc's & saying their numbers. And this lady came up & told me that I must be a wonderful mommy to have children that are so beautiful & smart! I definitely had one of those weekends where I wasn't really feeling like a great mommy, so it was REALLY nice to hear!

Ok, toot toot, I'm done! Anyone else need a horn tooted?

Yay Jenn!!

Tooting your own horn is more than acceptable!! Now if you'd like to replace some of those 31 lbs., you can have some of mine!! Please send me info on how to have some willpower. ;)

As far as your singing, happy kiddos go, that lady was right. :) I believe singing is a beautiful expression of happiness. And there is nothing sweeter than the voices of children; they always seem to sound like angels. :)

Again, congrats!!

YAY Jenn!!! 31 pounds...holy smokes! That is a great achievement and I'd definitely be tooting my own horn too! lol

And no matter what happens that makes you think you aren't a good mommy (ie this past weekend) you are a wonderful one and should be proud of keeping it all together and raising such great little girls.

Jenn - you have every right to toot! And toot loudly, darlin'! 31 pounds AND such a wonderful parenting compliment? Yahoo!

I'm just excited that I didn't gain anything during my spring break last week - when I did nothing but laze around and watch a million movies, lol. Hey - it's something, lol!

Have a GREAT day! You deserve it!
