Our Week

I know it has been awhile since I have posted and it seems like I start every post with this statement but we have had quite a week.

Lauren has been congested and snotty for a couple of weeks and I was worried that last week I was going to be making a trip to the pediatrician and even made a comment when I took Rachel last week that we would probably see her again soon with Lauren. Sunday night Lauren had a fever of 102.2. I called Monday morning and that same morning, she started developing some sort of bumpy rash around the outside of her mouth. Her diagnosis at the doctor's office was a double ear infection and she prescribed her Augmentin, an antibiotic that she has taken a couple of times before.

Tuesday, I had a doctor's appointment and Lauren stayed with my aunt because she was so fussy and was up every 2-3 hours Monday night. Wednesday, her bumps on her mouth continuously got worse until the daycare called me and said that the rash had spread to her feet and hands.…


I know I am a couple days late but in the midst of my crazy-ness and all that is going on in our lives, I do feel the need to stop and talk about Mother's Day and reflect on being a mommy and the calling that it is in my life.

I feel completely unworthy yet so incredibly and overwhelmingly blessed to be a mommy and not just a mommy but their mommy. I cannot think of a higher calling in the world than to be a mommy. My girls are everything to me. I love them with something so deep within myself that I cannot even begin to describe it. It's just something so unreal.

I read about people that have longed for children their whole lives. I have always wanted to be a mommy but I will tell you that it never crossed my mind that I wouldn't be. I just always knew that God would have that in His plan for me. I don't think about that statement with arrogance...seriously, I realize that He could have chosen different for me but I guess I just knew that He wouldn't. BUT, I DO …

Wonderful Weekend!!!

I know it has been a long time since my last post and even though I have been crazy busy not much noteworthy stuff has really happened. Last weekend we spent some time as a family on Sunday evening but Brice pretty much worked all weekend. Lauren has been sick for two weeks with fever and a cough but is finally starting to feel better, I think. She still has the green nose. Anyway, things around here seem to be a little better.

I took off Friday which meant that I knew Thursday that I needed to get things done. I didn't realize at that time that I would be at the hospital until 9:00 pm!!!! It was an INSANE day!! It was crazy! BUT, Friday was so much fun! I took the girls to daycare and then got my car washed and detailed, picked up Heather and on to Canton we went!!! We shopped for a few hours, got something to eat and then headed to Tyler to the hotel for the SBTC Regional Women's Conference. It was great! It was refreashing and I enjoyed most of the sessions that I attended …
