A Boy & His Daddy

Please enter your name. Please enter a valid email address. Subscribe! Something went wrong. Please check your entries and try again. My son’s Daddy has been very sick for about a year. He busted a hole in his heart and then four months later did the same thing again. They call it an aortic discetion. I have personally watched him suffer through so much over the last year. We have been divorced for many years now, but we share a love for this boy like no other. Mike called me from the ER the night before Christmas Eve and then he ended up having open heart surgery on Christmas Eve. He has been close to death for months. On more than one occasion he had no pulse and was unresponsive. I have had to sit our son down and explain to him that his Daddy wouldn’t make it and that he needed to be prepared for his death so many times the last six months. But today, he got the sweet surprise of finding him at his sister’s house just about ten minutes from us. He didn’t want me to tell Mikey that he was coming home so he could…

Please don’t ever be Aaron’s Mommy

Please don’t ever be Aaron’s Mommy The sweet words of a 4 year old. 4 Mikey is four at the time of this story. 20 Aaron was 20 at the time of this tale.  100% Between the two of them they have 100% of my heart. Please don’t ever be Aaron’s Mommy Mikey is 4 and Aaron is 20. Needless to say there are a few years difference in their ages. I pretty much started over a whole new family with Mikey. But for as long as Mikey is able to remember Aaron has been “Bubby” and has been a steady part of his life. If Mikey looks outside and see’s Aaron coming into the guest entrance he will run around the house and make his way to the side door to open it to let “Bubby” into the house. Aaron likes to wrestle with Mikey and rough him up. It always ends in me saying to them “Okay thats enough” Because I’m scared Mikey will get hurt ! Although now that I am thinking back it seems I remember that Aaron is usually the one who walks away in pain ? Mikey seems to always catch him just right.  …

Little Boy, Where’d you get your britches?

This page is my entry for this months challenge on a blog that I subscribe to and love ! The page requirements were as listed here: 1. Use orange and brown. 2. Use woodgrain. 3. Use fabric. 4. Use something with wings. 5. Use a toilet paper roll. 6. Use song lyrics in your title I met these qualifications in the following ways…. Of coarse my paper choices were orange & browns and I used my Tim Holtz inks for distressing in Orange and Brown. Then I cut down a piece of 12×12 scrapbook paper to a 8 1/2 x 11 size so that I could run it thru my regualar printer and do journalling on it. This piece of paper was a piece of brown woodgrain which was requirement number two. For the using of a piece of fabric I really had a struggle. I used to be a quilter before I picked up scrapbooking so I’m no stranger to fabric..I just hardly ever touch it now. and I dislike sewing in a major way . So, to be sure I met the qualification I used a piece of fabric to roll up and make a stem for my flower….
