The Term what goes around comes around....

We hear it all the time and tonight those words rang true more than what i ever imagined! i have a dimple (yes only one) on the right side of my face, the dimple appeared when i was about 3 years old from planting my face into the side of my Grandmother's toilet, Well there's a lot more to the story than that. you see my grandma at the time lived in a older home one that still required skeleton keys to lock and unlock the rooms of the house. We were at my grandma's house a lot, along with my older my cousins. Well one day one of my older cousins decided it would be fun to herd all of us into my grandma's bathroom (there were 4 of us if my mind serves me right maybe 5) and proceeded to lock the bathroom door, Wouldn't have been too bad if he hadn't taken the skeleton key with him and decided that it should be flushed down the toilet. Yes we were locked in the bathroom for what seemed like hours, when finally my mom, my grandma and Aunt were able to get a skeleton key from the neighbor's and use it to free us from the bathroom!!

A moment a thought would never replay again in my lifetime. You know the term what goes around comes around? That's just what happened tonight. i went downstairs to change out laundry and my 3 children were upstairs my oldest getting ready for a bath, when i got back upstairs my oldest was in the living room and could hear my younger two in the bathroom i went to open up the door, and get them ready for their bath and guess what.....i couldn't open the door. it was locked!!! AND of course i live in an older home that requires a skeleton key to open, so then i realize that they have changed the doorknob on my door so my skeleton keys don't work. So i had to remove the hinges off my door and shimmy my door open from the opposite side with it being locked!!! Don't know why i would have thought they'd be scared to death!! i walked in to rescue my my son looks up at me with bewilderment he had enjoyed his time making toilet paper pies with a touch of conditioner!!! What a night! So now the lock has been removed from my bathroom door and we have restored peace in my house.

Autism Support Network recently announced the launch of its free online support community available at The online service – rapidly growing with already thousands of members around the world – connects families and individuals touched by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with each other, provides support and insight, and acts as a resource guide for treatments, strategies and therapies. Key features of the community include matching those members seeking similar support with one another, the ability to create appointments virtually or in actual locations between members, community groups for open sharing of information, user blogs, chat and capabilities for members to host and share personal photos and documents. The Autism Support Network also includes resource listings across the United States, Canada, England and India. “Parents frequently feel paralyzed and isolated when they discover their child has autism. Those adults who have autism themselves also frequently find it difficult to engage socially with others for support,” said Brian Field, co-founder of Autism Support Network. “Whether you’re a parent whose child has autism, a medical practitioner or someone with autism, our global community was created to facilitate an exchange of ideas, help and interactive discussion. Those dealing with ASD needn’t have to ‘re-invent the wheel’ – they can find others here that have likely experienced what they’re going through and can help provide personal guidance.” Today 1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism, with a new case diagnosed every 20 minutes and is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States today. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. Autism is characterized by impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and unusual, repetitive, or severely limited activities and interests. Other ASDs include Asperger syndrome, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (usually referred to as PDD-NOS). Males are four times more likely to have autism than females.

Luck of the Draw -- i Should go buy a lottery ticket!

So Davis has decided that he can climb all over the couch and that its okay..... (he truly is all boy!!!) and for weeks have caught him over on the couch climbing onto the end tables just all over the place!! Well last night was his lucky night he climbed up on the couch and onto our coffee table and within SECONDS!! you know what i mean the lamp was shattered into a million pieces onto the floor....Of course his dear dad wasn't happy to hear the news and made a comment to the effect of "well you might as well let him knock over the other lamp and take care of it too" (eye roll here) LMAO today as i returned home from my Saturday coffee (alone no kids (shock here!) ) i settled in to get myself motivated to clean as well as get Kennedyanne ready to go with her gran, When i yet again heard that familiar sound of shattering glass upon the floor (ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!??????) YEP but Davis was not the guilty party, Older sister Kennedyanne wanted to grab the plastic chair that was over in the corner, of course the cord to the lamp had to be caught on one of the legs of the chair and as she pulled the lamp fell and as they say now you know the rest of the story..............We have one lamp left in 1 piece the standing lamp in the corner and if by chance it goes today i'm definitely buying a lottery ticket.....WELL GOTTA GO!!! Kennedyanne just asked about a cord caught by the lamp in the corner!!!!!!

Kids say the Darndest things and HERES PROOF!

Kennedyanne is my oldest, soon to be 5 years old (in February) and she has come up with some real doozy's over the years. She hasn't embarrassed me in public YET still waiting for that day to come! She has said a few things that let you stop and remember that kids will say anything and sometimes what's said brings you full circle!!!

Kennedyanne was only about 21 mos and we had stopped over at my parents house to say hello, shortly after we arrived my dad who was in the kitchen as he had just finished baking a loaf of bread, gave Kenendyanne a slice of the bread...... Kennedyanne had been wandering around the house for several minutes content eating her slice of bread, in the meantime i had gone to the kitchen and grabbed a cookie. Went back to the living room where we all were enjoying the conversation, TV etc..... When Kennedyanne laid bread down on the coffee table, i then set down my cookie a few short minutes later and picked up her bread to try. As i was testing out the bread Kennedyanne had appeared back at the table ready to take her bread and finish it off When she noticed something quite different on the table that wasn't her bread she had left there minutes ago AS SHE SCREAMED OUT FOR ALL OF US With Sheer excitement in her voice "SON OF A B*&^$H!! it's a cookie!!! (thank you Papa!! lol) Unfortunately we were all laughing sooo hard to the pureness of her that she thought her slice of bread had magically turned into a cookie that she never was scolded for saying SOB............actually if memory serves right Papa was the one we all pointed the finger at. LOL Definitely a story to remind us all that kids will say the darndest things and ohhhhhh what an imagination!!!!!!

How are you???

How are you, A question we've all been asked, sometimes several times a day. Depending on who we see and where we go it's a question asked over and over.....Unfortunately when asked "How are you??" Most people don't want to REALLY know how you are, because that would mean committing to the story you would be prepared to tell the baggage that you'd lay out for them to have to pick up and accept, Most do not want to commit to the possibility of really hearing what "How are you" would be..... "How are you" is our way of opening up conversation to say "hello", "good to see you" ( "hope all is well.....BUT if not really don't have the time so please don't tell me the truth" ) Think about it---How often has someone Said "How are you?" and You answered the quickest most bland answer "fine", "Good", "doing okay" anything else but really how you are......and in the back of your mind your shaking your head and thinking to yourself "only if you knew" Why have we disconnected ourselves, we've told ourselves no one really wants to hear what's going on good or bad, the thought of having to pretend to care is way too much work and no one wants to take the time to really hear what you have to say, so we continue to cater to those around us and answer so matter of fact That we are fine, i dare you the next time someone asks "How are you???" Turn to them and say "Got about an hour? and i'll tell you how i am"...........and then watch them stammer with a great excuse to be able to turn away and RUN!!!!!!!!!!
