I Need My Space


My son had that talk with me this weekend.

“Speaking of our adventures, I think you need to have some without me.”

… (insert deadly silence from me here)…

“I think that I need some space, you know, to hang out with my friends-“

“when have I ever stopped you from hanging with your friends?!?”

“I’m not saying you have, I’m just letting you know that as an example.”

I’m not going to lie, I was blindsided by the conversation, but I was really proud of the way he approached it and the way he handled himself.  He went on to state that he was growing and was ready for some time on his own.

I’m so very proud of the man he’s becoming and feel really good that I’ve raised him to want to spread his wings.

But he’s nuts if he thinks I’m letting him go just yet!


More Adventures of Baby Blue

I know it’s only been a few days, but Baby Blue has already had more adventure!

He is a trend setter! Most people drink with their pinky finger sticking out, but not Baby Blue!


Aren’t they so cute when they sleep!


He went out to lunch yesterday and had a really good time helping a friend celebrate his birthday!


And, due to the freezing cold weather, he is sporting a new accessory made by Mr. T! Image

He’s not really outside… he cheated and took a picture in front of my computer,  Did you not hear me mention freezing temps?!? But that scarf is pretty darn awesome!

Until next time!  Have a great day everyone!

P.S.  For all of you who are wondering: no, I’m not hopped up on pain pills (anymore), I just find this insanely silly and hysterical at the same time!

Adventures of Baby Blue

For those that know me or have followed me for a bit, my random accidents aren’t a surprise because I am a klutz!

If being a klutz was an Olympic sport then I would have a gold medal.

Yesterday afternoon, while taking the protective cover off of an S blade for a food processor, I sliced open the top of my finger.

Yeah, that happened.

Mom drove me to the urgent care clinic where we got to meet Baby Blue.


I have two stitches on my top knuckle. As such, it is imperative that I not bend that knuckle. I’m paranoid about accidentally bending that finger at all and causing more damage! So, since I’m hyper aware of it, I started playing a game.

Lucky you, there are two weeks we get to spend with Baby Blue and I’m documenting all of it!!


We tried out our new raincoat this morning. It’s a bit small, but kept him dry!


“Look mom! I can tie my own shoes!”
“Yay Baby Blue!! Good job!”
Mr. T was so proud he took the picture to document the event.


Baby Blue went for a car ride and loved watching everything fly by the window.

Currently, he has taken his pain pills and is sleeping, but he told me he’s really looking forward to sharing his adventures with you for the next couple of weeks!
