A fun summer giveaway is happening over at The Meanest Mom, one of my favorite kid mayhem blogs to read. She tells some wicked funny tales of her crew, including one of my recent favorites on sibling envy.
Stop over there by July 17th and enter to win a set of coconut scented lotions and bath gels from The Body Shop.
A quick update to say that we came home Monday afternoon. Maddie is doing great! It was just a virus (which Warren now has… details on that grief can be found in a previous post) so it cleared up on its own. What a relief!
Colin cared for her the entire stay this time. It’s not easy being in the hospital, no matter how short the trip or how mild the illness. It’s draining every time. He is incredible. I’m thankful that we’re in this together.
Little Maddie, we hope you can make it another few weeks (or more, preferably) before we head back there again.
Any bets on when we wind up in the ER again?
The person who comes closest will win a prize I have yet to determine…
If you’re like most people, a few months before your birthday rolls around you start thinking about the loot you might score on your big day. Indeed, you may begin dropping little hints on your significant other or even go so far as to create a wishlist for the world to access on Amazon.com. Rarely do you hear about anyone giving away a present on her own birthday.
But that’s what Jenna is doing. And such a lovely gift it is, too! What a fun idea to treat another person as you celebrate your special day. A “pay-it-forward” kind of approach. It’s inspired me to give it a try on my next birthday.
