thursday, april 17, 2003 i gave birth to my sweet little boy. its 8 years later and i THINK i've finally gotten the hang of this whole mom thing ;). he picked donuts for his birthday breakfast. his party pics will be up soon. (he's singing happy birthday to himself :))
me and the girlies participated in this years 1 day without shoes by TOMS. it was a real eye opener. all i could think about was how awful it would be to not be able to provide shoes for your child. as a mother i cannot imagine. we ordered ourselves some TOMS shortly after that day and im. in. love. i told braden all about them and how they give a child in need a pair for every pair thats sold. he picked red. we told him they were out and are surprising him for his birthday. :) i cant wait!
we took the kids to bradens school carnival a few weeks back. i always loved stuff like that growing up so i make sure we go. this year i thought it'd be even more fun because they were having a petting zoo and addison is loving animals right now. wrong! braden had fun for about 5 mins and addison wanted nothing to do with it. she'd pet the animals through the fence but wouldn't go in and she jumped in the bouncy castle for less than a minute. oh and richard doesn't like crowds of people... well i had fun, thats what matters right?! braden waiting to catch addison almost there.. and last minute he moves out of the way and addison face plants.. haha he said she was coming at him too fast!
