My Mission Statement

I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

My Baby is Five Today


My youngest of four, my most recent baby, my precious little boy is five today. I can hardly believe it. I just had to post a picture, so you can see his darling self. His party is at 4:00 today, was going to be outside, but it's a monsoon outside, so I'll be limping around a room full of kids calling out Simon Says, I guess. It will be fun either way. Okay, more later on my crisis of not ever having a four-year-old in the house again. Just had to say hello and post my baby on his birthday. xoxox
Sorry his pic is way at the bottom of the page, after the previous post. I just can't figure out how to get pics in the post. Anyone out there who can help me? Jody? Sara? Bueller?

I should let Beuller handle this, but let's start with: do you have an image icon in the toolbar when you're writing a post? If so, what happens when you click on it?

Thanks! Check it out! The pic's a little dark, but I love the way he greets life with arms wide open. The joy and confidence of being the baby of the family. What a love. Thanks for your help. I was able to do it when I went back through 'edit'.

He is adorable! My son has the same swimsuit. Happy birthday to your baby!

Well, when I looked at your Friday blog, he was right there in it, so you fixed it. It's dark, but he's a cutie. I'm sure he loves being a big boy of five. My condolences on his aging. But look at it this way, it won't be long before you'll be holding another baby...your grandbaby. And they grow up even faster.
