Thanks

The house, the house, the house.  It is consuming my every second of every day except for those few minutes when LO's school went on LOCKDOWN because a crazy man with a gun was in the alley right by the school.   I need to lead a less distracted life as I walked far into the school before noticing the circle of parents holding their children in the corner while trying to stay calm.  The director tried to flag me down in my car before I walked into school.  I didn't notice the line of abandoned minivans in the middle of the street when I drove by or the abundance of police cars.  In my defense I had a really long day and no sleep the night before.  Hmmmmm whatever.   We joined the families in the corner and waited it out as walking back outside and fumbling with a car seat didn't seem like the safest choice.

Obviously, we are fine or you would have heard about it on the news.  I have never seen so many young children in a small confined area not say a peep.  One of LO's awesome teachers sat and read stories for two hours keeping everyone calm.  The real gain from the story was some damn PERSPECTIVE.  Some people don't like me and that is totally fine.  I have two parents that love me, they may be a tad wacky but they never act cruelly or have ever shown anything but support.  I have a great marriage that gets so much better every year, wonderful friends AND the best daughter ever.  She is a dream come true.  So while Thanksgiving is my least favorite time of the year, I am very thankful for all of the above and more.

Poppy came to visit this week and brought a Rapunzel dress for LO.  You don't need to watch the video but the dress is hilarious.

 Also, her singing the "I've Got a Dream," song in her pjs.
Lastly, the you play the guitar and I will play the piano.
