WELCOME TO MY "OTHER" BLOG!

If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!



This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell - I Never Thought She'd Do It!

The Comedian was invited to her first birthday party today. You know - one for HER friend, and Bear wasn't coming. HUGE, right? It was a gymnastics party. Even bigger!

How do I say this gently. You all know The Comedian talks a good game, wow does she talk - but walking is a different story. She can't really do it! She moves like she talks: she skips, she hops, she twirls, but she doesn't walk. And, inevitably - more often than not - she falls. In fact, she has been known to turn her head when, just about anything catches her attention, but keep on walking - right into a post!

She is the sweetest kind of clumsy you have ever seen. And yes, at least 50% of her food ends up on her shirt! So, the idea of a gymnastics party intruiged me. As I was filling out the "if your child gets hurt it's not our issue" form, I chuckled, wondering if that might actually be the case.

I, DEFINATELY, never thought she would do ...THIS! What is everyone else showing?

How could you not do that? It looks awesome! I'm sure she'll be reliving that for quite some time. What a brave girl!

Ooh, does that look like fun or what! Looks like she had a "swingin'" good time!

That was way corny, but I couldn't resist. :)

Wow! Wow again!

Gymnastics was much less thrilling when I was a kid. Rhythmic gymnastics had just started, which even as a young child seemed incredibly boring. I wasn't a thrill-seeker anyway, so although I was very flexible, my gymnastics career was short-lived (I was missing that natural lack of fear that most children have when they're flying off the uneven bars or leaping off the high beam).

Just don't let The Comedian see those contraptions at amusement parks -- they charge $20-50 for the same ride as she had at the birthday party!
