Well, I certainly have not been here in a long time. Sometimes life gets in the way of the fun stuff. On February 11 I resumed full time daycare of Dakotah and Jaime as their Mommy went back to her job and maternity leave was over. It has been an experience. Anyone with toddlers knows how much joy and angst they can the course of about 30 seconds...actually it is a lot of hard work. I have been caring for them for 3 months and two weeks now and I can't honestly say it is getting any easier....the days are long.
Dakotah is growing up much to fast these days. The things that come out of her mouth are so funny. the other day her Mom was saying they were going to the parade Saturday and then to Lukas's birthday party....Dakotah looked at us and said "Oh yes, Jaime's little pal's birthday" where on earth had she heard that expression! LOL I use "can you believe it" a lot when talking to her as she responds better to descriptive phrases and now I hear my own words coming back to me!! We finally talked her parents into letting us take her to the Happiest Place on Earth and will be leaving in a few weeks. It will be her first airplane ride. I hope she doesn't get air sick! :) Note to self...pack extra clothes on the plane... I need to start writing some of these notes to self down somewhere as I keep telling myself mentally what we need to take and then forgetting about it like some magic fairy is sitting there listening and packing the stuff for me...I need to remember the only magic fairy around here is ME and if I don't organize and pack it, it will be staying home!! Well, time to get on with my day. it is sunny and warm here today and that in itself is a big treat as the time between days such as this is long...and we have had two in a row so I need to get out and enjoy it!!

Hi Linda; this is the last time you'd posted on your blog. I couldn't remember the name of my blog either, so I typed in and then you enter your email address and password, and voila! There is your own blog. I found your blog by looking at my old comments from a year ago.
