(A small note to my fellow Twilight fan, Catina - You said he got better in the third book! But he lied to her about Victoria coming to find her! Jacob keeps looking better and better!)
And now a picture of the tiny B doing the pony:

Princess: An individual regarded as having the status or qualities of a
princess. Sets out to do good things and helps the less fortunate and others in
MOTTO: "Do not let anyone make you think less of yourself. You are a
princess, a wonderful person, and you always will be."
Every girl and woman is a princess, young, old, rich or poor. But remember, just because you are a princess doesn't mean you are any better than anyone else. It simply means you believe in yourself and that you will try to be the best person you can be. A true princess will always befriend all her fellow sisters. She will lend a
helping hand to her neighbors, family and friends.

Feeling better about going back to work. I don't like it, but can't change it so there's no sense in wallowing in self pity.
Note to self - Taking benedryl when you are already sleep deprived is a bad idea. I can barely keep my eyes open.
And I'll leave this randomness with a little tip. Have left over coffee in the morning? Pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze. Then make a cup of hot chocolate and dump in several coffee cubes. Instant iced mocha! (I sort of came up with this on my own!)

Then I got the phone call. Nothing incredibly serious or tragic, but devestating to me none the less. I was advised that due to lack of planning on my part I have to return to work a week earlier than I wanted. Moving my return date from 9/5 to 8/26. I thought with the second one it would be easier. We have a great daycare provider and I know my kids are loved and will be taken care of. It's just a week different than what I had planned. I'll return on Tuesday which means I'll work one day, then have the next two off (my schedule has me off on Wednesdays and Thursdays). But as I list all the reasons why this won't be so bad, all I can do is cry.
Looking for some peace on this situation...

It was especially touching after finding this article on a blog:
This was a blog that I found by following links on other blogs...not one I normally read on a regular basis. I definitely felt like I was shown that blog for a reason. The article is heartbreaking, shocking, and makes me so grateful for my babies.
The last line of the store especially broke my heart:
In her new room, she has a window she can look out of. When she wants to
see outside, all she has to do is raise her arms and her dad is right behind
her, waiting to pick her up.
I was really humbled by the connection between the story and the devotional. I'm amazed that in the small amount of time that I've started really searching for God, he's revealed himself in so many ways.
Keep it comin' God - I'm listening.

He climbed up next to her and was rubbing her head. He loves her!
