All Warm & Fuzzy…

First of all…. Thank you. Thank you to all of you who left such supportive and heartfelt comments on my post about Little G on Wednesday. Honestly, I could feel your hearts going out to me and my little guy. And your prayers, well I felt those too.

I know some may think it silly that I find comfort in comments from people I have never actually laid eyes on or people I have only met a few times. But it really is phenomenal to me how others reaching out in any way, but especially here, in this community I’ve found, can lift you up so very much.

I also want to clear up the part I wrote about our (meaning everyone’s) children being “perfect.” I don’t want ANYONE to assume that I would think that my children still aren’t perfect in their own way even if something is “wrong” or “different.” Like some of you said, he is perfect the way he is, no matter what. He will always be “perfect” in our eyes and God’s.

So, I will let you all know how this thing turns out but after watching Little G today (and I mean REALLY watching) I don’t think there is an issue. I think the evaluation will be a piece of cake and that whoever comes to visit us will walk out of here wondering why they came.

And until further notice… case closed. And thanks again. Really.

Now let’s move on and spread some bloggy love. Shall we? Mkay.

My pal Adventures of the Reluctant Housewife passed this darling, and “friendly” bloggy award on to me.

I am so flattered to receive this from her and just want to say, “Right back at you sister!” Reluctant and I are both parents to two cute boys {wink, wink} and we’re also crossing our fingers for each other that we can convince our husbands to let us go to BlogHer ’09. I can’t wait to meet you there friend! : )
So here’s the dealio with this award…

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Here are the eight blogs I wish to bequeath this award to:
Lisa – Growing Up Mo
It’s hard to stop at eight because I consider SO many of you my bloggy friends but I am tired and I know you can all understand that!
These ladies are people I would call my friend any day, any time. They comment here, I comment there. They twitter with me and I’ve even met two of them in real life!
C’mon girls, let’s all go to BlogHer ’09! K? Or… we could just all meet at some random restaurant in Middle Town, USA. I’m not picky.
Thanks again to Reluctant and nighty-night!


  1. You are so sweet! I’m planning a trip to BlogHer, too, but we can always meet up before then 😉

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. Thank you so much for the award- it’s the first bloggy award that I have ever received. Now I feel special. And yes, we must meet up. I’ll pull the “baby” card and say that we need to meet up here!

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And like you said, right back at you sister :)

    I don’t know it I’ll make to Chicago this year but someday for sure, we will meet! Maybe in Disney World for a half marathon? 😉

  4. So glad you are feeling so much better. More confident. I’m sure everything will be fine. :)

    Congrats on your lovely award! You deserve it! :)

  5. Yay to bloggy friendships.

    And fingers crossed for blogher.

  6. How did I miss that post? I’m so sorry. I hope you know I’ll certainly be praying. And, he’s VERY young right now. Try not to worry.

    I’m pondering going to the conference – wanna road trip it?

  7. yay for you feeling all warm and fuzzy! you have many reasons why you should :)

    happy holidays friend!

  8. Thank you so much!! I’m so flattered! You’re not so bad yourself :) I can’t go to Blogher, but I can’t wait to get together in the big “D”!!

  9. Son of a Nutcracker! Another reason to come clean to the hubs!

    Honey, I’m going to Chicago… for a… uhm… for an convention!

    Thanks for thinking of me, you’d be in my top 3 FOR SHO!

    Additionally, I’d like to point out to Leslie that I am higher on Elaine’s list than she is. (tee hee hee)

    Thanks again my friend, one day I’ll come to Dallas for a steak… oh and to meet you of course 😉

  10. Glad you’re feeling better. I never got around to posting a comment on that post, but I’m thinking about you! And I’m down for meeting up in Dallas area! Even if I have to fly home for the weekend to meet my bloggy friends, I’ll do it!

  11. Thanks Elaine! I will definitely think about this and who I want to receive it.

    I wish I could go to BlogHer, but since I don’t even advertise with them, I don’t think Husband would be very open to it. Not to mention the unemployment issue. :)

  12. Congratualtions on your award.

    And Im so happy to hear some of the worry subside in your writing about Little G…I pray that he is alright & I believe that Mommy knows best so your gut is more than likely right, hes fine. :)

  13. Congratulations on the award – well deserved!!

    And I’m so sorry I have been completely MIA on my normal rounds this last week. I totally missed your G post. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers. But it sounds like you are doing well. Hugs.


  14. Isn’t crazy how some of our best friends can end up being people we have never met in real life?

  15. It should go without saying that I feel the same way. Love ya, girl! I’m honored to be on “your list” and even more honored to be your friend. Sincere thanks.

    And, I’m glad you’ve found more peace about this possibility with Little G. I do think that one day you will look back on this as a tiny blip in his life…but it’s best to look at every possibility, ya know?

    And – is Twitter really worth it? Should I give it another chance?

  16. Sounds like God is giving you a little peace about this and also letting Little G show you he’s ok.

    I’m glad to hear it and I will be praying for you guys…I know how we mommies tend to over analyze and mull things over in our heads…it can get to you even if you *know* in your mind things are probably ok!

    Oh, and you mentioned the “socialize” thing in the last post…Most 18 month olds don’t really socialize with kids as much at this stage…they do the parallel play thing and adults are their play source…

  17. You are the shiz-nit and totally deserved that award! :o)

  18. Aren’t blog friends the best? :)

  19. Oh Elaine!
    You are just the bestest!
    And how slack am I that I haven’t been at my computer in days?
    The busy got me again!
    Congratulations on the award and for passing it on to little ole me!
    I adore you and your blog.
    I am so glad we “met”.
