*UPDATE* Loss of a Friend

A few weeks ago, I posted about our family friend that had been killed and the young son she left behind. I am sad to say that the child has now forever lost his father as well. The father took his own life yesterday. I can't imagine how lost the child must feel. I know our 2 year can't go an hour without asking me where her daddy is (even though she knows he is at work.) How do you explain o such a young child that they will never see EITHER of his parents again? I don't know, but it breaks my heart. 

Please keep this child and both families in your prayers. 

God Bless.

Original Post Excerpt:
Loss of a Friend Friday, January 27, 2012 - Early this morning we learned that one of my husband's childhood friends was lost in a senseless act of violence. I had the pleasure of meeting his friend a few years ago, a month or so before giving birth to our daughter. A beautiful person. >>> Read more here. 

Potty Training Our Princess

My daughter tuned 2 1/2 earlier this month. i was worried that she was behind on potty training. Being that we were a college family with no real schedule or permanent place to live (we had to move in and out of the dorms every school year), the doctor recommended waiting until we were stable. We are hosting a Pull-Ups House Party next weekend and I was worried she'd be the oldest one there not having made any potty training progress.

Is a Good Marriage Not Good Enough for TV?

I will confess...watching reality television is my weakness. Especially the ones with "wives" in the title. I was watching a reunion special and realize that another addition had been made to the cast - a single/divorced woman and the other I'm not sure. The thought crossed my mind that several of my fave shows now have single women as regular cast members EVEN though the title refers to being wives or being in love. I'm not hating on these women by any means, some happen to be my favorite out of all their cast mates.
