I'M 130 LBS!! I couldn't believe it myself. I went to the doc's. Got on the scale. Closed my eyes. Then she said the words....Wanna see? So I opened my tight eyes and saw the scale. I'm so happy. My doctor is happy. My kids and wonderful hubby are elated. Now all I have to do is keep it there. I'm on the right track. And it feel great!!!

Money and Children

Chris was handing out money for the kids this week and when he handed Emma her five dollars her response was priceless.
Chris-Emma, here's some money for you this week.
Emma-Thanks Daddy. OHHH I only need a two or three dollars. I'll bring you the change tomorrow.
Chris-Honey this is yours. All of it. We don't need change.
Emma-Okay. Cool. Thanks guys!!
With big hugs and huge smiles we said our good nights and she went to bed thinking of all the wonderful things she could get with her five dollars. As I sat down at the computer I looked at Chris and just smiled. My baby is aware of money. She knows that she doesn't' have to spend it all the minute she gets it. She knows how to save. It's so wonderful.
