Every parent’s nightmare….

The fall breeze flew gently across my cheeks as I bundled up Cherrie for another morning of little league football.  We had our purple and gold ready to cheer Marshall on.  The smell of freshly popped popcorn and hot dogs filled the air as the cheerleaders were chanting the teams fight song.  As we set up our lawn chairs we laughed as parents and coaches yelled at the refs because they didn’t like a call on a play.

Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light me Up

The Aurora Theatre is known for putting on amazing plays.  Their rendition of In the Heights absolutely blew us away so much, my son was determined to be in it.  Like seriously, a few months later he auditioned and was cast in the Performer’s Warehouse  In the Heights cast this past April.  Last month we saw the Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Aurora and the cast was absolutely amazing.

This week I had an opportunity to attend the Disney Social Media Moms tour when it came to Atlanta.  Aside from being one of the most fantastic and informative conferences I’ve been to dealing with Social Media, it was also a game changer.  I had an opportunity to have serious conversations with fellow bloggers from some amazing Mom/Kid/Family-focused sites (The Crunchy Mommy, Baby Shopaholic,  & Hustle or Hyde). There were many more fabulous women in the room but between the talk from Kim Fields and the conversation with Trina at Baby Shopaholic,

When I woke up yesterday morning my bank’s account (all them) were looking a little thin, by 10 am one of them was in the red.  By 1 pm all of them were positive and I no longer worried if we had enough.  But at 11 am I had received some news from the doctor that was less than favorable.  Dr. E told me I had lost weight since my last visit two months ago.
