Turn that frown upside down!

Today has been one of those days where you are scared to even leave your house because you have had such a horrible day. You think it will only get worse. But I finally decided that I needed to get out of the house and visit my favorite store that I haven't been to in over 2 weeks...TARGET! It turned my day around. On the way home Kade and Kamryn fell asleep and they are sleeping as I type. I also got to do a digital scrapbook page which was some good therapy for me. Kamryn kept making a little noise every once in a while when I was doing this page, but I think her big brother Kooper knew that I needed a little mommy time and helped her stay asleep. All day all she has wanted was to be held. It doesn't bother me because that was all I wanted a year ago, was to hold a sweet baby in my arms. The only problem with that is that I can't get a whole lot done with the princess in my arms...the sleepy wrap helps though!


I feel much better now. Not because I went to Target, but because when I get to scrapbook about Kooper or talk about him, or just have thoughts without interruption about him, I feel like that is the way I can show him how much I love and miss him. It is my way of spending time with him. It was just what I needed to turn my sad frown upside down!

Awesome job with the page hunny. I am glad that this is a form of therapy for you. I miss him too, I guess I need to find an outlet to express myself.

You are getting really good at digital scrapbooking! It probably helps that you were good at the regular kind. Today we spent over an hour at Target. My kids had a serious case of the sillies, and I didn't even care that people probably thought we were crazy. I looked through the whole dang store. That was therapy enough for me. Also, I like to hear when you talk about Kooper. Also, I am putting a web site together, and when it is done I am going to submit an application to NILMDTS. I just wanted you to know because I'm doing it in honor of Kooper.Also, I have used way to many also's in this comment. I think I just need to come visit you? Also, Just kidding!
