Sobfest

Maybe it's first week of school exhaustion, maybe it's the fact that I haven't been able to eat anything for about 2.5 days because my throat hurts so bad, maybe it's the three days of fever, maybe it's that Luke started flippin' Kindergarten or maybe it's hormones - or maybe it's actually all of those (hahaha) - but brace yourselves for the sappiest post in the history of posts :)  

I was loading pics from the past couple of days from my camera onto my computer and as I was scrolling this one IMMEDIATELY caught my attention... and then, no joke, Martina McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes" started playing in my head. hahaha .  I haven't heard or thought about that song in FOREVER, but for some reason it just totally spoke to me last night.  

So, I'm postponing my regularly scheduled post for something short, sweet and sappy.  Martina TOTALLY says it better than me (duh!) 


And just in case you need a good cry this morning...


You're welcome :)

Now I'm off to snuggle GG, put some Johnson's bedtime lotion on and eat a bowl of ice cream.

Happy Thursday, friends!!!

  11. Yep. Teared up right along with you! All those symptoms you mentioned sounds like strep throat! If you haven't gone to the dr. yet, you should! I have had it 3 times in the past couple months and the doctor said it is running rampant all over the country right now. SO many people I close by and far away have gotten it this summer! Hope you feel better!
