Ok, so I know that you have to be careful what you say around kids but sometimes you just say what you are thinking, right? The scenario went something like this.

Me: Say bye to cute Kayda and fat mommy(with hands on my belly).
Jaden: Bye Kayda (and mumbles something like "you're not fat")
Kayda: I fat?
Kayda (pointing to my belly): Mommy fat?
Me: Yes
Kayda (pointing to her belly): Kayda fat?
Me: No.
Jaden: Your chubby belly is cute Kayda.
Kayda(pointing to her belly again): I fat?
Me(rolling my eyes): Sure Kayda
Kayda: OOh laa laa.

-Is that a good response? Have I damaged my child for years to come?

The other day we went to visit a co-workers of Jaden because she has all sorts of animals. She raises the miniature ponies,goats, chickens, turkeys,dogs, and has a fish pond and a bird cage (a free pettting zoo!). I tried to take some natural shots of Kayda interacting with the animals but when she saw me pull out the camera she had to pose. GIRL!!

Horses Parade

This weekend the rodeo is in town, so this morning we headed to the rodeo parade. It was the best parade to take Kayda to. It was mostly horses and dogs, basically keeping her happy the whole time. She waved to EVERYONE. Lucky for her (not me) we were sitting where there weren't very many kids so she made out like a bandit on the candy department. (and for John's sake -they were getting good!)

One Step Forward

Before graduation we wanted to have another functioning bathroom ( besides ours in the master bedroom) So we hustled and finally finished a couple days before graduation. One more project marked off the list (too many more to go!)

Oh Happy Day

We made it! I am so proud of Jaden for his persistence and hard work. I feel fortunate to have a husband that is dedicated to his family even with all the rigors of going to school and working. I know we are not done but it was a definate big step in our lives. Congratulations Jaden!!

Had a Bad Day.

So on Monday we were fervently trying to get our house presentable for company and friends that would be coming for Jaden's graduation. Well Kayda decided to play on a chair on the porch and fell and pushed in her two front teeth. My pregnancy hormones kicked in and I cried all day (and next). We took her to the dentist and he said if they get infected they will have to pull them out *so pray for Kayda*.Anyway this is mostly to explain why she will look beat up in Jaden's graduation photos.

Several people have asked when the special day is (well the estimated date)so August 10th.

So I was looking for a maternity swimsuit and got a little distracted when I saw these shirts:

This one for me should be "I'm fat AND pregnant".

This one I could wear anytime.

Definately what I will feel like in one or two months.

This one I just thought was cute.

P.S. If any of you know where to find a Long, One piece swimsuit that doesn't cost a fortune let me know.
