Overwhelmed

My Busy Mom Devotional couldn't have come at a better time.
The Busy Mom's Devotional: Ten Minutes a Week to a Life of Devotion by Lisa T. Bergren. $10.46. 224 pages. Publisher: WaterBrook Press (June 16, 2010). Author: Lisa T. Bergren

It must be that time of the month.
Work is crazy, P has just become mobile, eating real food,
final touches on sister's wedding in full swing.

I have not adjusted to this new lifestyle
with a mobile baby that eats 3 real meals a day.
Being a working mama is NO joke.
Sometime I just need a little reminder at the end of the day that we are very blessed!

It's Starting Again!

I never participate in #TBT
but in honor of the 1st day of College Football 2014
I figure it was a pretty good day to start.

For those of you that don't know
I'm kind of obsessed with college football
and more obsessed with my beloved FSU 
aka 2013 College Football Champs

So here's a few TBT and a recap of last year's season with little P.

Mr.'s first Gameday in Tally
wow we were young.

tailgating at it's finest...

little Johnny then a high school freshman, now a college junior at FSU

Aunt Liz leaving for Gameday against Miami while we are in the hospital.

Parker enjoying the UF game...

And last but not least Parker sending her Mimi, Papa John, and Uncle off to Pasadena...

Cheers to another great College Football Season!

Visit to the ER

Yes it's true
Last Thursday we had our 1st ER visit.
Poor little P had a fall and as the Mr. says...
'It was like a football player' head-bang into the laundry basket.
She thinks she can stand up an walk.
Truth...we aren't there yet.

I wasn't home at the time
thank goodness cause apparently there was a lot of blood.
(I would love to be in the medical field but can't handle blood)

I was surprisingly very calm through the incident
We headed to the Urgent Care
but then she was falling asleep on us.
Scared us silly so we made a U-turn for the ER.
Flashers on and speeding.

End of the day we learned...
- it's okay for her to fall asleep
(apparently not a big deal for a kid who falls on the head to fall asleep?? so the nurse said)
 - children under 2 don't get CT scans unless they hit concrete or another very hard surface
(not a laundry basket)
- after a gross puke in the ER
(note: ran out of the house no diaper bag = very smelling and messy baby and daddy = embarrassed mama)
- they sent us on our way with Tylenol and Neosporin.

Our first 'over reacting' parenting experience.
But I'm okay with that, better safe than sorry.
Parker is such a sport, she makes it hard to tell when she isn't feeling well.
