The first day

Today, I took the kids to their first day of school. Miah and Devyn were first. Usually when I take them to their classes they give me a hug and kiss and the whole routine before I leave feeling complete.


We got to Miah's class first and she walks in and finds a chair. I call to her, "Bye, Miah see you later."

She just waved me off.


Mildly hurt, I left and went to take Devyn to his class.

We found it and Devyn instantly went in and found a seat at the back of the class.

I had to sign a few papers so when I was done I was at the door waiting for Devyn to run up and hug and kiss me before I left.

I called out, "Bye, Devyn, love you."


Did they get together and plot this or something?

Nobody needs their mother anymore? What tha hell?

Dom I expected this from. It's exactly what I got.

After school, I picked up the kids and took them to Dairy Queen.

Devyn loves to blurt out random thoughts to us and it always catches us off guard. I will start posting them as they happen cause they are hilarious.

Here's the most recent one.

Devyn: "We only have 4 minutes to live....when someone's choking us."

We all just looked at each other and cracked up. Then we realized where he got his info from.

The kids had a good day at school, I went to work and finally got to bring a PDA home to practice with and......all is right with the world.

On another note............

Cyn called me today wondering if I had any clippers.
Our grandmother has cancer and has been undergoing chemo treatments so now she is losing her hair. She got a wig from The American Cancer Society and they suggested that she cut off the remaining patches of hair before she wore the wig.

I did have some clippers but when Dom brought them to me they were rusted so they were no good.
I packed up the kids and we went to her house. I took Cyn and Dom with me to Walmart to buy a new pair and when we got back I cut off the rest of her hair.

She looks good. I believe she is feeling good. She said that her white blood count is up and they reduced her meds so her hopes are up.

I'm glad that I'm back home.

I'm glad she has such a good support system with all of her family. She is not alone and I would hate for her to feel like she is.

She's an excellent grandma. Always trying to feed us all. Always moving around the kitchen and making everything hospitable for everyone.

I hope she knows how much we all love her.

I gathered up the kids after we were done and came home.

My heart is heavy and I am trying to hold back the tears because the kids are still awake.

I love her. She's the only grandmother that I have that I have been close to.

She's been my grandmother for 10 yrs (ever since I got together with Angel) and she will always be my grandmother.

I hate how I know *exactly* how you feel about this. I fight tears every single time I think about it. We'll be strong together, everything will be fine.

Yeah. We WILL be strong and Everything WILL be fine.

*Hugs* back.

Drama Mama:
I remember my Aunt in North Carolina had breast cancer and passed away but I wasn't really that close to her. I live right down the street from my grandmother and we are much closer than any of the other relatives that I had/have.

Veggie mom:
Yes, I was just looking at all of my kids and some of their pictures of when they were younger and noticed how independant they really are.

My little ones are still all hug and I am happy the oldest one still has some left in him. My oldest, Devon, still trying to get me to pick him up and hug him. He is heavier than the other but I still make it a point to pick him up whenever he asks. The momments are getting rarer and rarer (is that even a real word?)
Hope things are going better for gradmther.
