I took rondeck...my mom and the weekend...

So, I am sick...it is one of those really bad sinus and ears and chest congestion things that is just mean. I felt so bad I even took rondeck! What is rondeck? It is the most horrible prescription liquid medicines ever created...but it works. Rondeck was my nemesis as a child. My mom would have to hold me down on the counter and make me take it and then I would always chase it with crackers. When my doctor prescribed it yesterday I got a sick feeling in my stomach and reassured myself that I don't have to get it filled and I certainly don't have to take it! But...worse came to worse and I chased the horrible tasting grape rondeck with some of Jada's animal crackers in hopes to defer my taste buds.

Today my mom took Jada for the day while I sit in bed and hopefully get better. So...I wanted to take this opportunity to say to the world that my mom rocks!!!! Even though she held me down on the counter and gave me rondeck as a child and left me deeply scarred from the experience ;) she is SO GREAT! She gladly helps and loves me so wonderfully. I really don't know what I would do without her. She is such a giver...anyone that has met her can easily see that and experience that for themselves. I am often told by many of my friends how spoiled I am to have the mom that I do...and to that I say "I know...and I am SOOOO thankful!" So, thank you, Mom!

And finally I wanted to add a few pictures from our weekend. Our sweet friends, the Hollands, came in town and spent some time with us. We were so grateful for the time that we shared with them and all of our children played together so peacefully! Jada really loves Faith, Jacob and Baby Carissa...as you can see from the photos...she was giddy with them! And yes, she is wearing a bumble bee headband.


  1. You mom is not only a great mom but also an amzing show partner! Our costumes and dances would not be complete without her!!! :)

  2. It is so easy to love my blessings! I love being Jada's MiMI and Steph's Mom....and of course Michelle's dance partner!!
