Makes you think

On the news last night was a story of a lady whose 16 month old son drowned in a tub, arrived dead at the hospital and then by the Tender Mercies of our Heavenly Father was allowed to come back to life. I was sobbing reading this story. Her two youngest boys are pretty close to Parker and Nixon's age and I couldn't help but put myself in her shoes. They were in the tub together when it happened. As a mom we can all relate to being distracted at some points, this story will make you slow down and hold your babies tighter.

Kitchen Helpers

Nixon has discovered sinks. He loves the bathroom and kitchen sinks as if it were a new toy. He tries to spend hours with the running water and sneaks back to the bathroom whenever someone leaves the door open. Does anyone remember the commercials of the little kid brushing his teeth and a fish is swimming in a pond outside. As the kids leaves the water running the fish's water goes lower. So the fish has a talk with the boy and he turns the water off while he brushes his teeth. I think I might need to hire a talking fish!!
