Sunday at church we invited a really neat family over for a dinner cookout. Cutie Pie and Sweet Pea both knew Mr. D and Miss C and their little girl were coming over and they were very excited to play with her, and them!

Shortly before they were to arrive, the kiddos were playing nicely outside and every once in a while would ask "When are they arriving, Mommy?" and I would tell them soon. At one point I heard Hubby say "Hello" through the open window and said "They must be here! Let's go invite them out to play!"

We all came inside only to find out he was talking to them on the phone and their little girl had woken up from her nap with a high fever and they weren't coming. Cutie Pie was devastated! Immediately the tears flowed, followed by obvious not wanting to believe the news. It was like the world was coming to an end - and his immediate world was not going to recover quickly from the disaster.

To calm the tears I asked what we should do to feel better and Cutie Pie said "make her feel better". I asked how we could do that and he decided we should make her a card and draw a picture to send with their dinner to make her all better! Soon the tears abated and the crayons came out. Hubby and Cutie Pie made a card and drew a picture and delivered it with dinner. Crisis averted.

Cutie Pie will be disappointed many many times in his near future, I'm sure. Hopefully we'll be able to work through the disappointments positively like we did today. I'm sure the next is waiting around the corner...

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
