Chloe Cupcake, take a bow!

Well folks here she is, the darling little "Chloe Cupcake". I am starting a rabbit for my friend Kim's granddaughter, Audrey. I was Kim's TA all last school year. Audrey is so adorable! She just turned one a few weeks ago. I gave the alligator illustration to the girls pediatrician when I took Sloan to the the Dr. this week. Dr. Kielty has had two children at the same time as me, and I always wanted to make something for her two boys, I thought this would be OK to give her. Dr. Kielty has always been so good to my girls, she has even come to one of the art shows I was in. She is a very caring physician.

This has been a good day, Sloan and I were able to spend a little special time together. She made a coment the other night that I never spend time with her anymore, it made me feel so guilty. It is hard to give everyone equal time. There are so many nights I go to sleep counting all the ways I failed my children, didn't give enough hugs, lost my temper at the end of the day and so on and so forth. Sometimes I wish there was a "How to" book that came with each child. I guess that is where prayer comes in. God knows my little one's and their needs better than I ever will hope to.

Speaking of little one's Aris just woke up so I need to go nurse her and hopefully Dean and I can get a good nights sleep.

Visit with Senator Harry Reid

Hamming it up at the Senator's office.

This is a perfect photo to get me motivated to exercise again. I am so out of shape.

Sloan with Molly Dillon. Molly is so amazing, she is always working so hard to help our kids. Thanks Molly.

On our way

I am heading to pick up Sloan from school in just a few minutes. She, along with a few other kids have the opportunity to meet and visit with Senator Harry Reid. We will be discussing why we think it's so important to continue lobbying Congress to fund different programs that are one step closer to finding a cure for diabetes. Without this important funding it will take that much longer to find a cure for all the millions who suffer from this life long disease. This will be her second time meeting with the senator. I am excited that she has the chance to see how so many different people are working toward goals to find a cure. It's also a good way for me to introduce concepts about government, and how it's important to get involved with your leaders if you want to be heard. She doesn't really fully understand the importance of these visits, but I think one day she will look back and be happy that she did this.

Hilary is watching my little ones, and I am so grateful to her. Thank goodness for dear friends. When I get back I promise, with a capitol P, to post some pictures. Hope everyone is having a lovely day and a fun week.
