I love my Chasey...

I love my girl...

A friend of mine recently had a miscarriage...and the only advice I had to give was that I did understand what she was going through...and nothing anyone tells you will make you feel any better...but the ONE thing in my life that makes me feel so much better about that miscarriage and about that baby that I lost.

If I had never lost that baby....I would NOT have my Chasey!! My sweet, loving, curly haired, beautiful little girl!

This morning I was in the shower and Chasey came in and asked me something..I couldn't really hear her so I peeked my head out and asked her again.

Chasey - "Mom, Can you teach me how to read?"

Me - "Of course!!!" (me...also wondering what prompted the question...I bet she saw one of those "your baby can read" commercials! haha)

Chasey - "Ok...when you get out of the shower?"

Me - "Well, it's going to take a little longer than that, but go pack those books that Mary gave you and well take them with us for the week" (we are going to stay at a timeshare with my dad, step-mom and little sister...Just a few miles up the road, but still a mini-vacation! :)

Chasey - "ok" (and totally convinced that she's going to learn how to read this week)

So...I guess we are going to work on learning to read! I have NO idea how to teach a person how to read...?? This whole Mom thing is hard sometimes!

Guess where we were all weekend?
Lots and LOTS of pictures to post...I have to weed through them first.


  1. hey,
    thanks for your comment on my blog. i totally get what you're talking about! sometimes things don't work out the way you always thought they would, and it can be heartbreaking. but i think sometimes things are taken from us so they can be replaced by something much better. :)

  2. I can't WAIT to go to Disneyland with the kids!

    And you're so right about miscarriages. They are tragic and I will never understand why women are forced to experience them...but I like the way you look at the silver lining.

  3. I had 2 miscarriages and you are right. Nothing makes you feel better and people say some horrible things!
    Reading! How fun. I have not a clue either but this is how I TRY...sound out the letters and put it together ;)
    Adorable dress - you are too much! he he he
