So I know I’m really terrible right now about blogging. Well, for months now. I have a lot of catching up to do. I’m just really tired.

Benjamin started school full time. He’s gone from 7am-9pm Monday-Thursday and that doesn’t even count his online computer class he has to take and keep good grades on. Being a single mother is hard. That being said, we had some pictures of Lily taken for her 3rd birthday. We also got some other shots in of the girls and a family photo. I’ll try to up load them later. But for now, I have a link to some of her pictures.



Do you ever wonder…

If you could go back in time and give yourself some great advice? I’m not saying that you could change what happened in your life, but give yourself some advice.

Care to share?

I’d like to go back in time to when my daughter Amy Lynne was still alive. Let myself know that she’s only on this earth to receive a body and to take as many pictures of us together. And family pictures. Let Lauren and Kathryn hold her more than just on Christmas.


Hind sight is 20/20.


Lily: Please get me my purse
Erik: Ok, here it is Lily. Do you like your purse?
Lily: Yes, I do. Does your dad have a purse?
Erik: No silly Lily. Boys don’t have purses. They have satchels.
Kathryn: Does your Dad have a satchel?
Erik: Nope!
