Life Happens....

 You know that saying, "while we're busy making plans, life happens".  My daughter Erin, Shylee and I were supposed to leave yesterday on a road trip to Arkansas.  Instead, Erin went to NY for a funeral and I've had Shylee since Saturday.  She was home all of 4 days before she came back to me!!

Remember last week when I had her?  You can read about it here.  This week has been so much better.  The tantrums have been only 2-3 times a day and I even ventured out with her on Tuesday because it was her birthday!  We went shopping for some new outfits and a booster seat for meal times since she doesn't like the high chair.  She will be leaving me tomorrow night which is a good thing because my husband gave me his cold and it's going to get worse before it gets better.

We celebrated Shylee's second birthday on Saturday.  She was the center of attention and loved every minute of it!!! 

If we go to Arkansas, we won't make it in time for the Bon Jovi concert.  I guess I can console myself with memories of the concert my sister and I went to almost 4 years ago!  Oh well.....there will be other concerts and other trips and I had a good time with my sweet pea this week!  Life happens and we refocus and go on.

Have a wonderful Thursday!!!


  1. Well - she should be the center of attention - she's darling! Don't care for temper tantrums myself.
    Good luck with the cold - I just got over mine :)

  2. She's so much better this week because Grandma told her the rules. She's a cutey. I'm sure you enjoyed this week much more.

  3. Sounds like you had a nice week and your grand daughter is so cute. Sorry your going to miss the Bon Jovi concert, but I am sure you will have another opportunity in the future. I hope you feel better sooon.
