What a day!

I know many of you are not on FACEBOOK yet. So, some of you don't know that I heard from Tony this week!!! He called us yesterday and I am happy to report he is doing well. Our phone conversations have been very short and sweet. I have been getting a few emails from him. He has told me they are keeping him extremely busy! Thank You for all the prayers and love you are sending his way.

Yesterday, I took Madison to get her pictures made for Easter. And then a stop off at the Mall to get a Easter Bunny picture. I was quite shocked she sat in her lap (yep the Easter Bunny was a girl); because recently she has been very frightened of characters. But, we got through it and I managed to work with her to get a decent smile. At the first photo shoot, there was a little girl around 3 pitching the biggest fit I have ever seen in all my life. I mean it was the whole nine yards....Supernanny please help! The problem is Madison was staring in wide eyed amazement and I could see her taking notes...I mean it was like...okay, kick mom~check, scream in mom's face~check, hit mom~check, everything but biting occurred. I pulled Madi away and tried to divert her attention. . .. but my future flashed before my eyes and I knew it was not going to be good! After we left I talked to Madi about the little girls temper tantrum and we both agreed that she was very naughty to her mom. And then I woke up!

Today we went to gymnastics and I never even saw it coming! I wasn't prepared for Madi to flex her assertiveness today and try the new techniques she took note of. . . .It was terrible, she was terrible and I was terrible! All day long this baby has done nothing but scream, cry and test test test......CALGON Take me away, SERENITY NOW, and GOD GRANT ME THE STRENGTH!!!
Here is hoping that tomorrow really will bring a NEW DAY.

Enjoy the pictures,
Erin D and Madi
