Good morning friends and Happy Thursday! Today is a pretty significant day for me because it marks the last day of daycare for Jillian. Can you believe it? I can't. As happy as I am about starting this next chapter in my life, it is a bittersweet time as Jillian says good bye to the little friends she has made over the past two years. I am so happy that I am friends with a few of her friend's Moms and hope to arrange playdates in the near future. We have certainly had our ups and downs with daycare but in the long run know that she will be happiest at home with me and her brother. Jeff and I have planned to pick up Jillian together tonight on her last day and I know I am going to end up an emotional, teary-eyed mess saying good bye to everyone we have met.
- I have some pretty amazing news to share with you!!!! I received an email today and also heard on Twitter that there is going to be a replacement for Picnik!!! According to the email, a few of Picnik's employees have teamed up and created a new website called Picmonkey.com. I really hope this new website is just as good, if not better, than Picnik! Perhaps this is the answer to all of our prayers? Let's hope it's up and running by April 19th when Picnik is planning on closing it's doors.
- The nursery is SLOWLY coming along! Here is a little sneak peek at the paint color we chose, Tradewinds by Sherwin Williams. His crib has also been put together this week and his dresser is partially assembled. This has certainly been the slowest project ever. I still have not bought his bedding yet either, I just can't bring myself to do it. I am not sure why I keep dragging my feet on this. I love it so much, I just know how little he is actually going to use it which is why I keep going back and forth with it. Am I crazy for thinking this way?
- I am sure by now you have all heard about the horrible tragedy that took place on Monday at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio. Chardon is about 15 minutes from where we live and this whole situation hit very close to home. If you are from this area, I am sure you are shocked that this could affect a cute little town like Chardon. Chardon is known for it's old fashion style town square and is the epicenter of the snow belt in Cleveland. Please pray for the friends and families who have lost loved ones in the Chardon shooting and with those whose lives were changed forever. Events such as this one scare me to death as a parent. Our kids should be safe at school, not terrorized. I don't think a day has gone by this week where I haven't cried watching the news.
Hope you are all having a good week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
