Classic - Sent to me from my husband!! At least he's thinking ahead!!

The room was full of pregnant women with their partners. The class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe and was telling the men how to give the necessary assurance to their partners at this stage of the pregnancy.

She said “Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just take several stops and stay on a soft surface like grass or a path.”

She looked at the men in the room, "Gentlemen, remember, you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her.”

The room suddenly got very quiet as the men absorbed this information.

Then a man at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

“Yes?”, answered the Instructor.

“I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?”

This kind of sensitivity just can't be taught.

My finished wall

Well here is my painted wall. We have lived here for almost 2 years and our front room bugs me. It's so boring. So I finally decided to paint. After talking to two friends that know way more about interior design than I do, and consulting a huge thick paint book, I trusted my friend and we picked out a color.

Well this is the final product. The color of course changes all during the day depending on the light, but at least you get some idea of what it looks like. I love it and it adds tons of character to the room.

Don't you love how little kids smile?!

Trip to the Fire Station

Adriann's class had a field trip the other day to the Fire Station and I got to go since it was a walking trip so I could bring Kamden in the stroller!! Yeah, we walked from the school all the way down to the station with 50 kids!! But we ended up having a really fun time. Here are a few pics.

Here's the group I walked around with.
