In the last week it seems he has grown by leaps and bounds. Last week he came home and called me into the bathroom. When I went in the bathroom to see what he needed he told me, "look mommy, I can now stand and go peepee!" I praised him for his new skill and quietly died a little inside. That same day he decided he did not need the step stool at the sink to wash his hands and he could complete this task "All By Himself." WHAT?? You don't want me there to help and make sure they really get clean? Then a few days later he was in the bathroom washing his hands and then yelled from the bathroom, "Mom, I'm gonna brush my teeth!" which I replied, "Ok, I'm on my way to come help." to which he replied, "No, I can do this myself!" Ok, now I am freaking out a little bit. Just last week I was doing all these tasks for him and now he does not need me there to help. I guess I have taught him well and he can do these things by himself but I don't think I was prepared for him to grow up all in one week.
Next week we have his graduation from Pre-School and that is another big step for him that I have known was coming but am still not quite ready to face. I still miss my little man that was always so happy to see me come in his room in the morning. Now he comes out of his room and begins demanding food and cartoons from me first thing. This is the month I guess I have to say good-bye to my little baby and say hello to my big boy.

Last week was not only horrible for my weight loss. It was a very stressful and busy week at work. I happen to be a stress eater so last week was very hard for me. My biggest problem is that I did not take the time to track everything I put in my mouth. I think if I would have tracked everything early in the week, I may have been so horrified by Friday that I would have had to fast that day. So far this week I am back on track. I am eating the right foods and tracking all that crosses my lips. I hope everyone has a happy and healthy week!

I recently went to a memorial service for a friend’s mother. I have known this friend and his mother since High School and she was a lot like a second mom during that time. While I was at the memorial service I found out that her and her husband has met in Middle School and had been together ever since. This seems to be an amazing feat to me in this day and age. I am sure they had good times as well as hard times in their marriage. They had two children, which can’t always be easy on the marriage. I was in awe of the devotion these two people obviously have to each other. Every person who got up to speak about her mentioned how much she loved her husband and how much they were still in love now, after all these years.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband very much and I am completely devoted to him and our marriage. There have been days, not a lot, that I thought, “there is no way we will make it to 10 years.” Learning about my friend’s parents has proved to me that love can conquer all. Marriage is not easy and any married person will agree with that fact. I have to work on my marriage every day. I see now that all this work is worth it. It is wonderful to have a partner in life and I intend to have my husband as my partner in life for the rest of my life. I hope everyone reading this has found the love of your life, if you have, be sure to work hard at keeping it and if you haven't have faith that you will find your love. Love conquers all!

Thank goodness for a new week & a new month. April was very difficult and I am glad it is in the past!! I am so happy to still be almost 11 pounds lighter. The great news is that I was switching out my wardrobe from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer and almost all of my Spring/Summer shorts and Capri pants fit me. The few that don’t fit me, I can put them on and almost button them. That is a huge accomplishment for me!! My goal for this week is to lose 2 pounds so I can get my 5% sticker, again I love that I am motivated the same way my 5 year-old is!!
Have a Happy and Healthy week!!!!!
