The Wig-free Me


From the beginning of my treatment, Felicia had been the most upset about my hair loss.  She cried when Mike shaved my head and was always quick to remind me to put my wig on when I was leaving the house. It had come to the point where I was very rarely wearing anything on my head, but she still didn’t want me to pick her up at school without my wig. She was worried that someone would be mean to me.  Well, this past Friday I decided that I was just going to throw my hat on when I went to the school. I was worried that she would be upset, but to my surprise, she was FINE! Sunday morning we were about to leave for church and it was kind of chilly so I put my wig on. She looked at me and said, “Eww!” I guess that was the final farewell to the wig!

SUYL-Moms of Big Families

{Today I'm linking up the Kelly's Korner:SUYL Moms of Big Families.}

Way back when my hubby, Mike, and I were just dating, we often talked about how many kids we wanted. I always said I wanted six, then I had my three boys, Michael(almost 19), Brandon(17), and Aaron(15). Boys are fun, but they have a lot of energy and I needed to take a break before even thinking about adding to our family......Seven years later, we had Felicia (now almost 8) and I finally had my girl! Less than two years later we had another girl, Madelyn (6), and in 2010, our third, and final girl, Stella(21 months). A grand total of 6, just like I had always wanted!

We’ve also used the same technique to dye real eggs. You can check that out here.

Muffin Tin Monday

Things are finally getting back to normal around the Adams’ house. We are settling back into a routine, enjoying some beautiful Spring weather, and aside from a few sniffles, I’m feeling well. So, I thought that there is no better time to get back on board with our Muffin Tin Monday meals. Here’s what Stella had today:
Top row: ham, green beans, macaroni and cheese
Bottom row: Goldfish crackers, yogurt, cantaloupe
As always, even the most ordinary lunch is a hit in a Muffin Tin!
