6 Years ago I did something amazing....

...... Laid still on a gurney pumped full of drugs, while a doctor did all the work to bring my 2nd child into the world.

HA - those of you who just say no -- it's because you haven't tried them!
Although, given she entered the world via C section, drugs were kind of necessary.   This ain't no Walking Dead episode you know.

I am NOT that Super.




Today's prompt is: Light

I was sitting at a stop light when it dawned on me that this would be a perfect addition to the Pondering With a Purpose double meanings theme..... I mean seriously... Light... what do you think of?



Today's prompt is rather timely and appropriate, since I am thinking of how a new, bright and beautiful light entered my world 6 years ago today.

Angel Girl
Technically, weighing in at 9 pounds and 5 ounces, she was not actually very light at all.
Although clearly....none of her weight came from the top of her head, since she was bald for the first two years of her life.  Very light on top - LOL

Angel Girl....in awe of her older brother Monkey Boy

She's always had that certain light in her eyes, that you just knew meant you were in for some crazy, silly fun:


honestly.....she does own clothes

or NOT



But no matter whether she is spreading joy, or giving us grumps - she always manages to somehow light up a room with her infectious (and too loud) laughter and over-flowing fountain of love.

So today we are lighting 6 candles to celebrate this amazing life that came to us 6 years ago.
