Hi world! Yes we are still here!!!! I have a love of people and anyone that knows me well knows that ~ BUT, we've run across some real doozies this past week and thought it was funny enough to share!

John and I eat out a lot. Having little toot in our home has not changed that. She is a champ both at home and out in public! She eats good, sleeps good and wakes up happy both in the morning and from naps...she fits our family perfectly!!! So we go out to eat at Cr*cker B*rrel last week. A cute young lady asks how many in our party - nothing strange there. I say 2 and a half. She looks at little toot and with a straight face asks if we'll need an extra set of silverware for her? I gave her the blank stare and was thinking she's 3 months old so you're kidding me right? OK so then the waitress comes over. We are proud to be foster parents but sometimes we just don't want to talk about it. She continues to tell us how pretty little toot is and asks if we have any Cherokee Indian in our family. So we share our story with her and that part of little toots heritage is Hawaiian. With a straight face she says "did you get her here in the United States?" Oh my golly! Last time I checked those lovely islands are a part of the United States!

My husband used to work in Alaska-He always got the same thing...Hello, Alaska is part of the US people!

Hey, just wanted to let you know I have been praying for you all along. I have been raising my granddaughter for the most part and trying to remember how I juggled everything in my life when I was younger. I am loving every moment of it though. I understand the joy you are feeling.
