Halloween Brought Me To Tears

I don't know about your kiddos, but my Carsyn normally changes her mind about what she wants to be for Halloween about 47 dozen times. Not this year. She's only wanted to be one thing and one thing only... a Princess Bride. (Think Rapunzel at the end of Tangled, ha!) So, that's what we got her. After a few alterations to her veil, longer and sparkly, she was ready to go.

Today was her school party and while walking up to Settle Memorial, I wanted to take a picture of her on the church steps. Turns out, that was a bad idea...

Mountain Workshops “One Eye Open” [VIDEO]

The Mountain Workshops have done an amazing job documenting so many great stories about our Owensboro community. I came across one today and I already knew who it was. Well, I don't personally know this family, but I have followed their story, like so many others have, thru social media.

T-bird is an 11 year-old Owensboro boy, who has been fighting brain cancer since 2009. His battle has been, to be honest, painful to watch. As a mother, when I see the stories of these innocent children, I can't help but think of their parents and how hard it must for them.

"One Eye Open" allows you inside the life of T-Bird's Mom and the daily struggles she faces while caring for her son.

Dad Mocks Daughter’s Tantrum In Video

Ok, we've all been there... your child is throwing an absolute fit. Like, snot-slinging, tears flowing, kicking, screaming fit. Why?!? Oh who knows, maybe her favorite cartoon is over, maybe his socks aren't just perfect on those precious little toes, maybe her big brother looked in her direction and she just wasn't having it. But, temper-tantrums are the frustration of most parents. This dad in the video chose to do something that we all have to do from time to time... find humor in a situation that could very easily cause you to lose your mind... He mocked his daughter's tantrum.

Seriously, I hollered I was laughing so hard. You must watch this.
