Spring Boutiques are on the way! / My son learns to Roller Skate - guess who falls!

Well, I am still plugging away at my new venture - Cute and Comfy Cushionknee.  I am thinking of adding a few other items soon... Stay Tuned!  I have a couple of boutiques coming up here in California.  One in Thousand Oaks - Calgary Church/MOPS and Crafty Lady in Chatsworth.   Wish me luck!  :)

So it was family day today and we decided to take our 7 year old son roller skating for the first time.  My husband and I kept saying we just don't want to fall, we just don't want to get hurt.  Please let us just teach our son to skate and go home with no aches and pains.  Of course that wasn't the case.  15 minutes into skating, my son is in the middle of us and we are gliding slowly and doing fine until 4 teenagers collided and who gets hit!  Yes ME, flat on my butt and the pain went straight to my head!  OUCH let me just tell you.  I am not young anymore so I was trying so hard not to fall the entire day!  Now it hurts to walk.  We still skated the rest of the day and even though I was in a little pain.  My son wasn't happy in the beginning and yes crying did take place- (not easy for parents to teach children ... I guess that's why there are private lesson/group lessons LOL )  But then an hour later, he was gliding 4-6 inches and so proud of himself.  Well, at least he said he wanted to try it again.  Mission accomplished  :)  except for my butt :(  

Thanks again for reading.

My Mom had Shoulder Surgery, Husband and Son are Awesome

Hi Everyone,  (or no one.. I am not even sure if I am doing this right) 

Well it's been a crazy week.  My mom had shoulder surgery and thanks to my husband, he's been a big help.  I have been living at my moms house since last Thursday.  My son is the best.  He's been writing her cute feel better messages and I miss you mommy notes.  He slept over 'grandma's' house on Saturday and was the happiest child ever.  He kept saying all night how he couldn't believe he was having a grandma and mommy sleep over.  He was so helpful and such a good boy!  I love you JCB.  Well business is okay, still reading blogs and figuring out how to have others read mine.  I am reading about blog hops so maybe if I do them, you will read this.  :) 

Cute and Comfy Cushionknee is still a work in progress.  My son helped me with inventory this week.  He enjoyed counting all my fabric covers.  He put them in order as to his favorite and of course what could have taken me 15 minutes took 60 minutes, but that's okay, it was time together and that's what counts :) 

For those that read my blog, my son the dinosauraholic.... Loves this game too!!!! 

Well, time for another Top 5.
