[Here's the kicker- the thing that is smartsing more than I can put into words right now-my oldest sister thinks I should "get over it"-meaning the death of my son.I can forgive her for not knowing what it's like to lose a child- she has never had children so even relating to a parent- child relationship is out of her realm but, it still hurts.

Seems like your sister is the one who needs to "get over it." Those who've never had children have no concept of what it is like to, first, hold a child under your heart for 9 months and then love him or her for the rest of their/your life. We have 5 children and have had some near-misses (not of their doing) with two of them. Your heart just stops when you are faced with something that threatens their lives.

Ditto to amber's comments about your brother handling things. You have enough on your plate right now. Take care of yourself. Lots of hugs your way!!!

We are going on vacation to the Smokey Mountains. I am excited. We have a cabin up in the montains in the woods, and I even get to bring my dog.

They wouldn't have much of a team, there are only 73 people living in Balltown.

rofl joann, can't pull one over on you, huh?

(btw, the joke goes, "where's sample, iowa? near balltown?"
and i respond "umm, i dunno, but there's a sign that says you're in sample"...)

i know, i'm sorry.

seriously tho, my bil, now serving in iraq, is from hudson city, i-o-way.

Well, the big teen blowout turned out OK on Friday night. Only half of those invited showed up (thanks be to Jesus).

Note to other parents - do NOT provide M&Ms as a party snack. They all ended up being ground into the floor after being thrown at each other.

Cleanup note - those wet Swiffer things really work on ground-in M&Ms.

Drinks note - each child will open approximately four cans of pop and take a sip out of each one before abandoning it forever.

Note on "the scene" - Justin Timberlake's latest offering (Se#yback) does not improve upon repetition.

But at least all the kids - including daughter - said they had a great time. That's enough for us.

Yes, makes you believe that you might've been forgiven for some of your youthful mayhem. Yep, there is a God.

Yes, true. At any age, anything that can be used to throw at one another is worth avoiding. When we moved from one of our houses, we were showered with dried peas from atop our tall dining room hutch. Gee, I wonder how they got there?

Yep. Been there. Done that.

Note on "the scene" - Justin Timberlake's latest offering (Se#yback) does not improve upon repetition.

Now I know the wisdom of my father saying, "Turn it down or turn it off."

But at least all the kids - including daughter - said they had a great time. That's enough for us.
That was the goal, wasn't it. Congratulations! You get the awesome parent award!!

Thanks, Katie. We tried. HH was a formidable presence against a bunch of nonsense, and he didn't even need to wear his camo stuff.

We have told one of the "best friends" that her lucky parents get to host the sweet 16 party next year.
