Thursday...

Becca (my daughter of another mother) brought Malorie (her niece that she and her mom are raising)
came to play and visit Bradley and I .
 Becca has gone to school with Martha Jean since elementary school and they have been best buddies ...
Malorie is 9 months old... she is a baby doll... its hard to believe that this little jewel had a stroke when she was born and had a hole in her heart and some other health issues...
 Bradley is not the best at sharing toys... he is so sweet about taking them however... cause he gives kisses and a pat on the head then snatches and runs....
 Mal loved the worm... she giggled and laughed
 then Becca got on and we laughed... and laughed some more...
 Bradley laughed too... because we were laughing .... and we all know he can not be left out of the laugh fest.
 then he had to have a turn on the worm... Mal was trying to figure out how he gets around so fast... she does not know it but shes a very fast crawler and soon will take off walking too...
 Bradley was a bit jealous for a second when mommy picked Mal up... so he climbed up and gave Mal a kiss... my darn camera is too slow to catch him often.  He is really missing Halo he searches for her several times a day... it makes me cry....GAH.
 Cory... cheesed for me...
 Cory was pulling faces and blowing to make Malorie laugh... she was not positive about this BIG wild child in the floor rolling around playing with Bradley... they get a bit rough...and LOUD!
 then Bradley got some piggy rides ... he says MOE MOE MOE MOE... of course meaning more more more LOL
it is interesting ... that my kids friends still come to see us... and spend the day playing ... and make plans to come back soon....yet we are the worst parents on the planet... according to... OK I stop.... GAH

Speaking of... The school counselor called em this morning said Martha was at school taking a make up test (the last day of school was Thursday) and at 1 pm was graduation practice... we did not know until 1:19 that Martha had passed the test and would be graduating... the counselor called me crying... Martha has no clue how much effort has been put in to her graduating by others...but hopefully SOMEDAY...

I am of mixed emotions... it is very bittersweet... I have been doing everything I could to help her to reach this goal... only to be shut out in the last week...and even when trying to tell her how glad I am and congratulate her I ended up with 7 texts all about how she won't get this that and the other like her cousins and brother... she has no clue the work and time that went into planning their graduation parties...and no clue how wrong she is on some other things she threw up at me trying to make me feel badly... it did not work it just made me sad to see how immature she still is... BUT, I am so glad, grateful, happy, proud that she is getting that piece of paper that means so much in the world ... even though it is getting harder and harder to get a job even with it... it is the one chance and hope that one day when she needs it it is there!!!!

anyway pray all goes well at the graduation as Schlena and Becca and Mal and Iare going... and we don't want any drama with the sperm donor... it would be so shameful....
Happy weekend to you all...God Bless.

Congrats to the graduate. Yes, it WILL mean something. I hope she sets and meets other goals. May we ALL set and keep goals (I say this with a tummy full of a chocolate truffle bar...sigh).

YAY for MJ!!! it is a great accomplishment, especially after all she has been through. I hope she is proud, if the sperm donor will allow her to be proud....

Mal and Bradley are so adorable together, I love how Cory gets right down and plays with Bradley, he is a really really good daddy....
