I absolutely love being a mom.. but as every mom knows.. there are some days you think you might go crazy because nothing will make her happy! On those days McKinley is known to me as McFussy. The other day we were having one of those days.. so we went on THREE walks because I did not know what else to do! She loves to lay on the floor naked so sometimes that works too. Does anyone else have any other good tips!?!?

On a different note.. I am committing to running a half-marathon. CRAZY! It is something that I have always wanted to do but it just has not ever been the right time, and now it is, I think :/ I don't really consider myself to be all that athletic. I mean I like to work out and stuff.. but 13 miles!! Call me crazy.. but I am GONNA do it.. You should too!! Keep me accountable. I did run two miles today...... but felt really lightheaded.. no really.. I was praying I would not pass out on the side of the road and leave McKinley to go rolling down a hill! But we survived... barely.

I have always wanted to see an alligator while driving across the reservoir... like since I can remember... and I FINALLY did!! It was in the water and it was huge!!! I will never ever get in the water again.. not even dip my feet in because it definitely could have eaten me.

Fact of the day: 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.
My sister Grace was one of those... maybe.

i will get better at this whole blogging thing.......hopefully...
