- Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Strep Throat and Ear Infections
Earlier this week Aleck developed a runny nose and cough. A few days later, Ella also developed a runny nose. I just thought they both had colds, but we are going out of town next week so I took the kids the see Dr. Karimi. Turns out Aleck has strep throat and Ella has bilateral ear infections, with the right ear being so bad that Dr. Karimi said her eardrum may rupture. This is Ella's third ear infection in three months so we may be looking at tubes in the future. Neither of them acted like they didn't feel well, with the exception of Ella not sleeping well last night. My poor babies. It breaks my heart when they are sick.
