Walking to School

As I walked Brooklyn to school today, she informed me, “Mom, Ashley doesn’t talk much at school.”

“Oh yeah?”

“Yep. She’s quiet.”

“Well, some people are quiet. That’s okay,” I explained. “And then, other people are chatterboxes,” I continued.

I looked at Brooklyn and asked, “So what do you think you are – quiet or a chatterbox?”

She glanced up at me with a decidedly guilty look on her face. “I’m a chatterbox,” she admitted under her breath.

I threw my head back and laughed uproariously. Let me explain. This is how the rest of our walk went. . .

As a very young kid, quite frequently the best parts of my day were the times when I just got to spend a few minutes telling my dad everything about my day.

Oh, who am I kidding? It's still one of the better parts of my day, and I'm nearly 28!

Brooklyn's chatter is adorable and it sounds like a great walk to school. :D

I saw on your tweets that you were asking about ABF U-pack and I wanted to respond. We used it on our move from CA to MO and we loved it. I didn't want to have to drive my van with my two kids while my husband drove an unreliable moving truck across the country. I'd say ABF is the way to go - especially with gas prices so high you are probably paying about the same! We had to store our stuff for a month while we visited family and waited for our apartment to be ready and when were ready for it they delivered it right away. I think they are great company and it is nice to have someone else take care of the transporting!

FYI: Went I went to Amazon to look at your book _You'll loose the Baby Weight..._ It had it teamed with your first book and a book called, _The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--A Love Story_ . I thought you would think that was funny. I did.

When I started reading your blog today, my first thought was a song called "Alyssa Lies". I was happy to read on and realize I was wrong.

I've been feeling overwhelmed with my life lately. I'm taking several medications every day just to feel normal. Even so, I still have panic attacks about 3 times a week.
My wonderful brother found this web site and showed it to me. I listen to this song whenever I'm starting to feel a panic attack something, or whenever I think I just need a couple of minutes to calm down.
I thought I'd share it with you. Hope it helps. :)
