Other than gymnastics, my boys haven't been involved in any organized sports. So when I signed Tyler up for T-Ball - I didn't really know what to expect. Would he be too scared to participate?

If you've read any of my blogs, you know how frustrating birthday celebrations and holidays have been for me because of my parent's divorce. Unfortunately, it's been like that all of my life.

I am writing this on the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I just couldn't let it go by without saying something about the disease.

Keep up the faith and the fight!

Apparently the little guy didn't like that much because - he reached back and whacked Jordan right in the head. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Did that little boy just hit my son?
