Why Is It?.....

Why is it that it is so difficult to cut Gavin's hair, and yet, it grows so fast?!

Why is it that Gavin makes me so happy?!

Why is it that the smell of coffee being made is such a wonderful aroma, but it tastes SO BAD?!

Why is it that these guys drive me to insanity, but I can't get enough of them and feel so sad when they aren't around?!

Why is it that even though most everything is running smoothly right now for our family, I can't help but feel like something bad is about to happen?

(I was never like this before Gavin came along. I suppose it's because he has been such a fragile child and difficult times have come along quite frequently since he's been in our lives. I HATE feeling like there is a cloud of doom hanging over me! I'm trying my hardest to not let it affect me emotionally, and thankfully I succeed in not letting it bring me down most of the time!)

Why is it that Gavin's sad face is so cute, and yet, so pitiful at the same time?

Just wondering..........?

Ahhh, the sweet little mysteries of life. Let me know when you figure them out! :)

I think it is natural, when you have a special child, to wonder when the other shoe (or the 3,892 shoe) will drop. We always have to have our guard up, always have to be on the alert for when something goes wrong. Because, unfortunately, it is not if something goes wrong, it is when.

Hugs to you friend

Oh his pucker face is just like Jax's. Its so cute and yet so sad at the same time. I feel the same way, when stuff is going good I wait for the ball to drop. Hopefully we both have a while before that happens.

That is the sweetest saddest face ever! I love it!
I HATE that when things are going so good, we brace ourselves for the worst, its just not fair.
And i agree, they drive me crazy too, but I love them so much!

Ugh! I think that nagging feeling that something bad is going to happen never quite goes away--even in the best of times. Maybe it's because we really KNOW that bad things can and do happen? But then there is always something--like Gavin's adorable face--to make us smile!

Okay, that little pout is TOO cute! Sad and pitiful and adorable! I'll have to drag up a pouting Peanut picture to post on my blog for you. :)

Love it! In the movie 'Parenthood' there was a saying about life being like a rollercoaster....and its scary, and its fun, and its loud,but its a good ride!. Something like that anyway, but it sums it up nicely.

That's a really cute face!

and the pout is adorable...

Oh, coffee, according to my husband, it's an acquired taste, but when I was at summer camp (around age 14?) I thought it smelled wonderful, and tasted even better.
