Just one of those days...

Today was just one of those days that I want to keep Taylor with me forever and never let her go. I got a call from her school today saying that she fell in the mud and needed to be picked up. The look on her face, when I walked into the nurse's office, seeing her sitting on a chair with what looked like the little mat's that you use inside your house when you are potty training your puppy, made me want to cry. She was dressed in one of her cute little sundresses and when she saw me she had tears in her eyes. She was so sad. I asked her what happened and she said she was running on the grass and slipped...right on her butt in a puddle of mud. I asked her if anyone laughed at her and she said no. I was so relieved. I then asked her if anyone helped her and she said no, that her friends just stood there and looked at her. I wish I was there to pick her up. =( Then she had AWANA tonight and it was crazy hat night. We really don't have that many crazy hats laying around our house and my creative ideas were not so creative. So last minute I found a hat of Danny's that I thought was crazy enough. Apparently, compared to some of the other kid's hat, it wasn't considered crazy and some kids felt the need to let Taylor know. It made her sad, but it sounds like she dealt with it pretty well. Days like this make me want to not let her ever leave my side. But I know that it's days like this that are going to make her a stronger, better person.

It's a good thing we are going to the happiest place on earth tomorrow for Dev's birthday... =)


  1. That breaks my heart! Love you, Tay! She is one of the sweetest kids I know and she will be rewarded for that! And a sidenote: if they have crazy hat day again, please know that I have a number of them to choose from that she is welcome to wear! :)

  2. seriously, breaking my heart. being a mom is hard. i'm sad for you too. but you are right, all of it will make her stronger!

    happy birthday!
