This is an exciting day for you! We bought you your first pair of shoes. Your chubby little feet haven’t taken that first step on your own yet, but you are almost there.

This day is the first of many for you as far as getting shoes is concerned. For me, this will probably be the last time I get a child of my own their first pair of shoes. It is very bittersweet for Mommy. You are my baby, my littlest one. Most likely, you are our last. (I am not saying that we are done, but I don’t see another one in the cards for our family in the near future. We will see what God has in store for us.) My heartstrings were tugged slightly today when I realized I would most likely never have a tiny one’s feet that need to be measured for the first time again.

To read the rest, please go here! Thank you for being such loyal fans! Please share with your friends :).

 




The comma is mightier than the pen

If you have been an avid reader of this blog, you have probably noticed my use of commas. Or, maybe, you haven’t paid any attention to them at all. According to this article from Huffington Post, one man discusses how commas may be a thing of the past in our life time.

Really? I can hear the screams of English teachers and professors around the world! One example the article gave was this statement: “Let’s eat, Grandma”. Now, let’s see how it would sound without the comma: “Let’s eat Grandma”. Well, that doesn’t sound right. The comma is mightier than the pen (corny, I know :) ).

Oxford-Comma

I know my comma placement might not always be 100% accurate. However, I feel that my placement of the comma gives my reader an understanding of content. I think if commas were eliminated it would be extremely hard for me to understand the meaning of the written text. So, to the mighty comma: Keep calm and carry on!

Here is one more corny comma picture:

Hehe! It got a chuckle out me me ;).
