Back to Work & GIVEAWAY!

 Okay, so I went back to work today. It was STRESSFUL to leave my little Ethan. We still haven't gotten into daycare, so Vince and I will have to be on the hunt this weekend most likely. My sweet neighbor, Amber, is going to watch him for us in the mean time. She doesn't know what a lifesaver she is!  I really do have trust issues I must say. I guess most new moms are. I just wanna wrap him up in bubble wrap and stick him back under my shirt. Then I might be able to relax a little bit. Anyway, about the GIVEAWAY... just to remind you one last time, I will randomly pick a winner who commented from each blog post from Sept 22nd through today. I will also pick one of my Google Readers for an extra bonus prize. If your name gets picked more than once for a prize that's okay too! I have lots of goodies to go around. Let me know what your favorite part about my blog is, what brought you here in the first place, and what would keep you coming back. I love to hear from you. It makes blogging so much more fun! Oh, and here's a card...

(Look for this card in the March 2011 issue of CARDS magazine!)

SO glad that your friend is going to be able to help you out temporarily while you wait for the CDC (that's what we call it in the AF) finds a spot for him!!

Your card is fantastic! Love the colors, the stitching, the LO!!!

Seriously, I am the same way with my kids! Hence being a stay at home mom. Madalyn was born 8 weeks early and spent 3 weeks in the hospital. It was so hard leaving her there every day and night so I have them with me all the time. But that is just as stressful, hope you figure something out that works good for you and your family.

So love the card! I call my hubby HOT STUFF, so that could be a great card for him

Well....I came to your blog because you were in Afganistan around the same time my son was. I enjoyed the pictures you took of the base because even though he wasn't at your base, it still made me feel like I knew where he was. Sounds goofy I know but that year of my life was hard. He couldn't share pictures of where he was due to security (he was at one of those way out there out posts) I stay and follow you because it now seems like I know you but not in a 'stalker' type way ;o)
I feel your pain on childcare. When I had the sons, I had family members who were willing to watch them up. But then they started new jobs, went back to school and I was left not knowing who to call. I ended up with a parent of a student and was totally happy with them. I hope you can find someone soon who makes it to where you're not worried while you are at work.

What brought me here were some really cute cards I saw that you made somewhere and I have been a fan ever since. Plus we share that Screamin' Eagle connection too.. and yes we all wanna wrap them in a bubble lol.. Hang in there you'll acclimate. Ask around your unit too if you know people you know are good parents to see if any of them use a home provider and maybe you can find someone you can trust that way also if the CDC is booked. Prayers up that you find a surrogate aunt to take care of him during the day.

Awesome card. Started visiting your blog about a year ago or more, via Liz. I love your cards, the family, loved hearing about the trips to the market when you were over there fighting our war. Now I love hearing about Ethan!!!!

it must be very hard for you to leave your son so soon, you're a brave mom! :)

I came to your blog the first time because you commented on mine, way back then. I come back for the cute cards and for the stories you share :)
