On Wednesday nights Brooklyn has ballet class. On September 20th my husband surprised us with some Astros tickets. He was able to get 4 tickets through work. He was going to take his boss, but they had a change of plans. At the last minute he invited Brooklyn, our niece Ariya, our baby Emileigh, and myself. Emileigh was free to go in since she is a baby.

The Houston Astros played against the Chicago White Sox. This was Brooklyn and Ariya’s first time going to a baseball game. We got to sit in the suite section where we had free food. We had chicken tenders, nachos, hot dogs, hamburgers, jalapeño poppers, cookies and peanuts. The girls had so much fun watching the game and yelling. Since they had school the next day we left at the top of the 8th ending.

Before we left the game we got the girls some foam fingers. While we were walking to the car the girls were yelling pointing their foam fingers in the air.

The Astros ended up beating the White Sox 4-3. Go Astros!!! I am thankful we had a fun and safe time at the game. Ariya said that this was the best day of her life. With her saying that put a smile on my face. I can’t wait to do something like this again.

Fussy Baby

Have you ever had a fussy baby and wished you had something to calm them down? With my second daughter I found something that calms her down. She is more fussy than my first daughter.

Where I Hear Baby Mine?

I always liked the song from the Disney movie Dumbo called Baby Mine. It’s the scene where Dumbo is being rocked my his mom while she is locked up. I searched for the song on iTunes and found a version sang by a group called Celtic Woman. Years ago I saw them perform on TV and I loved the way they sang. I knew I had to buy this song.

When my daughter gets fussy I play her Baby Mine and she calms down immediately. I have played this song for her since she was about 3 months old. She is now 11 months old and it still calms her down especially in the car. I bought the album because it had other calming music for her.


Lullaby by Celtic Woman

1. When You Wish Upon A Star
2. Stay Awake
3. Baby Mine***
4. Goodnight My Angel
5. Over The Rainbow
6. Suantrai
7. Walking In The Air
8. The Blessing
9. Brahm’s Lallabye
10. Hush Little Baby

View from my window on Aug. 29th

Brooklyn’s first day of second grade was suppose to be on August 28th. Well Hurricane Harvey came and changed those plans. On Saturday August 26th we started to get rain from the hurricane. On Sunday August 27th I got a message saying school was close on Monday and Tuesday. So the first day of school was going to be on Wednesday. We continued to get a lot of rain from the hurricane. The school district sent another message stating that school was now starting on September 5th. This message was sent before some of our area started to flood. The flooding has effected yet again the first day of school. As of August 30th our school district might start on September 7th.

If Brooklyn does start on the 7th then she would of had an extra 10 days of summer break. She is ready to start school to learn and see her friends. Being locked up in the house for 4 days was starting to get to her. Hopefully school does started on September 7th and the kids can start learning.

I am one of the lucky ones who didn’t experience flooding in their homes. I want to share with you some of the pictures that some of my family members did go through. They had their land flood and their car go in the water.

My prayers go out to my Houston family. Houston Strong.
