Money Week Continues! Go Landon! And Yes I am a TIGGER!


Landon is learning first hand from me, about compound interest.
Here we are opening an account for him with some of his birthday money. Check out the bank employee. It's not your money! LOL!
Even my cute bloggy friends are getting involved! Bringing their kids to the bank and everything! Displaced Southern Preps Posts about her daughter wanting to go to Florida are the funniest things ever!!!


Yesterday I took Landon to his pre-op surgery visit.

He is going to have another surgery on his arm. Possibly two this month. He has been through a lot but he is such a sweetheart. He sailed through his appointments.

I just think, like Randy Pauch (who I cannot stop thinking about), I am a Tigger. I am happy. Landon is too. We aren't going to let this get us down!






Are you a Tigger? or An Eyeore.



I am not going to be sad about our surgery coming this Wednesday. I am living in hopeful expectation that this will only make his arm and ultimately his life, better.

Oh my, Landon is absolutely adorable…I LOVE the pictures from the bank! Landon is such an amazing little boy with an incredible spirit. It breaks my heart for what he has to endure and undergo to correct his tiny arm. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you and the Mr. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm a Tigger also- thanks for reminding me that I need to buy that book- great speech.

Now listen, I added you to my blogroll, hope it's ok- if there's a prob pls let me know :)

And good luck with Landon...but I'm lost- why does he have to have surgery for?

What a cutie pie! All my prayers for successful surgeries. Take care of you too, mama!

I too was inspired by Randy and love to watch his last lecture at CMU - on his website if you haven't seen it. We should all live our lives like that...God Bless...

He is precious! I will be thinking about you in the upcoming weeks...those pre-op appointments are enough to drive anyone insane. Yay for you for being a tigger! I was an eyeore about DD's surgery and I should not have been. You are an inspiration!

I'm so glad you are staying positive. It's amazing what doctors can do these days. I'm sure Landon will come through with flying colors. I will pray for him (and your family!)

Yeah for Landon! Money in the bank is always a good thing. Each of my children have their own accounts and extra cash always gets sent that way.

We'll be thinking of Landon and you/your hubby during the upcoming surgeries.
