I Need your Help

Return to Zero

Friends, I am asking a special request. There is a new movie that has been created starring Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein that is based on a true story of a couple having a stillborn child at 37 weeks. This movie, Return to Zero, shows the emotional journey this couple went through after the loss of their baby and later bringing another child into their lives. One of the goals of the movie is to remove the taboo associated with talking about stillborn babies so that parents can feel comfortable talking about the baby they lost.

This movie has already been created, but does not yet have a release date. The producers need to have 150,000 people pledge to see the movie.  If they get that by June 20th, they can prove to Hollywood that there is indeed an audience for the film - and it will get into the theaters. I am not asking you to pledge money, just to pledge to see the film.

All you have to do is follow the link and pledge. You can list me, Kerry Lederman, as your local leader. And please feel free to share this message. Thank you!!

Blowing a Kiss

I drove to my parents house in Vienna today.  I was dropping off my kids while I went to my Doctors appointment. 

On the way to my parents we pass St Marks, where "Andrews special place" is.  As we drove by the Church I heard Katelyn make a kissing sound.  Everytime I drive by I kiss my hand and put it on my heart as I look out behind the chapel.  I realized Katelyn must have picked up on this, because before I kissed my hand, she blew a kiss towards the Church.  I asked her what she was doing and she said "sending Andrew a kiss" with a strong "duh mom, what the heck do you think" tone in her voice.  Of course, what was I thinking?  Over two years later, Katelyn continues suprise me with the ways she shows her love for her first brother.

As for the Doctor, the appt went as planned which is always good news.  We took another test for GBS and the results should be in towards the end of the week.

I'm one of those people who have great plans to finish my Holiday shopping early. But for some reason, every year, I end up rushing out in December, fighting crazy (and I mean crazy!) people at the stores, and wrapping on Christmas Eve. Well, not this year my friends!

So, as I prepare, I thought I'd create a page to share some links to stuff I like, perhaps inspiring you to be prepared early too.

If you have stuff you like, send me a link or post the link in the comments section.

Daycare Changes

I made the official change today with the preschool this afternoon.  Rther than going 4 (sometimes 5) days a week at daycare (paying for 5), we are now signed up part-time, 3 days a week, starting next week.

I feel like this will be a big change for us - my kids will finally get to spend more time at home and I get to be there with them.  I'm also hoping it gives me more time to do housework, my house is a mess and it drives me nuts, and more time to just sit around and play.  More moments like this...

Now I just have to ask one of my sisters if they can watch my kids on Monday, I have my next Dr. appt. and no daycare!
