It was bound to happen...

Last night as I was getting Sami to sleep, Shaun comes in the room with a funny look on his face and says, "Before you kill her, remember every child has done it at some point..."  He had my full attention.  Then... he pulls a wad of hair from behind his back... ASHLYN'S HAIR!!!
I pass Sami off to him and run to the back of the house to see the damage for myself.  Naturally, she's hiding in my bed under the covers.  I look at her and decide it's not as bad as it could have been.  I talk to her about how bad it is to cut her own hair, how she's lost her "school scissors" privilege and how I'm very sad she did it.  She does not seem remotely concerned.  When I asked her why she cut it, she told me it was because she wanted "crazy hair".  Yesterday was "crazy hair" day at VBS... She wouldn't let me put it in a weird ponytail or put any temporary color in it, but it was OK for her to CUT IT!!
Like I said, it could have been a lot worse.

Now What?

Hi there. You may be asking yourself what you're doing here.  Don't feel bad, I'm asking myself the same question. The only answer I came up with is that my cousin suggested I create a blog online.  I'm not sure who would want to read anything I have to say, but I read blogs, so who knows? So... Here I am.  I created my "spot" and now I'm not sure what to say. I guess I could start by introducing myself and my family.

I'm Summer.  I could spend loads of time telling you who I think I am, but I'll just stick to the basics.  I'm a happily married proud Mommy of two beautiful girls.  I'm also a self-proclaimed "Disney-atic".  We'll get into that a little later.

I married my husband, Shaun in 2003.  
At the time I'm writing this, we've been married almost 8 years!   He's originally from Chattanooga, TN but we met in Montgomery after he graduated from Huntingdon College. After spending our first 3 years of marriage in Augusta, GA we now live in Montgomery.

My oldest daughter, Ashlyn has been the light of my life for the past 4 1/2 years! She is a beautiful little girl with a sweet heart and a developing-sassy mouth...

My youngest daughter, Samantha Jane is the newest addition to our family.  She was born this March and has settled into our crazy family just fine. 

I will try to write about the highlights and low lights of raising 2 sweet little girls and 1 very grown man. 
I'm not sure what to say here, I hope you enjoy?

Til' Next Time,
