Proud Momma moment

Jonah has been staying at a new babysitter this month. He is having an awesome time and really enjoying himself.

A couple of years ago, Jonah took a tumble in Lake Ontario off a jetski (yes, he had a life jacket on) and after that, fear of water kicked in. We tried taking him to pools and he would freak out. I do not DO freaking out in pools. I hate it. Last year, we finally got him in Uncle Marks pool with a life jacket. He was having so much fun, that he ventured to water wings only. No way was he removing the water wings! Thru the winter, he went a few times but looking back we should have gone more.

So back to new babysitter, Michelle. Michelle has a pool. I thought, PERFECT, he can get back to using his water wings to get his confidence back in the water.

Well - here we are 3 weeks later and look at my little man.....NO WATER WINGS!!!

I am so proud! And in typical Jonah fashion.....he had to splash the camera.

My Colour of Crayon

Ok Cyn, I'll play too.....got this from Cyndi's blog, who got it from Lee's and so on.....Let's see if my colour defines me! What is my crayon colour?

You Are a Red Crayon
Your world is colored with bright, vivid, wild colors.
You have a deep, complex personality - and you are always expressing something about yourself.
Bold and dominant, you are a natural leader. You have an energy that is intense... and sometimes overwhelming.
Your reaction to everything tends to be strong. You are the master of love-hate relationships.

Your color wheel opposite is green. Green people are way too mellow to understand what drives your energy.

What do you think?? LOL

So...what is YOUR colour??

I have eyebrows!!!

Yes, I have eyebrows and I am very excited! There are very few people who can understand my excitement with this statement. My girlfriend Sheri who was the one who got me into waxing my eyebrows in the first place and my cousin Sarah who also faces the same eyebrow dilema, being a fellow red head.
You see, it may seem irrellevant to some, but having light eyebrows...well....sucks large. What makes it worse for me is that my bangs are slighted to the side, which means that 1 eyebrow is slightly covered. The brow that is not covered gets more sun - you see where I am going with this? If you pulled back my bangs, it would actually look like I only have ONE EYEBROW! I hate it! Can't stand it!
I thought about tattooing my eyebrows permanently but was afraid that it would be the wrong colour and I wouldn't be able to fix it. Even though I have 4 other tattoos, this made me nervous.
So, instead I got them tinted. And I love it! I have had it for 2 days and people have already made comments. It will only last about a month, but thats ok. Considering it cost me only $8, it is something I will definately do monthly.
YAY for my eyebrows!!
