VIP call and I need title help!

Happy Wednesday Blog Pals!

So Sorry I haven't visited your blogs as often as usual. I will catch up soon, and I'm sorry its been so long since I updated this little blog. I have been meaning too, but my new job is really kicking my butt. Completely! It's totally easy, maybe too easy, but I'm so exhausted when I get home in the evenings. I think its because I haven't worked since October 2005 and it really took its toll. I'm getting better this week thought. At least I'm not coming home and crashing on the couch by 7 pm.

With our countries economic crisis, I feel very blessed to have this job. I know its not guaranteed tomorrow, but I'm thankful to have it. Can you believe my 2nd week, I work 49.66 hours. I can't wait to get my 2nd check. I am so excited to make that first deposit in our new saving account. I can't wait.

On Thursday, while I was busy working my phone rings. I dig it out and its Josh. I proceed to say Hey Josh whats up? no response, Hello Josh! Are you there........ Then I hear Josh in the background saying say Hey Mommy. Then I hear a soft spoken but very loud HEY MOMMY. Mommy mommy mommy, lvvve you, miss you mommy. It was the cutest thing ever!! Words that melt your heart. Mommy is absolutely 10,000% the best word ever. This phone call was very special to me, and made my day a little brighter.

Look what I was greeted with on Friday, when I got home from work. Yes, every single toy in the floor. I must say I love the joy of childhood and I'm loving watching Blake discover the world one word, crayon, or powder bottle at a time.

This was my week to come up with the challenge over at scrapbook challenges. I decided with the recession, everyone could benefit from Homemade Embellishments. They are so many possibilities both simple and advanced. The optional twist is the use a scrap pattern paper thats at least a year old also. I created a tree from my scrap drawer and some card board. (The card board came from the little inserts from a set of dishes)

I'm working on a page with pics from Blake's first dentist appointment and I could use your help. I'm stuck on the title. B is not the happiest in the photo, and its a simple LO. Any suggestions for a title. I was thinking simple 1 or 2 word.

Hey Cathy! So glad you are feeling more in sync with your new schedule this week. I LOVE working but it still seems to kick my butt from time to time. That's why I get up so early to workout. If I wait until I get home...ain't happenin'. And I don't have a wonderful little man (or big man for that matter LOL) to take care of when I walk through the door.

Great layout! I'm so impressed you are still finding time to scrap! Good for you! As for the title...I'm on vacation and my brain is in the "OFF" position. I love the "This Is Not the Tooth Fairy" and "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do". Both would be too cute!!!

Take care girl!!! xoxoxo
