Then I call one of my co-workers who I look up to quite a bit, she always reassures that everything is okay. Well she is telling me about how she went to school to pick up her son and noticed this little boy sitting by himself and everyone else is gathered around signing yearbooks and he is just sitting there. It broke her heart as it did mine when she was telling me this, she said she had tears in her eyes, because she could only imagine how he felt. This goes back to my friends daughter who had to be taken out of school because people were making fun of her. WHY? Why do we make fun of people, we are all the same, we all have feelings. If there is anything I wish to teach my kids its that it does not matter what you look like, what color you are, what religion you are or what disability you have, we are all the same and all have feelings, some people may show it different or never express it, but deep down inside it really hurts. I know I am guilty of making fun of people once in my life and I can promise everyone and myself that I will never do it again.
Okay, now that I have gotten that out I feel better. Thanks for listening to me and remember to cherish everyday with your kids/Family, you never know when it will be the last.

Jaxon now almost 4 years old
Jaxon Bailee Clemments
Me the day before Jax was born
Jaxon was born on May 30th, 2004, I was scared to death of the whole labor thing, so this is how the whole thing went down.
I was two weeks over due and so they scheduled me to be induced on May 29th, 2004 at 9pm, so you might be asking why so late (I wondered the same thing and still do to this day). So everything was going good at first except for the fact that I was so nervous and anxious for it all to be over so I didn't sleep at all. At Midnight my contractions started getting pretty bad, I was very uncomfortable, the nurses kept getting mad because I couldn't sit still, OOPS!!! So finally at 2am I decided I needed the epideral so atleast I could get some sleep, so they check me and I was still only dialated to a three, OKAY!!! So I went in at a three, not much progress. After I got my epidural I finally started to get comfortable and I they gave me some medicine to relax me, well when they gave me this medicine it not only relaxed me, but made Jaxon's heart rate drop to the 60's, which is VERY LOW!!! I was immediately freaked, because I had all these buttons going off, I had twenty nurses around me and I was talking to my doctor on the phone who was telling me that they were taking Jaxon C-Section. I can't even describe the feeling that I got, but it was so crazy, I was shaking and crying and my Mom was upset and I just wanted someone to tell me everything was going to be alright.

WOW, its been a few weeks since I last blogged, but boy has a lot happened.
First, we have had two Tball games, I never knew how much work it would be to coach 12 little kids, but boy is it sooooo MUCH fun!!! Every single kid has a different personality, they all are learning and its so much fun to be a part of that, I know that I will be remembered for a long time.
Second, both of my boys are turning a year older, Jax will be 4 Friday, I can hardly believe it. I swear he was just a little baby and now he is all grown up :( My baby, Ash is turning 2 and this is the biggest shocker to me, these past 2 years have flown by so fast, we had a lot of struggles along the way with Ash, but HEY, we made it. My boys amaze me everyday, they are both intelligent, loving and the cutest boys I know. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAX AND ASH!!!!
And last but certainly not least, Jax finished his last day of his first year of Preschool, I am happy and sad. Sad because thats just one year closer to him going to Elementary and happy because he has learned so much and I can't wait to see what next year brings. Thank you Cynthia for teaching Jaxon so much and being so caring, he couldn't of had a better teacher.
