I know. I'm such a retard. It's been a while since I felt this way and I really didn't want it anyways but it found me. I thought I would be alone forever because i didn't think any guy would live up to my standards. right now, I'm just living in the moment. The true test will be the test of time. Not saying I'm in love, but I like this guy a lot and he likes me back :) He does great with Quinn. The cool thing is that she has been much better. I don't know. It must be the thunder in a man's voice that has a way of putting children in their place. i'm thankful that he is not afraid to help me out with her like that. He doesn't cross the line either. What is the code for the line break? -Sarah

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Yay! Good for you! Can't wait to hear stories on here about you, Quinn, and the new man! Glad to see he is bringing out your creative side again. Hope to see more of your beautiful poetry on here!
