My thoughts and prayers are going out to all in Newtown, CT tonight.
Those poor babies and their poor families.
So much pain and sorrow. So much tragedy.
All I can think is my daughter is in kindergarten.
And I picture her in that classroom.
And it makes my heart break to think of those children.
I know I will be holding mine extra close this weekend.


  1. mary jo, i have been crying since noon. it makes me so sick! i picked up my kids today and i couldn't let them go. i can't even imagine the heartache those families are feeling. i am totally with you- i will be holding mine extra tight tonight!

  2. Me too. It is too much to absorb.
    Holding my little ones tight.

  3. Me too... Brookie is in kindergarten and I can't even imagine!!

  4. I'm right there with you Mary Jo. I couldn't help but think about Landry being in Kindergarten, picturing her in that class. Every time I would, I would start to tear up. When the girls got off the bus, I just hugged and hugged them and then started to cry. They looked at me and asked if I was okay. I said yes, I just really love you. I think we're all feeling the same way.

  5. IKWYM. I'm having a hard time being joyful today because my heart aches for all of them!
    I'm trying to snap out of it because Ellie having her Bday party with her friends today and then next week is her actual Bday.
    I can't imagine what they are going through.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I can't imagine what the families are going through. The whole tragedy is just so inconceivable.
