My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

our little ballerinas

After one of those days when I would have sold my children to a passing gypsy for less than a dollar (Mom, I know what you mean now!), I fell in love with my children all over again when I got them dressed up to head out for a night of Halloween revelry. OK, it was an hour of Halloween revelry, but still, we reveled! We ventured to downtown Brea with the Pentons ... which by 6:00 was already packed! But Josie had a great time. She wouldn't play any of the games, but she watched Christopher play them, which was fun, and she definitely thought getting candy in her bag was pretty awesome. She loved spotting the moon in the sky and watching all the other kids play games. It was our first Halloween experience as parents. And, as exhausting as it was, we had a good time. And since our kids are young, we were home by 7:30, put the kids straight down, and we still have an evening! So now its off to watch Star Wars with my husband and crochet another hat. (Ack! The boutique starts on Friday!

There will come a day when she doesn't want to eat EVERYTHING, right?

Josie telling Daddy a story ... no time for pictures!

OK, so she's not built like a ballerina ... yet.

Still not up for pictures.

Isn't she cute? Those shoes left red marks on her feet, despite being on the loosest buckle. Her poor fat little feet ...

The best I could get of the two of them together. Ella's face cracks me up.

Tired baby. Just before this picture snapped, she was resting her head on Daddy's arm.

Ella looks like she's been eating bear claws two at a time. "I have what you'd call 'a little bit of a weight problem'".
