Happy Mother's Day!

Our Mother's Day cards this year

Yes, my Mother’s Day post is late, but I was busy enjoying the weekend with my girls.  I would like to wish a special mothers day to my mother first off- she is by far the best mom ever.  Ask my sisters, my children, her other grandchildren, and any of the kids she takes care of at her school: she’s the best

I would also like to wish a special mother’s day to all the PFFD/CFD mother’s out there.  It’s hard being a mom and having to watch your little one have surgery after surgery and be in pain.  My heart goes out to you all, and I hope you all have a wonderful day.

I had the best mother’s day- I have two wonderful girls and just enjoyed spending tiem with them.  They showered me with gifts, delicious food, and balloons (which were a huge hit!)  

Happy mother’s day!

Shoelift Repairs

There are several complications that arise when you have a shoe lift.  Normally, we like to have more than one pair of shoes for her, but currently only have one pair for Rory.  One complication that we have had in the past and are currently dealing with, is that the lift can come apart.  Her shoes began coming apart and were flaking on the toe, and we knew from the past that once a little bit flakes- its only a matter of time before it all flakes!

I called up her prosthetic and he informed me that we could bring the shoe in for a repair (we were happy because it would take a lot of time to money buy, ship, and make whole new shoes for her....again, another reason why it is SO good to have 2 pair of shoes for her!).  The girls and I made the morning out of, we drove almost hour and a half just to drop off the shoes.  We had some fun, went shopping and ate “doughnuts” at Panera (which Rory requested) and on the way home she was excited to watch Rudolph the red nosed reindeer on her phone!  

We are waiting to pick up the shoe... She has a lot of her cousin’s old shoes- some are flip flops, some have little heels, some are sandals, some are athletic shoes- but all of them are amazing not just because they were her cousins, but because they don’t have a lift on them!  Rory loves wearing any pair of shoes she wants, She told me today that she missed her lift- and that she is faster with her lift on

I think this little “break” from the lift is good for Rory too- When she walks without her lift her leg gets really wonderful extension, which is one reason we are still going to physical therapy.  For the most part, we are enjoying the different shoes she gets to “model” each day!

David and the Giant

At Rory’s preschool they had a musical of “David and the Giant.”  Rory had worked so hard each day singing and knowing her lines for the musical.  She sang at school, sang at home, in the car- she sang her little heart out.  

The day finally came and Rory woke up excited.  I got her a corsage at the flower shop, (actually I got her a boutonniere, because the corsage’s were $30 and I could easily see Rory ripping it off after a five minute.  I put the boutonniere on a bracelet and she actually loved it!).  She had never been to a flower shop and loved smelling all the different flowers. 

When it was closer we got ready, everyone in the house got “fancy,” probably more fancy than we should have been- but we didn’t care.  We all fixed our hair, wore dresses, put on perfume, and Rory was thrilled to put on her sparkly shoes (without her lift)!  

It was finally time for her performance.  I took pictures while holding up the video camera.  Zin loved it too- she was staring at her sister the whole time.

  It was the cutest 20 minuets ever!  Rory sang the loudest too!  After the show Rory got more flowers.  She was so proud of herself and we were so proud of her.  It was also nice that we all had ice-cream afterwards!
