Have you ever had your computer crash? And you weren't wise enough to have a backup?
Well, that's what I'm living through right now. My laptop is hopeless and I'm mourning all the data (pictures and documents) that I can not recover!!
With this hard learned lesson - I have been working on the family PC. I have many things on our regular PC that I don't want to lose.
Now this may sound like a daunting task - but it's actually been kinda fun. I've been looking at old pictures.. reminising of days when my boys were small. I came across a set of some of my favorite pictures of my youngest. He is now 7 years old.. but these are from when he was 3.
But - before I show you the pictures let me tell you something that you don't know about me. I have ALWAYS had a thing for firemen. Yes.. I know many of you are with me on this. I'm not sure what it is about them but I think it's a combination of many things. They have those sexy pants with the reflector stripe on the bottom.. they could rescue me from a fire.. and they also cook. SOLD!!
Now for the back story. When my little guy was 3 yrs old - I belonged to my neighborhood "Mom's Club". It's basically a group of Stay at Home Mom's who do things together. Like playdates, field trips etc. I must add that these women drove me NUTS! They were catty and judgemental and all they ever wanted to talk about were their kids. But being home with my kids all day.. watching "The Wiggles", I was usually starving for adult conversation. I wanted to talk about World events.. or politics.. not whether little Johnny wet the bed last night!
Anyway - back to the pictures. The Mom's Club organized a field trip to our local Firehouse. I'm pretty sure I moved Dr appts.. and cancelled a visit with the President to make sure I was free to go on this field trip!
Fireman Matt showed the kids the Fire Truck and also had my little guy try on his gear..
When was the last time you sat down and looked at old photos? I highly recommend it. It does the heart good.
