My Day and April Rose

Well, I changed my layout again. I feel like my brain has been hiking up Mt. Everest the last few days. But, I'm pretty happy with my blog right now so I think I can take a break.

I also changed my shirt prices on the website today. I had them at $8 at first, then raised it to $10, but I've decided $10 is just a bit too much to charge for them, since they aren't screen printed. They are now $8 for onesies and toddlers and $10 for youth sizes.

I'd like to mention the whole April Rose situation here, since I've been reading so much about it the last few days, and since I had kept up with her blog and prayed for that baby. This woman, Beccah, obviously has some problems. She either did this for money, or did this for attention, but either way, to use people's emotions and steal from them requires there to be something wrong with your brain. My guess is she is a sociopath, similar to Casey Anthony. Sociopaths have no regard to human feelings, because they have no feelings themselves. Any emotion they show is simply them mocking what they see, and trying to imitate others to appear normal. This allows them to do things, such as make up a dying baby and play with people's emotions, or kill their own child, with little to no remorse. I truly hope this woman gets some help, although I'm guessing she won't and will come up with another scam in the future. I am not dissapointed that April Rose does not exist, however, because that is one less suffering baby and family. Our thoughts and prayers were not for nothing... I'm sure they got forwarded on to another baby and family that needs them.

This morning I awoke to no coffee. I talked myself into getting the kids ready and going to Target for some Starbucks and shopping. Target is definitely my bank account's worst enemy! After that I came home to meet the cable guy so he could hook up our new DVR. We ate dinner (pork chops, stir-fry, and brown rice), and the girls went to bed around 7:30. They had a long, no-nap day so I was definitely ready for them to go to sleep. They were really grouchy and uncooperative all day today, I'm really hoping they both wake up on the right side of the bed tomorrow!

I hope you are all having a great week. Sorry I've been a bad, boring blogger lately, I promise I will start posting real posts every day.

Goodnight!

I couldnt agree more. This person has to be sick. I am just praying for her and hopefully this will be the end of the hoax.

***Walmart is my checking accts enemy!

I agree with you about the whole April Rose situation. I'm relieved to know that there is one less suffering baby out there.

Well said about the whole April Rose situation. Sigh. It really breaks my heart that someone went to those extremes for whatever selfish reasons. It's so sad that she took advantage of so many people and fed off of their hurt and sorrow and grief. "B" really makes me sick. She definitely some serious help...

I LOVE Target too, btw! I could spend hours and hours in there! I give you a major round of applause for taking both girls. I barely make it with just one baby, lol. I spend equal amounts of time entertaining him as I do shopping, ha!

I'm still a little speechless about the whole AR thing. I've never really been close to a Target so there hasn't been a chance to do any damage. lol

I dont understand about these woman either. To kill your own child? I just dont get why they kill them. There are thousands of parents out there who would adopt them. Very, very sad to do that to innocent children.

I agree about Target. I always spend waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much there.

I'm apparently clueless about this April Rose thing. I've been reading so many blogs about it but I have no clue who or what they're talking about!

Stephanie said...

I haven't looked at the April Rose situation in that way before but I like how you're seeing it! I am still so surprised that someone would do something like that.

I LOVE target!!!!!! I wish I won a shopping spree there....I could go crazy :)

I hope you have a great day today with cooperative girls! Caleb on the other hand is whining right this very second!!!

amanda said...

ahh yes ar. crazy. it's like watching a csi episode and you can't change the channel!! praying for her. because she needs that help!!

I actually hadn't been reading the blog, but I've heard a lot about it around blog-land lately.

Sad, sad situation.

And I saw where the pictures she posted of Baby April were actually a doll. Sick, sick, sick.

Target...oh how I miss thee!

I used to spend massive amounts of money there...then we moved back to WV and my town here doesn't have one. Instead they have two Wal-Marts. ::blah::

Good to hear from ya, doll!

XOXO

I can't believe someone could be that sick and use a pretend child to feed on someone emotions. There is really all kinds of real children who does need our prayers instead.

Julie said...

Your blog looks great! You did fabulous! I'm thinking you'll have another business to start in no time! :) I told you...you are SO talented!

Me love Target. In fact, when looking for a new house I asked "where is the closest Target?" and my realtor said the most wonderful words in the world "there are actually THREE pretty close!!!!"

About the whole April Rose thing.. it really makes me sad because there are truly people out there who have gone through or are going through a situation just like the one "B" made up. And it just discredits them.. It's really sad.

I did not personally follow the April Rose blog, but would click on it via another blog, periodically...I can NOT believe someone would fabricate such a story...
beyond my imagination...

I have loved all of your blog looks..so creative...and the T-shirts are too cute..

Never seen or heard of that April Rose blog, but it doesn't surprise me really. It's hard to believe some people online sometimes.

I'm also a fellow Target-aholic! And if they have a Starbucks inside that's double trouble!!
