*kiss* "Mommy...??"

"What is it Nathan?"

"Mommy, the Goose is awake."

"I know, I can hear her."

"I will sing her a song to go back to sleep."

"OK Nathan, that will be nice."

*picks up receiver end of baby monitor that he thinks works 2 ways*
"Luuuuuucy, go to sleeeeeeep.
Luuuuuuucy, go to sleeeeeeep.
Luuuuuucy go to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep."

"Nathan, that was really nice-"

"I'm not done yet.

"That was very kind Nathan, I liked your song."

And Who Doesn't Support Breasts??

Dear Friends and Family,
This year, I'll be participating in a very special event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day.

I'll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

I've agreed to raise at least $2,200 in donations. I hope to raise even more and to do that, I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation of $50? Please take a look at the enclosed donation form and designate the amount that's right for you. Please keep in mind how far I'm walking -- and how hard I'll have to train.

I am doing this walk for many reasons including a self promise to improve my health. However, the person I am specifically walking for is my godmother, Susan Armstrong. She has since passed on but I teach her lessons of love, kindness, thirst for life and even pampering to my children every day.

According to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, approximately 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the disease. That's why I'm walking so far. To do something bold about breast cancer. I hope that you'll share this incredible adventure with me -- by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.

You can donate online by following this link:

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Sincerely, Bethany Zabrosky

And People Wonder Why I Am So Chatty on the Phone

He stands up from his plate of peanut butter sandwich, walks over to me and says...
"Mom, I can’t eat.
I can’t drink.
I can’t do all those things.

I have to go stinkies."

This is the type of conversation I receive during the day. I pity the person who calls me and gets and earful of nothing in general just because I am happy to hear a grown ups voice!
