My apologies to any who saw this when I first posted it on my birthday last month but it is still my favorite current story. Here is the original post with a few very slight edits:

this is my Victoria Elaine. did I happen to mention I make the prettiest babies ever? donor requests only considered if done the old-fashioned way . . . ;)

my 7 year old, Victoria (or Tori [yeah yeah I know]) was helping with dinner and MTV2 was on in the kitchen. A girl (Nelly Furtado? is that right?) was on and the song was that "I'm like a bird" deal. Forgive my ignorance, I don't watch MTV or listen to radio much.
I'm not paying attention but Tori seems kinda intent on this video. I ask if she likes this song and she gives me her cold, cynical look and says "see her?". I say "yeah, what about her? She's pretty? Sings nice? What?" Tori says "She doesn't know where her SOUL is!".
It's really funny since it took a minute before I realize this is a lyric from the song. I'm thinking "Oh my God! Why would you say that?!?". Anyway, that's my baby, bless her dark li'l shadowy heart! ;)

Hello All I am new to this community actually have been looking for one for a while I guess I was just looking in the wrong place.....So I am 22 years old with a 17 month old little girl she is the best thing that has ever happend to me but I am alone raising her since I left her daddy when she was only a month and a half....we were not married and some bad things were happening and so I just packed up and left....its pretty hard being by yourself raising a little one....he gives us money but its not thru the courts he just gives when he can so its not consistent but I have a really great job and we are doing fine just the two of us....I thought this would be an awesome place if I ever needed any kind of support so I hope I get to meet all of you....

It's been awhile! Things are going well! It's now been 2 months with out child support. Since I no longer have my second part time job and child support, things are going to be very tight. I'm really going to have to buckle down and live live a hermit.

Caitlyn is such a beautiful child. I love her dearly! But lately she has been ultra sensitive. Normally she has a great sense of humor and she tends to make me laugh. But if I laugh at her these days, she gets very upset and starts to cry! The other night Scott came over and we were going to make banana splits. Caitlyn was in the shower and I thought that I would surprise her, by having the sundae all ready for her. I placed it on the toilet, so she would find it as soon as she stepped out of the shower. Scott and I decided to sit at the top of the stairs, so we could hear her reaction. She let out these giggles and ooos and ahhhhs. So, of course, we laughed out load. She did not like that! She ran into her room and cried. I tried very hard explain to her that we were NOT laughing at her. I hope this is just a phase!

We start soccer this Sat. morning. I say we, 'cause I am coaching her team! I'm very excited to be doing this. I think we will have a great time.

She also started Brownie's last Tues! We have our first camp out (indoors in a cabin) in November. We are both looking forward to that. We both love the outdoors.

As far as my personal life goes! Hmmmmm, still the same. That person is the most amazing person in the world to me. He balances me out! I feel so complete when I am with him. A few nights ago, he questioned why I have a hard time looking him in the eyes when we talk......"It's not that I have a hard time, I'm just afraid that you will see just how much I care about you and that I am falling HARD"!!!
