D can Swim

On the last day of our trip, (I know ya are sick of hearing about it, but we don't get out much, and this was a big deal!) my mom took off Darby's swim vest and the dang girl swam! Like across the pool...repeatedly. Everything about her has been so much easier than with Luke (halleluah!)...

so check out our little Ariel




Isnt' she cute?


On the bad news: I am a pathetic woman who needs to get a life.

#1 because I'm daily debating to stop blogging cause I think its dumb and I have nothing good to say and my material is lame OR that blogger is my friend (in times like these) when I'm feeling like a don't have one...I know, computers are not people.

#2 all summer long I have been day-dreaming and rewatching and dicussing, and obsessing about So YOU Think You can Dance----- I missed the dang show finale tonite! Cause I was scrubbing the floor. And the dumb tub. After my kids went to bed. And folding stupid clothes in the room without a TV. All cause I thought my friend Tivo was recording, but it was recording a rerun of Ugly Betty which is like fourth tier for me! And Jason gets home super late to see me crying after all my scrubbing cause I missed my stupid show. Lets blame it on hormones...that and I seriously need to rethink my priorities. I don't even want to know who won so don't tell me....I'm still upset.

Don't worry, tomorrow I'll happy happy lady, cause I'm sick of my whining too.

Please don't ever stop blogging.
I love your blog.

I love reading your blog. Please don't stop blogging! You crack me up and I love seeing what's happening with the McCoy's. I kinda feel like I know your kids!

Pamela said...

i should probably tell you that like all my sisters AND my mom read your blog! if you stop you would be disappointing sooooo many people! so DON'T!!! i also have the finale if you want to come watch.

Tara said...

You better not ever stop blogging! It's the only way we have to communicate :) Who has time to gab on the phone?

Just blog less often, I think about giving up all the time, mostly because no-one really reads mine, hence I have been posting a lot less often, plus I don't have the time. And, see all your good friends, get over to one of their places this weekend and watch your finale! Darby is a good little swimmer, that was super cute, Kate began by being able to swim like that but by the next summer she was strong enough to get her head above water.

I'm so sorry about your show. I would've cried too.

Also, I agree with Claire - don't stop blogging, just slow down. Definitely slow down if you're feeling the "blogging pressure", but I love your blog, too.

And I totally read Claire's blog!!!!!!

Hey don't stop blogging- I love to see how you guys are all doing!

Sarah said...

Brooke, don't stop blogging! I love your blog! And, Claire, I read your blog too, so please don't stop. I don't get to see you, Brooke, very often, so I love getting to see pictures of your family and see what you're thinking. I already deleted SYTYCD, but it looks like a lot of other people kept it, so I hope you get to check it out!

You had better not stop blogging. Reading tales of the adventures, mishaps, joys, trials, laughs and tears of McCoy family is a pleasure that I would miss. Your honest and hopeful musing always make me smile.

That's so awesome that Darby can swim! what a cute video clip!

I would cry too if I missed the finale of SYTYCD. I'm glad your friends have it recorded for you. It was a great show!

I too have debated about deleting our blog and not doing it anymore. but check you out brooke! You've got tons of people/traffic that look at it every day. it is your claim to fame girl! plus, i love the uniqueness of your blog and your personality that comes through. most blogs are just about all the happy feel good stuff that happens in people's lives. yours is just honest and real. i love it!

Amber said...

That's awesome about Darby. I've been trying to get Jackson to swim but he's too scared.

Lindsey said...

That is an amazing clip of DARBY. Plus I love your blog. And everyone does as you can tell. Anyways, I am so glad you posted it. That is sad about that show b/c I watched the finale and I never watch it. PS.

sara said...

Don't STOP!! I love reading your perspective on being a mom and the silly things your kids do.

Laura said...
