Rainbow Rob to the Rescue


This is Rainbow Rob. And thank goodness for this intrepid penguin, because without him I'm not sure Dakin would be eating all of his dinner. For two nights now he's been really fussy about eating his dinner unless this is being read to him. Now, I know that this could be establishing a negative pattern for the future, but since he has to gain weight in order to keep his feeding tube out, I will do what I have to...including multiple readings of Rainbow Rob.

Looks like a cute book . . . my kiddos get their favorites also -- I have soooo many childrens' books memorized!

Devon,

I have a confession. I pick the winners of my daily giveaways by using Random.org. I first picked your number in line of comments for yesterday's post. I thought... 'Hmmm, she just won something last week. Let's try again."

When your number came up - and I'm not lying - two more times in a row, I knew. You were the rightful winner. I'm so happy! You deserve it!

Just email me with your mailing address (sorry, I didn't keep it) and I'll send you the...

'Signs of Spring' bracelet. It is so lovely and a symbol of hope and renewal. You are definitely the rightful owner. Congrats!!!

At least you found something that works. And to that I say stick with it. I'd give anything to have Logan eat or drink by mouth, but he refuses it all. I wish we had a Rainbow Rob. Someday maybe...
