Okay…I have been fired… The first time in my life, I have been fired from a job. As you all know, my son Dakota is a ICF cagefighter. This Holiday weekend he had another championship WIN in the cage. And once again I was the videographer and failed to push record. This has happened twice since he started fighting and the other times I got more of the ground than the fight. Anyways… last night he informed me that I was fired and his girlfriend would take over videoing the fights from here on out. He told me that I was a great photographer and needed to stick with the camera, and let go of the video camera. I went to bed wondering how I was going to stand there and watch him fight without a “job” to keep my nerves occupied. The job as an onlooker and having your son in the cage is probably the hardest job I have ever had to do. It isn’t easy being fired by your own son. But life goes on and so do the cagefights. He has fights the next three weekends. I guess mom will be sitting ring side fiddling my thumbs waithing for the bell to ring so I can relax. 

Since Dakota  first started fighting he has always said that for some reason, with all the hollering and cheering in the crowd, he can only hear mom and his trainer. Cage fighting is no different that watching your child play football or basketball. So of course, I am screaming my head off every fight in support of my son. I am waiting for him to suggest that I don’t holler so much, because I make him nervous… But that will never happen… after all…. I am the mom!!

Congrats Dakota on another WIN… Even though you fired me… I am still so very PROUD of you!

Childhood Friends…

We all had them and some of us still do. Mine was a brown teddy bear named Sheba. He was a gift to me the day that I was born by my parents. I loved Sheba he was with me through my childhood years and even slept with me through my divorce. He was passed down to Kiona and now has a spot in the crib next to Bryson. Kiona liked Sheba… but now Bryson loves Sheba! He likes to bite his nose and cuddle with him.

This little guy truley loves his childhood friend also. They are the bestest of friends!! Just wanted to post these to give you a little taste of the past. Remember those childhood friends and if he is stored in a closet at the bottom of a pile of stuff… dig him out and give him a new spot on your bed. We never outgrow these friends you know?!
