About Me

Plano, TX
Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

First Day of School

Today was C's first day at Mother's Day Out. Reagan came with us today to drop her off. While we were in the classroom with her she was happy, smiling and playing with the toys. There was another little girl whose first day was today also. Her parents left a few moments before we did and she started bawling which freaked Caroline out. They both were screaming and crying (we could hear them down the hall). The class has a video camera so we watched in the school office. The other little girl got so upset she threw up and Caroline was trying to open the class door to make her great escape. The assistant came in the room as back-up. She distracted C while the teacher cleaned the little girl. I of course started crying in the office! Caroline calmed down and started playing again so I left. I cried again when I got in my car! I'm such a cry baby! I forced myself to give her an entire hour before calling to check how she was. She was fine and having fun.

She was so happy to see me when I picked her up. She came running towards me with open arms and a giant smile! The teacher said she did great after she calmed down. She was a stand-offish towards the teacher until she gave her snack (of course - a yummy snack is the key to C's heart!). I didn't realize until I picked her up that today was picture day at school. They brought in a photographer that brought dress-up clothes to the kids to use as props. The teacher said C loved dressing-up and posing for the picture (again, of course!). She said C was a total ham! As we walked to the car I asked C is she liked school and she shook her head yes. Overall I think she had a great day and I'll do better next week......I hope!
