Today the kids and I went to the park for a little bit. They absolutely LOVE being outside in this beautiful weather. Camden had more fun playing in the bark chips than he did swinging on the swings or sliding on the slide.

So, I've decided I seriously need to figure out how to deal with stress when it comes to my business. I take things extremely personal, over-analyze, over criticize EVERYTHING and it's seriously driving me nuts.
For example- through my back end of my website there is a way to see who has found my site through other people's site's. (So, if you post my site on your site, your site name will show up on my backend that someone clicked on it through you.) So, I always enjoy going through these- many time blogspots-, looking through pictures of people's daughters wearing our products. Well, I went to one tonight and instead of the happy pictures I saw, I found her talking about how she wants to start making bows and posted a utube video on how to make them. She also posted links to our site showing how she "wants to make them look just like this:" Seriously??? SERIOUSLY???
Or if I go to church and I don't see at least one person wearing one of our bows, headbands or flowers I get all bent out of shape.
Why am I like that? I'm really considering calling Dr. Laura asking her how to deal when my blood starts to boil, my face turns red and steam comes out of my ears. Because it eats at me! And I want to just forget about it, and say, "Well, that's just part of owning a business". Why can't I do that???
On a happy note, we just added these car seat canopy's that I LOVE. They're online and at the kiosks right now. We don't make them (thank goodness!!!) but a local Utah company does.

Boston is one of Kate's best friends. She is a year older than Kate, but they have so much fun together. It's so cute to watch their little imaginations grow. Her mom, Lindsi, and I trade off every other week hosting the play dates so the girls can have fun together and we each get a week to get things done that are normally more difficult with one extra kid.
