Morning Air Show

Mommy Monday's With Jake

By: Lisa Jo Baker

For the days we are running on empty. For the days we just don't think we have it in us to read one more story, play one more game, wash one more round of sheets. For the days when we think everyone else has it together. For the days we're sure anyone else would do this job better.
For those days.

Repeat after me:

2. I shall not measure what I've accomplished today by the loads of unfolded laundry, but by the assurance of deep love I've tickled into my kids.
3. I shall say yes to blanket forts and see past the chaos to the memories we're building.
5. I shall not compare myself to other mothers but find my identity in God who trusted me with these kids in the first place.
6. I shall remember that a messy house at peace is better than an immaculate house tied up in knots.
7. I shall play music loudly and teach my kids the joy of wildly uncoordinated dance.
8. I shall remind myself that perfect is simply a street sign at the intersection of impossible and frustration in Never Never land.
10. I shall promise to love this body that bore these children, especially in front of my daughter.
14. I pray to God I shall never be too proud, angry or stubborn to ask for my children's forgiveness.
15. I shall make space in my grown-up world for goofball moments with my kids.
16. I shall love their father and make sure they know I love him.


... with love from one tired mother to another.

Ebola Information

Ebola Information

Ebola has been in the news a lot lately but that doesn’t mean we’re as knowledgeable as we can be about the disease that is getting so much attention. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is charged with leading the fight against the disease  and has outlined the steps it is taking to stop it at There is also information on the site about Enterovirus D68. According to the site, symptoms of Ebola include:

- Fever (greater than 101.5°F)

- Severe headache

- Muscle pain

- Weakness

- Diarrhea

- Vomiting

- Abdominal (stomach) pain

- Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)

Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola, but the average is 8 to 10 days. Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive clinical care and the patient’s immune response. People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years.
