Brandie Alexander here, Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of '93!  This is the part where you say "No way!  You can't be that old."

Living in the moment brings you a sense of reverence for all of life's blessings. (Oprah Winfrey)

To say I live in the moment would be an understatement.  I have three children - two under the age of three.  A moment is all I have before someone starts crying or shouting for husband included.

I love music in general but my favorite is country especially the classics.  It's not unusual to see me singing and yes sometimes even dancing along in the studio.  Just be glad its radio because I have no rhythm. 

There's something to be said for loving your job and I do.  Radio and country music have become my own personal crack.  It's an addiction for me.  I have to have it. 

From what I understand admitting I have a problem is the first step. 


An Emrie Update...

I love blogging about my little baby, Emrie.  I feel like you (KORA listeners) have been with me from the beginning.  I saved all of your encouraging emails I received throughout my first pregnancy.  From heartwrenching stories of infertility to home remedies for morning sickness to well wishes when I finally gave birth...YOU GUYS WERE GREAT!  So, I thought it was time for an Emrie update.  She is 19 months old and we have officially began potty training her. 

On Sunday, Emrie used the potty...TWICE! Yes. It was a big day at our house. First of all she proclaimed "Potty! Potty!" So I placed her on her baby potty which was actually mine when I potty trained 39 plus years ago. She pitched a fit. She wanted to be on the big girl potty. So we made the switch and there she sat...for 20 minutes. I tried to stay vigilant by her side but she would give me a stern "out." Go figure. So I checked in every minute.

Emrie, are you through?




Emrie, did you go potty?




Are you through?




After about 10 minutes of this, she asked for a book. A BOOK?! So I grabbed one of her baby books, a baby magazine and a John Grisham book. To my surprise, she opted for Grisham although there were no pictures. Okay - she didn't actually read it but she did make a big show of opening and closing it.

Finally, just after the 20 minute mark she shouted "THROUGH!" I checked and sure enough she had made poo poo in the potty! We clapped and made a big deal over her accomplishment. She was very excited and repeated the same 20 minute process again that evening. This time she and I sang a little song from church called "Oh, Happy Day." I'm not sure the songwriter intended it to be a potty training song but Emrie sang along...OH HAPPY DAY! And, it was.
