Hi Kellie. I was speaking with Virginia Ladd today. She gave me you website info. Wow - you have incredible energy and joy that radiates from every word that you post. I have been in the process of starting a new foundation "Victoria's Gift". She has her own Facebook page. The foundation is generating funds for AARDA, here in New York. We are having our first event (5k family fun/run) on 11/6. The irony is, that your friend Melissa Joan Hart is from our hometown. Please visit Victoria's page. Let me know what you think. And if you have any fundraising tips, I would gladly welcome them. I too have Lupus, and my sister does as well. Victoria was 9, and had 9 separate diseases and 3 acquired. She passed away on Aug. 30th 2010. There's a story here. There's a piece of the puzzle that lies in that story. Look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for sharing. I hope the run was a huge success!
Kellie, I love the amazing work you’ve done as an actress. Like your acting, your blog and your commitment to your family are nothing short of stellar. I read your last few posts, and just had to comment on the one on having a little mimic. I can totally relate as my 18 year old was an early talker. That being related, what she said was something I was unaware she had ever heard. At just over six months, plain as day, came the phrase, “aw, sh*t”! I turned and looked at my mom and my sister to verify what I heard. It was a while before she began to express her self with more typical expressions and she didn’t repeat that one. She however was just over a year when she uttered her first complete sentence - “Don’t comb me!” She was also very found of “Read me, Mommy, please!” She could usually stretch bedtime stories to hours. I cannot say enough about reading to your child. Oh, and the comb reference, she had a wild tangle of strawberry blond curls, with the emphasis on tangles. Your caveat of watching what we say is best said the way our pastor words it: “More is caught than taught”.
