Peeling Off The Layers

There have been a number of "red flags" that have surfaced over the years since we have come to know MckMama.

I think it's interesting to look at the progression and evolution of MckMama to see how much she's changed (or how much she hasn't).

Here are the first tweets where I realized that many of her readers were sending items to MckMama:

MckMama complained that her phone was not working:

And 1 day later:

And then her readers started gifting hotel rooms to her when Stellan was in the hospital @ 40 minutes from MckMama's house:

One of my very first red flags was this tweet while Stellan was in the hospital in Boston in April 2009:

Just because I am curious, what kind of phone can you use to watch TV?

In May 2009 (after Stellan was discharged from the hospital and MckMama was back home), she posted some pictures from the newly decorated room of her two oldest boys (names have been blurred out by me in the pictures that show their wall letters). This blog post was posted on May 23, 2009:

And just because I know MWOP readers will get a kick out of her closing here, I wanted to share this last image from that post:

4 days after the above post, MckMama tweeted the following series of tweets on May 27, 2009:

In February/March 2010, MckMama and her husband had the opportunity to travel to Africa for the first time with Compassion International.

Ironically, here are her tweets from exactly one year ago today (March 5, 2010):

1 year later after her 2nd trip to Africa with GHNI just ended less than 1 week ago, she posted the following just yesterday (March 4, 2011):

I will leave you with this quote about onions (and, no, it's not from the movie "Shrek")...

Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
