Little's Logo

Thank you so much to all 78 of you who voted for which design should be Little's official logo. And the winner is.......

So once that was down, I had to figure out what to put on the back.  All along I had figured I'd write a scripture verse that I felt related to Little and the road he is facing.  I sat there the other day, typing words like "scripture for strength" and "Bible verses for healing" and finding some great words, but nothing that really said "PICK ME! PICK ME!".  And then it hit me out of nowhere - well, somewhere, but I don't know where.  These 2 lyrics just popped into my head and made perfect sense.  First, keep in mind my nickname for Andrew.  Second, think of  Duchenne and what it will do to his body and how much we will need God to get us through.  Figure it out?  No?  Well here ya go:

Right?!?!?!  I love it.  Love it, love it, love it.  I got so excited that I called my mom, who promptly burst into tears, which then made my tear ducts explode (which is a fairly normal occurrence for me - I cry like 12 times a day.  Happy, sad, grateful, humble, empathetic, sympathetic, and sometimes just plain old pathetic tears) as I realized how relieved I was that someone besides myself liked it because it truly struck a nerve in me. In a good way, I mean.  I crack every time I tell someone what I chose to put on the back.  I am such a sap.

Here's the front of the shirt.

Now I made this particular one on my Cafepress store - and it is there for purchase BUT if you buy directly from me, it will cost HALF as much as the one on my store site.  This is because I am ordering in bulk from an online screen printer but Cafepress is a single order store with more t-shirt color options (so not just grey) and mulitple products (and not just t-shirts).  I have more products there than just the Andrew shirt.  For example;

Feel free to go check it out, I'll be adding more items with different designs soon and all the profits from my DMD merch go into Andrew's medical funds account.

The back of the shirt that I am bulk ordering will look just a bit different than what I have posted here.  The font is slightly different and the t-shirt is a standard Gilden Heavy Weight Tee in that same ash grey color.  So just a difference in font.  They come in Adult S, M, L,  XL, XXL, XXXL and Youth S, M, L.  If you have a wee one like Andrew, you'll have to order a tot shirt off the cafepress store, just like I will have to for my son.

If you want one of these babies, just let me know!   I am selling them for just $12.00 a piece and putting the profits into Andrew's medical account (like all other donations).  If you are going to walk with us in the MDA Muscle Walk in Little Rock, AR on March 10, then you get your tee for $10.00!  I'm going to set up Team Andrew on Monday and I'll let ya'll know how to join then.  But if you want to get your order in before that, just let me know you'll be walking.

So $12 (or $10 if you're walking) to me or my mom (plus $5.00 if you don't live near one of us and we have to mail it to you) plus what size(s) you need.  You can e-mail your order to me at (sorry I can't get it to work as a hyperlink) or leave me a comment on here or on facebook or call/text me at 501.I'mjustkiddingthere'snowwayI'mblastingmynumberontheinternet.  heehee.  But if you have my number, feel free to order that way.  Be sure and leave me an e-mail address or number I can message back to with the address of where to mail your money if needed.

Also, some of you may have noticed the DONATE button on the right hand side of this blog.  If you wish, you can just use PayPal and click on that button.  Then message me to let me know you paid and what size you need and where I need to mail it if you don't live near me or my mom....and who you are, lol.

Please understand that these t-shirts are fundraisers.  Duchenne makes for an expensive child, especially when his doctors are all located in other states.  Seriously.  Not one of them is in Kentucky.  In fact one specialist who we are supposed to see at the end of this month is all the way in Columbus, OH.  That's 15 hours worth of gas and 2 nights in a hotel.  So if you feel inclined to pay more than $, say, rounding it up to $15.....I wouldn't try to stop you.  *insert big sheepish grin here*  Or if you don't even want a t-shirt but would like to help Little, that would be greatly appreciated, too.  Honestly, it's kind of embarrassing to be typing those words here, knowing you all are going to read them and realize that we do not have the riches of King Midas, but this is my little boy's life here and he's worth so much more than my pride.  Please just know that I love you all so much for the support you've been showing us - emotionally, spiritually, financially, or just by taking the time out of your day to catch up with us by reading this blog.  Poop, there go those tear ducts again.

Now who wants a t-shirt?


  1. I want a shirt, I will e-mail you my size and pay with it for paypal when I get the money!

  2. Awesome!! Let me know if you have any trouble with the e-mail link, I've never tested it.

  3. I found your blog via the link you posted to Kellyskorner. It was just a random click since I do not normally do that. God must have been directing me. May god bless you and your family and most especially Andrew. I have always donated to MDA. Know that one Grandma in Amarillo, Texas is praying for you and your family.

  4. Thank you, Stephanie! I have always believed that God puts people in our paths on purpose ;)
