Wow, seems like it was not that long ago that we were sitting in the hospital looking at this tiny little body in amazement. Now she is 9 years old and knows absolutely everything...or at least she thinks she does. For her birthday she had a few little events. Friday she had an overnight with the cousin's at her Grandpa and Grammies house. She enjoyed cheesecake and pizza. Saturday we had dinner with Ava, Oma and Opa at the condo on Mercer Island. Good old Opa cooking and a special cake made by Ava and Oma. Sunday was mothers day so she had to share that one with me. Monday we went out to Chinese dinner and ate way to much and then had more cheesecake to celebrate...
Now it seems like it is ages ago but we certainly want to share our life with all. She is now working on Thank you notes and planning how to spend her cash...seems Disneyland will be seeing some of her "economic rewards".
We are ready to finish this school year and hope for better student/teacher fit next year!
Hugs to all, thanks so much for making Megan feel so darn special! I will post some pictures in the next couple days.
"By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong."
I am always looking for another cup of coffee, frequently dream of sunny days, and on occasion I might drink too much wine. I love sarcasm and appreciate it when it is well played. After 12 years my husband still doesn't get my sense of humor. Too dry for him I guess, perhaps he just confuses it with bitchiness.
I am a thirty-something mom of 8 year old boy/girl twins and a 10 year old daughter.
I crave order but have little of it. Evidently owning books about order does not translate into actual order. Chaos seems to live in our home with us.
I work as a nurse and when I am not working I am trying to be a good Mom and Wife. Some days that is a big job!
Man that felt a little like writing a personal ad!
Megan--the oldest and if you ask her the wise old owl of the family. Watches out for her siblings and overly conservative wanting to save, save, save...not like me there!
Elise- Always on the run. A party everywhere she goes! You want fun, call her! She has two modes, on and off. When she crashes she is out!
Trevor- If any of my kids grow up to be a mad scientist it will be him! I think out of all of my kids he is the least like me, but out of all my kids he might love me the most! Maybe later we will worry about how much he loves his Mom, right now I just enjoy it.
