Mini Cooper

A couple of weeks ago we went up to Greenville, SC for a visit with Aunt Dottie. Can I just tell you how much my girl loves her Great-Aunt Dottie? "Aunt Dottie, Aunt Dottie...Aunt Dottie!" That's all I heard that weekend! It really doesn't hurt that Aunt Dottie has a cool Mini Cooper convertible and that we got to ride around all weekend with the top down!

Muddy Buddies

What do you think it says about me as a parent that I frequently let my children entertain themselves this way? Truthfully, this my new favorite picture! Look how much fun they are having! I love how my boy is throwing his whole self into that laugh!!

We have a big day today... Kindergarten Graduation!! Can you believe it? Neither can I! My baby - graduating from Kindergarten...WOW!! He's been a little emotional about the day too! This morning he was moping around - feeling melancholy about the day - I grabbed his precious face & said...

"why are you growing up so fast?"

and he replied...

"That's just how it works Mom!"

Be still my heart!

dancing fever

WOW! We had a crazy week last week! FOUR (4) nights of recital!! Needless to say we ate a lot of sandwiches & takeout! This week though promises better meals & less stress! Especially considering that my stomach has ended it's constant nauseousness & so-forth... But that's another story for another day!

The other day Lou was asking me if I would still be her Mother in 13 years - and I replied "yes, of course, I'll always be your Mom!" the rest of the conversation went like this...

Lou: will you be old?

Me: Well, I'll be older!

Lou: Will your hands & arms be all wrinkly?
