For Valentine’s Day my daughter, the poet, wrote me the most amazing song. She wrote it, then typed it so I’m leaving it with her grammar and spelling…
I’ve been waiting for u. To come and look at this tune You’re the best mother in the world. Let me talk to u about it.
If it wasn’t for my mother . I wouldn’t have a brother. Think about it carefully. I can trust u too.
All u do all day is wash and clean and spray. When I think about u I start to cry deep deep down inside.
But all this song really taught me was to keep on going this way. The messege I ment to send u was Happy Valentine’s Day
She’s 8 years old, clearly with a soul that is much, much older…
I just love these handcrafted gifts and I’m already seeing them diminish slightly as they get older which is sad.
My son threw this together last-minute and when I said, “why no words?” He said, “a picture is specialer”.
Did you get any endearing V-Day gifts?
My most precious jewels!❤️❤️❤️
My son has been playing roller hockey for two or three years now and he really loves it. This winter we enrolled him in ice hockey for the first time and his love for hockey has grown ever more. His dad plays hockey; he idolizes his dad. So I guess it makes sense that he has a love for the sport also.
It’s an absolute thrill for me to watch him. I’m so uncoordinated. I trip over absolutely nothing so you can imagine what I look like with a pair of skates on! To see him play really makes me almost tear up! He says hockey is his “passion”
So nice that he’s found it at age eight, huh?
Earlier this week I was delighted to be able to visit my little one in her classroom for her Star of the Week festivities.
Each week a student in the class is the Star. A poster is displayed all about that child and a parent visits to read a story and bring a treat.
Except in this case, my daughter wanted to read her own stories which was fine with me
Prior to my arrival the kids had come up with some adjectives on the easel to describe the Star of the Week and I got such a kick out of reading some of them…
I think they’ve described her pretty accurately
I relish every moment of these visits. Sometimes I just want to hit the pause button…like when I entered the class and the kids were on the rug learning math and my little one spotted me, smiled big as can be and shouted MOMMY!
I try to savor these seconds…how about you?
Found my 6-year-old doing this the other night…
My children love that Pane Italiano I get at Trader Joes and I always encourage them to dip it in their soup, their gravy, etc.
I guess the little one took it to a new level…but there were no veggies left by the end of dinner!
Do your kids struggle to eat their vegetables?
Today we are all home frolicking in the much-anticipated snowstorm that has hit the northeast. I guess I shouldn’t really say WE as I’m actually curled up under multiple sweaters and blankets with a hot cup of tea just WATCHING the frolicking.
It’s so rare my husband gets a day off so I’m thrilled that his office closed today. And more thrilled that I didn’t have to be the one clearing the driveway
Last night as we watched the snow come down the kids were bouncing off the walls beyond excited. We let them stay up late hanging out with their friend who lives a couple of houses away and was over hanging with us. She snapped this photo which is so funny:
Did you have snow today too?
I hope you are having a great New Year’s Day.
Thanks for following along with our adventures day after crazy day.
Here’s to a healthy and wonderful 2014!
Last week my twins celebrated another birthday. It doesn’t feel like a whole year has passed since they turned 7!!!
I had told them last year that in third grade we would be stopping the big bashes. Fall birthdays are rough as the friendships are still new…I’m over inviting half the class but if they just invite a few friends to a little celebration I worry about feelings being hurt. And the stress is all magnified times two…so…
In lieu of parties we did a quick overnight to Great
Germ Wolf Lodge because my kids cannot get enough of that place. The good news is that it was a great time to go as it was empty but the bad news was that I couldn’t breathe and my asthma kicked up bad this time in there. Because it was so empty we rode on every ride one thousand and one times. (It was a great time to go but honestly I don’t know that I’m ever able to return…my breathing was that bad…)
Both coming and going we stopped at Cracker Barrel restaurant because we don’t have any around here and it’s now part of our GW Lodge routine. I really love those Chicken N Dumplins and the kids of course just love to go crazy in that store. I got a lot of good ideas for holiday gifts for the kids.
On the actual birthday, one twin’s teacher allowed me to visit, the other allowed instructed me only to send in treats. My daughter wanted those number custom 8 Dunkin Donuts because “no one does cupcakes in 3rd grade MOM”. I did have loads of fun visiting my son in his classroom. We played a game and then I made sure to embarrass him by showing all his classmates this adorable baby picture!
That night we did our birthday tradition of going out for Japanese hibatchi…it’s always a lot of fun.
I’m still getting a little choked up looking at the baby picture….how does time seem to moving faster as they get older?
