Friday Night Leftovers (after birthday edition)

  • When I look at Thomas now, the first thing that comes to mind is "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!"  It's hilarious.
  • The big birthday bash is tomorrow even though we celebrated extensively yesterday!
  • We have officially said goodbye to the baby NUKs - I couldn't be more excited and Marilyn has hardly skipped a beat!  I'm sure I'll get a short blog posted about that soon. 
  • I have so many lists right now - luggage packing lists, food/menu items to have on the ferry lists, school registration lists, job/interview topic/response lists, roadtrip/travel lists, & moving/packers list to just name a few. My brain is going crazy right now.
  • In the last few weeks, I've been extremely disappointed in folks that I thought would extend a friendly goodbye/happy birthday to our family/kids.  But alas...I guess not.  Brian continues to remind me that my happiness and certainly our family's happiness is not determined by what other do/say or don't do/say.  I know he is right - I just need to move past it regardless of my expectations of others.
  • The kids had their annual checkup/school physicals this past week. Abby is the only one who needed shots and she was a rock star when she had to get several "kindergarten" shots.  Words can't describe how proud I am of her because this was the first time in her 4 years 10 months that she didn't cry or lose it at the doctor.
  • It becomes more clear to me each day that Marilyn is our jokester in the family.
  • On that same note, Thomas is the people-pleaser and Abby is the helper/boss of our crew. 
  • Abby is obsessed with her hair growing long.  Daily she asks me to take a picture of her so she can see the length in the back.
