"Dad, for Open House at school the teachers are decorating the whole classroom with our good art and then we get to go to school at night and see our friends when it's almost dark out and you guys can see the alphabet art book I did and the really good story book I wrote and my seeds. The seeds I planted are growing super fast, actually and you can see them. I will show them to you."
You Guys? Three years ago today, I staked my claim in this little corner of the internet. Smacksy is three-years-old and apparently, a Taurus. I'm not sure what this all means except that I am so very grateful for all of you that stop by here.
Sharing my stories and my family with you every day is a great pleasure.
Thank you for hanging out here. You rule.
"Boys and girls, today Bob's mom has come to school this morning to read a book to the class. Let's say good morning to Bob's mom."
"Hi, Bob's mom."
"Good Morning everyone. Today I'm going to read one of Bob's favorite books, "Madeline." Madeline is a little girl who lives in a city called Paris in a country called France. Has anyone here been to France? And Bob's raising his hand, yes Bob?"
"You guys I've been to France but I was a tiny baby and it was a really long airplane trip and I was awake the entire time, like twelve hours. Right, Mom?"
Guys? I know I've posted this photo before but it's Bob's sixth birthday today. This year, for some reason, I'm feeling especially sentimental about the whole situation. We met Bob Rosenberg on May 5, 2006. Six years later, I still have that look on my face most of the time, only now it's without the painkillers. I'm a lucky gal. Happy Birthday, Bob.
Tonight, I walked into the bedroom to find a sweet scene: Jeff and Bob in mid-conversation after reading bedtime stories. They looked up and smiled at me and then my boy leaned over to his father and whispered, "Dad you really need to watch your language."
