This weekend, Husband and I met with many siblings for an end-of-summer group date. Along came Adorable Nephew and Adorable Nephew’s Adorable Girlfriend. Upon seeing a copy of my book at my parent’s house, Adorable Girlfriend said:

That may be a little strong. But this is going to be a fight. I am in a battle, anyway.
Hey! I’m taking a little bloggy-break. My sister came into town, and we’re just having a delicious time sitting around and laughing at our kids (who are at this moment rehearsing their “Sunday School Musical” production – details to follow) and eating yummy food.
Really, what is with my children?
Okay, so everyone in the world must know this already, but not so much me.
Kid 2 is twelve years old today. This photo is a year old, but she chose it to be posted here. I like it. Her dad took it, and they’re both pretty proud of it (as they very well should be). I learned a lot of really important things from my parenting experiences with Kid 2, especially in the first few years. Things that have been crucial to my parenting style, my ability to let things go, and my growing up.
Last night I chaperoned Kid 1’s drama class “theatre retreat” to see a Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy concert. It was a little bit spectacular. Amazing to me how a cool-weather hill on a blanket in the grass can feel almost exactly how I imagine the Cotton Club, mid-1930s with Cab Calloway leading the band. With a lot of red lighting and a scatting white guy, I could have almost been there. If you have the means and the opportunity, I highly recommend taking yourself and the entire family to experience something different, clean, exciting, and totally transporting.
