Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

Monkeygirl turns 11!

It's so hard to believe that my little baby girl is 11 now. Dahlia our sweet girl is now officially a tween! She was so excited. She already had her clothes picked out (since Tuesday) as well as her "birthday girl" pin. They were ready for the big day.

Some might say I make too much of a big deal about birthdays. But, I feel that at least one day a year you should feel special. It's your day and everyone should make a big deal about you.

She awoke to a house filled with balloons and computer generated posters (yes, tinkerbell was on them...hey even tweens still like tinkerbell!). Ribbons were tied to her door and the banister. I even had balloons and posters in her bathroom.

She is my sweet monkeygirl. I adore her. I felt so bad for her. She has been running a fever for the last couple of days. Nothing in the am and then high in the afternoon and evening. Thank god for Advil junior!

We spoiled her rotten today and I hope she felt special. She is a special young lady, who is funny, smart and so caring. I can't wait to watch her mature and grow through the years.

I love you Dahlia!

You have a beautiful daughter! (Saw her photo on your husband's blog.)

How wonderful for you to make your children's birthdays so special! They will love these memories you make for them! Traditions are very important!

Happy Birthday, Dahlia!

She knows that every day of her life is special, thanks to you. I can tell by the way she looks up to you from the first moment she gets up in the morning to the quiet time at night when you tuck her in. She knows to the very depth of her soul, and I'm lucky to have the view that I have.

I think it's wonderful to make such big deals on birthdays! And I can't believe she's 11 already! Hope she had a wonderful time.

I remember oh so clearly when I was 11. Many things changed for me that year.
