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.

Monkey Girl Turns 10!

I can hardly believe it but my little baby girl a.k.a. monkeygirl turned 10 yesterday. (I'm sorry I am writing this a day late, Dahlia!)

As many of you know, it has been trying few days in our household. You can read Carmi's take on the situation here.

Every year when the kids wake up on their birthday, their room and the whole main floor is decorated (this started when I was a little girl, my mom always put something up in our room when we woke up on our birthday morning). Everyone told me not to do it this year because of Zach's situation .

If you haven't gone to Carmi's site yet, here it is. We received a phone call at 1:49 pm on Monday from his school that he was hurt in gym class. Speed up today, he is lying on the couch with a neon green cast up to his thigh. I will tell you all about it tomorrow because today is Dahlia's turn.

Everyone said, she'll understand ( I was and am completely exhausted as I stayed overnight at the hospital with him on mon./tues. and just general stress!) But she would not have understood. This was her birthday...a big milestone as she turned 10. I look at every birthday as a milestone. At least once a year you have one day that's your special day.

So my monkey girl turned ten. I am watching her grow into a beautiful, smart and funny young woman. Every once in a while I catch a glimpse of myself or Carmi and I just marvel at it.

I hope this coming year brings her good health, happiness and all that she is wishing for (except her own dog! :-) One is enough, Dahlia)

May the next 10 years be just as exciting. I look forward to seeing and sharing in all your accomplishments, big and small.

I love you!

Rumor has it that there's another reason your daughter is getting all the attention today and not yesterday. Happy Birthday to YOU!

(your husband spilled the beans, but don't worry there were no numbers mentioned) :)

Happy Birthday to Dahlia AND to YOU! It seems September is as busy a birthday month in your household as it is in mine. I too celebrated one this week, and my son is father's big day is the same as yours....and it carries on until the end of October!!

What a week you've had! Hope Zach is healing well and that you all have a laid back weekend.

Me? I have a bunch of crazed 10 year old boys arriving for a sleepover tonight. I've lost my mind. :)

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to you both. Our children grow up so fast, don't they. And we grow old too soon.

Happy (belated) Birthday to both you and Dahlia! May you both be richly blessed for many happy years to come!

Happy Belated Birthday to Dahlia, and also to you, Morahmommy.

I love how you and Carmi talk about each other and your family. My family were never that tight, and I always wanted the kind of family you seem to have.

Here's wishing for many, many more birthdays for you, and your Carmi - and a lifetime with your beautiful children.

May I add you to my blogroll?

Happy Birthday to Dahlia. Wow, ten. Ten is an amazing age...and you're right, it is a milestone.

We do the small present in the bedroom thing, too.
