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.

Happy 16th Birthday Zach!!

Wow! How can it be that my first child is 16?! I know I say that with each birthday, but it truly boggles my mind that my little baby is 16.

Over the last few months I have seen a maturing in a way that really warms a mother's heart. He's funny (he has a sense of humour like his father!!), he's smart, he can recall facts about things (another thing just like his father!) that you marvel that he knows.

He's trying to be nicer to his siblings, although not as much as I would like. He tells me it's his job as the older brother to tease and torment the younger ones! He loves that he is about 6 or 7 inches taller than me and loves to pat me on my head...."little mommy!" he says.

He's affectionate with us, his grandparents and his dog. What a lovely young man he has become!

Have a very happy birthday Zach! May all that you are wishing for come true for you!!

A prouder mother there could never be!

This weekend was one of those moments that you store in your mind for ever. My sweet Dahlia had her Bat Mitzvah this weekend. What a proud moment. Amazing does not begin to describe how well she did on Saturday in our synagogue. I wish that at my age, I would have the poise and confidence that she has displayed this entire weekend.

Many pictures and stories to come. Going back to enjoy the time with the family that is still here.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian Friends!!
