First Day of School

My lovely daugher is officially a 3rd grader now. Where has the time gone? Ethan is a junior - that's even harder to believe. I snapped a couple pictures of Shauna this morning. She's wearing the thumb gloves she just had to have. But, they lasted about 20 minutes and they were off. Just like I knew would happen. I'll be surprised if she ever wears them. These were taken with my camera phone, so the quality is not the best.
I think Shauna is wishing she wasn't growing up. The last two nights, she has requested that I read to her and sing her to sleep. I have to admit, it was great fun to be able to do that again. She usually reads herself every night, so I haven't been able to read to her in a long time. But, she made the request last night when we were already upstairs and I didn't have my reading glasses on me. Yes, she has an old mom! I told her I'd try. So, of course it starts off with her saying "Mommy, the book is too far back". Need it that way baby to try to see the letters! Then, I started reading and there were some pretty funny parts where I read it wrong from not seeing it right - such as saying "lay some eggs instead of buy some eggs". By the end, we were both laughing hysterically so I don't think I did much good in helpng her relax to get to sleep! She did say that my version was much better! Thanks baby!


  1. WOW - she does look grownup!

    But I have to say the gloves....they look a little hooker'esque.

  2. Hooker'esque! ha - never thought of that. I think it just screams 1980s. That whole style is coming back - eek!
