Since I’ve rarely blogged in 2015, and now I have to blog for 30 days straight, I thought I would take this opportunity to catch you all up on what the kids are up to. And hey, it gives me three days of blog material. I need more kids.
Let’s start with Astrid, because she’s the easiest to still talk about. I mean she can read now, so maybe she reads my blog and I’ll hear about this in the morning…but I’m going to go ahead and talk about her.
She makes me laugh. Daily. And sometimes cry. She still loves me more than anything on this here Earth – which helps because we also have an almost 13 year old who doesn’t seem to like me very much.
Astrid is tiny. So I still pick her up out of bed every morning and carry her downstairs and snuggle with her on my lap while sipping my coffee and watching the Today Show headlines. It’s our 7am routine. She has a thing for Matt Lauer too. You have no idea how super sad it’s going to be when she is too big to carry downstairs. The saddest day ever.
She’s growing out her hair. She wants it to go below her butt before she gets a haircut. It’s about an inch above her butt right now. I’ve started calling her Rapunzel.
She’s addicted to Calico Critters. She has 32 babies, 17 adults, and 7 kids. She plays with them constantly.
She is good at math and piano. I guess they go hand in hand. Her piano teacher(who is also a doctor) has told me this.
She started dancing Hip-Hop this year. There’s nothing cuter than a bunch of six year olds dancing to rap music. Well maybe kittens are cuter. But it’s a close one.
She likes to read about Geranimo Stilton.
She loves cats, chocolate, lemons, and sushi. But doesn’t eat cats.
She has the best smile.
She runs the household. We have no problem with this.
She wants to marry me and bring me to college. This could happen.
She continues to complete us. Unless she’s talking in this really annoying whiny voice. Then I want her to go to her room. This also happens.
