GIRL turns 3!

There are silver glitter sparkles everywhere one looks. On the couch, the living room rug, on books, clothes and on our GIRL's cheeks - a magic dusting of silver. GIRL had a good day. She was very excited about her birthday as soon as she awoke. She ran out of her room naked, tossed her night time pull-up in the kitchen garbage can and shot back in her room. She had to dress for her day. And it was full. We had a morning present opening before Daddy went to work. Then tonight we had chocolate cupcakes to celebrate. In between there was much running about in princess costumes and fancy shoes as well as the reading of new books.


She is 3 and I don't know where the time has gone. I remember so well the day she was born. I will never forget pushing her out (12 1/2 minutes!) and touching her for the first time. And watching E hold her in his arms. Her huge eyes open and observing. From the beginning.

Boy said today, GIRL, now you are 3 and I am 3!

And then they laughed. And I laughed. And then I thought ... this is a little wild - to have 2 children the same age, who are not twins. Yet, here they are. And we adore them. And they adore each other. Two 3 year olds. My, my, my... can I earn extra points upstairs for this?

Thinking of you all over there in birthday land! Hope you're having a ball! Hey, I want to get some chili recipes from you if you indeed have them...from the fundraiser hoe-down at the school!?
