I love it when I am reminded why it is sometimes sort of cool to be a mom. Somehow seeing something like this makes me smile, big:
Thanks to Kelsea, La Luz had a productive afternoon with paper, glue and markers, instead of lounging around in front of the t.v. I know how La Luz behaves between about 4 and 6 p.m. so I can't imagine what Kelsea did to keep her focused on the project.
I had an excellent birthday despite the fact that it got off to a rocky start. Christian could barely muster the energy to get out of bed after the Saint's crushing loss last night, much less do something special for my birthday, like smile. The day improved steadily beginning with an excellent package from Molls waiting for me at the office along with multiple emails and text messages from friends and family, followed by lunch with Tiffany and Jessie at St. James. I got home after work to multiple bday banners, cards, and gifts. Mom and Pop even stopped by for a quick visit while I opened my presents. After I turned 30 birthdays sort of lost their charm for me, but I have no complaints about presents and an excuse to feel special for a day. So, thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate.
