Tonight was all about my fab. 5 year old. We had her school orientation. It was all very overwhelming for me but a good overwhelming. Gracie seemed to really enjoy it and loved meeting her new teacher Mrs. Stein. Although she still wants to take Miss Lohrey with her from her 4k class. She jumped right in playing with the other children when the meeting portion was over. What a delight it was to see her not being shy and going right along with the others. I guess I don't need to worry about her making friends.

The other day Gracie and I had a conversation about what makes us think of each other. I said things like Disney Princesses and anything pink and here is what she said about me:

Croc's-"whenever I see someone wearing Croc's I always think of you because you always wear them" (She is right I do wear them almost every day. It's almost weird when I don't wear them)

Frozen Coke-"I know you love those Mom" (I think I stop to get one of these at least 4 times a week.)

People Taking Pictures-"You always do that"( I was the only mom in the class to take a picture of her on orientation day...need I say more)

Big Sunglasses-"You look so cute in them Mommy and you always have them on your head" (Confession- I feel naked without them)

So my little 5 year old knows me very well. I think this list almost says more about her then it does about me. She is observant and even complimented me a few times in there. What a little sweetie!

It's been a rough week around the house with stress levels high. I went to work today thinking that it was going to stress me out even more because I would be thinking of all the things I need to get done when I get home from work and in the next few days. WRONG!!!! It was great. Have I ever said how much I love my job? I work at The Scrapbook Store with a group of women that I am proud to say are all my friends as well as some of the customers. My first customer of the day was just such a delight and it seemed to be a whole day of customers that I know as well as new ones that where just such fun to be around! I love having grown up conversation time! It made me forget about all my worries even if they were there waiting for me when I got home. But then when I had to deal with some of my stress I had a fresh pair of eyes to look at it with due to the break from life. The kidlets spent the day with Nana going to Sam's Club to get a jumbo pack of blueberries (seriously-the thing is huge) and Popsicles. Gracie loves Blueberries!! In fact on our 15 min. drive home from my moms I think Gracie made sure we had the blueberries in the van at least 3 times.

OK, I am guilty!
Guilty of not posting in my blog. I found this picture of Q and he just looks guilty so I thought this was a good "you caught me not posting in my blog" look. It's a little after 2am and I was scrapbooking at the store I work at until 1:00 am or so and there was so much fog in my area that my normal 20 min. drive home took me 1 hour! Plus because the air was so dense my asthma that rarely bothers me was really acting up. I knew that if mine was bad that if my little Gracie had been outside at all that she would have trouble too. Hers is bad enough that she has been admitted into the hospital for it a few times to many for my book. So I rush int he house and listen to her breath. Her breathing was fine. Then I got to thinking what a blessing it is to hear her breathing normally. I found myself on the edge of her bed just listening to her for several min. It's just so comforting to know that she is breathing easy tonight. I think now I will sleep well knowing that all is well.

I can't believe I let this blog go for this long. It has been way to long since I wrote. There are so many new things in my life including these feet over here. I vowed that after my life settled down a little that I would jump back on the blog train. Well, I soon realized that life never slows down it just picks up momentum with every life change and addition to the family for that matter. I guess when i was the mother of one I never knew how easy I had it. But I think every mom says that. Its really pretty late and I need my rest fora day at state fair tomorrow.
