I realized in June that I took no pictures of my kids for the entire month of May. None. NONE. How I let that happen, I don't really know. I think it was all the end of the school craziness that took over my mind and the thought of, Hey Moon, you need to take some pictures of the kids, just never fully settled in the forefront.
So in the hopes of not forgetting this month, I took out the old seamless paper and took a few of the kids.
She'll be nine in 19 days. She's been reading the Harry Potter series all summer and is now on book four (The Goblet of Fire). She'll be starting the fourth grade in 12 more days. Shes' the most like me in a lot of ways. The little blemish looking thing on her left cheek, she's had that for almost a year. A spider bite that never went away and are now doing laser treatments for. She's lucky she has us as parents because had she had my parents, there would be no laser treatments. She'd just have to live with the mark on her face for the rest of her life. LIke I said, she's lucky.
She makes me smile. She is hands down the sweetest out of the three I have. And because of that, I worry about her the most. I hope that as she gets older, she's able to stick up for herself and not get pushed around.
And my last:
He's two and a half. He'll be three in a little over three months. I'm not sure what to make of him yet. He recently learned to say 'I love you'. He says it a lot after I catch him doing something naughty (I wuv you, Mom.) and he knows he's going to be punished. You can't really blame the kid for trying.
