bragging on my kids...just a little

The other night before bed I jumped onto the computer real quick just to check my emails. And then I got sucked into the black hole that is facebook and of course I paid an oh so short visit to my September 05 playgroup. Teresa came over as I typed away and deposited this note in my lap, saying "isn't it time for us to go to bed already?" After laughing myself silly for a few minutes, I took her advice and got moving and put them to bed.


Here is the alphabet as written by Katie (for the very first time EVER!) from memory. She did this on her own while the older two worked on Religious Ed homework and I was occupied in that black abyss called the world wide web that Teresa kindly rescued me from. She made sure to point out the N to me because she said "I don't think I ever made a nicer N Mumma." all serious and proud. I heartily agree.


And lastly I HAD to post this paragraph Sam wrote about one of his heroes.



I was all puffed up with pride and had tears in my eyes when I read the second sentence but before my head could get too big , Sam quickly jerked me back down to earth with the rest of the essay. Hey...don't laugh...how many people do you know that actually drink the recommended eight glasses of water a day. Hmmmmmmmm? I'm a water chugging, talkative, food making, slugger and we all know those are things not just anyone can do.

I can't imagine I'll remain his hero for very long with that sad list of achievements...but I'll take all the accolades he 's willing to dish out, no matter what the reason.
