DON'T BLINK! Your kids will be teenagers before you can say "Bob's your uncle"
Write down EVERYTHING! Blog it, journal it, write it on a piece of scrap paper, put it in your phone as a note... anything, but write it down. You won't remember the funny and sweet things if you don't!
Just yesterday, I was telling Jason some of the sweet things that Super said about her first day back at school. And guess what? I CAN"T REMEMBER WHAT SHE SAID! I don't know what happened to my memory, but it's frustrating, the past few years my memory has gone down the drain! How stupid is it that I can't remember what she said to me YESTERDAY!!!!
And then, because sometimes , well probably lots of times, my writing doesn't make sense, so I would like to clarify:
Loo is only 12, she just acts like she's 13! (in 7th grade now)
Sue turned 17 she's a Senior now
Super is 7 she's in 2nd grade
Me...I am 35, almost 36. I really don't feel old except when I tell people my kids' ages. Particularly Sue's age. (Most parents of 17 year olds are about 40 or older.) And also when I can't remember anything. I am Dorey. I just need to tell myself. "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!" I guess that's good advise!
Here are some then and now pictures: (I borrowed this idea from my friend Janene...awesome blogger by the way. Even if you don't know her, her blogs are hilarious! You can check her out at "Fordhams" on my sidebar)

Check out her hair! And I just love the mole on her neck.
Caught red handed!
Super likes to sneak my camera. I can always tell when she does it though, 'cause there is inevitably a self-portrait or two... or five! And there is almost always a picture of one of our pets. Today, Dax was her subject. If you look closely, on the left of Dax, there are some stuffed animals. Well, they showed up a few pictures later.
This is a cute picture of her though! What a sweet dog!

Finally, about 2 hours after we left the house, we could finally get the errands done that we needed to do before taking the girls out to dinner for their birthdays.
Dinner was very nice! We went to Tepanyaki. Loo had some sushi, Super had chicken, and the rest of us had steak. YUM-O!
Once we got home for dinner, we gave the girls Rock Band. We don't usually combine b-day gifts but we thought that if everyone would be playing it eventually, it shouldn't go to just one of them. Anyway, after that, we gave Sue the rest of her presents. She got some work out shoes, her hair colored and some jewelry. It's so hard to wrap my head around the fact that she is 17!!! Saying that makes me feel OLD!

Loo loved her binky. No, let me try again, she LOVED her binky. When we thought it was time to get rid of it, we decided we weren't going to buy any more. That was hard. Her binky started getting sticky on the end of it, and soon after that, it started getting a whole. We have her on video telling Jason to "Fix it Daddy, Fix it! My binky's bwokeen". She was sobbing her heart out. Jason told her she had to throw it away, that he couldn't fix it. She cried even more. It wasn't even like throwing a fit either, she was truly sad by the death of her binky. (Every time I watch that movie, I cry)
