I just wanted to give some advise to all my peeps out there with young children.....
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)
