Olivia is my oldest and she just turned 6!!! The time has gone so fast and I now wonder how I will feel when she is off to college??? I won't worry about that right now, I will just love on this sweet little girl who worries about how people feel around her, and she is always wanting to have a good time..... kind of like her dad!
We didn't have a big friend party this year, we just did a family bbq and went to the mall to get her ears pierced. Olivia has wanted to get her ears done for awhile now but we said she had to wait until she was 6.... So when we asked Olivia what she wanted for her day, she said her ears pierced please!!!
So on her big day we headed of to the mall to brand my daughter for ever, It was kind of sad that know she would be marked and not all perfect. But I got over it and her ears look so cute. It was a little dramatic, and there were tears shed but all and all she did great. We even stopped on our way out of the mall for a big ice cream cone, and all pain was forgotten!
Later that night we asked Olivia if she had a good birthday, and she said how could I not it was the most perfect day ever!!!! So I'll end at that.... if only every day could be the most perfect day ever????

Well it's official I am the mom, I am the one in charge. I know I should know this already but it takes a while for it to sink in. I always think of my self as young and can come and go as I please, but now that I have a 6 yr old and a 3 yr old my life is no longer my own! Yup it just hit me... maybe somewhere in between driving my preschooler to school in the morning mon. wed. and fri only to come home for half an hour to turn around and drive kindergartner to school to come home and hurry and put the little one down for a nap just as soon as I do that it's back to school to get the oldest.... then home and 2 days a week dance class. I know I'm tired just typing it.
When Brian and I started to talk about having kids I remember my mother in law would say to me just be prepared to put your own life on a shelf because it will no longer be about you.... man was she right. I love my little family and I am happy I have a girl house, growing up with all brothers has some draw backs, I'm sure you can imagine! It's just lately I really feel like the mom! I have know idea how my own mom did five kids..... THANKS mom! It's all worth it right?
WELL till next time
