Girl Stuff

The last two nights Cassie has wanted me to be in her room and talk about stuff...

We have covered a wide range of topics and played some tic-tac-toe and hangman too.

She has always been mature in areas, I don't even know if that is the right word, intellectually more aware of emotional type stuff...

OK she has always asked me questions that are far above her *age level* if you will, but it's what she needs. My poor husband says *Don't tell me, I don't want to know* LOL!
This is his only daughter, she has 3 brothers and a dad to protect her :)

Anyway now she wants me to watch the Ya-Ya's, I love the Ya-Ya sisterhood but I was trying to get us to bed sooner because we are meeting new friends tomorrow, well today :)

So I'm off for a bit of the movie then we shall head to bed.

I wish you guys lived closer; I bet your Cassie and my Rach would get along. :)

To answer your question on my blog - He wrote a note to put in a little "ad letter" that we put together at the co-op - it said:
Dear Gym Teacher (it is his mom):
Your class rocks.
And your son is hot.
And signed it - Anonymous.
I prepared the newsletter and left the second part out because although I thought it was very cute - I didn't want to embarrass him - thinking it was a 4th/5th grade girl.
Turns out HE wrote the note and paid the 50 cents to put it in.

His mom was furious.
It cracked me up! Maybe I have a skewed perspective - but he was trying to be funny! That is rewarded in my home!

I love chatting with my girls too. I make it a point to have one-on-one time with each of our kids at least once a week. It has been wonderful journey knowing them and growing together. I didn't have that relationship with my mom which is sorely missed and my regret.

Glad to be back after two weeks and can't wait to catch up on reading your insightful musings! Happy New Year!

Sarah (the other me.)

We have some of our best conversations late at night! Something about being between the worlds... and my boys really bond during that time. That's another reason i'm sooo grateful for homeschooling - the hours! :)

Enjoy those moments - they're precious. As my friend would say, "You can sleep when they move out." :)
