Growing up fast!

Sometimes I forget that my children are not babies anymore... Take today for instance...

One of BigGirl's best school friends had a bowling party for her birthday. It was so hilarious to watch all the little 5 and 6 year olds carrying those big ole balls around! BigGirl had never bowled before, but she actually threw one (accidental) strike and came in 2nd on her lane. After that, she and 2 other girls went to a movie and home with the birthday girl for a slumber party. This is her first slumber party and she was SO excited. I on the other hand, was NOT so excited! You just never know how they will behave at someone else's house, with so many little girls and the drama that brings. I know she is a good kid, but she definitely has her share of drama! I did OK until about 8pm when I started wondering what they were doing, was she remembering her manners, were they all getting along, etc... The birthday girl is one that was in BigGirl's class last year, they take gymnastics together, and her mom is also a teacher at our school, so they play together every afternoon during the school year. They do NOT always get along- both are the oldest child, and the other girl gets her feelings hurt at nothing. I'm glad there are 2 others there tonight to buffer these 2! I'm not looking forward to the slumber party hangover tomorrow, either...

BabyGirl loves all the attention she gets when her sister is away She DEMANDED that we had to eat Mexican tonight (2nd time this week, but I'm not counting) and loved getting all the attention from all the little workers there. She said to one of the guys when we were leaving, "[Leo]Nardo, can I work wiff you when I grow up?" B's answer~ NO, you cannot~ we grabbed some gum and got out of there!! She is SO funny sometimes. Yesterday we went to see B at the bank... She picked up one of his business cards from his desk and said, "Daddy, is dis a gift card??" Then she tried to *swipe* it through his adding machine. She is 3~ she knows TOO much!

I used to love slumber parties! And I know what you mean by slumber party hangover. Mom and kids are tired for a few days. Hope all went well!

Kids are soooo cute with what they will come up and say, and so much smarter than I give them credit for!

We haven't gotten to slumber parties yet, but I know they are in my future!
