Princess drama

I always thought TRMinator ruled the roost in the drama department.  Well Princess Squanner is going to give him a run for his money.

This morning was one of those mornings for the Squanner.  She was extra tired and just didn’t want to get moving.  After pushing her through breakfast and getting her dressed, she just wanted to lay on the couch under a blanket and watch TV.  Since we had a few minutes till we needed to leave I told her she could.  When it was time to go, I dragged her off the couch and made her put her shoes on.  As she was walking past me out the door, she heaved her shoulder high in the air, and with a dramatic sigh dejectedly said, “I guess this is my life now.”

Yes, pretty princess, you have joined the world of those who have to get up in the morning.  I know, it’s hard, but somehow we’ll survive.

I guess it’s true—time does fly!

TRMinator decided that he needed to have a birthday—not just any birthday either.  He decided that it was time to be teenager, so he turned 13! 


My baby boy is 13!!

How is it possible that my sweet, precious, chubby cheeked boy is now a teenager?



Seriously.  Would someone explain to me how this happened in such a short time?

Dive in!


Squanner’s first jump off the diving board.

Squanner and the G-man have been taking swimming lessons this summer.  After one of Squanner’s lessons, the teacher asked if they wanted to go off the diving board.  Without any hesitation she jumped out and went to line up on the board.  Both my boys wouldn’t go off the board till they were at least 8 or 9, and it took lots of cajoling to get them to that point.  She’s 6 and didn’t think twice.

As a side note, I asked Hubby if it would be hard to post this video on my blog.  He said no, he would throw it up there.  I should have known his version would be mixed, arranged, and produced to his standard.
