Fake Birthday

So today was my daughter's "fake" birthday.  What do you do when your daughter's birthday is the week of your business trip? Her "real" birthday is the 25th.  Luckily this year she can't read a calendar so we pulled it off fabulous.  On Friday, her teachers happily celebrated her day early for me so I could bring in the snack and I even read my new book (Mommy's High Heel Shoes) to her class which was adorable.  I picked her up from school and we had a special mommy/daughter shopping trip.  We ran to the grocery store to get last minute things for her birthday party, picked out tinkerbelle plates and went to buy her soccer cleats.  She wore her birthday tiara the whole time smiling from ear to ear as strangers wished her a happy birthday.

So here is my little girl just a day old- almost 4 years ago.  How does the time fly by so quickly?  She is still my snuggly buddy and sweet girl, but everyday she is getting so grown up.  Sometimes I get all teared up looking at these pictures.  I've also recently gone through some of the baby clothes and have given some to friends.  For some reason, I can't give them all away. 

So I feel good about making her birthday a special one, even though we did it a few days early.  I think her real birthday is going to be harder for me.  Maybe I'll put my calendar away this week.....

Honest Tea....better than a fortune cookie!

So once a week our family goes out to our favorite Pizza Place.  And once a week I look forward to getting my inspiration from a bottle of Honest Tea.  Honest tea is more fun and inspirational than a fortune cookie, honest!!   You see, on every lid there are words of wisdom.  Tonight my lid read, "Vision without action is a daydream; action without vision is a nightmare." - Japanese Proverb.

leaps of faith

I am up way too late again, but thought I would quick post a wonderful quote a friend sent me.
Now while this quote doesn't apply to everything in my life (like my marriage or riding a bike)
It's just wonderful to take leaps of faith and risks in our lives to keep them fun and exciting!

Making your child feel special

So I have been working my full time sales job all day and prepping for the launch of my new book all night. Sometimes, I find it very hard to slow down and relax. I really try hard to ignore all work from the time I get home until the time the kids go to sleep so I can give undivided attention to the kids, but it doesn't always happen. This article on babycenter came across my e-mail the other day. It reminded me of how important it is to make my kids feel special in this busy world we all live in!!!
