It's almost that time of year again: Tootie Pie will be turning seven! My goodness, the time is going by so quickly. We are celebrating at a YMCA pool, so the theme will be mermaids or the sea. I will be crafting and cooking away once again, but this time I think she can help out more than in years past. We made shell invitations, and she cut out the mermaid cover and inner detail, and put on the heart and pearl, and labeled the cards. I told her to just put the name of her classmate on the envelope, but she insisted on including siblings, many of whom we do not know the names. So, some envelopes are labeled "Meghan, Riley, and other sister" - which is far more welcoming to siblings, I think you will agree. Oh, and she glittified our entire home. But, they're done, and will be distributed tomorrow.
I have crooked teeth from my parents and a wacky arm from a stroke. My daughter describes me as funny and smart, while she describes the other Linda from Mommy and Me as pretty and nice. So, I'm not pretty nor nice. I love the French people, French language (I'm fluent), French food, culture, architecture... In short, all of France! I'll read anything in front of me. I know more about middle school math than, well, anyone, INCLUDING my middle school math teacher husband (let's see if he reads this). I'm not happy if I'm not painting something.
