There's been a lot of excitement here. My daughter turned 8 yesterday! We had a great party for her over the weekend. Seven was a pretty fantastic age, but I think eight will be even better!
I often think that mothering has aged me. I have wrinkles in places I didn't think was possible! Gray hairs are coming in with scary regularity.
It's easy to blame my daughter for this, but the truth is, a lot of time has passed since I've had her. I think it's simply a function of the passing years and not the stress she gives me!
I still can't believe my daughter is turning eight. She was just a baby yesterday!
Anyway, in the spirit of my blog, I'm going to share a funny story that happened on the last day she was 7.
She was telling me about the amount of money she hopes to earn as an adult. She'd like to earn $100 million a year. I told her that was a lot of money. Would she share any of it with her father and me? She said, "Of course! I'd give you two $100/year." When I expressed shock that's what we were getting, she said, "What? That's a LOT of money!" LOL
Happy birthday my dear! The laughter you provide me will always keep me young!
