My baby girl is seven!
I can hardly believe I am the Mom of a seven year old. She is beautiful, smart and a joy to be around. Times like this make me so glad we are homeschooling. It is wonderful to get to spend every day with her. It goes by so quickly and I would be missing a huge chunk of her life if she went to school every day for the next 11 years. :) Which brings me to my next task that this year we will have to start our record keeping for her. That is ok because it actually helps me be more aware of what we are doing and keeps me on task.
For her birthday this year she wanted to have a sleepover. At first she had a big list of girls, but I asked her to narrow it down to 1-2 girls. So she did. We met my friend Jill and her family to swim. It was a blast. Then I took the two girls home for the sleep over. It went really well. Later in the day my kids were grumpy and tired from staying up so late. I told Gioia she was like her Aunt Mel. I remember my sister (who always needed her sleep) being a total crab anytime she went to a sleepover. That same sister is now pregnant, so watch out world when she is a sleep deprived new mom. HA HA!!! (Don't worry sis, I will be MORE than happy to come hold your baby while you nap!)
