Monkey is 5!!


i can't believe that my baby is 5 today. seems like yesterday we were racing around to get to the hospital to be induced. ah! glad that's over! :)


monkey is such a great kid. he has a wonderful sense of humor and is sooo smart! he loves legos, blocks and his brother. he is a scooby-doo fanatic but he loves books as well. he knows all of his letters and numbers and is trying to put them together to make words. people always tell me how much fun he is to be around. and they are right!! it's never a dull moment when monkey's there! his imagination astounds me! he loves to draw, color and create things with various and assorted junk he finds around the house!

monkey is the joy that helps glue our family together!!

happy birthday monkey! i love you!

glad you are back!

happy birthday monkey.

btw- the dick and jane books are sold at walmart. my teacher friend told me they have most of the 100 sight words they teach in school.both my girls learned to read with them -- we got the collection book -- ten bucks -- starts out super easy and gradually gets harder.

as much as we mocked those books as kids, they worked! my girls were so excited to read those goofy, "funny, funny Jane" stories.

aw man, that made me cry. i love monkey. funny how he and Big C are so different but both so wonderful. and the way they both love each other so much is fun to watch too. did we ever get along like that?

Woe. I remember being 5. Well, not so much. But I remember that I used to think back to when I was 5. Like right now! Happy Birthday!

Happy Belated 5th Birthday to Monkey. I hope it was a good one.

Kay, I'm glad you are feeling better. We have been out of town for almost a week. Just got home Tuesday night.

Hope everything is going better for you Kay. I had no idea about the panic attacks. I have had some friends that used to get those, and I can only imagine how scary that must be. ((((Hugs))))

I just got "It's the End of the World" REM, and I don't remember all the words!

I stopped by because I seriously think the music I get when I pop on represents my current state of mind.

How are you? Did you do what I did and celebrate your little one's b-day for week? He sure is a cute one!
