Today is the first day of May. And while I am NOT loving the forecast (Mother Nature is back on the sauce), I am loving other things.
Two things, to be exact.
Button: The B-day girl!
Today is Button's 10th birthday! I cannot believe she's in the double digits now. Yikes.
I love this kid. She's got a heart of gold and almost always has a smile on her face.
We are surprising her after school today by taking her to get her ears pierced! She's never had them done. Come to think of it, she's never even brought it up.
After we get her ears pierced, we will go get Peanut and head to dinner, Button's choice. (I bet we end up at the Cheesecake Factory. She loves it there.)
And then we will come home to eat rainbow cupcakes with chocolate chip fudge frosting that I made last night.
Oh, and she will get that yo-yo that she wanted. LOL.
I don't think my life will ever be dull with this girl around. She is never boring.
No matter what my day is like, I know that hanging around Peanut will always make me feel better. If nothing else, I will spend the time laughing at what she comes up with at any given moment.
At only 7 years old, she has more personality than most people twice her age.
And she's so smart sometimes, she scares me.
But it's a good kind of scary.
I don't know what my life would be like if not for having these girls. I got so lucky that I found my husband when I did and was introduced to these loving little nutballs.
I may not have birthed them, but I love them has if they were my own.
