It's been awhile...

S. turned 5!!!!

I can hardly believe my sweet little girl is 5! Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday, she was a newborn. If I close my eyes, I can still smell that sweet new-baby scent and remember how very special it was to hold her close and just breathe in that baby essence. I didn't understand why I was cursed with an extra-keen sense of smell while pregnant and enduring horrible 6 month long morning sickness until I held her in my arms. I knew from the day she was born, that if nothing else, I could always identify her by smell. Now we're gearing up for Kindergarten. Pre-registration is done; we've researched and requested a particular K teacher and we even have a nifty new backpack.

She is totally cracking me up lately. She is absolutely certain she is going to marry this boy who was in her daycare class the first 4 years of her life. It's to the point that when we went to the gem and mineral show this weekend, she announced that the ring she was given was going to be his wedding ring. Such a funny girl.

L. is accident prone

Poor little L. has had a hard time. She fell on her face at daycare a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, she landed just so that her top front left tooth was jammed back up into her gum. It will be some time before we know if this accident damaged the permanent tooth behind it. The baby tooth is working its way back down, but she does look kind of snaggle-toothed.

She's also got a bite mark on her forehead. I really don't know how one of her classmates managed to get a grip there. Some kind of talent.

Sigh...

You ever find yourself in a situation where you think you might be getting something, but you're not sure you actually want it, but when you find out you're not getting it after all, you're terribly disappointed?

Happy Birthday S. and poort L! And as for your last question, I fear that will happen when I run to be a judge next year. I'm doing it, but I'm not certain that it's what I want, and I'm fairly sure that if I don't get it I'll be disappointed. What's going on w/ you?
