I mean really. It's only been 3 years.
How does that happen? Shaking head in wonder.
Anyway, I'm so proud of him. He is working very hard in school, and becoming a person of character. (Also, he's quite a character.)
I'm more than a little disconcerted to have to look up to talk to him.
Yordanos picked up the phone, and without breaking stride, took the phone into a different room and closed the door.
And I stood in the hall, mouth open in astonishment. And wonder. And fear. And deja vu. And I continued to stand there, looking foolish, just not believing that it's here already... that thing we girls do (or did, anyway).
The conversation sounded like this, "Hee hee hee. Yes. No WAY! Ok." And ended with, "Hey Mom, can I go to a dance?"
We went to a wedding as a family this past weekend and that may have been an expensive decision on our part. Judging by this picture, I believe someone's expectations are soaring.
No, we didn't get to ride in it, which was good because I don't think we would have gotten her out.
I suspect H will be just fine although I don't expect we won't hear much, if anything, from him until they get back. I think the only thing that would "send him over" would be being alone, and I doubt that's going to be an issue with a cabin full of boys and solid adult supervision.
Yordanos has been prancing around and singing all day. She's enjoying the attention of being the only child, though when asked directly, she says she misses her brother already. We'll see how long she appreciates being the center of attention. Knowing her though, she'll eat it up all week.
