So call me a little defensive??

Emily informs Madisyn and I this morning that a boy in her class keeps pushing her down, I ask which boy?? She says, " Cain!" Now I volunteer in her class and know this isn't even a little boy, the boy looks like he could be in 3rd grade!!

So the good mom I am says, "Well push him back!!"

Emily then informs me, " Mom, I can't do that then I'll go to yellow."

So the even better mom in me says, "Tell him to stop it or that your Mom will push him back then!!"

Emily then looks at me and says," That would be freaky Mom!!"

And then Maddy chimes in, "I can see it now one of my friends will say,"

" Maddy isn't that your Mom who just pushed down a little boy??"

Maddy then continues to say, "I'll say who? I've never seen her before in my life!!"

So I guess I'll leave the disciplining to the school!! What can I say, I can't stand to see bullies pick on kids, especially when its my kid!!

Ashley Paige

Happy Birthday Ashley Paige!! It's so weird to think that 15 years ago I was in the hospital having you, where have the years gone?? It seems like just yesterday that you were the bouncy curly haired girl playing with barbies. I want you to know that I am very proud of the young woman that your turning into, and though it makes me sad that my baby is 15, I'm also very excited because each passing year I'm also gaining a best friend! I sure do cherish all of our long talks and our shopping trips and look forward to a lifetime filled with those!!

Hannah's favorite T.V. show right now is Sponge Bob Square Pants, I know very educational right?? At the moment she is pretty obsessed with it and would watch it twenty four seven if I'd let her!!

So those of you not familiar with the show Sponge Bob has a pet snail named Gary that thinks he's a cat. So after 11 years Hannah decides that our cat O'malley needs a new name any guesses as to what that new name is?? Here is mine and Hannah's conversation today:

Hannah, "Omalley's name Gary??"
I say, " You want to call O'malley, Gary?"
Hannah, " Yes call him Gary!!"

So starting at that moment Hannah started calling O'malley "Gary" when her her Daddy wakes up she informs him that O'malley's new name is "Gary"!!

When the girls get home she also informs them as well!

Every time Hannah sees our cat now she says, " Oooh look at Gary, Oooh Gary's so cute, Hi Gary."

So the next time you see me I might have a new name too, maybe Patrick, Sandy, Crusty Crab, Squidward or Plankton???
