ben has decided he wants a werewolf / coyote birthday party (in december). not my dream theme by any means. i don't want his little friends to be scared!! why not monster trucks or dinos or something like that, kid? & this is announced after most of the halloween stuff is gone from stores. so, now this momma will be racking her brain for a cake that is werewolfie/coyotish i guess. i think i might be able to do something like this if it is to his liking. oh the things we do for our kids.
& miss grace today... i gave them both some "busy work" to do while i vacuumed. well... she decided to get her scissors & style some of her stuffed animals' hair as well as her own. she know has hangs. it's really not that bad, but when ben ran to tell me i was a bit scared. in the morning her hair is like a rat's nest, so when i touched it i was terrified at the huge clump that came out. scissors are now up higher & a lesson learned.
& a happy happy birthday to my dear cousin janet. you have always been my role model, from when i was little watching you cheer, your kindness & caring for others, to your loving ways with your child & family. thank you for always letting me be a part of your life, even when i was an annoying little kid. i love you. so much janet. happy birthday!
