7th birthday

this morning, on the occasion of buddy's 7th birthday.

It's hard to settle on a few words to describe Buddy. One of the first things I always think of is brave. She's so brave. She plows forward into life, up trees, into the deep end, into friendships with gusto. She's also very funny. She loves to tell jokes and she's been getting the giggles a lot lately. She takes after her dad in that she is so athletic. She is an American Ninja Warrior! She takes after me in that she loves to talk and make people laugh. She's 7!

haiku friday

when its hot outside,
the kids play in the sprinklers
and the blow up pool.

we sit in the back,
watching them play and loving
having a backyard.

buddy climbs the tree,
all the way to the top now.
it's her play structure.

First Day, Last Day, First Grade

First day on the left, last day on the right. 

Look at the tiniest best friend anyone could ever have! I love her so much. She looks so confidant and happy in the right hand picture. Nothing phases Buddy, she is outspoken and brave. In the first grade she learned a lot about different types of animals, and the earth and the solar system. She learned a whole lot of math and reading. She learned how to play with a bunch of people instead of just one at a time. She made a lot of friends. She ate all kinds of different school lunches. She loves her teacher so much. Man. First grade was the best.

June is such a nice month in our house. We get to celebrate two birthdays. 

 Her nanny had a party for her today that I didn't get to go to because I had a meeting. Oh, work. 

Speaking of, it's so crazy to be a working mom. You feel me, right? Always always always multi tasking? Thank god for lots of help. 
These two kids. I love them.

Joze had her two year check up yesterday! She is 98th percentile in weight and off the charts in height. Here are her stats compared to Buddy at the same age. She's 10% taller and a quarter heavier. HEEHEE she's such a little slip of a thing. I love her so much.

  1. Dude! So. I went 10,000 steps a day every day in 2017 until yesterday. Don't think I'm not super bummed about it. Unfortunately, the saga of my boobs continues and I had to have an MRI biopsy on both sides and the doctor was like hell no you can't walk woman. And I was like COME ON 10,000 steps man. And they were like no. Sorry. So I didn't. 
  2. I'm also not going to get 10,000 steps today. I am so bummed but you know what? I had a good run. I'm also going to try to make up these steps this weekend. So, if you see me walking roll down your window and wave!
  3. I've been so much better about drinking water at my new job. I have just made it a priority. 
  4. I've been so so about getting to sleep earlier. And drinking less wine. And I don't think I did any political action in May. I did call Auntie Maxine, but I think that might have been in April? Anyways, onwards and upwards people!!
