This girl is going to be 4 in a couple weeks! She is quite a piece of work. I will be doing a lot of Teagen blogging in the days leading up to her b-day.
Oh lets see, Summer was invited to a birthday party last Saturday. We encountered a situation of interest. She was invited by a boy. Who has a twin sister in the same class. So it was a joint party, but the boy invited Summer. I felt confused, because the mother made it clear that gifts were only to be brought to the child who invited my child. But it just seemed strange that Summer was not getting her "girl" friend a gift. I have to say that if Summer was a boy, I would not have had the same concerns. And of course, my concerns were completely unwarranted. Social stuff is like no sweat to Summer, that's all me. She was thrilled with her spiderman goodie bag, and ate the "girl" HSM cake instead of the "boy" spider man cake. Just another lesson for me in worry 101. Someone tell me to chill...
For Rachael's birthday, I was supposed to watch her kids so she could go to the casino with Gary and her friends. But then our folks were going too. And Rachael got really sad that we couldn't go. And Jason was supposed to go fishing with Ian, but he had to work. So Jason was sad. To make a very long story short, we got Jason's step sister Johanna to watch our kids(1st time we have ever paid a sitter) and we went too! I am not a big fan of the casino, but I did play for 45 minutes on $5, so that's cool.
My Aunt Julie is going to love this....I broke down and bought a Wii. I just told her last week that I was not going to do it, but I got it for $199(Thanks Jodi) And Summer paid half. It is really fun(DUH). The kids crack me up. All Teagen wants to do is make more Miis! And Grady laughs so hard at the funny faces. Its just what we needed to get through these last several weeks of cruddy weather. On Sunday, Rach and Gary and the kids were over and the grownups played The Price is Right. Very silly business.
Summer Valentines party is today. I do not recommend waiting until 8pm the night before to assemble store bought valentines. Not cool, people. Not cool.
Other than that, I started this week on the floor at the big "S". First I had to complete 22 hours of training sitting in a room at a computer. Ouch. I am just a cashier, for crying out loud. Monday I worked with a girl who went to Whitehall(class of 08) And got an earful. I know all schools are different since I was in school, but I just can't imagine WHS being so horrible. The drug use is out of control as are the pregnancy rates. The stories coming out of the mouth of this little cheerleader(with a baby) are like nothing I have ever imagined. I am moving to Amish country. I guess I don't feel so bad living in the city(for now) anymore.
Anyway, tonight is my second night, so we'll see if its better. And if I learn something of use to me in the store as opposed to high school life.
I want to send BIG congrats to my girl Marie and her hubby Ryan on their new baby girl!!! Yea! Welcome baby Kate:) I can't wait to meet her.
And I leave with a pic of Grady trying to hide from me.I think that it will at least make ya smile, if not laugh out loud....
