Happy birthday – sorta!

Happy Birthday!

I have trained my Princess Girl well. This morning as I was leaving for work she wished me a Happy Sorta Birthday. It is my “sorta” birthday… I get one every 4 years. And tomorrow is my actual birthday. Two full days of celebrating me every 4 years!

How does that work? Well, you see,  I was born the day after February 28th (today), but since it was a non-Leap Year I was born on March 1 (tomorrow).

I will be enjoying my two days of celebration. I hope you enjoy your Leap Day, too!

Trying to get everything planned for the trip to Cheerleading Nationals is rough. I know how to plan Disney. I can plan a trip to Disney that is structured so we don’t miss anything we want to see (sometimes twice), but with enough flexibility to be spontaneous and roll with any vacation changes we decide on. Having three days of cheer competition/team involvement that we have no experience with is leaving me at a loss on how to plan.

On top of that I am trying to plan for our spring break college visits. Again with no knowledge of those areas, timing of the things we will be doing, it’s tough.

But exciting!

Nationals! College visits! Big plans in the works… Now to figure out how to pay for it all.

More adventures in parenting

So Princess Girl attended the Sadie Hawkins dance at one of the bigger schools in our area with a friend this past Saturday. She had a great time. There were a lot of kids she knew from when we lived in that school district many years ago. There were also kids she knew from softball and other sports. And probably 10 or so kids from her own school.

The only down side? She said to me yesterday “I have never seen so many kids making out in one room in my life. It was kinda gross.”

“Well,” I told her, “That is why your school has the no kissing rules it does. A dance is supposed to be a fun party for all the kids that attend, not an excuse for a make-out session only for those kids that are on that path.”

I’m glad she finds a room full of kids trying to get to second base in public gross. I’m glad she can have fun with her friends without it having to be about who is going to be the next conquest. I’ve done my best to aim her toward being a well adjusted teen/adult. So far we are on the right track.

Can I just keep her my baby for a few more years?
