Random coloring

Gabriella is so talented. She loves coloring and did this beautiful picture (below) that I printed from the internet.

Molly's responsibilities...

Well my girl Molly is 9 years old and she's officially a big girl! We have entrusted her with the responsibility of caring for Gabriella in the following ways: making sure she's dressed, making sure they both eat breakfast, and walking herself and Gabriella to school in the morning. This will all take place this fall for their new school Jenks.

This is quite a responsibility for Molly but I know that she can handle it. She is memorizing our numbers (home, cell, mom cell) as we speak. She's a very good students and the walk to school is only 2 blocks away. There is an easing in. Which I will walk both of them to school in the morning...and then we moved to Levittown.

Both of us...

My Quentin is so cute! He told me that I can't have one and he can't have one but both of us can have one. I forgot what we were talking about but it doesn't matter. The fact that his vocabulary is expanding is astounding, amazing, and exciting!

The Adventures of Gabriella

How creative my girl can be. After school she tends to get a little bit silly because she's so exhausted. Well this  just about tops the silliness for the week when she decided to put her socks on top of her shoes.
As you notice in the pictures below, she spares no expense. The funny thing is she didn't even expect anyone to notice.


Its tough to tell the Hasty Kids no. As soon as I do they begin petitioning for what they want. It's amazing to watch but stressing out the same time. They're so determined/stubborn and focused on the greater good (i.e. what they really want).

When I started to blog this had a specific example. Since then if has been forgotten. Part two will follow one day...

Gabrielle is all grown up now...

Recently Eileen straightened Gabriella's extra curly hair. Immediately I grew with great dislike. To see my girl growing up so quickly with the straightening of her hair shocked me. 

After surveying a few of my male friends, I was contented to know they share the same sentiments. However, she is 4, it is the same hair (just in a different style) and she is no where near the phase of dating.

Thank God for that!

You are not forgotten! Lucky #3

Dear Quentin,

When you demand the iPod, demand to watch Shrek, demand a taffy at 8 am, or scream louder or more annoying than Gabriella, I hear you.

The fact of the matter is, I am attentive to you regardless of what you're doing. Take your time to be patient with me and your sisters. Learn as much as you can about taking care of yourself and then your family. I am still learning myself.

Love you always,
