Happy Birthday Dear Sophie….

posted Thursday May 21st, 2009


And happy birthday to me, too.

I’ve long maintained that the mom deserves a birthday gift, too. After all, it wasn’t Sophie who was running around town with a bath towel shoved between her legs, six years ago this morning. (Sorry — TMI.)

So here’s my gift to myself. What do you think? I feel a little self conscious — okay, a lot self conscious, with such a beautiful web site (designed by New Amsterdam Consulting) but I figure that even if I don’t deserve it, Sophie does. And so do the readers who’ve put up with my way-too-DIY blog for the last year.

It will take me a while to get used to this new site — I still have some bells and whistles to learn, I just realized I still can’t size a photo. But I promise, I’ll learn. Just not right now. Right now I have to go, I have to get back over to the school. Sophie’s there. She woke up this morning in her Tinkerbell birthday PJs from Ms. X, acting as though she’d never been sick. It’s her birthday and the last day of kindergarten. (And, for that matter, the last day of second grade.)

As I wrote on Facebook this morning, I don’t think there’s enough Kleenex in the world to sop up this day.

  7. Hi! I’ve been reading your blog for about 3 months now–commented once or twice, but am just realizing it is probably rude of me not to make a formal hello! :) So Hi! I am so glad you are going to keep blogging. I came in late in the game (though I read back the entire year’s worth of posts) and I am happy it’s not coming to an end now that I have become an addict. Your kids are so beautiful!

    Feel free to stop by my blog sometime. I, too, am a mom to a pretty cool kiddo with DS and another little boy as well.


  8. Happy Birthday! and happy new blog! Looks great.
