I'm leavin'... on a jet plane...

This 39 year old mama just turned 41.

Time keeps on tickin', people.

And you WILL NOT believe the birthday present I got 2 days ago. A TICKET. TO ATLANTA.

I'M GOING TO GEORGIA TOMORROW!!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited???

Yes, this is a good day. I'm going to bed tonight and waking up at the crack of dawn to fly out to GA to see my SISTER!!!!

Oh and THIS baby girl!

Who is actually now, THIS baby girl.

My precious niece is graduating from high school and my bigger wiser seester bought me a ticket to come celebrate.
I can't wait.

The last time I saw my sister, she was in my bedroom lounging on my sofa and making me do the ugly cry when I saw her.

This time? No ugly cry. Just JOY.

classroom giggles part 50,000

This conversation ACTUALLY happened today at school. We were in a school wide assembly and I was sitting by one of my little guys. I could eat this kid with a spoon, by the way. And he starts jibber jabbering in my ear. He's switching from topic to topic with lightning speed. Then this came out:

Cutie Patootie: I like Sundays. What's this. (Now he's pointing to something near his chin but he's covering it with the finger he's pointing with.) A pimple?

Me: (giggling internally and craning my neck to see past his finger) A pimple?

CP: Yah.

Me: Where? (trying to get him to move the stinkin' finger without coming out and saying it)

CP: Right here. (finger moves, revealing..... nothing)

Me: Oh, no! That's not a pimple.

CP: (nodding in approval of my answer) But there's a pimple on my BUTT!

Me: (nodding) HHMMMMM!

And then I turned quickly away. Because sometimes you just can't look at them if you need to keep a straight face.
