Week #4

Another week has just flown by. I have definitely been keeping busy. I just realized that I've never really specified what I am counting. If you go back to the riddle (#9) it is my prayer that we have passed court by the end of October or first week of November. That is at least another eight weeks from now.

In honor of my fourth week of my self-proclaimed twelve-week wait. Here I am in my all my four-year old glory -- March 1970. You know the family by now. The addition is my cousin Yolanda. I also added the back of the picture with one of my mom's notes.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I was what the grown folks referred to as busy. I went through a period where I always had to have on a band aid usually for some of my busy-girl antics. The little girl in dresses was my mother's vision. The picture of me in motion -- that's the real me. I said, "Open up those courts and hand over my lovelies!"

Whoa...Mr Happy almost broke a smile and Mr Head Tilt, almost didn't. But YOU, you are HAPPY! I need one of those hitting things for my kids so they'll stop hitting each other!

You weren't kidding about Mr Head Lean in EVERY picture.

I love these photos so much. They take me back to my childhood and the goofy (but cute!) pictures we have stored away somewhere.

LOL - A bobble head doll!

I'm sorry about your Mom. You can't underestimate the value of pictures. Too bad we are so digital now - I know I don't print out many of mine anymore. I'll have to start doing that when I'm a mom.

Melissa, let's hope I don't grow up too much. I went through a really rough patch with the braces and uncontrollable hair. LOL!

You are too cute! I say are because I think you've kept that little girl energy.

I love 'busy.' I've never heard that. I'm going to use that for Quinn. He's busy. Perfect.

I hope you don't get too old also.

Kristine I've told you that Quinn sounds very much like me at 5. "Busy is probably a good word".
