Cole's growing. Noticed that he's outgrown 4 pairs of his pants. Can't believe he's in his 8th year! And he already acts like a stinky teenager sometimes (meaning, I'm not the center of his world....sad.)
Dayne trying to desribe a girl in the gym daycare to me:
"Mom, she's like a big girl"
me: "Oh, that's nice"
Dayne: "No, like a big woman."
me: "Is she an older woman, Dayne?"
Dayne: "No, like a bigger woman girl"
Finally, Cole: "Mom, she's like an 11 or 12 yr. old".
Me: "Oh, like a teenager?"
I'm not very good at helping my kids express themselves. It's always been a challenge for me too, kids. Sorry.
The girls joined Geof. and I on a "date" to do one of Geof.'s appraisal appts down in Emporia, VA. It was a little over an hour and a half south of us close to the N. Carolina border. I've never been to N. Carolina. Always wanted to go. At one point, I wanted to live there. Anyway, the house was absolutely perfect. Big porch, back porch, hardwood floors, huge windows, backed up to a park. Perfect. And only $78,000. I want that house. Geof. says you can have the greatest house, but it won't change the neighborhood. Yes, it was a bad neighborhood. And, a tiny town with little to no industry. sad.
