My photo
Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Train them Early

Saturday night:
Friends over. Everyone brought their kids. I am not sure who was louder, the adults over the wine, margarita's and beer that was flowing or the kids running amuck and playing tag in the house. All the adults were chatting, giggling, swapping stories about our week until cherub 2 sauntered through the room with a cup of water and exclaimed, "I am drinking a beer!" You could hear a pindrop after that for a few seconds, we all looked at each other and then we all started howling. Clearly he is catching on to what the adults do during our 'get togethers'.

After a long day of over-tired parents and children (remember, we were all up late either drinking beer/wine or pretending to), hubby suggested after dinner we play the name game. So there we were teaching our kids how to play the name game (minus the alcoholic beverages we used to play with in college). Yes, we are training them early. They will succeed both academically and socially. I am so proud.
