Wednesday, September 24, 2008


The following CNN breaking news alert just came over my Blackberry:

"John McCain suspends campaigning to work on economy, requests postponing Friday debate; asks Obama do the same."

Well, well, well. Perhaps someone is throwing in the towel? One can only hope.

On Sunday September 14, Baby-bee turned 3 1/2. She also wrote her name for the very first time. She is growing up. From now on, we will refer to her as "Little Bee", and we couldnt be more proud of her.

We must be doing something right.

Another reason to LOVE the internet!

Everybody goes on the potty. I tell this to Baby-Bee EVERYDAY hoping that one day it sinks in. But where? Now there is a source to lead you to the right public potty for your needs. Whether you are walking through DC or Guam, this site is for you!

Lunch and PE

Yesterday was Ms. Beans first day of Kindergarten.

1) For lunch, she had Chicken Nuggets, a Biscuit, Peaches and CHocolate Milk.
2) In P.E., she learned to make shapes with Ribbons

The above is all of the information that I could get out of her. Clearly, she is a normal child.

End of Summer Party

This past Sunday, everyone was in a small funk. Summer was ending, school/work were beginning, and soon we would need to fall into a "routine" which we had all learned to "ignore". Ms. Bean, perhaps sensing our depression, decided to cheer us up, by throwing our neighborhood a party!

First she carefully planned the menu, Egg Salad and Strawberries.

Then she made of list of everyone to invite.

Since there was no time to get our invitations (the party was less then 24 hours away), she went to the pool with her list of invitees and gave them all the details. Those that she couldn't find she called.

She sent her Dad to the store for some last minute items.

She cooked well into the night and the next morning.

Susie helped her cut blocks of cheese and mix lemonade.

And, by Monday at 11:00, we were all pool side, enjoying our sandwiches and each other.

When I was 5, a Lemonade Stand seemed like a nice way to celebrate the end of Summer. Everyone would enjoy a sweet treat and I would make a few nickles for my bank. Ms. Bean's kindness, enthusiasm and generosity have far exceeded anything I could have come up with. Can't WAIT to see what she pulls off then she's 6.
