Mid Week Randomness.

-Last night one of my besties, Raven, gave birth to her second beautiful child - baby girl Emi. She is precious and beautiful and sweet and so tiny. She was so soft and smelled so good. I could have held her all night, but I knew I needed to share. I might not like to share, but I knew I needed to. Raven is one of the most patient and loving people I know. She is THE best mommy to her babies. She was made to be a mommy. 
-This afternoon we had parent observations during Morgan Kate's dance class. Love, love, love. Seeing my girl in her little "dance get-up" and moving all around just puts the biggest smile on my face. My stressful day at work was immediately forgotten the minute I saw her. I think I've mentioned this before, but Roddey is also Morgan Kate's dance teacher and she is THE best. We are just so, so blessed to have Roddey in our lives. Morgan Kate's class is a combination class of tap and ballet. I think it's perfect for that age because they like "change" and frequent change. They are able to tap for a while and then do some ballet and vice versa. I think it's also great because at this age they can really discover what they like and which type they prefer. I think MK loves both, but she talks a lot about ballet. 
-I have lots of things and lots of people on my mind right now. People I'm concerned about. People I love. People who mean the world to me. I try to find the right things to pray for and pray about. I try to be a listener and not a fixer. I try to be patient and optimistic and level headed. Some days all of that works out and some days all of that is a total mess, which in turn means I'm a total mess. 

-Tomorrow is parent-teacher conference day at Morgan Kate's school. I'm anxious to hear what her teachers have to say. I asked MK what they might tell me and she said, "Mommy, they are going to tell you that the girls always clean up and that I'm a really good cleaner. I'm also a good listener and I'm kind." 

-This past weekend we were hungry for lunch and decided to make our own personal pizzas. MK thought it was the greatest idea ever. And she did really good with it. We may have put on all the toppings, including cheese and then remembered we hadn't put the pizza sauce on and had to add it at the last minute, but they turned out delish!  
I love the holidays and decorating and shopping, but my mind just cannot wrap it's self around the fact that the holidays are NOW. Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is like in forty something days. What?!?
