Cooking “bigger” than you need to is awesome because then you get leftovers and don’t have to cook later. (As an aside, I am totally patting myself on the back for everything I had prepared and stashed in my freezer.)
Twitter friends are amazing…the support, friendship and professional contacts I have made there are invaluable.
I’ve learned that if I do not immediately write about something, the odds are that it will indeed NOT get written about. (If there was a lazy blogger award I would totally win it.)
Watching Cielo and Junior kiss Diego without prompting warms my heart. I also cannot believe how quickly they adapted to their new baby brother, they are always trying to help with the baby. They are super protective already and can’t stop talking about how cute he is.
Miracles DO happen…my daughter has not willingly sat for a portrait photo in over 2 years. I have a few pictures of her in tears and with red eyes to show her later…but now I am waiting for Sept 9 so I can pick up our family pictures. She is smiling and posing in these pictures. I am SO EXCITED. All those candles I lit were TOTALLY WORTH IT! (Ok I’m kidding, I’m a lapsed Catholic so no actual candles were lit in the name of photography.)
Professional organizations CAN be involved with their members. I received a care package in the mail from CASLPA after Diego’s birth. There was something in there for everyone in my family.
Junior claimed the CASLPA brochure that came in the package. I think my son is going to be a Speech Pathologist…this brings me great joy!
