Not cute in either picture. But I am sure she was Ellen's BFF.

I'm always one for a good doppleganger (clearly I posted 2 in one day). Today Andy pointed out his likeness to Peterman on Seinfeld - how did I never catch this before?????
Welcome to the team! We are lucky to have you. Peterman was the most likeable minor character. The good news is your role will be anything but minor!!

The girls had their first visit to a Tiffany store this weekend for a gift pick up. CEM was most enamored with the white ribbons used for wrapping up the box. Using her charm she convinced the sales-guy to give her some ribbon to make a finger ninja.
Their first visit a memory making success when the ribbon was taller than REM (no joy to be shared on a vehicle purchase, but we all did fall in love with the Electric Tesla)
She entertained us all with a inch of the ribbon.
In other news, she dressed in sports attire today. When I asked her if anyone made fun of her casual look she declared no very boldly (and very matter of fact) with an explanation that her friends would never tell her that - they would talk about it behind her back. Yes, she is in fact smarter then the rest of us. Wish my ten year old self would have known this.

After the race I sent everyone to shower before me. This meant that in order to have hot water I didn't get into the shower until after midnight.when I got out of the shower Tarzan said, "I think one of the girls is calling you". The only reason I made an effort to investigate was MJM had gone to bed sick after a series of vomiting (at the race, at the restaurant, in the car. All of the reasons one loves being a mother)What I instead found was the two second born in a full fledged freak out. "Don't move!!!! Look up, look up".
Oh dear (caution spiders may appear bigger in real life). "ASH"
And he saves the day (and he loves me more than life that he agreed to a half dressed just out of the shower pic to be posted.
What is missing here is a series of Tarzan climbing on a chair and throwing his shoe and the ceiling (multiple times). No photos were taken because all of the second borns were hysterically laughing.
Time of death 1222 am
And now I need the gift of having the shoe print cleaned off the ceiling.
Apparently this balloon bigger than my head was being put into place last night which is why I had two girls in the kitchen. (No I am not obsessing but please note the shoe print boldly saying hi behind the gift)
I had the best childhood, and have had an outstanding journey growing up with this amazing woman.
I lucky to have her as a role model, best friend and mom. My children are so blessed to have her as their grandmother.
A great day to celebrate her. I love you Mom!!!

Spent the majority of the day with the brilliant 5th grader. First the field trip to the Halle Heart Museum (quickly, quickly) where in addition to learning all about the heart I learned how to play tennis (basically its just an excuse for children to beat each others hands to a red pulp), that a giraffes heart is 23 pounds and that my dress looked like a picnic blanket.
Followed by the two innovative 5th grade bff's adapting her dress and performing in an amazing band concert.
