IT'S SO HARD!

I've forgotten how hard it is to be almost 18 years old. I mean really, EVERYONE else is SOOOOOOOOOO STUPID. It is excruciating to have to deal with all these people who are so much older and dumber. It is so difficult to rely on your parents for money, food, clothing, a car. To have someone care about how much sleep I get, how healthy I eat, the language I use and how good my grades are is absolutely ridiculous. After all, I'm practically an adult.
I know these are the thoughts that run through my child's head. It makes me laugh and makes me sad. I know it is a faze and that one day he will be the parent. =D Until this passes. I vow to continue to love, care and provide for him.
Oh, the joys of motherhood.

HOMECOMING

Homecoming mums! Texas tradition. So I have yet to make one for Alex, but I've always wanted to try. Well, today I got my chance. A friend of mine called and said that Hobby Lobby had stopped taking orders and did I know anyone who could make one. I said we could.
We went to Hobby Lobby today and bought all the goodies: backer boards, shiny ribbon, black ribbon, sparkley ribbon, maroon ribbon, polka dot ribbon, leopard ribbon oh and a mum! We shopped for an hour and one hour after that VIOLA!



Not too shabby for a first effort!
