The Seven Years of Mommyblogging and Happy Everything!

September 2008

Almost 3 years ago, I watched my oldest daughter leave the house, for the first time, as a freshman in high school and I thought to myself...PHEW!...1 down and 3 to go!

Heather's 8th Grade Formal 2010Heather's 8th Grade Formal 

This year, Heather (she's my middle girl) celebrated her last year of middle school by attending the 8th grade formal.

Garth [not his real name] and GlenGlen's 5th Grade Graduation

Glen (my only son) graduated 5th grade and is officially now the 3rd Thompson to hit the middle school...in 5 years.

Hope's 9th Birthday 2010

Happy 9th Birthday, Hopey

Aaaand, my youngest daughter just celebrated her last year, before hitting double-digits and was SO excited during her 4th grade orientation, knowing that her sisters and brother attended the same school, and happily admitted to her future new principal, "Nope, I'm the LAST one!"

Happy Everything!

What?  I forgot to get the candle and 8 + 1 = 9, right?

The cake was supposed to say, "Happy Everything!" but, I didn't bust my husband's chops about it (see caption) honestly, I was just too busy stumbling around...feeling all dazed and confused...okay, it's been like that for the last 7 years...but, I am STILL blogging...there, I said it, can I go home now?

Happy Birthday To Me 2010!
As you can see, it is written all over my face (the years, since I started blogging, I mean) still, I can't help but feel that with all these changes (the aforementioned happening ALL in the same week, btw) I have reached a milestone, of my own.

Heather's Graduation 2010
No, it hasn't gotten any easier (nuh-uh, sorry!) but, at least now my kids are now old enough to realize that...nope...life isn't always perfect (I know, act surprised anyway!) however, as their mother (yes, they are ALL mine) I have also learned to embrace those imperfections (mostly) and I truly believe we are ALL stronger for it.

At least, they seem to be more than okay with it.

Happy Everything!!!
