I love all of my girls infinitely and equally, but this one sure is full of spunk. We end up hanging out together, the two of us, on the way to, and from, and in between getting her older sisters to their various athletic, social and other activities.
But we have fun. We we do lots of things. Like:
And hug trees.
And even, you guessed it.....
fall on our asses.
But even after spending about half of her time on the ground during her inaugural trip to ice rink this weekend, she's still both thumbs up.
Once upon a glass or twelve of wine, Jacquie and Beth and Ellie got to talking. We decided that we were all enormously smart and clever and hilarious, and that it would be a crime not to share our unique talents with the world. We decided to start a blog together.
We needed a name, so Jacquie asked Beth: “What should we call a blog about meand you and Ellie?” And the rest, as they say, is history. We are having a blast writing this thing, and if there was any trepidation that we were only smart and clever and hilarious that night because of all the wine, our words here thus far have succinctly affirmed our mutual self-admiration.
