But first, some year in review stuff, and of course, the best thing of the year was the kiddo. Because she's awesome.
There was a thing I'm having trouble adjusting to, though.
She turned nine. After a week of not being able to make up her mind, at the last minute, she asked for the same cake I always make.
And, big one, SHE IS WEARING MY CLOTHES.
She finally learned to swim, thank the gods. And she started piano lessons a couple weeks ago. (Husbeast and I have been debating... is it wrong to push your kid - into band, in our case - when we're pushing them toward something FUN?)
Lately, she's been yelling "MOM, I'M HOME." every afternoon on the front walk before coming inside. I guess so the neighbors know too? Whatever, it's adorable.
Another landmark this year, though not a positive one like the others.
But yeah, the year in Goobie. She's chugging along, nothing gets her down for long. Of course, when you lead a charmed life with prescriptions for candy, life is pretty good.
Oh, and she went as Bubbles at Halloween
