Heard At My House

Dorie: Mom, I know what "cousins" means.

Me: Oh?

Dorie: "Cousins" means "the friends you love the most."

I LOVE the letter E!!

And today, I got to see lots of them...

Dorie's report card was full of E's (as in "Excellent")!! She even got a Pass for Spanish! Her teacher said so many wonderful things about her. I was thrilled to hear how well she is doing academically. To know that she is not being held back by her limited English proficiency just made my heart soar. To hear that she is compassionate and polite and obedient got me a little choked up.

My heart is full today. I am one proud mama!

I'm really a mom...

Today I'm feeling like a real mom. Not that I don't feel like a mom on most days, but there are certain events that make you feel truly legitimate. Today is one. I get to go to my first teacher-parent conference.
I've been on the "teacher" side so many times...but I've never been on the "parent" side. I'm excited. Like really excited. Kinda feels like Christmas.

Last Call...

We are in process to finalize Dorie's adoption here in the U.S. and it would sure help to sell a few more shirts. Plus, they're so cute...especially now that I know who that little girl is! Could make a great Christmas gift.

$15 per shirt if hand-delivered
+$5 if shipped

Last day to take orders will be
Friday, December 3!
Guaranteed for Christmas if you order by Friday, November 26.

The most popular color choices are light pink or gray, but other colors are available too. Just email me if you have a particular color in mind. All women's sizes available...I'm looking into children's sizes, too.

Heard At My House

After school on Monday...

Dorie: Mom, you have to vomit.
Me: I have to what?
Dorie: Vomit. You have to, Mom!
Me: I don't know what you're talking about, Dorie.
Dorie: At my school they tell me to tell my mom to vomit on Tuesday.
Me: Um...I think you mean I'm supposed to vote on Tuesday.
Dorie: Oh.

Just a sidenote: After California's results, I wanted to vomit. Maybe my sweet girl has the gift of prophesy???
