A glimpse into my future
Have you just wanted to take a peek into the future? Not to find out where you will be, but where your kids will be, what personalities they will take on, and see the people they choose to spend their time with?
Crazy notion, yes. There are times when I DON'T want to know who the girls will date, or who the boy will bring home to meet his mother. But then there are those times when you get a glimpse of things to come, the personalities start to shine through, and you have a pretty good idea what you are facing in the years to come.
The Monkey gave us such a glimpse this past weekend on her birthday. Decked out in a plastic tiara, matching earrings, a purple plastic necklace, and silver shoes, the Monkey went to dinner with her family. Waving like royalty, smiling when the attention was placed on her, and asking to have Happy Birthday sung to her again, I determined that she will be the next in line for the Throne of England. Or she will be her high school prom queen. Whichever comes first. My bet is that Throne.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
