    Well, I'll have to take out all mentions of her name, and, she wants to edit it, because she feels that the paper "messed it up." (apparently they inadvertantly changed a question mark to a period, which changed the meaning of the sentence.)

    Gave GS9 my college "Western Civilization(to 1500)" (NO! It was NOT 'current events' when I went to college!). You'd have thought I finally gave him a DS!

    This is a slightly different type of brag for this thread, but I'm exploding with maternal pride for my DS7: yesterday he passed the swim test at the local pool, which allowed him to go into the deep end and use the slide.

    To pass, he had to swim the front crawl continuously for 15 meters (face in the water, with breathing to the side [not front]). He's been talking going down that slide forever, and he'd been working really hard to try to pass. He failed three times in June/July and was scared of failing again, but he didn't give up.

    We all cheered for him when the lifeguard on duty said he could go get a deep-end wristband. The other lifeguards all know him and they all cheered and made a big deal of it.

    It was one of those moments, you know? I'll still be smiling about it when I'm 85.

    Do you mind if I join in?

    DD6mos used her first 2 word sentence this weekend, she signed MILK MORE. smile

    She also has been enjoying untying a bow that I have on my shirt. Not sure if it's really on purpose but she sure is fascinated with it!

    Oh, and she's started humming herself to sleep, it's the sweetest thing.

    I returned home from a trip today.

    Mr W was happy to see me.

    Later, he climbed up in my lap, tapped me on the face, and said, "You cannot go away no more." He did it three times.
