Fridays come up so quickly in blog world, but seem to take forever to get here in the real world. What's that all about? If you want to spew some of the thoughts from your mind or read others, go check out Mrs. 4444s. You'll be happy you did.
*So one of the interesting things I have learned from wedding photography is how men are suppose to button their blazers. This, surprisingly enough, is an issue because some guys like them unbuttoned, some all buttoned, some just whine that they have a suit jacket on..... What one groom had been taught from his dad, has stuck in my mind. Say there are 3 buttons on the jacket. Starting at the top button and working your way down, say, "Always, Sometimes, Never". Always button your top button (when standing), Sometimes your second button and never the 3rd button. I thought this tidbit was ingenious when I first heard it.
*The girls and I jam to music in the morning. It helps us to start our day HAPPY. We sometimes have Michael Jackson mornings or sometimes we have whatever is the latest we have bought off itunes. It's fun and makes mornings so much smoother!
*It's funny at 43 how I can still feel intimidated. I took little dude to music class this week for the first time. I felt that the other moms had been doing this for years and knew all the songs and had no problem dancing around the rooms with scarves, etc. I laughed at myself when I realized that I was self-concious. I have no problem standing up and speaking to a crowd of people, but I was having a problem dancing around with a scarf. Guess I'll have to practice in the mornings when I am jamming to Michael Jackson.
*I went to a playground this week with a friend of mine who adopted a 3 year old a few weeks ago from Russia. Listening to her talk and hearing some of the things she was worrying about, it reminded me of some of the same things my sister was worrying about with a newborn. How much to feed them, when to sleep, what to do, language etc... New moms are new moms whatever the age!
*I was invited to the Grand Opening of the new Oshkosh B'Gosh store at the South Shore Mall next week. I am very excited to go! I loved the little pink and white Oshkosh striped overalls that the girls used to wear. Now I get to check out the latest fashions for little dude and his new sister and my new niece, R! Maybe they could make a pair of pink/white striped overalls in my size!?
*Have a great fall weekend!!
