Holy cow, the summer went fast, and my lil’ pumkin is going into 10th grade.
Funny how life turns out. 10 years ago I got teary when I put Evan on the bus for his first day of school. Now I get weepy the week or two before classes start, hoping that I’ll be able to get through the last days of summer without losing my mind or damaging my credit score with multiple purchases from Abercrombie, Pacsun, Hot Topic and other bastions of hideous teenage fashion.
Look who visited us in the backyard today!
It’s the turkey I talked about in a previous blog — She hatched BABIES! LOTS of babies!
Speaking of animal babies. . .
Take a look at how Petunia has grown! She’s just a terrifically sweet dog! Tulip still isn’t crazy about her but Petunia is even growing on Tulip!
She’s still only a couple of pounds.
SPEAKING OF TURKEYS AND BABIES. . .
It is amazing to me that Jamie Lynn was vilified for getting pregnant, her show put on ice, Lynn Spears lost her mothering book deal, and even poor Miley Cyrus was all but KILLED for posing for a photo, totally covered by a towel.
My, how things have changed in a few weeks . . .
Now everyone seems to think that Spread-em-wide-Bristol and Don’t-keep-it-in-your-pants-Levi are some super role models for getting knocked up. Not that it takes a brain surgeon to get preggers, but must we all act as though this has no affect American youth and obey the urging of the politicians who would like us to cease talking about it?
