Our sweet baby girl turns 5 today!!! For her birthday, I got her a popcorn maker, ala my friend Elaine...this morning it is popcorn for breakfast and Despicable Me...that is the fun stuff for right now.
What is really on my mind is domestic. Not as in the opposite of foreign, but as in domestication and housekeeping types of things. I would say that, on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is Pig Pen as a hoarder and 10 is maybe Jack Nicholson's OCD character in As Good As it Gets, I probably fluctuate between a 4 and a 6.5- maybe on a special occasion or oddly motivated day I might hit a 7, but if I do, it doesn't last long.
Keeping my little world here clean has been an extra struggle since having Cilly and Neil. Aiden is pretty self contained. When he was 2, I don't think he ever took out toys- he just ran back and forth and plopped onto the couches full speed face first. And wrestled with John and jumped on the couches and even danced. (see? my genes are in there...)
