My baby’s not a baby anymore



Today my baby turns 4 years old. Mallory was born on 5/5/05 at 5:55 pm in labor and delivery room #5. No lie!! She’s my 5 star baby! My favorite age is 4 years old. At 4 years old, they are curious, funny, love school, and love to help. Mallory is a smart-ass, and she rules her little world with a fairy scepter and mermaid tail. She is imaginative and fears nothing. She is also the only blond in the family –don’t ask me how that happened, I’m still trying to figure that one out myself! We are supposed to go to the zoo today because that is Mallory’s most favorite place in the whole wide world, but I don’t know if the weather is going to cooperate or not. It’s very very cloudy and cool and humid, and there is rain in the forecast, but it could go either way. It will either be a perfect day for the zoo, or the worst possible day to go. We may opt for the aquarium instead…it all depends on the rain.


Before the caffeine kicked in and after I read MizFit’s post this morning, I joined her team in the Woman Challenge. It’s an 8 week challenge to be more active, and so in my foggy-brained head it sounded exactly like what I need right now. I really really REALLY hope I don’t disappoint Miz or myself, but I need some kind of external force pushing me along.

Okay, I gotta get busy. Lots to do today!

  1. Imagine me singing “Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday, Dear Mallory, Happy Birthday to you!!!” Now also imagine me having a beautiful voice. 🙂

    What a little sweetie you have. I miss those wonderful times when kids are so funny and full of wonder. I’m enjoying those times all over again with the grandkids.

  2. Golly she’s cute! (and so are you!) I really really hope you had good weather for the zoo today. That was one of my most favorite places to go as a kid.
