November is usually a crazy month for me filled with lots of no-school days, birthdays and vacations. Currently the most important item on my long to-do list is C’s birthday. My baby will be turning 8 soon!! It’s unbelievable how time flies. It seems like just a few months ago when Dora and Barney were on her birthday wish list but I guess that was a few years ago. Now her wish list consists of Barbie and electronic gadgets. I wonder if I can convince her to add puzzle books and board games to her list. I would be so much happier with the latter lists than her first list.
