HAPPY BIRTHDAY 2 ME

A WHILE BACK, I MENTIONED HOW I RELATE 2 TODDLERS, & HAVE A NEW UNDERSTANDING 4 BABIES & TODDLERS. I JUST HAD MY B-DAY ON 8-8 (& AFTER 2 YRS. OF BEING ABLE 2 BLOW OUT A CANDLE, MY EXTENDED FAMILY FINALLY WITNESSED ME BLOWING OUT A CANDLE—GUESS I’M AGAIN AGING!), & I FEEL NO OLDER (THOUGH I NOW HAVE A HIGH SCHOOLER, & THIS FALL, I WILL HAVE A FRESHMAN IN HIGH SCHOOL, A 6TH GRADER IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, & A 4TH GRADER IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL…3 KIDS IN 3 SCHOOLS!) TIME SURE HAS FLOWN IN 14 YEARS! ZACH WAS ONLY 6 YEARS OLD WHEN I HAD MY STROKE…& HE’LL LEAVE HOME BY ANOTHER 6 OR SO YEARS! AAAH!

ANYWAY, WHEN I WAS IN EITHER 5TH OR 6TH GRADE, WE WERE COVERINGTHE REQUIREMENTS 4 THE BABYSITTING MERIT BADGE IN GIRL SCOUTS. I HAVE SEVERAL GOOD STORIES, SINCE MY MOM WAS THE LEADER, BUT 1 THING WE DID WAS A BABY FOOD TEST. I LEARNED THAT BANANAS WERE AWESOME, & I COULD TOLERATE THE OTHER FRUIT, BUT VEGETABLES WERE NASTY!

I NEVER DREAMED THAT I’D USE THIS KNOWLEDGE L8R IN LIFE, BUT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SQUEEZE BOTTLES OF APPLESAUCE, YOGURT, & BANANA BABY FOOD, AS WELL AS MANY TODDLER BABY FINGER FOODS (MY GIRLS LOVE MY DRIED YOGURT BITES 4 TODDLERS, & I’M OK WITH THEM “STEALING” IT FROM ME!). SO MUCH FOR GETTING OLDER!
