I haven't been able to sleep well lately, and tonight was no exception because I can't stop thinking about saying goodbye to my kid3. I watched him sleeping for a little while earlier this morning and I just keep thinking that this little boy, MY little boy will no longer be a little boy when he comes home at Christmas. I keep thinking of how I will miss the transition ... him growing up, becoming who he is destined to be. Im going to miss it...

I was talking to Mr. B. tonight about drama, low drama, high drama, no drama…. Just drama.
After talking we have come to the conclusion that drama is not all bad. To ask a girl to have no drama is like telling a kid that they can’t have any candy in the candy store- it’s not gonna happen. As humans we really do thrive off of a certain amount of drama and that’s okay. Life would be boring without it.
I think these are key survival tips for drama-
1. learning not to need drama to survive
2.learning not to create drama to survive
This delicate balance is a tricky one and teaching it to a teenage girl is darn near impossible…. But I’m trying.
I want my girls to have a certain amount of drama; I mean what’s a girl without that little squeal of delight, the six-year-old girl scream when they see a spider and the huffing and puffing when things don’t go quite right? I love it about girls, Mr. B. loves it about girls, but there is a line and that line gets crossed in our house too much.
We’re all learning.
We’re all human.
But thank goodness,
we’re not ALL girls!

don't worry, they are going to promptly shave his head as soon as he arrives and don't worry, I'll post a picture.... :)
Believe it or not…. I’m about to drop my baby off at military school for his high school years. I keep saying it out loud, I keep telling people- I may be convincing myself, I’m not sure. I just keep saying it…. Military school, military school, military school…..
My baby Kid3 will be joining the elite at New Mexico Military Institute as of August 5th. He is so excited, and so are we. It’s a different kind of goodbye when you are telling your child goodbye for school, it’s sad but knowing he’ll be happy and it’s the best education around gives Mr. B. and I a peace of mind.
Kid3 IS and will always be my baby, he was thought to be our last baby and we cherished every moment with him. He was the cuddliest, softest, easiest going most loving little person I had ever met. He is still so kind and just exactly what I want my little boy to be. He’s always amazed me with his ability to quietly understand people; it’s a rare quality in a young boy.
My sweet sweet kid3, you cannot know how I adore you, you cannot know how I'll miss you and you could never wrap your mind around how proud you make me. You take my breath away, you always have, I'll love you forever and I can't wait to see you in November! (I'll let you drink ALL the monsters and eat ALL the twix you want............. maybe)

I’ve been so busy lately. I started school a few weeks ago and am taking 3 night classes. I’m learning a lot and enjoying having a break from home. Mr. B. is taking good care of the evening chores around the house; in fact it’s probably never been cleaner!
I promise I’ll blog soon… about summer, about life and about my baby boy going off to military school in TWO weeks!
