Is it just me?

...or is there a bit of mischief in those eyes?
Handsome but maybe a little naughty?

Free Today!

Happy 3rd birthday to Miss Hanna! When you ask her how old she is she says, "free today!" hence the blog title. No, she is not free for the taking. Not today anyway!
We celebrated tonight with cake, gluten free of course. Hanna helped to make it and frost it. She opened presents. Her favorite was a box of 24 colors of play dough, not gluten free of course. We'll just have to be careful about hand washing. I don't think she'll attempt to eat it. Let's hope not!
She sang "happy birthday" to herself with the rest of us. She was the loudest and proudest. At one point she busted out with "Go Hanna, it's your birthday, call your momma!". I'm not sure where that came from but it sure was funny!
What a special girl she is. There is never a dull moment with Hanna. There is rarely a quiet moment with her either. It's hard to believe she's 3 already. Wow the places she's been...and the places she'll go!
If I were to use three words to describe Hanna they would be:
TENDER
MUSICAL
DRAMATIC
(it's so hard to just use three...she's a whirlwind of things...like sassy, loud, funny, giggly, smart, a survivor, sweet, ...I could go on and on)

Happy birthday to my sweet sweet girl! We love you girl friend!

When Did This Happen?

Girls and Pretties



Since the boys have been back in school, I've had more time to play with the "littles" and actually do things that they want to do. Hanna chooses doing "pretties" nine times out of ten. She asks me, "want me to do your pretties mom?". Then we have to get out a squirt bottle of water, a brush and an assortment of clips, headbands, bows and scrunchies. My spot is on the floor. She's very serious about this "game". I get very wet, my hair gets very "pretty" and I usually lose several strands in the process. I'll have to admit though, it all feels worth it somehow when she exclaims, "Mom! It's beautiful! Daddy's gonna love it!". And I'm always sure he would.

No Dogs Allowed




I walked the boys across the street (I know...it is pretty rough) for their first day of school today and this is the pathetic sight I returned to. He's scanning the play ground for his guys. Too bad they don't allow dogs in school. Anybody own an extra small size Paws With a Cause vest? He was extra naughty today too...regressing...great.
