These nutty children of mine.


This is an old picture of the girls, but one of my most favorites.  So I thought I would use it again.  Because it makes me happy...those cuties with their 3-d glasses on...

We had a talk (the 3 of us) of the way home from school today.  A talk about not putting all of your eggs in one basket.  Casey wants to go to Julliard.  Chandler wants to go to Rhode Island School of Design.  But they have a list of other places to apply to, too.  You know, so that they're not putting all of their eggs in one basket. 

But really, this is the nitty gritty that I want to share with you...

Chan:  So, Mama, did you just go to the University?
Me:  No, I started school at a little place called LaGrange College and then I transferred to UGA.
Casey:  What????  You went somewhere else first???  Why?  Why did you do that?
Me:  Well, during my junior year of college, Mems and Pops and I went to visit a lot of schools and I really loved LaGrange.
Casey:  So then why didn't you stay there?
Me:  Well, I wanted to work in theatre and I started college as a theatre major...(rudely interrupted)
Casey:  I think we can all see that that dream's not gonna come true.
Me:  GASP!!!!  Case!  That's not very nice!  It could still come true...you know...when I'm done raising the three of you...
Casey:  Yeah, but you'll be, like, 50 then!
Me:  It could still happen!
Chan:  Yeah, if you use a lot of moisturizer.

Big sigh.  What am I gonna do with these nutty, nutty children of mine????

I'm probably not going to have my dream until I'm 50. One day they will understand that raising a family means putting some thing son hold. Such silly little girls you have. Adorable too!

When you're 50 you'll realize that your real dream was to raise those wonderful, quirky kids and you just didn't know it.
