My Baby is Six!

Claire's Birth Day! May 5, 1999

Claire's Birthday! May 5, 2005 Posted by Hello

We had a wonderful day. Daddy and Claire started out the day with a bike ride/run, then a trip to Friendly's for breakfast. Benjamin and I brought a giant pizza cookie to Claire's classroom in the afternoon. We also brought the alka-seltzer rocket which the kids enjoyed out on the playground. Swimming lessons in the afternoon. Pizza at Romeo's for dinner (where the above picture was taken). Cold Stone Creamery for dessert! And lots of presents to open at home.

Jeff and I gave Claire a "boom box." That's what we used to call portable cd/radios. Do they still call them that? Claire's has really enjoyed listening to music lately. Jeff had rigged up a portable cd player with old speakers from the computer. That worked great, but it was a bit fragile. Claire will be able to operate this one all on her own and choose which music she wants to listen to. We also got her a Disney Classics cd with great tunes from Mulan, Hercules, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc. We are avoiding Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson and all other pop princesses for as long as possible!

Omigod, I have fallen in love with your husband Jeff!!!and so early in the morning!
I scrolled down and got to read all I missed while in NY.
I want to read your books too and join in the fun. I actually thing that Julia Cameron's The Artist Way is being supplanted by blogging, for me. So since you are a blogger too, you needn't follow her advice in that book, but can pass it one to someone who doesn't blog.
I am so happy for you and your Frayed Edges group and all the fun you had at your opening. I can't wait to see it all in person.
