I guess if I think about it my daughter does do the same thing, but hers seems to be in phases (she can out eat her dad then). My son just seems to be hungry all the time.

My daughter is 8 and this is her 6th recital. I still get choked up a bit. She lives for those 2 nights that she gets to be on the "big stage" as she put it when she was little. This year she is in acrobatics and Irish - I can't BELIEVE how good she is at the Irish after only 1 year!!!! The acro . . . well, as long as she wants to keep doing it I will certainly encourage her,but she is far from a natural (we sure as heck don't tell HER that!). I couldn't do any of that stuff as a kid or not. NO flexibility and no cartwheels EVER in my past. She has the SAME problems as me, but for some reason absolutely loves going. I admire that in her. In the Irish she has a solo which of course grandmas are beside themselves over!

Sorry - got a tangent there. Tis the season for recitals though and it is a bit consuming. Hers is the week of May 12 though. BUSY WEEK THAT WEEK!!!

Congrats to our daughter. I tear up all of the time with my daughter. She has her first dance recital on June 8th I'm not sure how I'll get through it. lol I just hope I do well enough to be able to at least see it through the tears. lol

As far as it goes for kids snacking. She is going through another stage where I can't fill her up. I can't believe how much she has been eating lately so I know how it feels about wanting a snack before dinner...oh did I mention she is 5...6 in 11 days??

Mine has to have a snack before he eats dinner.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Amen to that! I have a 4 year old son and I'm not sure how we are going to survive this. He is already ALWAYS hungry!!! :)

I got an email from her this morning that she just changed her name recently. Not sure why, but now I don't feel so bad.

My last name is Smith and my kids are Carroll. There is a boy on my son's (Brandon) baseball team named Brandon Smith. So I have to be careful they don't think he is mine. One teenage boy is all I can handle. emoticon

As a teacher I go through that ALL the time. Usually I do it the other way though and refer to the step-dad by the kid's last name. This year I did it and they never said a word - of course I figured it out the next day and still remember it. Ugh!

There were 5 girls that earned Bronze, silver and gold and they were all leader's daughters but one. So all the moms got to pin their daughters. They didn't have to talk though, just me. Then I found out one of the girls has a different name than their mom. I did her certificates in her mom's last name. I got a graduation invitation the next day.......I felt so stupid. I had no idea her name was different. I'm lucky I knew her real first name. She went by camp name as long as I knew her.

Never apologize for a tear shed over your daughter. Someday she will understand and appreciate them probably more than she can now. :)

Don't feel bad I am sure most of us would be the same.I had a mom starting to tear up a couple of weeks ago cause I asked her to pin her daughter enrollment pin on. She and her mom were also Guides so for them it was a special moment.
Well done on a great job with your daughter.

Thanks! She was mortified at me. I did the whole bridging to adults and awards ceremony. I should have done hers last, cause I started to cry. Yikes-she was so embarrassed. So was I.

No I haven't. I need to do that. We don't even live in our Service Unit anymore. So I might try both papers. It is on my list of things to do. I have to down load the pics tonight.

Good for your girls. It is a lot of work. I have several girls lined up to help w Silver and Gold for next year!!! Yeah!

That is awesome and congrats to your daughter! My girls are working on their Bronze as a whole troop together. They have changed their direction a couple of times since the initial planning in 4th grade (we are almost done with 5th grade now) but I think they are going to stick with this idea! It takes a lot of dedication and your daughter deserves a big pat on the back along with you!

Have you sought to get the news published in the local newspaper? Get the word out that scouts is not just about cookies?

Go Team Golden Phoenix!

Thanks! We had a good time planning it together. She had some great ideas and was gung ho on most of the project.

Congrats to your daughter, her fellow awardees and yourself.

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.

Yeah! Good for you . . . and her! I earned my Gold Award (back in the day) and I cherish the time my mom put into everything to help get me there. Enjoy!

Our service unit is honoring our graduating seniors and five girls that earned the Bronze, Silver and the Gold. I'm excited! I planned a small ceremony and made really nice certificates in frames for them all.
