So....I am old.
Just thought I'd throw that out there:  see if y'all are paying attention.

How do I know this -- that I am old?
Easy.  My son, Monkey Boy, is turning 9 this weekend.
I have been a mother for almost a decade now, and I still don't know what the hell I am doing some days.
I should have learned ...learnt?....see right there!!!   with the word trouble!

I feel I should know more by now.    Have a few time honoured tricks up my sleeves.

But... know what they say about old dogs.
 And, that's how ya know.

4) I wish that Thanksgiving was here already.    Because TURKEY.   And mashed potatoes.  And pumpkin pie.   It's the one time of the year I pig out.

And of course, it means Halloween is right around the corner, and Candy.
Which is the second time of the year I pig out.

October is basically Eat All The Food Month.
Preparing for a long cold winter ya know.

Happy birthday Monkey Boy!
