Julie II

I grew up watching "The Love Boat" and couldn't wait until Saturday night to see the next episode. "Julie" the Cruise Director, was always telling people what activites were going on that they could join. I have my own "Julie" at my house.

Isabella is my own living, breathing calendar. Every night she asks me "Mom, what are we doing tomorrow?". Not to be confused with the question "Where are we GOING tomorrow". If I answer "I don't know", she'll typically repeat the question (like I didn't hear), ask the other other question, or I hear it again in the morning.

Now if I happen to answer "We're not going anywhere", then she will pester me to no end if I say to get in the car we have to run an errand. She holds me to it!

I think she's going to be a Cruise Director when she grows up.

Although her main concern tonight was what kind of car she's going to buy when she's a teenager. She's pretty overwhelmed with the options. Although I think she's leaning towards a truck.

Oh... I so understand what you are talking about. I have a daughter, who will remain nameless, but she is the one starting high school on Monday, spent a week during her pre-school years stressing out about the kind of car that she should get when she is 16. She fretted, fretted and fretted. After much discussion (with anyone who was breathing) she decided on a Jeep Wrangler. To this day, it is what she wants to drive...

I can see that, I told Bella we would paint our nails at our slumber party the day before it happened. I got so busy with 7 kids in my house and planning for a birthday party the next day, I just didn't get around to it. She kept asking and asking me when we were going to do it. I feel so bad now, I kept saying, I just need to do this first or after the babies go to bed blah blah blah. I owe her a pedicure.
