    Little easy child/difficult child 3 turns 9 today! NINE. OMG. I remember being 9. It suddenly seems like such a grown-up number. She's not a "little" girl anymore, for some reason in my strange head.

    She really, REALLY wanted an iPod nano for her birthday. That's pretty spendy, I told her. I know she'd take good care of it, she's just a little more capable than the older ones, being a girl has something to do with that, I think. But, I can't throw a big party AND buy an expensive gift like that. So she compromised. That is her ONLY gift from the family, and she gets to invite a couple of girlfriends for a sleepover this weekend. That, I can handle.

    She is walking around with her headphones on singing right now :D She already memorized half the songs from Wicked that were on my iPod...

    It's exciting to see her growing up, but kinda sad, too. :(

    Happy Birthday easy child/difficult child 3.
    They sure do grow up fast, don't they.

    Hope she has a great day, and enjoys the sleepover.

    Awww...she sounds so grown up and reliable. I'm glad she's enjoying her iPod and skipping around. Sleep overs are the best. Maybe I should have my adult girlfriends over for a sleep over and send husband and easy child out of the house for the night???

    Hope she has a great day and you survive the sleep over. The youngest is always the hardest to watch grow, I understand the bittersweet part of it.
