so today is #1 go-go-gadget-girl's 9th birthday and the house is blessedly empty. why? the 3 go-go-gadget-girls and mr. fast lane went to the bike shop for a basket for gggg's new bike! isn't it cute? it's the one she wanted, a good little cruiser, just like moms - except mom's is bigger, blue, and has 21 speeds.
anyway, back to the quiet house. it seems fitting for moms to get little perks on birthdays, after al,l they did all the work, the kid just showed up; i used to send flowers to mr. fast-lanes mom on his birthday, and even did it a few times to my own family - which they thought was weird. what do you think?
