Godmothers and god daughters that is. Yesterday I became a (god)mother to a little girl. This time to sweet little Lexie. I couldn’t be more proud. It is such a gift to be entrusted in this way with something as precious as a child. And we all know I could use a little estrogen in my life! When Lori asked me it was such a touching statement that I welled up. I am so grateful to have better relationships with her and my brother than we have in a long time. I am especially thankful to be closer to my nieces and to see their relationships with my own kids developing with that special magic present between cousins. There is nothing better than hanging out with your cousins and having fun. Less competition than siblings and so much closer than friends. It is grand, I am so pleased on all fronts. She is pink perfection, all cheeks and angel hair. I can’t wait to watch her and her big sister grow into beautiful young women. It makes me feel closer to my mom, all of this. Or maybe she just draws nearer when she’s happy. And I know she’s happy right now, seeing her kids and grandkids together. Nothing would please her more.
In less happy news, we spoke with the director of school last night and fully expressed our feelings about Colton. She was sufficiently horrified and together we devised a plan to put into place for tomorrow, assuming we let Colton go to school. We are undecided as of yet. The plan involves total separation from the culprits, chaperoning when needed, and feedback at the end of the day. I am not sure what more we could ask before she has had the chance to review with Colt’s teachers. I am holding my breath in some way. We have a conference scheduled for Wednesday morning. I realize the best outcome is that this works, and he finishes his year at school unscathed, or not scathed any more than he already is. But I am not sure if that can happen. We will see and I will update as I learn more about it.
I hope you love these photos as much as I do.
