Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

How old do I look to a 4th grader?!?!

Me: Today we are learning about Voice. (Blah, blah, blah...)

Me: What is it you say nowadays when something is cool?

Students: (Various hands and answers: Cool! Awesome! Sweeet!)

Me: Excellent! Well, when I was younger, do you know what we used to say?

Student: Groovy?

Parapro in room: *snicker*

Me: (twirling my mood ring and slinging my love beads over my shoulder) Ummmm, noooo, I am not quite THAT old.

Me: (on the inside remembering the balding, old man who was checking me out at the Quizno's last night)

Me: We used to say, "That is hip!"

Students: laughing so hard they are rolling out of their chairs.

Me: Groovy is what they used to say on the Brady Bunch!

Students: Dead silence/blank stares.

Me: Good gravy - I guess I AM that old.
