Chatty today.

Boy, I just won't shut up today. Especially about my daughter, shes been doing amazing things. We went to the fair last week (did I blog about the fair already?I don't remember. Oh well, if I have just suck it up ok?).

Anyway, our daughter doesn't often get to win things when her brother is playing. Mainly, because he cheats (something we are working on). So, at the fair at one of those cheesy games, she won. Her brother couldnt cheat, it was impossible for him to. The hub was helping the little guy a little bit and she still won. I wasn't helping her but I was cheering her on like a crazed maniac win-obsessed mom.

It was one of those deals where you throw the little ball up the little ramp in your lane and you try to get as many as you can in the red hole. Do you know which one? Sure you do, and if you don't just act like you do.

Anyway, time and time again that little ball found its way into the hole. The RED hole. Man, I was excited. Then she WON. SHE won. Her face was priceless when the carnie guy announced her as the winner.

It sounds corny and all to be so excited, but I was. What a huge ego boost to this girl, and to see me all excited probably did her some good too. I need to get more excited about her accomplishments, more often, I mean, I don't mean act even crazier. Her brother looked positively sick, but thats ok too. He needs more humbling experiences.

I'm just catching up- I love your blog. That is such a great feeling, isn't it, to see your kid win something?! I have to restrain myself a little on the soccer field so I don't look like a crazy person. Oh, and of course I love the pics...
