Message From a Bathroom.

Tonight's a big night in our house, M is having 9! friends over for her "movie theater/sleepover" birthday party! Her birthday is Tuesday and she's turning NINE!

She is so, so, so excited. She hasn't been able to think or talk or even breathe about anything BUT this party.

A few nights ago though, she was at her mom's and called and left a voicemail here, and J and I laughed our tails off after listening to it.

Here's the recap:

Echo-y sounding {cause she's in the bathroom}, whisper voice {cause she doesn't want T to know she's calling} M:

"Hi, it's {first and last name}, oh wait, you know that. Umm, so T was invited to my mom's neighbor's friend's grandma's farm this weekend and he really wants to go. But that would mean he'd be gone on Friday and you know Friday, it's my party. And just so you remember, I never miss his birthdays. So....think about it!"

Click.

This was her way, in not so many words, of telling us that it would definitely NOT be fair if he went away and missed her party. The horror!

No worries. He's not going, however he is spending the night at my in-laws. And we did convince both T and M why this would be a great idea for the party and all is well. But the message, oh the message, that's our M!

Haha! I love it! For Hunter and Boo it would be opposite...they don't want each other around for their parties...ever. And the other doesn't want to be there. I don't know if it is because of how far apart they are or what, but it makes me laugh.

NINE KIDS???? WOW! You are a superstepmom! Although maybe 9-year-old girls are easier than 7-year-old girls??

So sweet that she is so excited that she had to leave her full name - in a whisper. So classic. Have to save that one.

Thanks for being a constant in our Friday conversations world. Love it!

Happy party and happy weekend!!

It isn't hard at all to start making money online in the undercover world of [URL=http://www.www.blackhatmoneymaker.com]blackhat blog[/URL], It's not a big surprise if you haven’t heard of it before. Blackhat marketing uses not-so-popular or little-understood ways to generate an income online.
