These are letters to Jack, my son, and my daughter, Audrey. You have given me the gift of motherhood. This is just a little gift back. I want to share my experiences with you of your childhood from my perspective of watching you grow - of being your Mom.

Dreaded question

Jack,

Our nighttime routine continues to expand as you get older to include, sitting on the potty, brushing your teeth and, now, cutting your nails.

When you were younger, I would cut your nails when you were asleep, but it's getting too hard to do it now because you struggle even when sleeping - especially when it comes to clipping your toenails.

Now I cut your nails when you are awake. You usually whimper while I assure you that "Mommy be careful, Jack. It's okay!"
and you'll protest "huuuuuurt. Clip nails! Huuuuuurt."
and I tell you - "No, it won't hurt. I'll be careful, okay?"
"Caaaare-fulllllll"
"That's right"

with this new tradition, we get ready for bed in the evenings and, after brushing your teeth and heading for the bathroom door, you will ask with your voice quavering in dread "Cut nails?"

To your tremendous relief, only one in 14 times that you ask that will the answer be "yes" because we only cut nails once every two weeks.

But you live in dread of that fraction. :)

Love,

Mommy
AND finally...
WHAT THE?!?!?:

I have to say - I didn't think you could TAKE a bad picture, then THIS happened and you proved me wrong!

FYI - that scratch by your eye came from your teacher. I would have killed her if she hadn't felt so incredibly bad about it. She is a young 18-20 year old who's nails are still very important to her and she didn't realize she had scratched you until after it happened. Not to worry - if it happens again, she's dead.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
