Birthday for my princess

Lyla turned 5 yesterday!

Our day started with pancakes donuts.

And presents!

And then a trip to the mall to get ears pierced! 

Then we did some psychedelic nails!

And of course a fancy cupcake with candles after her requested dinner of brussel sprouts and fish! (No seriously that is what she wanted for her birthday dinner!)

Then the princess had to go to bed!

I can't believe my baby is 5! Seems like yesterday we yanked her out of my belly. She is my best friend and I hers. I hope I can say the same in 10 years!

Is It Possible?

I just had the worse possible departure from my daughter. Her daddy was bringing her to school and she screamed so loud for me I swear the police will be knocking any minute wondering if I'm beating my children.

Seriously, she was screaming for me like it was her first day at school. Like she was never going to see me again. She squeezed on to me as if she hadn't just spent the last 3 full days by my side. One of the worse feelings as a parent is watching your child scream for you that they just want to stay with you and not leave.

Ugh, my heart is seriously breaking.

It makes me wonder...

Is it possible for me to work at home full time AND home school?! I don't want to do this anymore.

Sister's Best Friend

My sister's dog was hit by a truck today and killed. It happened right in front of her house and she and her husband had to take care of him and bury him in the back yard. He died instantly. He was her baby, her best friend.

I loved Frankie too, but mostly because of how much he meant to my sister. She and her husband got him right after he was born and it was the first thing they truly did together - raise him. She was so attached to the pup and he to her that whenever she would leave the room or the house, he would cry. He was big for a puggle but was her lap dog. Frankie loved his cousin Lyla too.

I'm so sad for the family to suffer this loss and sad my daughter is sad. She knows what happened and sincerely cried for a good five minutes about how much she'll miss him. I was honest as per usual with her and said he was hit by a truck in the road and killed.

Tonight she wanted to draw a picture for her auntie - she drew a road and was going to draw a truck and the dog. At first I was horrified. My husband laughed at the sickness of it. She got upset with me that I didn't like her picture.

How do you explain to a four year old that drawing a picture of what happened will hurt someone and it's more important to make them a picture that will make them happy?

Let me tell you, it was hard and I'm still not sure she understood. Maybe when she asked me how he died, I didn't have to be so honest? I keep second guessing myself and am certain no matter what I tell her, tomorrow when she sees my sis, she'll say something potentially offensive. But only because she's a child and doesn't truly understand other's feelings just yet. She's genuinely sad but not able to completely comprehend how it affects others.

Regardless of what happens, it's a sucky thing. I'm worried about my sis and my daughter. The truth sometimes really hurts.
