And...on a much sadder note...I have an announcement to make. TCD and I had this conversation this morning:
TCD: Mommy! I know what I want for my birthday!!
Me: Hmmm...it's a little early, isn't it?
TCD: Nope. I've been thinking about this a lot. And it's important.
Me: OK then...what do you want for your birthday?
TCD: I want to legally change my name on your blog to FLOWERING BUTTERCUP!
Me: (giggling...because who can help but laugh when she says stuff like that...) I can do that. But I'm just going to call you FB because FLOWERING BUTTERCUP is too dang long to write every time.
TCD: Nope, that's not going to work for me, Mommy. I want you to write it out. I don't want to be an acronym anymore!
So, with a little remorse because I really like THE CRUISE DIRECTOR (TCD), I'm granting her birthday wish a few months early and legally changing her blog name to FLOWERING BUTTERCUP. From now on, when you see that new,
