Today is a Good News/Bad News kinda day. The first bit of Good News – it’s Rian’s birthday!! She officially turns 14 around 5:30 pm this evening. She has requested Spicer’s doughnuts and cookies rather than cake and has declared this evening a no Laptop/PSP/DS/3Ds or computer time. She wants us all to play on the Wii – as a family. She’s so cute.
The Bad News is laced with Good News. Alexi’s Big Brother, T., is going to have to step down (bad news) because he and his wife are expecting (good news). I’m a little disappointed for Alexi, but so happy for T. and his wife. They’re due in July so there’s lots to prepare and T. needs to focus on his family now. He’s been a great influence for Alexi over the past 3 or 4 years. T. really showed him that men can be consistent and can be depended on. I’m grateful that Alexi was blessed with that experience.
The problem I foresee is that Alexi has such a hard time with separation. I’m afraid this will be very difficult for him.I can see him talking baby talk and refusing to sleep his room again…but I think I would be much better off to focus on Rian’s birthday. And doughnuts….mmmmm, I love doughnuts.
