Happy Birthday Bailey!

Well, tomorrow is my oldest child's birthday, but since it is also FHV/PN, I am going to post it today! Bailey is 11 years old! It is crazy to me that I have been a mom for 11 years now. I still don't think I am old enough to be one. But that's what happens when you get married at 14.
Bailey is the best oldest child a person could ask for. He is totally respected by his younger siblings, and by his parents. (I mean, we would never put him in tight pajamas just to get a good video out of it) So for Bailey's birthday I am going to share my favorite Bailey story with you all. When we lived in Canada Bailey went to kindergarten there. The teachers had you call them "madame" instead of "Mrs." and Bailey's teacher was Madame Dolly. But Bailey never could say "madame". So he would come home and we would ask him, "how was school", or "what happened at school today", you know the typical questions GOOD parents are obligated to ask. And Bailey, who loved his teacher, would always respond with telling us something about her. He would always say, "The Dam Dolly taught about....". We loved how he referred to her as "The Dam Dolly". Which may have been the reason we continued to always ask him about her.


Bailey, 11 years ago.


Bailey, or as we called him Mr.Magoo.


Wow, it seems like at least a decade ago!



Happy Birthday Bailey! We love you!
