Our week was CONSUMED with two major Annabel events – a poetry book report that included a memorized oral presentation, and the school talent show. Getting that girl ready for both almost killed me, but luckily, both went very well. Annie crushed it at the talent show – her act was stand-up comedy! She wrote her own jokes (she walked around the house for a few days with a notepad, looking at us and writing stuff down, it was unnerving) and proved that she can crack up a room full of kids. As she performed her act, it was great to watch her get more and more confident on stage. She says her next stop is the Comedy Store on Sunset Blvd, LOL.

Be My Valentine
Ummmm Valentine’s Day is THIS WEEK. I should probably order some for my kids, don’t you think?
~These scratch-off valentines are cute!
~I love the paper airplanes! And they’d be good for fine motor skill development, LOL
~Last year Annie gave out whoopie cushions with a card that said, “hope your valentine’s day doesn’t stink!” I should have James do that this year, he’d be the hit of Kindergarten.
Happy Sunday, everyone!

How are you ever going to get her to come out of her shell? Wow, she did an amazing job! So poised and confident – I was going to say “for her age”, but honestly – for ANY age! Way to go Annie!
She did a great job! I laughed at all of her jokes. Go Annie! I’ll be waiting for her stand-up specials on HBO.

Could you possibly send me the link to the anti-vaxxer article? I realize a week has gone by, but I am just now getting a chance to read the articles you sent out and the link to this one isn’t working. We have a stubborn anti-vaxxer in our family
Whoops, sorry about that! https://www.dailydot.com/irl/teens-anti-vaxxers-reddit/irl/teens-anti-vaxxers-reddit/&r=&bc=
Thanks Heather. I miss your vaccine month…I would tag this relative & all her online cronies and they would buy thousands of vaccines out of stupidity! And I would relish every moment of it!
