(kc, you will be able to relate to this moment!)

So I was waiting in the car loop on Friday to pick Anderson up from school. As his teacher brought him out to the car, I noticed he had quite the bruiser on his cheek. I thought maybe he fell or something so when they got to the car I said "wow anderson, looks like you took a tumble today." the teacher told me that actually he got scratched by a kid in another class while playing at recess. When I looked closer I saw that yes, those were definitely fingernail scratches on BOTH of his cheeks. They were pretty nasty. I was a little upset with the situation (i had lots os questions- why didn't I get a phone call? how was the situation handled at school? what did anderson do when it happend? did he instigate the feud?) but I am very careful not to talk about my kids in front of them so I got the basic info from the teacher and left it at that.

Well.... on the way home I was asking Anderson about the incident.
Was it Jackson? "no, not Jackson."
Was it Courtney? (this is his favorite girl he told me once), "no mom not Courtney."
he said "A different girl, mom."
A different girl? "yes, different one"

then he kept saying "chocolate."

Oh, did they give you a piece of chocolate b/c you were sad??
"no mom", he said, "chocolate girl. chocolate girl."
So I was a bit confused until it dawned on me what he meant. Anderson, I ask, did she have brown skin? like her arms and hands?

"yes, chocolate girl scratch me."

oh dear, what do you do????

At least it wasn't in public or in front of her parents!

Almost a 1 year old!

Adrianna will be 1 in 6 days. I can't believe it. Her birthday party is a Sweet Shoppe/Candy theme. Its going to be super cute. Her invites turned out adorable and my dear friend Amanda, who takes all my kids pictures b/c she's the best, used a bunch of the photos from her invitation photo shoot to make a collage. I would wait to post a pic of it b/c I don't want to spoil its cuteness at the party, but it is so cute that I can't wait til after the party. So, here it is.

My personal fav is the one in the middle row, on the far right. She is looking at the lollipop and if she could talk, she would be saying "I LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH! YOU ARE THE GREATEST THING THAT HAS EVER TOUCHED MY LIPS!!!"

Needless to say, Adri loved her lollipop and it sure made for some cute pictures.

Adri loves her shopping cart

...and dancing!
