Nine! Isn't that girl thirteen yet?!?

Actually, I consider nine to be a pivotal year of sorts, or at least it seemed so for my chicklets. It was the year that my sweet first born couldn't go to sleep one night and as I was comforting him we got to the root of what was really bothering him as he said, "Is it true Mom, that there are enough bombs to blow up the whole world?"
Your chicklets may have already realized these sad facts, but my boy was mostly media deprived at that point.

Happy ninth Mom of Karin.

She's been going on 13 all her LIFE! :D
