Today is Jr's party!!!

I have my 3rd Birthday pictures for today :)
#1 I'm not sure what's up with the plants
#2 is Buh, me, my Mom, and cousin Kris

Ya know this whole important list thing is getting kinda hard. I think I'm gonna go with my health is important to me.

You all know how much I complain when I'm sick because it slows me down and gets in the way of me getting things done!I've lead a generally healthy life. Until I had kids anyways. Up until that point I'd never seen doctors on a regular basis, I hadn't stayed in the hospital since I was born and my major illnesses were the regular kid illnesses like chicken pox, pneumonia(5 times), the normal stuff.

I've never broken a bone but I've had my fair share of stitches and injuries. I fell down a set of concrete stairs and had stitches in my forehead. I broke a window with my chin and then stepped in the glass but I don't think they stitched those up, I did have to go to the ER. I pulled a tendon in my finger rolling up a car window. Not sure how it happened. I twisted my foot jumping out of a swing. My kids aren't allowed to jump out of swings. I bruised my left elbow by going over a speed bump too fast on my bike. I went over the handle bars and landed on my palms. They gave me some heavy duty pain killers and told me not to take them if I had to concentrate, the day before finals.

My Mom is having some health issues right now and It's certainly been a big eye opener for me to take better care of myself so I can stay healthy!

They did stitch your chin but not your foot... can't remember why. And we missed a trip to the park when you took a head dive down the stairs! Buh was so NOT happy about that.

And your old mom was always healthy except for babies, so taking good care before you are ill makes all kinds of good sense ;-}

I forgot to mention yesterday - how cool to see a pic with your mom and grandma from way back when. How is your grandma these days?

I remember you having bad luck with windows...which is why you already had the procedure down for what to do when you break a window in the middle of the night... :P

I still the bumps from my two forehead scars. I was only 11-12 months old when I fell down concrete stairs - we moved out of that house a few weeks after I turned one.
