Backwards could be fun.


We have been getting a lot of practice in the baby department this summer. We love Brayden and Adriana. And look at how good my summer job has been for my girls. Abigail has learned to multi-task at the ripe old age of 9.

I found my most recent photo of infancy to go along with the following scenario.

Thanks to Sheila for the e-mail forward.
I would link her but she went all private on you guys.


I want to live my next life backwards:
You start out dead and get that out of the way.
Then you wake up in a nursing home feeling better every day.
Then you get kicked out for being too healthy.
Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension.
Then when you start work,
you get a gold watch on your first day.

You work 40 years until you're too young to work.
You get ready for High School: where you make all your major mistakes, but you don't have to change because you will soon be under the age of accountability.
Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play,
and you have no responsibilities.
Then you become a baby, and then...
You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in
Spa-like conditions - central heating, room service on tap,
and then...
You finish off as an organism. (yeah that really didn't say organism, that is just what I read the first time and LG made me change this for my easily offended readers)

I was going to tell you what I thought that said, but really didn't want to offend anyone ; )

I don't want to get all morbid but every so often I stop and think my gosh I'm almost 60--I only have a couple of good decades left.

Love the picture of your daughter multi-tasking. Great lesson, mom.

That last line made me laugh! I am impressed that your daughter already has the kind of mulit-tasking down. It took me until my second child to figure that out ;)
