This episode I was happy to see my sister Kim initiating plans with the girls. I watch Kim with her kids and know it's hard on her to see them growing up and knowing that eventually they won't live at home. I think that it is so important to have your girlfriends as a source of support, especially because she isn't married. Growing up, my parents were divorced. My Mom always had amazing friends surrounding her and our home was filled with love and laughter. Yes, we have our moments in this group. But we also have a lot of fun and do support each other at the end of the day.
Brandi looked beautiful at the photoshoot. I laughed out loud when she said she didn't like that her thumb has "wrinkles." We are so hyper critical of ourselves. With legs like that, a little thumb wrinkle is only fair.
I was so stressed taking Alexia to the DMV. I wouldn't have been as stressed if she hadn't failed twice already. She was scared and so was I. I knew there would be tears if she failed again. Fortunately, she passed.
That's when it was time for me to get emotional. My Mom used to tell us, as soon as your child gets their license, they're out the door. Why was she always right about everything? Driving my children around is exhausting at times. Between school, doctors' appointments, dentists, parties, sleepovers. . .I often feel like a chauffeur. However, it's also a time that I cherish. We talk, laugh, sing, and share stories. I know that once she is driving completely on her own, she will be home less and those moments in the car will be missed. I have already gone through this with Farrah. I know that the next big milestone is leaving for college. Ugh. Why can't they stay little forever?
