I’m so glad you got to see Milania’s birthday party and how we were able to have a fabulous, over-the-top party that didn’t cost a lot. That’s how we did all our kids’ parties for years. When the economy was great, we all spent more, and the big parties were fun, but they were never about the stuff you could buy. Especially for birthdays, it was always about showing our kids we love them and you can do that for free!
I was so impressed with both of Gia’s songs. I knew she could sing, but I had no idea she was such a good songwriter! For ten-years-old! I’m so proud to be her mom. I can’t wait to see what she does as she gets older. Of course I thought the song about me and Joey was sad, but it wasn’t surprising to me because I live with her. I know what she knows and how she feels. And we really do try and keep her away from as much as possible -- that’s why I’m always throwing her out of the kitchen when we’re trying to have adult conversations! -- but she’s smart, she knows. But she also knows how much my brother and I love each other, and most importantly, how much we all love her. I think you could see how much love we all have for each other. That’s what kids should be surrounded with.
