You are the man C. I love that you wore your reg clothing when dressing the goat. Your friend Blake is a true cowboy. You had a game plan in your head and it totally worked for you. PETA would be proud. J/k. I was excited that you participated and even more excited about your black socks. Serious. I dig.
So, your dad and Paige, Rachel, and Ava and I are sitting eating our fabulous bbq lunch when a man walks by with something on his shoulder. I hit your dad and pop up and run over to him. I'm sure I was rude by laughing and taking pictures, but Lord it was sweet. It was some weird ass Labyrinth bird on his shoulder. Dad kept turning to you girls and saying, "If that man asks you to follow him to his van run the other way." He looked pale in the face and was completely freaked out. I thought / voiced out loud - "Why would someone do that?" To which you, Paige, replied, "To get you in his van." None of us could think of another valid reason why.
Feast your ojos.
That evening you, Paige once again, reminded tu' padre that my birthday was a day away and he should take me out. We went out for Spanish Tapas and had a fab time.
Darling Ava. When you were in the first grade your best friend was Stella. You two met in Kindergarten and have been inseparable since. When you were student of the week recently Stella wrote,
"I love that you are my bff. I always knew you were the girl for me."
Cute. Stella is full of energy and doesn't care what anyone else thinks; it is like you are soul mates.

You are hilarious lover. You say things that make me pee my pants on a reg basis. If you don't remember when you are old - you liked to take your own pic a LOT. You DID NOT enjoy getting your photo taken with Tu' Madre. Bummer, cause I'm hot. You will regret this someday, but for now I will attribute it to your youngishness.
You told me that I should remember this as "The era where it was not cool to take a selfie with your mother. I want you to know that you don't embarrass me though Mom."
That's good to know.
I would like to usher in a new era though. Maybe the era of hats all the time. You can pull off a hat like no other. This was the day we drove with the top down, sang, and ate at Antonella's baby shower. It was a great day.
This was right after you told your dad you had a boyfriend.
Hahahaha, just kidding.
This is you pretending to be a fly that is attracted to an sloth. You are getting the sloths attention by being, "sexy".

Yesterday I made your hair extra fancy A. When we were talking last night about your day I said,
Mom, "A, did your friends love your hair today."
A, "I don't know."
Mom, "Well, I bet Stella loved it. What did Stella Say?"
Let me interject that it took a long damn time to do your hair and I was being a 1950's female for a quick sec. Thank goodness you are perfection and corrected me in a slightly snarky tone.
Ava, " Mo - o - om, we don't TALK about hair." Btw the "DUH" was implied.

Ava "Paige, who do you think I'm talking about when I say these words = Awesome, cool, and fun?"
I bought super large strawberries today and you said the following,
Ava, " Mom, these strawberries are SOOO big. I didn't know they were so big in the winter."
Mom, "Well, they aren't being grown here in the winter. They are growing in some other part of the world and being shipped in."
Ava, " Oh, I bet they are from France."
Mom, "Really, why do you say that?"
Ava, "Well, France is very fancy and they must make fancy things there and strawberries are also fancy."

So, the first time I met your grandfather he had pants on, but soooo many times after that he did not. Rather he had long johns / sleep bottoms / or underwear on. I walked into the kitchen the other day to find that your father has turned 80. He was wearing his Under Armour long johns as clothing - by itself.
Not only is this occuring, but when we were watching How I met Your Mother he asked so many ridiculous questions like this, ( PLEASE say this in a crotchidy old man voice - like the ancient janitor guy in Harry Potter)
"WHaaat? How did she know him. I don't understand did they already know him? How did she find him? I don't get it this makes no sense. Did she try to find him?"
AHHHHH really dude.
The other morning I gave you a "Haircut" 5 minutes before leaving for school. We fly by the seat of our pantalones at our house. It is just how we roll. IT is muy unfortunate that you moved your head down a bit while I was cutting. It is also super unfortunate that I have NO CLUE how to cut hair. I really have no business pretending that I can do almost everything. You took it well. I hairsprayed them to the side the first morning and told you that Unicorns prefer girls with hairsprayed, feathered, short bangs.
You are a great kid Ava. You really took it like a champ. I code spoke with your father that evening and you broke the code and told me that I was talking about your bad haircut. Damn it. My code speak it part English, part Spanish, and part weird. I can't really describe it. I'm not so fun to play pictionary with for I code speak the whole time with my pictures.
"what do you mean it looks like a tamale or an armpit? I drew that because it is a Mexican dog that likes to play with baseball bats? Duh"
Hair man - it will grow back. Vitamins per Sue will be our solution.
