It's been months since the last update and as usual life got in the way. The worst, of course, is that it's been several months since Kaitlin's birthday. Oh well...better late than never.
Once again, Kaitlin wanted a spa party, but as is always the case, there was a twist. This year Kait wanted a sleepover. First time for everything I guess - in fact, it was the first time Kaitlin (and Sarah) have slept in the basement - ordinarily, she wouldn't even go downstairs by herself, but, of course, it's always different when all your friends are around you. I, of course, still did the proper "fatherly" thing, which was to scare them - what's the fun of having a bunch of kids sleep in your house if I don't have a little bit of innocent fun myself! :))
Kaitlin and her friends had a great time and thank God we had some help from families and friends.
Wow - she's 11 now. She's turning into quite a thoughtful and refined young lady...and I'm happy and sad. Very happy with the way she's turning out so far and very sad she's growing up way too quickly. My job as a father will always be to give them everything I can (as it was so eloquently put by Sidney Poitier in "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner") and my only hope is that they will turn out better than me!
Happy Birthday Kaitlin!
