Summer 2013!

Summer 2013 is over. But here in Miami its almost impossible to tell one season from the next, they all feel like Summer! So, here at my house this Summer as been wonderfully busy and full of surprises!

This year my baby girl said good bye to fourth grade. We have this tradition at the end of every school year where we release a balloon in the air as a symbol to mark the end of that school year and to announce the beginning of Summer vacation!



This Summer Sundari attend Miami Children’s Theater where she played the Pink Fairy- Flora in Sleeping Beauty and she play Grace in Annie!

Sundari as Flora and Grace

 Broadway, here she comes!

Now my oldest daughter Jeannie turned 17 over the Summer, took her graduation pics and got her first job!

JEANNIE SUMMERIsnt she beautiful?   Boy, she’s growing up fast!! Did I mention she is an excellent dancer, one of the best in her school!!

Summer goes so fast and so do our kids. Before you know it they’ll be grown and gone but for now they are in their rooms safe and sound enjoying their Labor Day vacation.  I have to remind myself to breathe in every moment!

“A doctor, an agent and a politician walk into a bar…”

Brian Williams interviews brothers  Ari Emanuel, agent,  Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, and Ezekiel Emanuel, a bioethicist.  Regardless of whether you agree or believe as they do, parents dream of this kind of successful for their children but most importantly dream that our children live their dreams and live up to their potential.

Fourth Grade Wisdom

Every once in awhile my 10 year daughter Sundari says the most thoughtful, funny and enlightening things and she remains completely oblivious to it all…just thought I’d share!

1. ” My teacher calls us “YOU PEOPLE”…. we all have names and she should call us by our names”!

2. “Why is everything made in China?”

3. “Its not fair that Friday is so close to Monday but Monday is a long way from Friday!”

4. “Mommy, I know its both your anniversary but Daddy pays…leave your purse in the car!”

5. .” Romney can be president, just not on this planet!”…she said with all sincerity

I love this little girl!
