So this morning I am officially the mom of a teenager. And I’m wondering: how the heck did that happen. Plus, my teenager happens to be heading to camp. Yes, on his birthday. But I don’t think he minds. In fact, I think it’s a pretty cool birthday present.

In other milestone news, someone has some teeth issues:


All she wants for her birthday is her two front teeth. Do you like the artistic nature of the picture? It’s from Chuck E. Cheese. Ha!

And at long last I have joined the dark side e-readers. For my birthday (we’re a mid to late summer birthday family), I got a Kindle. Do I love it? Yes, yes I do. It’s actually very easy on the eyes. (I mean to read, but it’s also a nice looking device as well.) I’ve noticed a few formatting glitches, but that doesn’t really bother me. The true downside?

It’s far, far too easy to buy books.

    Happy birthday to Andrew!

  2. Great picture of Kyra — even without her front teeth, she is beautiful!
    Belated b-day greetings to Andrew!
    Belated b-day greetings to you! Hope you enjoy the Kindle… M. is in love with his.

  3. Birthdays to remember!

    So which Kindle is it? 1, 2, or the big one?Format glitches? I bet. Formatting for the Kindle is barely Beta. Grump.

    Question, how important do you think curly quotes are when you are reading?

      It’s the Kindle 2 and I still have much love for it. I’m actually reading much more after a long day on the computer vs. less.

      Re: curly quotes. I checked all the books/samples I’ve downloaded so far and they all have them. Personally, I like them (although I know they can be a pain, formatting wise), but I’d probably read without them.
