And, it has BEGUN!

And, it has BEGUN!

Well, I thought I had a few more years before this happened, but Jamie has officially understood the meaning of money.

As in, we’re at the mall and the mechanical horse costs $.75 (that’s highway robbery for that thing, by the way). Jamie says,

“Dada. Please have money. Puhllleeaase.”

Sccccccrrrrrreeeeeaaaaaccch

Me: “Whay did you say?”

Jamie: “Please have money, mama”

And like a sucker we just have to give her money because she was being so polite. Sheesh!

So, yeah. How did this happen? How did I gain a teenager in just 25 short months?

If that wasn’t heart breaking enough (my baby’s all growed up!) I check out the Christmas tree display (see in background of last pic?) to find one decorated by the Heart Gallery. I love the Heart Gallery. When I was exploring adoption during our infertile days, I used to peruse that site daily. Their tree has pics of foster kids along with letters written by them. I see:

“Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is a family that will let me be with my brother.
-Jacob”

Heart strings! Oww!

And just like that I’m crying in the middle of the mall.

For the love of God, someone find Jacob a home so he can live with his brother!

Lately, I’ve been so in love watching my kids play together. I just can’t imagine them being apart!

Ok. Let’s look at a pic of Jamie loving her brother to distract us from poor Jacob:

Ok. Now who do I have to pay to adopt Jacob and his brother?
