Sorry if my blog posts have gotten boring lately. I'm having a hard time thinking of things to blog other than cute kid pictures and fashion shows haha. Sometimes it's hard because I'm not a "real" blogger in my mind--I don't blog with the idea that other people will want to read about our little old life; instead I blog for a "baby book" of sorts--and to entertain the grandparents with lots of pictures ;-) So random pictures of the girls pretty much fulfills those requirements! That said though, I do love it when other people stop by my blog and read about our life! And if you comment or follow me I always try to respond or visit your blog too--unfortunately there are way more blogs in blogland than I have time to read and comment every day, so I'm not always good about doing that regularly....sigh.
(On a sidenote---because I keep meaning to mention this and can't remember if I have or not! --- but I appologize for the many spelling and grammatical errors you'll find here haha. One of my majors in college *was* Engligh, so I swear that I do know these things, but I type fast and often with children on my lap, and I don't proofread before posting. So just know that I'm not a complete idiot--sometimes I just type like one ;-)
So anyways, the point of the above rambling is that today I really tried to think of something that everyone might like to read (and maybe play along too!) ....besides just the typical cute kid pictures. So here goes nothing!
Let's play a little "I predict" game. This will be fun for the girls to look back on and read when they are older I think. Maybe I can give it to them on their high school graduation or something ;-)
We'll do Raya first
Raya, I predict you will become a teacher, or something related to education. You are the oldest, and have all the stereotypical characteristics of an older child. Mother hen, like to be the boss, like to "teach" others things....and you love other kids. I really can picture you teaching a class of 2nd graders or maybe even being a school counselor or something.
Raya, I predict you will get good grades in school. You are a people pleaser and very smart.
Raya, I predict that sports won't be your strong point. Maybe you will surprise me, but I see you taking after me as far as not being competitive in team sports. I see you gravitating towards individual activites like dance, music, and maybe more individual sports like golf. I would be shocked if you ever liked track! haha
Raya, I predict that you will be a girlie girl. I see you spending weekends in high school at the mall with your friends and fighting with me over makeup and clothing expenses.
Raya, I predict you'll have your first date at age 15. Dinner and a movie.
Raya, I predict you'll be a social butterfly like your dad, but end up with a small circle of close friends in school like your mom.
Raya, I predict you'll follow in your mom's footsteps and choose to play the flute in school. You definitely seem like a girlie wind instrument sort of gal.
Raya, I predict you will go to college close to home, or at least in the same state.
Raya, I predict you'll get married at age 26 and have a baby by 28 years. I see you with 3 kids.
Raya, I predict you and I will argue a lot during your middle and high school years.
Raya, I predict you'll be grounded for the first time at age 10.
Raya, I predict you will end up with size 9 shoe size.
Raya, I predict that you and Brielle will be very close. I see lots of fighting in middle and high school, but during the college years you will become best friends again and eventually be maids of honor in each other's weddings.
Now for Brielle!
Brielle, I predict you will go into a job field more like your dad. Something like an architect or engineer. Maybe a stunt double ;-)
Brielle, I predict you will be one of those kids in high school who is friends with everyone and able to adapt to whatever social situation she's put into. Very outgoing and perhaps a little wild!
Brielle, I predict you will be athletic. I see you playing basketball--maybe point guard with your short stature and quickness! I could see you playing and enjoying lots of team sports.
Brielle, I predict you will be very smart, but maybe a little less interested in academics than Raya. I see you and I having lots of discussions about you living up to your potential and staying focused on school rather than focusing on tons of extracurriculars ;-)
Brielle, I predict you will leave home for college, maybe even out of state. I can picture you saying you need to get out and see the world!
Brielle, I predict you will settle down and marry by age 30 and have 1 or 2 kids.
Brielle, I predict you will end up with size 7 shoe size. (Like how random this prediction is? haha)
Brielle, I predict you will play the drums in band...maybe the saxophone. Something loud!
Brielle, I predict you will be a more "sporty" dressing kid---ponytails and tennis shoes.
Brielle, I predict you will be the one who volunteers to keep Daddy company on hunting and fishing trips.
Brielle, I predict you will be a good singer.
So now this will be like a little "time capsule" that I can pull out years down the road and either discover that I can see the future and have psychic abilities, or at least provide a good laugh for us all when my predictions are completely wrong!! :-)
I think all of you should play this game too! What are some predictions you have for your own kids--any guesses?
