Yesterday, I was picking Emma up from a birthday party. As we were leaving, I reminded her to say 'thank you' to the girl's parents. The dad smiled and said, "Oh, and thank you for being so, um, so... excitable!"   "Excitable," I said?  The mom must have seen the look of horror on my face, and she quickly said, "Oh, no, she's just... well, she's not shy at all is she?"  I smiled weakly, and led Emma out the door.

On the way to the car, I asked Emma what she had done at the party. Skipping ahead of me, pigtails bouncing, she yelled over her shoulder "I had FUN!!!"

Well, there you have it. I can only hope she wasn't doing cartwheels through their living room like her brother would have.

Funny. You'd probably really rather not have all the details : )

Oh ... that would be my kids. Excitable! Fun! Filled with Energy! Passionate!

Isn't it GREAT? I wouldn't know what to do if I had any shy, quiet, boring, children.

I'd agree. The less you know the better. She is adorable!

She could be Pipi Longstocking with those freckles and pigtails. Way adorable.

What a gorgeous little freckled face she has. She sounds like a lot of fun. :)
