Riley turned 10 on Monday! I cannot believe I have a 10-year-old. 🙂
She celebrated with a sleepover (the five girls were loud and fun), a Justin Bieber cake, pizza, and ice cream. Her dad and I got her an iPod touch, and she is thrilled. She has already downloaded Angry Birds and Ninja Fruit. And she and I are having a blast with FaceTime. It’s a cool feature from Apple, and I look forward to using it more. She thinks it’s hilarious to FaceTime me when she’s in the kitchen and I’m in the living room.
I love that she is technologically savvy but not too savvy. We keep a close eye on what she sees and hears online and what she plays. She doesn’t know any passwords to buy or download anything. And it’ll be that way for a long time.
When Riley was born, she made my life infinitely better, and my love for her is one that can never be measured.
Body Jam was fun, even if I felt like a bumbling idiot half the time. I finally caught on–at the end. But it was a good way to work up a sweat. And the music was by the original artists…no techno remakes, which I hate in the other classes, which is why I take my iPod anytime I’m at the gym.
I’m meeting my new running partner at 7:30 in the morning for a run. I hope she’s not too disappointed in how slow I am. After our run, I plan to head to the gym for an upper body workout; that way Riley will get a chance to play with some other kids, too.
Today has been pretty good–bought groceries after the gym.
