B is for Braden

Braden is my youngest, turns 7 next week.

  • He is a list writer, it's his birthday party next weekend, and he has been planning it for 2 months. Lists, food, people, games, things to buy.
  • He loves drawing and making things, I'm forever finding things he's made floating around, and scissors, paper, tape, etc, left behind.
  • We had interviews last night, and the teacher is very impressed, as are we, with his progress. He is reading at a 10 - 10 1/2 year level, although not with complete understanding, partly because books at that level are geared for children with a more mature mind, therefore covers topics not relevant to a 6/7 year old.
  • He is a very social bunny, has a huge pool of friends, always someone new coming home, imagine the difficulty in narrowing his birthday list down to 7.
  • Entertains himself well, enjoys a wide range of activities.
  • It's not all good, he has a huge temper. He's a bit like that girl with the curl. When he's good, he's very good, and is very even tempered, but when he loses the plot, boy, does he let go!


I've been doing some blog hopping, and found this and thought it would be fun to do, and would give me some journalling at the end. Some days it may be a list, some days it may be a total post around 1 word. Feel free to join in, leave me a note if you do, I'd love to read more about you.

So, today I'll start with A.... (really, hah, who would have guessed???)

A is for Angela, that's me, surprise, surprise!
A is for Abba, some music I love
A = ache, I have one in my hand
and for afternoon, when I seem to get a burst of energy, and for Aunty, of which I am to 6 nieces and nephews.

That's all I can think of for A, (I may add to it later) but I have already started some of the others, for future posts.
