Congratulations, Alaina!!

...today, my brood and I went to Dayton to celebrate Alaina's graduation from law school. I'm so very, very proud of Alaina and all that she's been able to accomplish. It seems like yesterday that a self-conscious young undergrad came to visit me at lunch (while I worked OUTSIDE the home and could GO to lunch, mind you!), and told me over adequate Mexican food that she intended to go to law school, but was afraid that everyone would make fun of her. Now, four years later, this same girl has grown so much, and can laugh at any sorry ass who ever doubted her ability to do this. I knew she could do this, if she really wanted to do it. And she really wanted to do it, because I got to witness it today. And make her feel like the biggest nerd by joining the rest of the family and waving like a maniac at her when she sat down. And whooping for her as she got her diploma. Alaina, girlie, I'm so very proud of you, and can't wait to see what you do next! I love you!

Great. Just what the world needs, more lawyers. Actually, she may have to be called upon to get my sorry ass out of jail sometime, you never know. My dads a lawyer, and my bro wanted to be one...all I ever wanted was to avoid neding one. Congrats! And think of all the money you can donate to your bro next year for Diabetes Research.
