    Please indulge me, I am so excited and have to tell you...this has been a long time coming!

    Today our “baby” got the job she seemed destined for. After a lifetime of relentless practicing at it, she can ARGUE and now she actually gets paid for it! :-D

    She was selected to be the new deputy prosecuting attorney in the criminal division for our county, which is one of the largest in Washington state. Most of her arguments will now take place in front of a judge, and hopefully her arguments with dad and I will become only a distant memory! :-D

    So if your babies are still young, and they drive you to the brink at times with their arguments and tenacity, please remember this: they are just practicing!;-)

    Awesome! You have every right to be proud! Just remember part of the credit goes to you, you allowed her to practice her debating skills!

    Tell her congrats!!!
