My oldest daughter drew this lovely picture of the two of us. I usually send this stuff to my soldier - he gets a kick out of "how the world looks through the eyes of two little girls". Tonight I thought I'd share it with my blog readers as well. I also have loads of books that she's written. Already. Starting from age 4. Yessiree, we have a mini-me in the works!
I shared these silly stories with my soldier today on the phone. Its always good to hear his big bold laugh. I sometimes wonder if the soldiers around him enjoy his laugh like I do...
But I digress! (Where was I? Oh yeah!)
Being a mommy is definitely an adventure!
About a week ago, the kids and I were at an ice cream store and I was standing at the counter looking over all of the fresh baked cookies and ice cream selections. Little one was standing to my left, Older child to my right. Now, I’m constantly running my fingers through the little one's soft hair and that’s what I was doing. I wasn’t looking at her… I was drooling over the sweets. I stopped messing with her hair long enough to point something out to my other daughter. Then I went back to running my fingers through her hair again. Suddenly, the couple standing to my left are staring at me and giggling. I look at them and smile and they’re about in hysterics at this point. I couldn’t figure out what was so funny. They finally pointed out to me that I was running my fingers through their daughter’s hair, not my little one's. My daughter had walked away to look at something else! That little girl’s hair was just as soft! Thank goodness they thought it was funny too.
And speaking of little girls, I have to share this one with you too. One of my co-workers, who is also my old neighbor, sent an email tonight that his grandmother died. Now he has twin daughters that are the same age as my oldest daughter. They have been friends with her since babyhood. So, he is telling the twins that his Grandma died and they were sad. To reassure them, he said that Grandma was with God now. One of the girls looked perplexed and said, “You mean God died too?”
