***I have been trying to get this post up all morning/day but have been glued to the tv watching the news about the horrible tradgedy that took place in Colorado overnight. My mind can not process such grief. This is just too much for this mother to comprehend. So trust in God I must because there is no explanation for this unspeakable crime. Two things I am sure of: 1.)He will be brought to justice. 2.)I will never attend another midnight showing as long as I live.***
Let's start again shall we cause I really only like to talk about happy things in this space. Oh and let's talk about how the summer is flying too. It's hot. Like really hot. We are stuck inside so that is making it hard to accomplish what we want. So far, there is no end in sight to this drought/heat wave. It has taken all the motivation and inspiration right out of me. Probably why I am not in this space much at all. Nothing to talk about is the other reason. Wait, happy things. Ah yes. Next topic.
Last night I spent some mommy and me time with just my sweet Annabel. It never happens really and I thought that now is a good time as any. I took Faith with me Tuesday night when I got my hair done so Annie was feeling a bit left out. I promised her that Thursday night would be ours together. She was over the moon excited. In fact her reaction to this news made her shout louder than when we told the kids we were going to Disney in the Fall.
What a lesson I learned. All kids really want is time with their mommy and daddy.
My sweet Annie. I love you all the way to God. How is it that you will be going to kindergarten in one month? I am in some serious denial.
Here is what we did...
First, we went to Claire's. I told her I would buy her a new pair of earrings.
SO many decisions! Those earrings with the mustaches are a riot!
After almost 40 minutes of looking at just about everything in the store and begging me to buy her lipgloss, here is what she decided on....
Hello Kitty earrings with 'staches. I die. Her big sister was soooo jealous.
Next, we went next store to Bath and Body. I let her pick out all of our soap scents.
I asked her if there was anything else she wanted to do before we headed home. She looked up at me with those big blue eyes and asked if we could get a cookie. So we did.
A plam tree cookie on a stick. Good choice my girl.
I look forward to many more times spent with each one of my girls. I forget how much they need it. How much I need it too. Annie was so unbelievably happy after our date. She has not stopped telling me how much fun she had. I really want to know my girls. Like really know them. What makes them happy...what floats their boat. Ya know what I mean. We are raising the next generation and I don't know about you but I want them to be Christ loving, respectful, non-entitled, overall happy human beings. That can't be to much to ask, right? It all starts with us as parents. What we do or don't do...to them/for them, teach them/don't teach them, time we spend/or don't, and on and on. Talk about pressure!!!
Ok, enough blabbering. Hubby is home and he is taking us out to dinner tonight. He says cause "you deserve a break." Such sweetness! Well that, or he wants something ;)
