On a Saturday morning, HG and I were laying in my bed, snacking on Spiffer’s nuts and bolts. I was watching HGTV, and she was playing games on my phone. She said, “Mama, this is the life.”
She told Peggy that she likes riding a new horse because it’s fun to learn how they work.
She asked me if the battery on my phone went down a lot. When I said yes, she took my phone and showed me how to double click the home button and slide up on all the apps to close them and save battery. Wow?!
She LOVES to go to EDA (after school care) and begs to go all the time. “Mama, send me to EDA one more day, and then you could go get a massage!”
I said I wanted to order a cheeseburger, and she said wistfully, “Nothing’s as it seems.”
She and Daddy built a fort to protect her from an over-excited Manning at the pool.This is life at Grandma’s…And this is life after a day at the pool and Grandma’s (on the couch)…And then she collapsed into bed…First Redbirds gameShe initially said she didn’t want to talk to Rocky, but he flirted with her and got her close!She requested a curly ponytailAn after school treat…To make spelling word practice more fun, we found a Boogie Board.
