The Princess Proclaims.....

"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"

"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."

"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."

"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"

"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"

"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

Breakfast, pool, lunch, nap, pool, dinner, bed.......

That has been the schedule of our summer days. My sweet husband works two jobs so that I can stay home with our daughter, and enjoy this wonderful, laid back schedule with her. We we lucky enough to have a pool when I was a kid, and I remember how much fun we had playing in it with our neighborhood friends. I'm going to go back to work when The Princess goes to school (not until 2010) so until then I am enjoying all of this precious time I get to spend with her. Following Stellan's story has reminded me not to take any of this time with The Princess for granted. So I'm off to hug my daughter and tell her how grateful I am that God chose us for each other.

Good Intentions

I really had good intentions to try and maintain this blog. Some days we are spending so much time in the pool and playing that I forget to post anything. And other days it is just that I find myself with little to say and quite a bit of frustration with my little girls behavior. Then something happens to send me a wake-up call. A lady I know only online is dealing with a serious health issue with her baby boy, Stellan. He is in the hospital, fighting a condition known as SVT (where his heart beats at abnormally high rates) and doctors have not been able to stop it medically. My heart is aching for Stellan...and for his family. So I think about my little girl and how what we are going through with her behavior right now is really so minor compared to a mom and dad watching their little boy deteriorate as badly as little Stellan has since Saturday. Pray for this sweet little boy and his family....please.

Prayers for Stellan

seems like for the last few weeks, The Princess has regressed in her night time behavior. Now she has pretty much always given me a hard time about going to bed, but we had gotten to the point that more times than not, bedtime had limited if no crying. Not lately. Oh, the drama! It happened around the time she turned 4 1/2. Coincidence? I don't know. What I do know is that by her bedtime, especially on the the weekends when it is just her and I all day, I NEED her to go to bed and my patience is limited. Patience is NOT one of my virtues, although I know it is a good one to have. It has been a struggle to say the least. But, as many have pointed out to me, this too shall pass. Quickly, I hope.
