I Hope I Never Forget...

I hope I never forget...

... how Emi answers "yah!" to every question she is asked.

... how when I tell Emi that it is bed time she runs and hugs her dad in hopes he'll save her from her dreaded bed time.

... how when Emi is running away from me she turns around to see how close I am and then turns around and continues running.

... how she sings! oh does she sing!

... her sweet first words and sentences. "I wuv you." "eese (please)" "Honey!" "mas (more)" "Aqua (water)" "I want my mommy (only screamed from her bed when I first put her down).

... how she turns every object into a phone so she can talk on it and say "Ok, Honey! Bye Bye."

... how she does something so cute that my husband is nearly in tears over his love for her.

... how when I go to get her out of her crib in the morning she firsts grabs all her animals and hands them to me to bring them to our room with her.

... she cuddles on my lap like she never did when she was younger so we can spend some quiet moments together before she flips out when I put her in bed.

It can't get any better than this.

10 Things...

1. In case you are wondering, an EKG costs approximately $248- before insurance.

2. My daughter can spell two words! So what if it is m-i-c-k-e-y m-o-u-s-e!?!

3. I am still amazed by my ability to piss other drivers of on the road without any knowledge of what I have done!

4. Sarah, you know you are having a boy, right? I'm confused why you keep acting like you don't know!

5. Somebody told me the other day that they were okay with their ex husband illegally claiming their child for food stamp purposes because then she qualified for free lunch and she viewed that as a way he contributes. Um, unless he is funding the tax dollars that pay for the free lunch (which by definition he is not) then why is this person telling me that she is illegally obtaining free lunch for her daughter and stealing money from the taxpayers?! (aka: me and you!). I genuinely think people do not understand the term "public assistance."

6. I'm so glad I blog otherwise I would have completely forgot how I threw up outside of Younkers a few months ago! LOL!

7. I can't wait to go to the store and buy a mum and pumpkin! Oh, and to burn my "Autumn Wreath" Candle! (I'll regret this comment come December).

8. This is a PSA: Apparently it is not common knowledge that those little key pads on the side of garages cost about $25 and take 10 minutes to install. If you don't have one, you must get one!

9. In an effort to eliminate stress in my life, I am no longer coming up with ten things. But I think the sound of "10 Things" over "9 Things" so I am not changing the title of my post.
