The Last Day of the Year

It is hard to believe another year has already come and gone. This past year certainly had its share of ups and downs. We all have so much to be thankful for. My little girl has truly been a blessing in my life. My husband is alive and healthy. I could go on and on, but you get the point. I can only hope the new year ahead is better than the last because it was pretty good. :)

Okay, so a little about my baby. I mean big girl. Yesterday Summer started calling me "Mom." It was weird at first, but kind of cute. She also referred to Clint as "Dad" instead of "Daddy" - scratch that - "Daddio!" It is funny how she ended up calling Clint that. I don't know how it happened really, but I can remember a few cards from Josh and Amanda containing something similar - "Sir King Daddio!" Memories...

Summer did revert back to "Mommy" later in the day. I wonder what it will be today. She is really growing up so fast. I am trying to preserve her innocence, but it is hard in today's society. I must say I am very thankful for public broadcasting stations. They do provide educational shows that teach kids positive behaviors and a lot more. I couldn't imagine letting Summer watch Nickelodeon these days. Or, Cartoon Network for that matter. It is sad how the simple things in life have become so complicated. What happened to all the good cartoons? Nowadays the shows are just too grown up for little ones to watch. I guess with time, change comes too.

Time out.

Okay I'm back to finish this post off. Summer wants me to play with her. I might just see a day of playing house in my future. I think Lexie will be here in a little while. It should be fun with the three of us. Summer woke up and asked where Lexie was this morning. She hasn't been doing that lately, but today she did. She told me she wants to spend the night with Amanda and Lexie at Memaw's house. I doubt that will ever happen, but she is spending the night with Memaw tonight.

We are going to visit Clint's parents in a few weeks. My dad, Amanda and Lexie are coming with us. It should be a fun trip. We always get to eat at nice places in the casinos for free when we visit them!!! Plus we can go to the movies for free and I can play video poker!!!! Maybe I'll sit out of the movie and hit those poker machines!!! :) I can't wait.

Well, my little girl awaits me. Patiently. Thank God!!! Now maybe He can work on my patience. LOL

I hope you all have a great new year ahead of you! God bless us all!!!

P.S. She did start with "Mom" again this morning...followed by a few "Mommys." :)
