Funny Kaylinn Stories


Story #1 happened 2 weeks ago. We went to Wednesday night church, and as usual I bathed the kids before we left because we get home too late. I set out a cute dress for Kaylinn to put on because she LOVES dresses and skirts. When we got home Kaylinn jumped out of the car and dress jumped with her. It was then that I noticed she wasn't wearing any PANTIES!!! I was mortified to say the least, and I asked her about it. Her response was, "Don't worry, mom, I didn't show anyone." WHAT?????? Never did I think to remind her about underwear, just assumed that was a known part of the wardrobe. I'll be paying for kids in her Bible class to go to therapy for years.

Story #2 happened last week. Kaylinn was invited to spend the night with her cousin, Audrey. She was stoked to say the least. In all her excitement she told me that she wish Ashley (her aunt) was her mom. I just kind of smirked and asked her "Why?". Her reply was, "Because she is SO beautiful!"....then followed it with, "but your cute too." I just almost peed my pants laughing. I wish I could video tape these moments when they happen.

Christmas at the Z

I am very blessed to have a couple of parents who have blessed me with a new computer. My progress has been ever so slow getting to know my new pal, as I do not consider myself a technical person, and I've found myself in the past neglecting certain things like Bible study, dishes, laundry and oh the children!....soooo in an effort to not get consumed, I set a time limit during the day when Bible study is done, kids are playing nicely, and the house is not a complete disaster. All in all I have about 5 minutes.

My real hope is that I can spend some time at night gaining some proficiency with my new buddy in hopes that it will not take me as long to get things done. Still trying to figure out how to get my photos organized in Aperture how I want them and how to the pictures to my blog and facebook. I get really frustrated in that I want to be able to do what I want, when I want to do it, and without much I'm just sounding like my kids!!!!

My first post back happened this past Christmas. My grandmother held a Christmas party at the new chimp exhibit at the zoo. As always we had a great time being together. I love my Meemaw so very much! She has been such a godly example in my life, and I owe a lot of great childhood memories to she and my grandfather. I can only pray I am more like her, and I do believe every year she gets more beautiful!
