Chianna learned about George Washington in school today. I asked her what she learned about and we talked about how he was the 1st president. She said that she would want to switch places with him and change the rules so that parents had to do homework and not kids. The fact that we already had to do homework when we were kids didn't change her mind.
In a rare event, I made dinner tonight. I made fish for Chianna because she loves fish. As we were eating, I asked her if it was good. She said "not too much". In her matter of fact and honest way. Before I could ask what was wrong she finished her sentence with "because you don't cook good." (OUCH!) I started to get offended, but calmed myself and said that its ok to say you don't like it, but its not really nice to say I don't cook good. She just looked at me with a blank stare, shrugged one shoulder and said "well, it is". (ROUGH, HUH!?) Myke and I both commended her on telling the truth, but I don't think she functions any other way, which is a good thing, even when the truth hurts! LOL So now, here comes the real kicker. I asked, "well what could I have done different to make it taste better?" And she, again rather matter of factly said, "look at Daddy cook."
Yesterday Chianna decided to name our new car "Bumble Bee" (after the Transformer). She had previously named her little blue Mini car Bumble Bee, but she clarified that she changed her car's name to "Dinosaur". She then named Myke's car "Lion" and Baba & Pa's car is "Dr. Seuss"!
We hold you in our heart and touch you in our dreams. You are here each day with us, at least that's how it seems. We know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long. But remember child, we love you so and that will keep you strong. Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin... Because tonight, just as always, we blow you kisses in the wind. We promise you, darling, we're doing all that we can do. Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend. But for tonight, just as always, we blow you kisses in the wind. May our love wrap you up and hold you very tight. And let the angels bring the kisses that we send to you each night.
