BIG DAY TODAY!… GG-MA SHARYN IS HOME!
Dear Mom and Dad…
Today is a very BIG day… it’s kind of like…. LET THE PARTY BEGIN… everyone is comin home… Great Grandma Sharyn and Great Papa Alan arrived yesterday afternoon and tonight the love fest begins… after spending a few days or so visiting with GG-ma and Papa..YOU AND DADDY WILL BE HERE. Then, my special party with my SOLDIER MOM AND DAD “day”…. woo woo. I get to show daddy off to all your relatives mom, tell him not to be nervous… I plan on being the focus of everyones attention, so he need not worry… It’s so exciting… and don’t forget… I HAVE A HUGE, HUGE secret present for you and daddy… but HAVE SWORN ALL MY PEEPS IN THE KNOW TO KEEP IT PRINCESS PRIVATE TIL I GIVE THE GO AHEAD… and to be honest I think I might wait a while just to make you squirm.
Nana says, I need to practice at making my parents squirm… it’s what kids do…. and parents need all the practice they can get before I start freaking you out by riding bikes, jumping on trampolines, or roller blading, you will worry, and wonder, and then just when you think your okay with me doing stuff, I’ll be dating… so this little mystery suprise is just a practice run… What day do you want me to share it with you? We could wait until you go to the airport and leave for your special tour of duty. That might be a way…. Or we give it to you after my princess party day… because we all know that I can’t do it on Sunday IT is an ALL ABOUT ME DAY! I could give it to you when you arrive, but then I can’t keep you wondering… THEN how much practice would you be getting at the squirming thing… ?
I think I just have to wait and see… and when the time is right, Nana will help me spring it on you.. and you will smile all the way to Iraq AND BACK. HINT…. IS IT BIGGER THAN A GUILLIANNA? Nana would have said, is it bigger than a bread box, which totally dates her since no one has a bread box anymore… but the answer to your one and only clue, is … yes the gift is bigger than a GUILLIANNA.
So let me tell you about my day, I ate great today, and was no where near as much a fuss bucket as I was yesterday… MAYBE IT IS CAUSE NANA IS AN OLD OLD SOFTIE.., are you ready for this mom, she GAVE Aunt Arri the day off school… and I played with her for hours. Aunt Arri got a stay at home with the cool kid day, and Nana got tons of stuff done she had been needing to do. Everyone got what they wanted, but can you believe Nana let her miss. The High School had won some big basketball thingy and is going to Lansing to play in the State finals, so the day was to be reduced, and mostly pep stuff, and only fifteen minute classes…so Poppy and Nana cut her a break… I SAY THANK YOU… cause I think I got the best end of the deal.
Nana slipped a bit tonight, only took a couple photos when we first arrived, she had NONE of Great Papa and I, shame on her… so she put this one up from the last time he and I had dinner….
I am telling you, the woman is slipping….. but I have a feeling… there are lots more photos to come with these two… they love having me around… but who doesn’t. Back to the story of my day….
We stayed home and played, very cool…and then, we had dinner with Grandma and Papa! We went for Italian food… and yes, I was adorable. Too bad… Nana didn’t capture much of the night in images… I think she was pre occupied.
This weekend we have so much to do before you come, Nana and Poppy have boxes and files to move from the basement, and Nana a doctors appointment, and Great Aunt Pam is coming out too. We have to get some things to the caterer for the party and finsh putting all the small details of my special day together…. so I will fill you in as the weekend goes with my Saturday and Sunday posts…. Mostly I will be thinking how in just a few days we will be together again. I wonder, will you think I have grown? I hope you and dad have saved up a BILLION kisses for me. I know I love getting them, and if you want, I can always share my fist with you … I find it incredibly awesome to suck on my left hand… NON STOP, and cannot figure out why no one else wants to?
As you saw…Dinner out was awesome, but Nana was a little side tracked or ‘AFFECTED’ by the fact that Poppy – was thought to be her son… not once, not twice but three times… all different people… and yes, they all guessed she was my Nana. I am now officially saving to buy a T-shirt or sweatshirt for Poppy that says, “I’m with the old lady, and NO she is not my MOM“. Nana says, it’s okay… she says she has earned everyone of her wrinkles and the “old” look was carefully and diligently earned in bringing up her six kids… Nana also says, men are lucky they tend to look better with time! Mr. half full, POPPY says, at least they didn’t think you were the Great Grandparent at the table… so that’s a good thing… WELL, POPPY, I am thinking Nana would trade places with GG-ma any day she is in far better shape and soooo pretty. And Nana, she doesn’t fool me one bit, IT BUGS HER that Poppy can pass for Uncle Nick’s brother. Hey, when did I say Poppy could share my space?
ISN’T THIS ALL ABOUT GUILLIANNA? www.guillianna.com? Hold the phone… now I could be getting a little sidetracked too with Nana!
COUNT DOWN TO YOUR LEAVING FORT HOOD…. IS EXACTLY FOUR DAYS! I will have my fourth Princess-versary with you! I have four Aunts here in the house with me, and there are four cats. (all Nana needs is one more dog and she would have four of those too, but Mr. Griff at 190lbs counts as two, so we can say there are four.And Nana wants to shave nearly ‘4’ decades of aging and wear and tear off herself… so THE NUMBER FOR TODAY IS FOUR!
Loving you both very much, and let’s keep it on the down low about the entire wait staff thinking Nana is Poppys MOM! As a princess, I am compassionate that way… and until I can get that shirt paid for, well, we don’t want to push the old woman over the edge… she’s fragile. I do however fear it will be a very long time before you catch her in ANY photos now….
As always, your little princess, Little Miss Adorable, Hugs and Kisses to you both!
