Fall In Michigan!
Dear Mom and Dad,
So all my camper buddies are back in school. The professors at the University are no longer on strike, and you know what that means…. it is just Nana and I… singing songs… all week, all day, every day… including Saturday….exciting times in Michigan, AND the ‘all hands on Guillianna’ factor is NOW limited to two hands and a bunch of paws a good percentage of each day. Uncle Nick is at Culinary Arts school… (I say, let Nana show him how to cook, who needs a real chef, I mean if Nana can cook for 8 every night, then she can probably teach Uncle Nick… BUT NOOOOOOOOO he is gone chopping and dicing elsewhere… and Aunt Mikayla, well she goes to college every night but Friday, and isn’t home until after ten! Aunt Alyx, Aunt Allyssa and Aunt Arri about the same, two of them even have Saturday classes and the other two work Saturday’s. SO IT IS NANA – HER TWO HANDS, AND the 28 PAWS (not so helpful paws) combined with lots and lots of singing at Camp Nana. Did you know there are bottle making songs, and diaper changing songs, there are spit up songs and songs I don’t really begin to understand there are dogs barking songs, and the baby is growing hair songs. If you want I can jot down the lyrics for you both, incase you are bored or need something to do in your spare time…. ‘really’ you’ll love em…. and when she sings them with a cold… oh… it’s just awesome I kid you not. It’s the kind of thing that can get a princess thinking….
and I have been – I have been thinking about this whole “school thing” and figure if no one is comin’ to my sing fest of a ‘party’…. then I will go to their ‘party’!
So… here I am… fixin’ to go to school with the campers….
What? You kidding me?
Everyone has one of these?
For what? Books?
But I don’t read!
And my books are so tiny, with tiny pictures… so what’s up with the book bag?
Come on… if I can carry my own books I can go?
I think I can… I think I can….
Look at me mom and dad… I am ready!
I could do this school thing… hey, do they sing to you at school? Like all day… everyday?
Lectures you say…?
Hmmmmmm is that like singing?
Aunt Arri says, maybe I should wait until I am a bit bigger, and can use pencils and crayons and stuff like that…
I can figure out how to do or use most everything…
I am not the type to give up easily…
Today I spent all day in my jammers… and am feeling much better than I was. I am able to sleep a bit longer without having a hard time laying flat! So that is great news. I played with the campers and loved the HANDS ON factor. We played and the “black beast” caught me smiling away…
After thinking about it all… I guess hanging with Nana at camp is probably a better idea, besides… I figure I would really rather wait and let you take me to a school for princess’ where there are no LECTURES, I think I will let those wait till I am a big camper.
But do you think you can pick a school with a slide, and toys… and lots and lots of crayons and stuff. One other thing… how about you and daddy carry my book bag for me?
Now that is a good idea, and I will hang out here practicing my princess wave and we can look forward to when you two can take me to school when we are all together again. Cool beans! I can put up with Nana’s singing – I am after all ‘Army Strong!’
Until tomorrow, please know I am as cute as ever, and as always am your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
(This is what Nana calls, TOTALLY ‘TUCKERED’ OUT!)
