Kisses, Kisses and more Kisses … will Nana ever stop?
Dear Mom and Dad,
You know it is Thursday here, and you know what that means, Great Aunt Pam, is supposed to come visit after putting in a full week already, and having spend endless hours babysitting children, caring and helping them grow, well she then comes all the way to us, which means for her to travel quite a ways to come and care for me, and help me grow… and she does this because why? I know, it must be my princess charm… but since she has a wedding she is going to, she is coming on Saturday or Sunday this week, and last week Nana had to get an MRI, so I MISS YOU AUNT PAM, AND WE WILL SPEND TIME THIS WEEKEND PRINCESS BONDING.
Nana says, not to get to full of myself, but my Great Grandma Sally always says, if you got it flaunt it… and well, I definately have it goin’ on… at least with Nana, she seems to not be able to stop kissing and hugging on me. Nana claims it’s always for someone else… you know, she first kisses me about a hundred times and says, those kisses are from Mommy, and then pulls the same trick and says, oh and those are from Daddy. I swear she it’s all the California fam, the Mimi, Poppa and Aunt Nori and cuz’s there, then hits Texas, with Aunt Sam and Cody. She flips over to Washington and hits on Great Grandma Sally, and Grumpy… flies over the USA to PA and hits Grandmonster out there… GEEZ LOUISE… does Nana know someone in all the states? Sure seems like it… I hardly get any hand sucking time in, she is so busy kissing or hugging and CLAIMING its for somebody not here where they can have at me… and EVEN THEN, she slips in several for people that I do get to see, JUST NOT EVERY DAY!
So here I am, focused in for my brief time out from kissing and hugging to sit with my friend Quackers…
I am pretty intense when I am learning. And every second I am learning something.
Nana is reading to me already… silly huh, but she says, she doesn’t know for a fact that it helps me learn, but she figures, it just can’t hurt. And let’s face it she’s a total cheeseball.
I have more photos for you and daddy today, and I hope that they make you smile to see me… I am being so very good, and Nana is loving being able to make camp fun… she says the best things in life are hidden in some of the tough things we go through… sounds VERY OLD doesn’t it. She says, that is allowed since she is now a GRANDMOTHER! But she is sure that everyone has rough patches in the road they travel, but it is not about the rough patches but instead about what we find along the way – some gift, or memory, something that we get to keep and hold on to. She says, I won’t remember a speck of this time we are having together, so she is writing down a special story for me… not just by sending you my love letters, but she says, she has MY WHOLE STORY for me in a grown up version… that I will be able to keep. How I came to be here, and where I am from?
She says, really those are things for me to figure out…and seems to think I will all in my own time, but she still has all kinds of stories that have led to where we are right now… putting it all down for me to read when I am grown. You will get to see it on a different page of my website. Not Love Letters to Mom and Dad, but the in story that is ours and ours alone. See if you can find it… she says, her and poppy have had a real love story going on…and it will be going on long after she is not here anymore… because of Uncle Nick, you, Aunt Mikayla, Aunt Alyx, Aunt Allyssa and Aunt Arrianna and now ME!
So… Mom and Dad… I am happy to report another week is almost over and we are working towards a goal…. just like everyone in this house it seems… All my aunts working towards getting the degrees they want, and you and dad working towards goals… Nana says, this is what life is… one set of goals set, and reached, just in time to begin a new set…
My new objective for next week…see how many kisses Nana plants on me… if I guess correctly…. I win a million bucks and we all retire from our jobs, except me of course, I will stay a princess…and I will always be your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
Little Miss Serious…
