We are heading toward spring… I think!
Hanging out in Detroit… this is good sleeping weather…. if nothing else. And I am told, that the TIGERS ARE IN SPRING TRAINING… so… I think I will jump on board that band wagon, simply because, it is rumored that with spring training, comes better weather… the kind you can play baseball in. OUTSIDE… AND up to now… the only thing to do outside would have required ski’s,skates and or some form of de-icer.. not that I would ever have seen any of that, due to the ‘NANA LAYER sydrome’ I have been experiencing. I mean to tell you, the term “bundle her up”… is almost frightening to me… layer after layer, after layer…hey news flash Nana, those little dimpled things… they are my joints, they are made to bend, and move… and my little legs and arms are “bundled up” so well I look like one of the dog’s play toys… a little circle thing with appendages sticking out to carry me by.
Look at my PRINCESS CHEEKS….
No need to be jealous about not being here….. look at it, it’s a blah day…
Dear Mom and Dad,
Well today it rained. It rained more, and then… it rained more. We are supposed to be heading towards spring, and if the saying is true that APRIL showers bring May flowers, then I expect you may have trouble finding me through the billions of flowers that should be popping up. And if APRIL showers bring May flowers, well… what do March showers bring besides the soupy mess in Nana’s back yard. ITS PRETTY GROSS, so gross that I don’t even think that your army boots would do. I HOWEVER HAVE THE PERFECT PRINCESS EQUIPMENT FOR THE JOB… and once again, NO DADDY YOU CANNOT HAVE A PAIR TO WEAR IN IRAQ! But if I thought Mommy’s First Sergeant would let her wear them you can bet I would send her a pair…
So, this morning was a special treat. Since I went to see the cardiologist on last Thursday, my original appointment for Tuesday March 10 was cancelled. Pops had to have his staff at work cancel and move his patient’s from the morning so that he could take me to Ann Arbor for the special visit, but when we learned last Wednesday night that the appointment was moved to Children’s Hospital in Detroit, and on that particular day he was in surgery, well it was too late to move his patient’s back on for TODAY. So – sorry to all his staff and patients for the mix up… but it was my INSURANCE that caused the problem. THE GOOD NEWS is… I spent time with him this morning (and he doesn’t attempt singing while short of breath!… which is a very cool thing… hint hint Nana)… and I gave him the “total PRINCESS works”. It is kind of like when you take a car to the car wash and they ask you what package you want… the outside wash, inside vaccuum, under carriage etc. THE WORKS… Well my Poppy deserves the WORKS right? From getting up early at 0400 hours (and he loves that we SPRUNG FORWARD AND LOST AN HOUR),to eating breakfast with him, and the slightly odiferous gifts little princess’ can produce after breakfast! But he was a trooper… and didn’t even bat an eye… or turn a nose… He then was off to work and the rest of my day was ho hum… not much to say or write about. But in honor of his special care and his efforts to be there with me at the cardiologist I WORE HIS FAVORITE SWEATSHIRT TODAY! Go Tigers! (as if – I really cared, but they seem to make him smile, so … I am – all – for smiles, being cute and adorable so here it goes again… Go Tigers! Win one for Poppy!)
I am loving you both – with all of my heart… I am being soooooo good, and Nana… well she took a lot of pics with me sleeping because it is hard for her to take photos when everyone is at work and she cannot hold me and the camera… so… later when everyone comes home, I just might sneak in a late night snap shot with me awake so you can see my beautiful eyes…
Love always, Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
