That Lilly sure loves her Mama. She’d follow Hallie anywhere. And quite the little poser, huh? Hallie says that girl sure knows how to strike a pose. πŸ˜‰ But then, so does Hallie. Love those little squishes.

Hope y’all had a fabulous day. Mine was good mostly. The morning was a little rough, but the day improved, so all is well. Mondays are usually difficult anyway, right? Anyway, you guys have a wonderfully restful evening. No wierd dreams like last night, ok? Maybe too much spice for supper? Hmmmmm.

Oh, and I took Hallie to meet her teachers today. Man! I cannot get over the fact that I have a seventh grader on my hands. It hurts my feelings. She was 2 just a few months ago. *sniff* I blinked and now she’s about to be a teen? Wha? Waaaaaaaaaa! πŸ˜₯ I’ll be ok. After a box or two of tissues. I certainly don’t mind getting older. I mean, it beats the alternative. And I don’t feel 43 anyway, so age matters not. I’ll always be about 15 to 25ish. I’m still a kid, or at least I act like one. Some of my friends act all “grown up”, and I’m sure they’re thinking I need to grow up, but I don’t care. This is me. Take it or leave it. I don’t want to act like I’m an old person. Mama’s…well, older than me, obviously, and she certainly doesn’t act like it most of the time. She acts like a kid, too. I say, be yourself, no matter what. Folks are always going to think something about how you act, how you look, how you dress, whatever. Who cares. You are not living for those people. This is your journey and you should just be comfy being you. Because you’re so good at it, and nobody can be as good at it as you. Ok, enough of this mush. I’m off to bed early. Got to bed late again last night, just a bit.

Love ya! *squish*

    1. Thanks Sarah. Yes, Lilly is a miniature long haired dachshund. She is such a sweetie pie. Quite the little personality she has! Makes us belly laugh daily! I know you loved your little furball! πŸ˜‰


      1. I know, right?! We should have named her Rabbit or Bunny, because she hops like one. It’s sooooo cute! Yes, love those doxie personalities! Can’t help but love ’em. But then, I don’t think I ever met a dog I didn’t love. They are just like children. Every personality is sooo different but absolutely lovable. Our rescue dog, Buddy (1/2 golden retriever, 1/2 golden lab) is 100 lbs. and still thinks he’s a little lap puppy. He’s so protective, but sweet and loving, cute and funny, loves his belly rubs, and he’s sooo smart. πŸ˜‰ Love my cats, too, but I think I’m much more of a dog person. Don’t tell the kitties. πŸ˜‰


  1. I was only talking with a fellow blogging friend recently about age and numbers. But there I was thinking you were a young twenty something… Oh but you are,,, nice post and both of them are posers. … I have just done the post ‘Growth’, showing my Ellie at different stages of her life..So I know what you mean….


    1. Haha! Oh yes, I’ll never grow up! I don’t think I could ever act like a grown up. πŸ˜‰ I’m a kid till the end. How’s a 43 year old supposed to act, anyway? Oh, yes, the growth thing. I’ll have to check that post out in a minute. I’m sooooo far behind keeping up with my friends. I am pitiful. Every time I look at Hallie’s growth chart hanging on her bedroom wall, I want to cry. What happened to that short, chubby baby with all the baby fat? And those cute little short legs and diaper bootie. Miss those sweet slobbery kisses. πŸ˜‰ She’s so tall and thin now. Nearly as tall as me and I’m 5’11”. So sad. I wish time went by just a little bit slower. πŸ˜₯
      *squish* Hug and smooch that baby and that sweet wife of yours every single day. Life is so precious and goes by in a blink.
