Another Reason to Blog

Or journal or scrapbook or write notes on the backs of photos.

Brian had to work late last night, so I let Sammie lay in bed with me until she fell asleep.  I asked her what her favorite part of the day was.  She thought for a minute and said, "Watching a movie."


I said, "What about playing in the garden for two hours and planting and swinging on the swing set? What about a chips and salsa snack on the deck?  What about having your first 'quiz' for school and getting a hundred on it?  What about playing fishes and scuba in the bathtub for 45 minutes?  What about a special popcorn snack with Chase and Ava before bedtime? What about you beating me at math games? What about taking a walk this morning to our special rock place?  What about you and Chase picking cosmos for me from the neighbor's garden?"

She giggled and said, "Well, I guess my favorite was the chips and salsa.  And, the quiz.  And, playing in the garden."

Now, THAT'S more like it.

This is why we MUST write these things down. Somewhere.  SOMEHOW!!  Otherwise, all we'll remember is how tired we were.  And, all they'll remember is watching movies.  



  1. WHAT??!!??! No mention of talking to Aunt Tracy on the phone? By you OR her. I'm totally offended. (I guess we're "even" now!)

    Love you!

  2. I get that kind of answer all the time too!

  3. Hound me about writing entries. Just need to get started so I can build some momentum! I already have a bunch of story ideas as well as entries from my old-school journal.
