Love and Laughter

Love and Laughter goes hand in hand when you have a child that is special. Shannon has this thing that when she gets a bath and you wash her feet she likes to have the bottoms of her feet tickled. She won't let you just wash her feet they have to get that tickle tickle in. When she first got in the jacuzzi tub she didn't like it but she has learned that when you have bubbles and turn the jacuzzi on it makes more bubbles. I look at her and I can just feel the love bursting up through me. She has such a good sense of humor and you can't help but laugh. She can dress herself pretty good but sometimes she can come up with a pretty wild ensemble. Her favorite thing to wear when it is cold is a camouflage jumpsuit. She loves to be outside and swing on her swingset or jump on the trampoline.She is in bed now and I don't have a hard time to get her in bed. I just tell her it is night night time and she grabs my hand and I take her to bed and cover her up. She has just started since Christmas wanting her baby doll in bed with her. well good night for now.

Fathers and Daughters

I wanted to talk a little about Shannon's father and his relationship with her. Although we have our other daughter whom we love very much. It is special with Shannon. We know that eventually our other daughter will be grown and go out on her own. Shannon on the other hand will be with us for a long time. Shannon has her daddy wrapped around her little finger. He tries not to show it but its there. It is only natural because although she is independant in a lot of ways but she depends on us alot too. She does something and looks at her daddy and smiles and you can't help but laugh. We treat her like the others but I think we do let her slide a little bit. She loves her daddy a lot and loves to ride on the four wheeler and the tractor with him. You can hear her laughing and it just makes want to you smile and laugh too. We wonder about her future alot about who will take of her when we're not here. But she has 2 sisters and 3 brothers that will do it. I somehow think it will be Melanie because she is closer to her. Anyway that is all in the future so I am not going to dwell on it right now. Well I am going to go I have to put Shannon to bed as she has school tomorrow.

Playing Hookey

Today the girls played hookey from school. The weather was to bad to let them go to school. It just amazes me that when you get them up for school they want to sleep but when they don't have to get up early that is when they want to get up. Shannon gets up when it first starting to get daylight and that is when I get my best last minute sleep. The first thing she likes to do is get something to eat. She loves to eat. I wish I could eat like her and not gain the weight. Right now she has this night gown that she likes to put on over her clothes. Well enough for now

A Long Night at Work

I am sitting at my desk here at work just waiting on time to start giving medications again. I just wanted to say that last month Shannon made student of the month and got her picture in the newspaper. I saw the award that she brought from school but I had no idea that it was going to be in the paper. I was coming to work last friday night when my niece called me and told me that Shannon's picture was in the paper. I stopped by the store and picked up a paper and sure enough she was there. It was neat to see her there. I put a new background on my blog so I am having to redo it. Shannon also has a new haircut. Her Dad trimmed her bangs and forgot and left the scissors on the bar. Needless to say Shannon preceded to cut her hair on the top of her head to where she almost didn't have any hair left. She makes me laugh, can be a pain in the backside but she is an original and I love her. She loves riding on the four wheeler and the tractor with her Daddy. She has a bicycle but I somehow don't think she is ever going to learn to ride it before she gets to bigt for it. She just now is getting into baby dolls. Well gonna go for now.

Just Everyday Stuff

I am sitting here in my car waiting till time to go in at work and I was thinking this night 1 week ago my husband called me to tell me that Shannon lost her first tooth. The tooth fairy came but it didn't mean anything to Shannon. In case any one is wondering about the you tube. It is a song called I'm a Gummy Bear. I took my daughter Melanie to see that movie The Waterhorse and they played that song on the screen before the movie came on. I like it so I found it and put it here. Oh yeah if you haven't seen the movie Waterhorse you should it is a good movie. I want to see the Chipmunks next. When was the last time you went to the movies? It is fun but expensive when you start buying all your snacks and drinks. Too bad we can't bring our own popcorn and drinks. I would have brought Shannon to the movie too but she wasn't feeling to good. Well gotta go for now.
