Say it ain’t so?
Oh how I miss my little girl!!!

Should of put duct tape on her back then Is what I’m thinkin today! Oh how cute is that …

Nana’s girl
playing a straw,
eating little tomatoes rather than chocolate
drinking the bestest ice water in the world
if made by the Nana~
Now hits
11 years old!
The greatest thing
if there is one
about her growing up is
she is a kid
of wonderment
great kindness
has tremendous passion~
she still knows the Nana makes the bestest ice water
in the world!!!
she is
She is a kid that is bright, funny, resilient
true to herself, with a mind of her own.
Much of who she is today at 11 is the result of great parenting by Joan
“the mama”
the everything that gives her balance and structure
reasons to awaken with a smile
attitude when needed to be all that is needed at all times, cos my girl is a warrior of gentle spirit.
if pushed
she has a look that could stop a hippopotamus at fifty yards.
You remember the look?
a smile
that melts my heart
the sun
back then
we are still smiling
as she grows
and loves and learns
let’s us know of all that she thinks.
the thought
for this day
cos’ all too quickly we realize we should have
used duct tape to their feet and their little bodies to keep them little
and short and small enough to carry on our hips
and tickle
and cuddle
and just
you know
hold and play with
like little bitty puppies and such.
she’s growing
developing a mind of her own
that is going to make us
have to lock her in a closet soon enough
recruit D’Vante to sit on the front steps
up there in Maryland just in case some
boy want to come around and ask for a date.
He should be a strong enough deterrent
for any such nonsense that any such boy might just have on his mind
when it comes to dating issues.
D’Vante is on board
when it comes to his “little sister Olivia”
plans to “step in”
at a moments notice
I’m thinkin that will be better than
sitting there with a shotgun!
today I’ll remember when she rode her first pony, and then wanted to take it home,
saw her first sunset
got hit with the first jellyfish
as a little one
realizing that
up in Maryland
she is out of school
cos’ it is a
National Olivia Day
she is probably dancing to Paramour
Just having the best day “evah”
with the bestest Mom of the world.
She will feel the love of the Nana
at a distance
I’ll say
Happy Birthday Baby
in a bit
but for now
I’ll blow some bubbles
look for Fred The Lizard
and remind him
It’s Olivia’s birthday!
One thing I know
kids are a lot like wet cement; whatever falls on them tends to stay there
unless u have some good grit to or heavy rain to wash it all clean.
the great news is
if you place your best intentions in and on your children, then let spirit and the Creator
fill in
they will do alright if they are willing to try
Olivia is a young one
“everyone should just do their best, leave others alone and accept them as they are, and not judge”.
From the words of babes,
my girl.
Into the light,
better wear your shades
Olivia is so bright and her light within
might just burn your eyes!~
Shine on baby
Nana and Mom are right here
Ice Water is waitin!
Wherever you are today
wish my girl a happy one
you can be sure
she is already in it and having it
running like a pony
feeling the wind in her hair
Blessings to all who gather here
on this most remarkable day.
Whatever they grow up to be, they are still our children, and the one most important of all the things we can give to them is unconditional love. Not a love that depends on anything at all except that they are our children.”
