Last night, on my 11th wedding anniversary, I spent hours in urgent care with my oldest daughter. I stayed awake much on the night watching over her. This morning I woke to a happy little girl again.

Today I celebrate her.

Why bother teaching children the proper way of saying a word. Personally, I’d prefer to wake up in the morning and have a big cup of “fawkey” to wake me up before I start the day. Daughter is starting to put real words into sentences now, but I miss the days, you know last month, when potatoes were “Toe Pees” and coffee was “fawkey”.

She still says down-da when she no longer wants to be in her highchair and she says climb when she wants me to pick her up, but lately her cutest thing is saying

“Ein tine” when you draw a picture of a face with hair sticking straight up. This of course is from the Baby Einstein videos. I wonder if she will be disappointed when she discovers Einstein was not just a stick figure’s face on a children’s video.

So I say grab a cup of fawkey and learn a few things from your children for a change.
