all of our house guests have finally made their way back to their own abodes.
while i was more than happy to have all of the extra love and excitement in the house, having house guests for 2 weeks is kind of tiring. and our house was nothing short of a mess. i still have leftover birthday food and decorations in the house and i’m pretty sure we lost a few drinking glasses. i’m also missing a pacifier which is very useful at nap times, and am in need of a closet clean-up for the little miss who is transitioning to larger sizes. while im doing a closet clean up for her i might as well do one for me, my drawers are badly in need of reorganizing so i can actually use them. le sigh.
so this week will be the cleaning the house/getting back organized week. it seems things have gotten out of hand and need to be tackled in the house. spring cleaning in the summer i guess.
this past weekend we had two birthday parties for lil mama to go to; saturday was a bowling alley party and sunday was a mini water park/park party. & it got me thinking of all the things i want to do with her…
i want to show her things and teach her about the world and how to be a well rounded productive member of society. she’s a social little butterfly already even at her tender age of 1 and i can’t wait to take her to museums, and art shows, and enroll her in dance classes and volleyball and all the other fun things that will give her exposure and broaden her way of thinking. i look at my peers and i worry about the future generations; all these kids are growing up on rap lyrics and violent video games and who is supposed to run the country and be role models for our children? while i work every day to be a better woman for my daughter to learn from, i know it takes a village to raise a child and i know i can’t shield her from the world. i just have to show her how to handle the situations she’ll encounter, and show her how to analyze what the media is portraying and how to decide what things to take with a grain of salt.
i love that little curly haired gift from God like you have no idea.
