My Daughter

I have a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I am a very proud mom of two children and I am proud of both but my daughter....She is a go getter! She loves her dad and will go and do anything he wants to do. In fact, he hung the moon..up until recently. She is becoming quite girlie in her ways. I blame my dearest friend's daughter~Bailey. Since she has come into my Sara's life she has taught her to care about what she wears, how she looks, not to leave without lip gloss, etc. It really tickles me. When I was her age I was very foofoo frillie but as I aged like when I turned 22~ I became me~no frills just me. When I put my make up on in the am~I don't check it until the next morning when I put it on again! I am hair challenged~thankfully my hair curls but now Sara cares and I am not much help. Well whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks~I am now learning! Now when the boys go off camping for Scouts we have girl weekends and we do nails and hair. I love it! No, not the foo foo stuff Just spending fun time with my child and making good and happy memories~or at least I hope. I know being a parent fails to come with an instruction guide and I know I will fail both of my children many times over in their life. But,I know there are some things that I do that are right and I have to say thanks to the people that taught me~my parents! Challenge for today or tomorrow: Do something special with your kids or grand kids~Go make memories and have fun!

I must say there is nothing quite like having a daughter! Mine is grown but we still have some fun times together. Sounds like you and your daughter do also.

I raised two daughters. I was blessed to be a stay at home mom. We have a lot of treasured memories. And now I have a 4 year old grandson who I am blessed to be able to babysit each day as his parents work. I thought raising our two girls was such a joy but I am having more fun with my grandson. He is truly GRAND. We are building memories each day as we spend our days together.
