Welcome to my blog. . . .

I am pessimistict, my husband hates it and sometimes it takes away from the happiness I have all around me and so. . . this blog is dedicated to finding something good in each day and being optimistic.

The good, the bad and the ugly. . . .


As I walk into her room and her baby doll is asleep in her toy oven I think," what am I teaching her." As she comes out of my bedroom with mascara EVERYWHERE again I think," what am I teaching her." As we found her in her room trying to go pee in her pretend kitchen pot I thought,"what am I teaching her?" As she shoves as much pancake in her mouth I think,"what am I teaching her?" As she says,"soda please" again,. . . . "what am I teaching her?" or when she put her baby doll in TIME OUT in the dogs' cage. . . really,"what am I teaching her. And lastly when she comes out of her room dressed in only a pink cowgirl hat,"what AM I TEACHING HER??". . . . Nevermind, this must be what her dad is teaching her. . . . there's some optimism for you.

You are teaching her wonderful things! For one thing, you teach her to love the color pink, which is pretty important for a little girl to know. :)

Karla you are the cutest girl ever. I loved reading your blog just now! I am so sad you didn't give me the real details about how sick you guys have been when I talked to you last week! I am just a hop, skip and jump away and I am ALWAYS willing to help out a friend. Please call me if you ever need anything, even if it's a nap or a gallon of milk or an understanding ear. (After all you were the stranger/friend that was there for me when I had my pregnancy scare) I hope you guys are feeling better now and that Miss Priss' doll didn't burn up in her oven. :) xoxo

Hey the whole peeing in a pot thing is a good sign!! She can't generalize yet. So you may tell her the oven in the kitchen is hot but to her it only means THAT oven NOT all ovens. Especially a play oven. Why wouldn't it make a great place to put the baby doll? Just wait until your little boys tops all of her tricks!!!!
