Little A is 8 months now. She is crawling and pulling up. She can crawl up stairs and is into everything!
But oh is that baby girl sweet! She smiles about EVERYTHING and is the happiest little girl ever!
Slow down little A! Slow down!
E.C. is 2 and 1/2. She is pretty shy around strangers but boy does that girl have spunk when she is in a comfortable situation! She is one observant cookie. I am amazed at the things she notices! She is potty trained...for the most part and eats her veggies and fruit like a champ! She can pedal her trike and works puzzles like crazy!
I don't think most of my readers follow professional basketball. But if you read the papers or follow the Yahoo home page or watch television, you probably know that Lebron James was all the talk this week. He's the professional basketball player that held a press conference last night announcing his decision about where he would play next year. (Not that it matters, but he chose Miami.) He had been playing for Cleveland (not that that matters either.) Getting to my point here. The owner of Cleveland was upset that Lebron left. Very upset. So upset that he wrote THIS letter. Wow. Just wow. I don't care where Lebron plays. But I am sad that this kind of letter is what my *littles* will read. That this letter is what is normal these days. He's mad. He's hurt. If Lebron had stayed, he would be his best friend. What about "class?" I'm not picking on him. I don't have a favorite NBA team. I'm just sad today that this is accepted as normal behavior.
These *littles* deserve better. Your *littles* do too.
Never return a dish empty. You know, someone sends you a meal or a dessert in a dish and you need to return it to them. Mom always said to send it back with something in it. It doesn't have to be something you made. Perhaps fresh fruit/vegetables or their favorite candy bar. It's almost like a thank you!
Never give a wallet as a gift without money in it. Even if it's a dollar. Just don't give it empty.
Always send a Thank You note. If someone takes the time to give you something, take the time to send them a thank you.
When you are spending time at someone's home, make your bed.
Never decorate with a candle unless you lite the wick.
Have you heard of these tips? What did YOUR mom teach YOU?
