Day 14 of 2013
When you ask a little girl what she wants to be when she grows up she may tell you she wants to be a princess or a ballerina or a movie star. I wasn't like most little girls. I wanted to be Flip Wilson. Who remembers Flip Wilson playing Geraldine .... WOOOOOOO ... "The devil made me do it". I would put on skits but I would be laughing so hard at myself that the skit was ruined but I didn't care I was my own best entertainment and my biggest fan.
After a couple years I grew out of the movie star stage. I wanted to be an Adult!! A grown-up. They get to do whatever they want. Get up when they want, eat what they want, bath or not bath and go to bed when they want. Oh and don't forget it's the grown-ups that have the money. I wanted some of that too, I never had any money as a kid. Yep I wanted to be an adult. That was for me for sure!!
After a few more years I realize I needed to refine what I wanted. What did I really want to be when I grew up. What was going to make me happy. I wanted to feel love all the time. I wanted to make a difference in someone's life. I wanted to see that there was good and I could have a part in it. I wanted to be a MOMMY! This stayed with me through my childhood, my teenage years. Through the good and the bad of growing up. When it was good I wanted to remember and use this to make my baby smile. When it was bad I told myself ... "I will never ever treat my little girl like this" ... you know you said it too.
When I was 19 I did have a child. My baby. I got just what I always wanted. I got a little girl of my very own. She was so small, so precious, so special. My world now rotated just for her. I only had 1 name picked out from the time I found out I was pregnant until that 4 lb 4 oz baby girl was finally nestled into my waiting arms. Melissa but I will call her Missy. Oh she was smart. When she smiled, I smiled. Of course I had to learn the word NO ... but I didn't want to, it went against everything I said I wanted to be as a Mommy. But baby can't put a toy in the electrical outlet. But a baby can't play on the stairs like that. I learned right along with my baby girl, My Missy Moo.
Now My Missy Moo is all grown up. Now she's married with children. Today is Missy and Andrew's anniversary and I wanted everyone to know. Happy Happy Anniversary
that's all for today, I'll go wipe my face now
talk to you tomorrow
Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
