Saturday Saccharine

"We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Ear"

Although a part of me hated to do it, I just felt the need to point it out to her.

"Sweetie, I think that might be a happy new Year."

"No mommy, it sounds like 'EAR' ... that's how the song goes!"

"So how many ears do you have? Do you think anyone might need a new one?"

"I have two ears. No, you only need two! That's silly!..." (well, duh, Mommy...).

So for anyone who might just need a replacement,

"We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Ear!!"


As I was straightening up the stockings on the fireplace mantle, I noted aloud that we only had one for each of the kids. I said to the little G that perhaps I should get another two, one for her Daddy and one for Mommy. She didn't think that was necessary:

"That's OK Mommy, Goh-goh and I will share our candy with you".


I am in the midst of last minute preparations for the little G's 4th birthday party happening this afternoon. At 12:30 PM, fifteen preschoolers and toddlers will descend upon the indoor playground for two hours of runaround play. And my family, and most importantly, my father, will be there to celebrate with us.

My thanks to you, all of my internet pals, for your thoughts and prayers. We're still in an anxious waiting period, but at least my father is home. I am doing my utmost to stay positive, and this birthday celebration will be a happy one. Whatever tears of worry I have will be shed on the inside... and hopefully all for naught.

Sometimes all we can do is just stay in the moment. I have a feeling you'll have a wonderful afternoon!

This would be a perfect post for Friday Fragments. Especially considering all that you have going on with you! Just jot down your bits and pieces from the week and purge them on Friday! :) Also, There is no "Follow this Blog" button here...that's odd. Do you know how to fix that?
