Once Upon A Time


Today was such a dreary day. It was almost cold. A great day to stay in bed! Well I have been feeling bad almost all week. So this afternoon when Shannon & Ty took a nap at the same time. I knew I had to convince Alli to lay with me & "try" to rest. So best way for that is tell her she can tell you a story. So this was Allison's story:



Once upon a time there was a mommy, a sister,a brother & a baby sissy. They lived in a big castle beside Kings Island. In their backyard was a bridge that went to daddy. It also went to Uncle Mark house. (Matts brother in Oklahoma) They could play all together all day until the Sgt. yells for daddy to go to bed. Then daddy gives everybody goodnight kisses. Then they go to bed & not be sad about missing people. They all live happily ever after......THE END:)

So at that point I was in tears. If only it were that easy Allison......If only!

Wow from the mouths of our kids - they are so innocent. My son use to say the cutest things when my husband was deployed for a year and it would just bring tears to my eyes. He was only 3 but always trying to make mommy not sad. Hang in there - some tough days, some really tough days and some days you make it thru & even manage a smile or too. But every day that goes by is just another day closer to your hubby coming home. Hugs, Karen

Your post was so sweet and sad at the same time.

Know that I am praying for the safe return of your husband and all our soldiers that are over in Iraq.

Love those babies...they grow up fast.

Oh my gosh. I was crying. The sweetest things come out of the mouths of children. They are so innocent. That song always gets me too. It is my profile song on my MySpace.

Children are so wise beyond their years. I know that it's sad and it feels like it will never end, but keep your chin up, we'll make it through together!
