I had a 7:30 am flight to Fort Worth this morning for work. Trent & Little K agreed to take me since my car is in the shop. At 5:30 am, I gently woke my daughter, saying it was time to go to the airport.

My sleepy girl arose, grabbed her baby dolls & headed to Daddy's car.

"I can't believe I'm in my PJs," she said sleepily with a slight sound of a giggle.

"I can't believe we are driving at this hour!" I replied. It was still dark outside. All in a day's work, right?

After my meetings, I head back to the airport. Surprise! Flight delay! Oh, I'll be home soon if those Houston storms will clear.

Until the next nap time...

The Day After Father's Day

This morning, Little K awoke and found me at the computer, working away. I convinced her to get dressed and then gently wake up her daddy.

Instead, Little K went into our bedroom, climbed up on her father and said: "Daddy, wake up. It's Kids Day!"

Today, following Father's Day, we both chuckled but my husband is quick even upon first waking.

"Good!" he said. "Since it's not my day, I'm going back to bed. Or should I put you to bed?"

"No way, Daddy!" Little K giggled. It was a good start to the day.

All in the Eye (& Ear) of the Beholder

The other weekend I bought some new face lotion that smells so aromatic. It's wonderful! So earlier this week I put it on as Little K got in bed. As she called for her bed-time prayers, I took a deep breath of my relaxing-scented lotion & calmly walked into Little K's room. She's gonna love the smell, I thought.

As I laid down on the bed, Little J commented, indeed.

"Mommy, you smell like Daddy's shaving cream," she said, scowling.

There went that idea!

So I'm stuck in traffic on 249 so I'll take a minute to blog.

Little K is in her second week of summer camp, which means no uniforms. Well, that is except for my daughter, who keeps picking out her uniform shorts and skorts to wear. I told her she could wear any of the shorts in her drawer for camp. Nope. She keeps going to her closet to get those uniform skorts. At least the uniform bottoms are solid navy so it's not super obvious. And a change if shirts is a good cover. Who knew I wasn't the only sucker for the uniform?!

Last week was Little K's last trip to pre-k & I was surprised at my reaction to the milestone. I was surprised the year flew by so fast & that my baby completed her first year in elementary school.

Little K at first said she didn't want to go to kindergarten because they have homework & that's boring. She later admitted that she didn't know what "boring" meant.

After meeting both kindergarten teachers, she's looking forward to it. Phew!

Today my husband dropped her off at her first day of summer camp. She was ready at 7 am! Wow! I'm sitting at the doctor's office for my annual check-up, wishing I could have dropped off Little K. Well, there is tomorrow.

Until the next nap time...
