Sweet Whispers


There isn't any other way to wake up than to the sweet cuddles and kisses of your 4 year old daughter. She stroked my face and kissed my eyebrows and I sighed happily and gave her a kiss back. She snuggled down onto my shoulder and squeezed me tightly. And then, ever so softly, and with the kindest of voices, she whispered this advice to me:

"Hey Mommy? When you wake up and get out of bed? You should get right into the shower, ok?"

Ahem.

Nothing like sweetly being told you STINK by your preschooler at 7 am...

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. Especially since, well... she was right!
Have a great week. Be sure to bathe often. 
I just read this oldie in my archives from 2009 and laughed so hard I had to share it again. Also? I am lazy. Or tired from too much sun. Or something. But isn't she cute??? I am so glad I have this blog to record these memories. Whenever I feel like I'm a little burned out, I browse through memory lane on my blog and am SO GRATEFUL to myself of 6 years ago when I suddenly got the urge to start a "blog thing". THANK YOU TRACEY of 2006!

I can't tell you how many times my daughter has told me that I need to brush my teeth. Now I know how my poor husband must feel about MY honesty!

Oh the innocent honesty of children! LOL

I think it's wonderful that you're finding such sweet memories and re-sharing them. :)

My 2 yr. old just told me "Mommy dirty. Mommy need bath." Yup, time to reacquaint myself with my shower on a more frequent basis...

Mine likes to inform me that my breath stinks.
He likes to plump up my self esteem really early in the day :)
