press 1 for Amara
Never say she doesn't listen.
Tonight, I was downstairs when I heard Amara talking upstairs in her bedroom. I just assumed she was chit-chatting about the day's events wtih her dolls.
But after awhile, I got the feeling she was actually conversing with someone so I decided to drag my rear end up the stairs to check on her like a good Mom2Amara.
I find my daughter on my cell phone, hooping it up with Aunt2Amara in Hawaii. Apparently she remembers her speed dial number on my cell. And when I questioned Amara on who else she's been talking to, she told me she called Godmother2Amara. I checked my dialed calls and sure enough, Amara did gossip with her too.
She's 3. Damn. Just wait until she's a tween -- we'll never get her off the phone.
today's good: I cleaned the house. After a week off from work for Great-grandma2Amara's funeral, the house has gone to the wayside. And after then 2 feet of snow we got, the house needed a good scrubing.
today's bad: There's a lot going on right now personally and professional. Some stuff you all already know and others I'd rather keep private (it's the perogative I still have). But I will say that today I officially stepped down as troop leader of my Girl Scout troop. It pains me to do. But when I have to prioritize the things in my life, unfortunately, I'm not related to any of the girls in the troop so when I say work and family are huge components in my life, the girls just don't fall under "family." I just hope I don't crush those girls' spirits too much
