Some Days She Gives Me A Smile...

... even when she is not around.  I dropped my 8 year old daughter off at school this morning.  When I got back to the house, I walked into her room to retrieve a rental DVD that needed to be returned.  On her desk, I found a to-do list she had made for an upcoming sleep over.  I sat there reading it and the biggest smile came over my face.  Then I chuckled at her nature.  She is planning to have fun.  I love that about her. :)

My favorite is #9.  "When all clear, have pillow fight".  lol

That is the single most sweeeetest thing i have read in the past few days :)

And the writer wasn't even aiming for that :)

U are a lucky man :)

Thanks for your comment. The fact that she wrote it in private makes it all the more sweet. :)

I envy you your beautiful clever young daughter.

Thank you, ari. I envy her too, her youth- her vibrant personality. She's a joy. :)

Sweet! Keep these little notes, thatguy! I have letters to Santa from my son. And so many little things. We both delight in reading these now. Little snippets of life and wisdom like snapshots in time. Delightful! Keep these coming, please.

Mine used to be forever making to-do lists too, and I have saved some of them. Like you have found, the ones designed for play dates are especially amusing. She would write things like, "look in magazines for pictures of cute clothes" and "talk about boys" and my favorite, "Ask the tooth fairy for some money."

I love kids. Yours sounds adorable.

Thank you. I think their innocence adds to the "aww" factor. :)

Exactly. They have to make lists so they don't forget anything--not a minute wasted during the all-important sleepover. Very cute.

This cracked me up big time, lol. I think I'm partial to #6 "do whatever." Gotta love when you plan to just do whatever :).

Gives her some flexibility I suppose..

Awww, this is sooooo cute! After all that fun she even plans to "PASS OUT" Gotta love a little kid with such TOTAL forethought!! :D

lol. I thought that was cute too. :)

Cute list...and sounds great!

I think...children one among the best gift God gives us :)

Agreed!

The innocence of our children is the best gift. They make us stop for a moment and rethink life. When was the last time any of us had a pillow fight? And why has it been so long? Is it because we live in a life that we never find a moment that is "all clear"?



My wish for everyone today is to find the all clear, and happily whop the snot out of someone with a pillow. And then fall blissfully into bed. And remember why we fell in love in the first place.



God bless our children!!!!!

What a sweet comment. Yes, let's find our "all clear" moment today. What a great observation. :):)
