The + One Factor

Cpt Mom is away. And I have her girl. I am having an absolute blast with her. She is sassy as all get out...and when I say sassy, I mean it in the cutest, most adorable way.

Cutie is all sorts of big. Tomorrow, we are having a too big for the binkie party. Cupcakes with pink sprinkles are on the menu. She threw one of her binkies in the trash today. I thought I'd have to fish it out of the garbage tonight. Nope. She was only sad for a short while this evening, never asking for her binkie, but rather for her mom. It was completely precious.

Having her here is so much fun. It is such a great reminder to cherish every moment with my children. They were once her age, and now...well, they are big.

As Cpt tackles the business world this week, I'll be tackling 3 kids. While she has to restock her wardrobe because of lost luggage, I get to throw on my gym clothes and play at the park. Don't get me wrong, not even a little...what Cpt is doing this week is VERY important. VERY valid. VERY needed. VERY MUCH of the Lord. I'm just lucky I get to fill in the gap with her Cutie and be reminded of how amazing my own two are as well. My heart is very, very full.

thanks for stopping by my website.. glad to know we weren't the only ones who made the mistake of thinking "Burn after reading" would be a good date movie!

We will definitely see FIREPROOF next

Sweet! I love the + 1 factor. It puts things in a whole fun new world.

It is always a good idea to remember to enjoy the kids along the way. It does go way way too fast.

hey little recommendation- fish it out of the trash because she will want it for memories when she is older. I threw mine away and a few years later i was wondering about it and my mom had gotten it out of the trash, washed it, and saved it for me and posibly my kids. it is a good thing to do!!

CONGRATULATIONS TO CUTIE!!! I enjoyed her company today (along with Dirty Jobs - soo much fun!) and am convinced she is way beyond binkies now! Hope you enjoyed your cupcakes with pink sprinkles!

I had a great time reading through your blog. The post about the current economic times and how we Americans are unprepared was very good.
