Abigail says funny things. The funniest thing is that most of the time she doesn't even realize it. Sometimes what she says makes me roll my eyes (hmmmm...maybe that's where she gets it from!). Sometimes it makes me take a slow deep breath. Sometimes she makes me count to 53. Sometimes she makes me laugh out loud....like the other morning.
Abigail is not a morning person. She doesn't like mornings. If she had her way she wouldn't even do mornings....until there is something she is really wanting to do. :) She had one of those mornings a few days ago. She was up with only one wake up call and dressed and downstairs before Annah even lifted her head off the pillow. I loved it -- I wish she did that every morning.
As Tim was getting ready to bring kids to school I asked Abigail to go up stairs in her room and get something for me. She was less than thrilled, rolled her eyes and sighed and began going upstairs murmuring that she was going to be late!!!!
Is that really MY child saying that? Somebody check her birthmark just to be sure!
Seriously? SHE is the one who everybody waits on (unless it's something she wants to do).
As she went up the stairs I said to Tim in a low voice, "She is the one who is always running behind!"
Then a voice coming from the direction of the stairs said, "I can heeeaar you!"
I replied, "Oh yeah, what did I say?" (I was sure she was just messing with me!)
Abigail replied, "You said you're blowing my mind!"
I am Loretta..wife to Tim and mom to 6 great kids. Tim (the younger), Andrew, Jordan, Jacob, Abigail and Annah and mother-in-law to Lisa and McKenna and grandmother to two grandsons, August Samuel born in September 2015 and Mackson Timothy David born in March 2016!
Tim and I have been married for 32 years and have lived in central Kentucky for over 20 years. Cancer invaded our lives in December 2008 when Tim was diagnosed with base of tongue cancer but in spite of it, we are still a happy and thriving family! I am grateful for my life, all we have come through, all we are going through and all that is yet to come because I believe, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
