*We have cardinal babies. This little one is just learning to fly.
You have to let them fly…..you can't keep them in the nest forever...
*My second baby cardigan in Chesapeake is blue but it may be for a girl. You have to let them dress themselves, someday.
When they are dolly sized, you can dress them however you want.
*Children at the beach last night were sand happy.
You find sand in their ears and between their toes for days afterwards..
You have to let them learn to eat their sandwiches before they get sandy, or else you have to let them eat a little sand.
This week my youngest niece , Maria, was visiting from Arizona again. She is the caboose. She was an oops. She makes us laugh.
She was asking questions about my mother, who has Alzheimer's now. She asked how she would die.
She asked in a very calm way. She watched Heaven is For Real and she believes that little boy.
My sister, her mother, told her
"She will forget to breathe."
That's not accurate. But I am the aunt, not the mother.
I did not correct her.
I just hope Maria isn't thinking,
"Must remember to breathe..must remember to breathe"
You have to let them ask tough questions….
and you have to say
"I Don't KNow" sometimes!
