This Little Miggy Stayed Home: Mornings

Wednesday, May 16, 2012


Because sometimes I just want to remember rumpled, ponied, bed-headed hair.
And that she asked for a straw to drink her milk with.  

I want to remember these sweet little faces that are still showing signs of waking up.  I want to remember the predictable routine of "wheats" (as she calls them) for the big one and cheerios for the little one.    

And I want to remember on this particular ordinary morning the sweet words of a not-yet-two-year-old who said out of the blue, Cute pony tail sistah.


  1. I love this post. Your precious daughters, their faces, their words! The best part? You writing it down where it will be recorded forever! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Is it just me, or is Lamp verbally advanced for her age? She is an amazing little talker! :)

    I was thinking the same thing about Lamp.

    OMG! She did not say that!!! LOL The cutes!


  5. Yes, I have to say she's quite verbally advanced for her age. People will say things like, "oh is she saying any words yet?" And then I watch their jaws drop to the floor as she says, "Mama I want more fishies please." Or something of the like. She's been talking in sentences since 15 months. I can keep bragging if you want... :)

  6. Oh, it all goes so fast! Love the sisterhood those two have, and that Lamp is going to write a novel someday. ;)

    Yes, the "ordinaries" of life are often forgotten, yet so many of them are precious. I agree with Kiki that it is so great that you are preserving those memories here!

    "Cute pony tail sistah." The sweeeetest! You brag on that sugar doll Lampy all you want, Miggy!

  8. Love the cute pony tail comment!
