Before I post a word about Brielle today, I need to apologize to the bloggers (or lurkers) who have been reading here and were offended with photo captions I posted. First of all, I LOVE my daughter and the country from where she was born and the Chinese culture. I never meant to "make fun" and intentionally hurt anyone. I have removed the wording which depicted dialect for fear of insulting anyone else. However... I do not blog for anyone but my family and friends. They know me and understand my humor. So for those of you who felt it necessary to let me know how you felt, thanks, but doing it anonymously does not allow me to contact you directly. Oh well.
Now that that is out of the way.... Brielle certainly has become a little Daddy's girl of late! I have had to work early and extended hours the past week which has afforded Brie and her Dad a lot of one-on-one time. Wow... she wants him by her side every minute now. Yesterday at church Rob dropped Brie off at Tots Landing and she screamed (literally from what I was told) when her Dad handed her off the to women working in her classroom. I wondered what was taking him so long as I went ahead and saved us seats in the auditorium. Finally, he had to get one of the Dad's who was working the registration desk to get her at which time she quieted right down.
I was totally expecting that to happen while we were in China... not four months later! I promise I'm trying to be the best mom I can be to her (although the ticked off lurkers would totally disagree with me on this right now!) But she is in LOVE with her Dad for sure.
Yesterday Olivia and I had our first one-on-one time since we returned from China. We went to see Madagascar 2. I think I laughed more than she did! We enjoyed popcorn and skittles and shared a drink! It was wonderful as I do miss spending time with the girls. Then we went home and played with Brielle who had napped almost the entire time we were gone. I wish weekends would come around alot faster than they do!
Country Girls Have All the Fun!!
