Tween Tuesday

Today's post consists of a few random quotes from conversations with Beanna. Some our chit chats make me laugh out loud while others simply leave me amazed at my beautiful daughter.

"I hope I don't have to poo, because I will not poo on the plane."
This one made me laugh out loud when we she announced this shortly after we took our seats for our flight from San Francisco to PA.


"Why would anyone throw a baby in the garbage? That's not right at all."
This topic came up while watching Breaking Amish on TLC. We talked about this topic a little further and as usual my heart swelled at the compassion and empathy my daughter has for others.


"What kind of business woman doesn't have tape?"
This one came when Bea was with me at work this afternoon and she couldn't find tape at my desk. I told her to check my other co-worker's cube after which Bea told me not only does she not have tape but she doesn't have a stapler either; our business lady titles have officially been revoked.


"Not all homeless people are bad people or scary, just some are. They're just like us, they just don't have a house but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be nice to them."
She told my aunt this on our way into the city, pointing put the high homeless population in SF. She broke it down in kid terms that you pretty much can't judge a group of humans based off the actions of others. Another proud mom moment.


"When I grow up can Ellie come live with me?"
When I asked her why she explained that Mr. G and I would be too old to take care of her, mind you she's speaking of when she turns 18 in 7 years...


This is just some of the randomness that my monster comes up with, I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the point that this little girl keeps me on my toes. Bea is still in the super talkative stage which at times drives me nuts but I have to admit I look forward to our various conversations because I know that the teen years are just around the corner and the closeness we share may change for a little bit although I'll be doing my best to keep her a little girl as possible.

mijita

Mijita (mee-hee-ta) - common term of endearment meaning "my small daughter" or more accurately "my dear child".

My grandfather called myself and my 2 cousins mijita growing up (although I know I was his #1, LOL). The nickname has been music to my ears since I was a little girl, everytime he'd call out "mijita" we'd coming running while arguing (even at times pulling eachother's hair) to get there first since we really never knew which one of us he was calling. I lost my grandpa 11 years ago this past April but just because he's no longer walking this earth does not mean he's not still with me daily as cliche as that may sound. My grandpa Tim raised us 3 girls for a few years while our mom's worked on getting their lives together and I have to say those were the BEST years of my life. I have said it time and time again without his influence I probably would not be the woman I am today and for that I am thankful. My life has not been…

Tween Tuesday

The other day driving home from school Beanna told me when she grows up she will have a foster kid (her words). I asked her what made her want a foster child and I have to say her response made me proud. Her reasoning behind wanting to be a foster parent was simple enough..."some kids need a good home and I want to give him or her one." She went on to tell me that one of her friends has a foster sister that the family treats as their own which is important because nobody wants to feel left out just because they're not blood related. I told her I agree completely, that blood isn't always what makes a family but rather the love we have for one another.
B and I talked quite a bit on the foster child subject with her pointing out that it's not a child's fault that they end up with "bad parents" and get taken away because after all they didn't ask to be born. This discussion left me warm and fuzzy. My daughter is wise beyond her years when it comes …
