the snapshots that tell the story


Little Miss Muffet was tucked into bed last night when we arrived to sit the babies.

A hullabaloo ensued when I peeked in to kiss good night.
If we were there...
where were mommy and daddy and when I couldn't find them.
It was an unhappy moment.

The tired little sweet couldn't fall asleep.

I brought her back downstairs in her sleep sack and we sat and looked at the snapshots on the blog.

This...she decided..
was better than mommy and daddy and the tears soon dried and she pointed out all she knew...
 all the landmarks she holds dear...
and all the fun times she remembers.

Soon enough..
she started to rub her sleepy eyes and we went back up to her room.

She snuggled in while I rocked and sang 24 stanza's of E I E I O.

I laid her down...
and hummed another 10 stanza's of E I E I O....
while slowly backing out of the room.

This all happened just as I was wondering what to blog for today.

It reminds me again how there are stories to tell all around us and moments that we should tell..
for little girls grow up and I may not remember for ever.

all for now...

    1. Aww Vee...your first comment arrived at my inbox so I will just reply here. I will study up on all the words for Moon River...since I would enjoy singing that one so much more. Her favorite is E I E I O...but maybe we can sing 3 stanza's of that and then move on to Moon River.

  7. The singing, someties back rubbing, humming, more slowly, and quieter,...I've done that, seems so long ago. Dairymary

  8. I can relate to them enjoying the pictures on the computer. Your moment with her was precious, I can tell. One day she will remember, as I do, her Grammie's singing and special love for her. May you have many more.

  10. The little moments...I think those are the most blog worthy.
    Thanks for the lullabye suggestion. Baby praise songs per your suggestion are a standard choice. For play songs we do Tie me kangaroo down, sport (YouTube has all the verses).

  11. So sweet. Memories to treasure. Love the picture of you backing out of the room while humming. Been there, done that. Will probably be doing it again with the grandchildren.
