dear ms b-u r sunshine

ms b
you are a true ray of sunshine in our lives this week
we have our hands on you mostly all to ourselves this week
are we having fun or what

the first thing we did is go to our favorite mexican food restaurant
as we walked in
you had your new back pack on
its yellow
it a donald duck backpack
wonder where you got that

now a 2 year old is a busy person
sometimes they can make fun out of things
we never think about
probably having more fun that if we had taken
her somewhere
like a park or zoo

like yesterday
there is this old chair your gma she drugged home
it was all beat up real bad
ms b
i instantly saw an end product
a true duct tape chair
so i used 2 rolls of duct tape on this chair
its my favorite piece of furniture in our house
i think its your favorite
as you climbed up in it
looked up at me and smiled
please her eyes said

now this chair should be at every park
every daycare
it does so much

it easily goes around and around like a merry go round
it rocks back and forth like a rocking horse
plus its easier to hold on
it slides forward and backwards
like you were ice skating or something

i finally had to say
no mas no mas
i was pretty dizzy afterwards
as you said
more more granddaddy
you can say my name now

you ask me
you can have it

me thinks you will return to that old chair
many times while you are here

you love the big ole frog in our small pond
it jumps in
croaks a lot
now you can croak just like it
theres the little fishes we have swimming in there
ms b
are from the river
we plan to wagon you down to today
to throw rocks
get wet
maybe see a deer or a cow or a rabbit or a turkey
on the way we will go past the horseys and mule and cows

our plan is for you to be wet and dirty when you come back
with a big smile on your face

its into the garden
to trim off all our spinach
to pull up some big ole carrots
to pick some sweet peas
to pick some asparagus
we will plant our basil and our peppers
plant our black eyed peas on any bare ground left
maybe just maybe
ms b
we will have some blackeyed peas for new years day
that means good luck for the rest of the year

its bluebonnet picture time
we have saved a patch with your name on it

by this time
i think you will be all tuckered out

u r our sunshine for sure

here is an article titled
when she was a baby
about a grandfather who wrote a journal for
his granddaughter when she was young
he gave it to her on her 16th birthday

these ms b blogs are to her
to read some years in the future

you can go to my blog page online and type in
dear ms b in the search window
all my blogs to her are there

i/we want her to know how much she means to us
to maybe get a sense get the essence of who i/we are were
