I received many comments/emails from people encouraging me to record EVERYTHING that she says/does from this point on.
I decided that this is a great idea, because already, I have forgotten so many of these amazing things.
My plan is to eventually turn this blog into (for personal use)a book. Mostly for memory sake, but also to give to my girls. Hopefully when they're a little older, the book will give them the opportunity to get to know me inside and out.
My hopes are that the book will also help them on their own journey of motherhood.
I would love to have access to my moms thoughts from when she was raising us!
So... from here on out, you will probably find some random posts about Gracie and the neat things that she has said/done.
The first one begins here....
This morning, after cuddling in bed watching TV, we got up to go downstairs.
On my way out of the room, I hit the power button on the TV and shut it off.
As we walked away, the TV came back on.
That's weird, I THOUGHT (I didn't acknowledge it out loud)
Gracie quickly said "Those silly angels, how did they do that?"
ME: It was an angel sweetie? Which angel do you think it was?
GRACIE: I think it was Gram's angel!
ME: Who is Gram's angel?
GRACIE: Gram's Mommy!
ME: OH?!!! (kinda speechless now because she has no real way of knowing that,,, she's 3!)
GRACIE: "Mommy, I think that Gram really misses her mommy every day."
ME: "I think you're right, she probably does!"
GRACIE: "Well mommy, Gram's mommy will always be in her heart, do you think she knows that?"
ME: "I hope so baby."
GRACIE:"Me too Mommy"
She then walked away and started playing... End of subject..
I quickly called my mom and told her and of course she teared up. She said that she has always told people that her mom is always in her heart and that she has always felt that she is with her..She also said that she has been thinking about her a lot lately. ( I will do a blog post this week to explain further)
We're kind of thinking that Gracie was confirmation of that this morning...
Until next time...
