I have a very full life. I work. In an exciting emerging field. I am committed to my outlets and make time for myself daily. I adore my husband. I have amazing friends. I do cool things that don't involve G.
But for some reason, documenting those moments is just not nearly as amazing or fun as documenting life with Miss G. I may regret not writing down each of the other aspects of my life, but I can say with full certainty that not placing these memories down on paper (errr...digitally) would be one of my biggest...if only's in life.
She loves to eat. She is full of joy. She is enthusiastic and sometimes loud. Her vibrant can be overwhelming to some, but to me it is just a little reminder that I am her mom.
I love you G. Everyday I worry you won't know just how much and then I wake up the next day I wake up loving you more. Thank you.
G: Mommy, remember when you were a little girl and you and Mimi would go to the nugget store?
G: Remember how silly you were and you would call it the Make up Nugget Store? HAHAHAHAH. You were so silly and talked like a little baby.

Ralph, Allison and Gia present.
G: Mommy, Daddy says bad words.
Me: Really? What bad words does he say?
G: I-A-R-Z-S. See, that's a really bad word.
Me: Oh, I'll talk to Daddy about it.
G: And put soap in his mouth? Because that's nasty talk. And we don't talk that way.

My parents have been members of the Cy Fair Credit Union since I was in Junior High.
Credit Unions have provided great loans, help when refunding accounting mishaps and just darn good customer service.
Granted, I don't have access to a gabillion ATM's. And I have to go to share branches much more often than not.
But after my latest banking woe, Credit Union's have my loyalty.
I am a magazine junkie. I love them. The glossy pages sliding through my finger. Renewals happen frequently on my bank account. But two recently stood out.
A FEW (like three) years back I ordered four different rags for my parents. It was some kind of crazy deal for $5 subscriptions. Who can beat that.
I am a sucker for a deal. So I signed them up and happily paid the twenty bones.
I was charged $39 for each magazine renewal (for 12 mos....each publisher charges between $7 and $20 for a year) this year.
The number listed on my statement provided NO access to a human being. NONE WHATSOEVER.
I call my Credit Union.
My Credit Union called the corporation (NEW SUB MAGAZINES owned by TIME) and had them reverse the charges and cancel all future charges.
In a matter of thirty minutes I got a call back with a cancellation number and Mary telling me she would be on the look out for the refund.
Tell me, you think Wells Fargo or Bof A will do that?
I love Credit Unions. Especially Anheuser Busch Employees Credit Union.

My two patriots. I just love this picture. So happy. Flags waving in the wind. Sigh.

Anyways, there are much worse shows than Caillou out there. He is a kind, thoughtful, curious, helpful, imaginative good big brother kind of guy. His parents are loving but firm. Gia is completely engaged and literally squeals with delight at the first beats of music to the theme song.
On occasion, the adjectives that are used to describe our sweet little monkey stray from those that describe Caillou.
So Ralph and I have started saying to Gia, "What would Caillou do?"
Yikes. Yikes. Yikes.
But it works.
