Recently Barbara Bush passed away. She lived her live with one seemingly important goal, her family. No matter what she did, or was involved in, she always put family first.
Since her passing I have heard, or read, this Barbara Bush quote many times. It never gets old, and the more I read or hear it, the more it sticks with me.
If everyone lived their lives based on this quote, we would all get along much better and life would be good. I hope you enjoy.
“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” – Barbara Bush
Borrowed once again from my daughters Facebook status.
Me: is my adult daughter. KB: is her 4 year old daughter.
Me: Myles, how old are you?
KB: He’s one. But he’s so big, he looks older.
Me: Oh, yeah? How old?
KB: 8.5, I’m telling you!
Having too much fun relaxing in the Sunshine state not to share a couple pictures with you people on the interweb. Enjoy.
As many of you know I post funny Facebook status’s that my oldest daughter writes, usually about her children. Today is no different. Below you will find another status she posted the other day.
KB is her 4 year old daughter, Kaydi Belle, and Myles is her 1 year old son, KB’s brother.
KB: *mock serious voice to Myles* I wanted to do this the easy way. But I guess we have to do it the Kaydi Belle way.
In the borrowed Facebook Status below KB is my Granddaughter, and Me is my Daughter. This stuff happens all the time. Sometimes some of them just need to be documented for the purpose of preserving them for the future.
KB: Turn on a movie for me.
KB: Fine. Go to bed. One…two…three! Why are you not in your bed?
Me: Bc you can’t tell me what to do.
KB: Well, we are playing house. I’m the mom. Honey, would you like to watch TV? I’ll turn it on for you. Or you could do it yourself.
KB: Are you laughing at me? That’s it. You’re going to sleep RIGHT NOW.
This kid is sly. She also has learned how to mom somewhere. I can’t imagine who from.
Meal time at my daughters house the other day. KB (granddaughter) comes up with yet another head shaking moment. This is yet again another of my adult daughters Facebook status driven by real life moments.
Me, to my daughter: You eat your dinner. You don’t eat, then you don’t get a dessert or snack or ANYTHING for the rest of the night.
*An hour later*
Me: *finds KB in the bathroom, guiltily eating her strawberry flavored toothpaste* Well, played, child. Well played.
As many of you know, I sometimes post the rather funny Facebook status’s of my adult daughter. The posts are funny because they almost always are quotes from her 4, going on 24 year old daughter.
The child is too smart for her age and comes up with some witty and funny quotes out of the blue. Below is yet another one:
KB: *referencing her brother* Mommy, can you put this child to bed? He’s bothering me.
Me: Gee, I wonder what that’s like?
