Cheer up, Kimmie

When Kimmie has to wake up early from a nap, she is not in the best of moods. Shall we say, major drama? Today she fell asleep on the way from Quan's speech to the grocery store, about a 40 min. trip. Well, in 96 degree Alabama heat, she HAD to wake up and go in the store, and she was not happy about it at all. I plopped her in a buggy and began to stroll her unhappy self in the store when alongside of her came her 10 year old brother, Colby. "Cheer up, Kimmie! Brett Favre is comin' back!"
She was not amused.

Too funny, Laine!!
Hey, the logic of a 10 year old boy is just too much for a 3 year old sister *LOL*.
Nina does amazingly well when I wake her up from her naps (and that is almost 75% of the time, otherwise little sleepy head would sleep until suppertime!).
Love, Barb

...through the eyes of a child... Kimmie was probably like.... "who cares!" I can see that look she gave him now! ;0)

Awwwwwww, sweet Kimmie.

Colby will have much of the same kind of wisdom to share through the years, I predict. Brothers are the best.

Why wouldn't she cheer up at that news?! :) Football is everything, right?!
I'm trying to get caught up with everyone's blogs myself, and I just want to say how much I related to your last post! Thank you for your candidness! (Is that a word?!)

ha! Hannah has always hated waking up from a nap, and waking up from bedtime, and going to sleep in the first place! It's almost good that she's starting to outgrow naps now. Sadie, on the other hand, wakes up and SMILES! seriously! What a great big brother Colby is to cheer her up (or attempt!).

Michele said...

I LOVE Colby for that - he clearly knows the right thing to say...well, it would have cheered me up - until TODAY when they told Brett they didn't want him in Packer land anymore. I'm a Packer fan, but having a hard time with that one!

Oh my goodness, does she ever sound like my Linzhi!!!

Tell Colby, I wanted my Chicago Bears to pick up Brett Favre!!!! LOL...

Thank you for your prayers my friend and yes, I am broken hearted.

God bless!
