"Lily Lippers..." she said.
Then, "Lily Leopard...?" no that's not it either. "Lily Tiger... AH! TIGER LILY!"
Susanna and the the McGillicutty trait. The one inherited from me. MY side of the family.
Affectionately and with humored reverence referenced by my maiden name
(which, by the way, isn't really McGillicutty)
The McGillicutty brain remembers things in gist's and catalogues them
by what they look like or sound similar to.
We're good at Pictionary.
I have the McGillicutty trait. My brother Char. Molly.
My son Clayton has it in spades!
This time Susanna was trying to remember the name of a wild flower.
It can be hard for outsiders to translate, but we on the in - we understand each other
almost perfectly. It's almost like a code. Crack it if you dare!
I wonder if Aloria will have the McGillicutty trait?
Miss "Crazy Hair" Mercy squeaky clean after a bath.
Don'tcha know that life is made up of moments? And moments on moments?
We can't afford to miss these moments!
You can capture some pretty fun moments by spying on your little people.
In his last days as a single digit number, my 9 year old son Zachary built a sail boat.
He is our "Man with a plan". His plans are usually bigger than our means or abilities,
but this time the entire project was executed and completed on his own (with some help from brother).
There were numerous obstacles discovered along the way
such as getting the boat to float upright.
But one thing was tried, then another, and like Edison and the first light bulb
Zachary ended with a long list of things that wouldn't work.
But by persistence he solved the puzzle and victory tasted Oh so sweet!
More moments to savor.
"Bye Folks! See if you can't sneak a few moments of your own!"
