This week my little Ray of sunshine is at my parents for the week. She is at "Camp Noonie Papa". Pictures will follow of this camp. In short, at the camp are: Ann Marie, Lauren, Max, Sutton, Owen, Cooper and Ragon. Yep - all seven are with my parents, along with TWO camp counselors. They do all types of fun things. But to be honest, I miss my little "Ray Ray" as we lovingly call her. Lately, I have realized that she is my little ray of sunshine everyday. Of course, Ragon is constantly on the go...she talks non-stop (she comes by this naturally) and she is a little spit fire. But in all of that, she is the sweetest, funniest, most upbeat, hysterical little ray of sunshine for her parents. And tonight I am a little jealous of my parents for getting to enjoy my sweet thing.....sleep tight little girl - your momma loves you - and I will see you Saturday!
I am leaving on a road trip with my girlfriends tomorrow. Crazy, huh? Well not so much. I - at the age of 35 - am a bridesmaid. Am I really a bridesmatron? Is that a thing? So I am so excited, one of my girlfriends is getting married, and I have the honor of being in the wedding. So four other girlfriends of mine from work are driving to Madisonville Texas early in the AM. My sweet hubby has the kids for the weekend. How sweet is he? I am excited for the wedding, excited for the getaway, but I know I will really miss my babies. And to be honest, this will be the first night I spend away from Greyson - my little man! I will probably be sad - but I will be okay. Please pray for safety for us girls and for my family over the weekend! Have a wonderful weekend!
I am a bad mom...not always, but Monday - I totally failed the "mommy test". I took Ragon to her first movie. I totally talked it up, about how fun it would be. About having a snack, being quiet, etc. Our local movie theatre has a "kids film festival" all summer and offers free movies for kids one day a week during the summer. (for more info all over Tulsa click HERE). Anyway - I took Ragon to ZATHURA. If you have seen this movie, you know where this is going. This movie is NOT for children, in my opinion of any age. Now, generally I am not that conservative, but in the first five minutes one kid called another kid a "D"....another word for penis. YEP! I couldn't believe it. I almost left (and should have) but thought, I talked this up and she, and Greyson, were being so good and watching it, I let it go. But about the time the Robot began chasing the kids through the house trying to kill them...well we were out of there! Seriously - Ragon climbed into my lap, clung to me like a tree frog and said "I scerred". It broke my heart. I am the one who is supposed to protect her little mind and let her keep her innocence. And here I had taken her to her first movie and I hadn't looked it up! I just assumed someone elses' standards met mine! Big mistake. To make matters worse, she screamed bloody murder when I put her to bed, because she was "scerred of the mobie". It literally felt like my heart was being ripped out as I left her! Anyway - the crying was significantly shorter tonight, hopefully past it tomorrow. So the lesson - check out the movies, G ratings are BOGUS nowadays!
I am a mom/lawyer! I work two days a week and am blessed enough to stay home the rest of the time. I have a little girl named Ragon, a new little man Greyson, and have the most wonderful husband in the world, David.
