The Countdown

Meredith turns 4 in December 16th. She can hardly contain her excitement and asks several times each day when she can start opening presents. I reminded her that getting her ears pierced was her present; she retorted, "Mommy, real presents are the secret kind with wrapping." She also asked Nana the other day, "What is your rule about going potty in the hot-tub?" On her birthday her preschool will also present a Christmas pageant. Meredith got the lead role as angel after she kept correcting the previous angel and telling her what to say. She'll be wearing the extravagant, white, wedding style dress she received from one of my patients in Kenya. And when I asked if she could have anything in the world what would it be she smiled and said, "Sparkly wings."

Incredibly Precious. I remember growing up with Art Linkletter's show Kids Say The Darndest Things - yep, that date's me - that show is still so appropriate and posts like this make my heart smile.

Thank you,

I knew that dress would come in handy one day! I love that she took the first angels job! Ha! That's our Meredith! We MISS her!

Way to go Meredith! That sounds like something she would do. I think to top off the angel outfit, you should have her wear those pink jeweled earrings and necklace!
