This happened yesterday and I am still laughing to myself. My neighbor and I met up while I was hanging my Christmas wreath on my door. She was heading for her car, her little granddaughter who is about 6 years old in tow. I can never get over how chatty this little girl is, she just talks so much! Being pretty chatty myself, I can only say Katie, this ever so cute young girl is off to a great start. Not a shy bone in her body, Katie will sometimes share a bit too much information.
She came over to give me a hug and her greeting to me friendly as always. Her words spilling over each other I need to add. “Hi Gabby and how are you, how’s Autumn, haven’t seen her for awhile,all ready for Christmas, Christmas is my total favorite!” On she went…Your wreath is pretty, I am getting a new baby sister or brother and not sure which, but I want a sister.” I answered all her questions and statements, I think.
While Emma her grandmother chuckled and gave me a smile, saying how excited they were about the expected baby. Also telling me how bad her daughter’s morning sickness was, but hoping it would pass. Katie barged in to the conversation with “morning sickness means the barfing thing, yuck”. Emma and I laughed as Katie kept rolling…”I bet it’s a boy, they can make you sick sometimes”.
On she went about an annoying little boy in her class and how he always was telling her how pretty she was and had even kissed her on the cheek! Gutsy little boys in first grade these days it seems. I don’t recall them being quite so bold in Autumn’s and my young school days!
Anyway, Katie said this funniest thing about how said little boy Jake told her he loved her so much he just couldn’t say…Emma and I were both laughing again on that one. Kind of cute expression, I have to admire that boy he seemed to have quite a way with words. Emma told Katie it was time to get going, that they had to get to the grocery store. OK Katie agreed and gave me a nice hug goodbye, Emma and I exchanged goodbyes and she led Katie to the car.
I was still smiling and chuckling to myself as I went inside my house, little Katie…She is so funny and made my day. Oh, to be a kid again! 🙂
Little Katie 🙂 she is such a little sweetie, and a talker for sure. Great post, Gabs!! I got a few smiles from reading it. TF ❤ = Twins Forever
I know Katie is enough to make anyone smile! 🙂 She is sweet and such a talker, isn’t she twinnie? 🙂 TF <3=Twins Forever
I have a special someone here who does that, i usually try to catch up because i am lines behind when she is talking 🙂 Still quite special
That is so sweet Russell! I had to smile about your special someone talking fast and you being a couple lines behind. 🙂
Its not strange that we say that children is our future. They are just adorable.
I have a little girl living next door. She thinks im a troll and that my dog is a bear,
She’s not afraid even though she thinks this – she just accepts both me and the dog the way we are. 😉
I think kids are just adorable, too. Your little next door neighbor girl sounds like she has a good imagination! 🙂
a nice piece of a day!
It was, thanks so much for reading! 🙂
Dear Gabby, this doesn’t have much to do with this post. I really want to thank you. You know I’ve been busy, so i haven’t had much chance to come on. But i wanted you to know some of your comments had a very very powerful influence on my personal life. People who don’t think a blog-site can change your life are wrong. I did end up with my best friend. Your comments & a few others on my blog were so encouraging. I would never be this happy with out yall. I owe so much to you & we haven’t even met. Thank you so much for staying involved reading my stuff. I really love all of your & autumn’s posts, so i’m going to be back on soon. but just wanted you to know, you’ve really had a difference on my life. thank you.
You are so sweet, kind and just awesome and you are quite welcome! 🙂 I have to thank you, too for sharing these thoughts with me. It kind of took me by surprise, never thinking I could make such a difference, but I am happy to know I helped you. You do make a good point about we all make a difference with each other through our blogs. You have always touched my heart with your honesty about everything, also in searching for the right guy. So, it’s so exciting you are with your best friend and the best guy for you, it makes me overjoyed for you! Just hoping and praying you guys will be living closer very soon, the sooner the better I say! 🙂 It really is so wonderful to know you are finally happy and right with who you belong with. It really is the case of never settling for less than you deserve and you did it! He is a music man, they are very special…My husband Dave was one and Autumn’s fiance is also one of the music men. I know we all get so busy in our lives, but grateful we can catch up, too. I am going to keep you in my prayers and also keep in touch through our blogs, I want to make sure you stay this happy and blessed! 🙂 Hugs! 🙂
