Ashley: Yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night because I had a bad dream. I went to tell you about it, but you were asleep, so I didn’t wake you.

Me: Aww, that was sweet of you to let me sleep.

Ashley: (Long pause) “I just want you to know that I forgive you for being asleep when I needed you.”

Me: 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Annie is Over

It’s finally over. We’re done with Annie…for now.

My little orphan with… Aileen Quinn? I try not to post pictures of other people’s children, so enjoy my underwhelming Photoshop skills.

Ashley cried from disappointment on the drive home, but as her voice teacher told her, “Don’t worry, Ashley. There will be many more Annie productions in your future.” Truer words were probably never spoken. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️


Ashley’s hand got caught in a door yesterday as it was closing. She was hysterical. I felt awful for her. Well, I felt awful for her… up until the point when she began faking mini seizures from the pain.🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️The seizures miraculously stopped after I extended her bedtime by half an hour.

And just think…she hasn’t even reached her tween years yet. It’s only going to get worse. 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️😳
