So my daughter, who is about to have her 10th birthday, comes to me last night and asks me how to get to sleep. She tells me that she can't stop thinking about stuff and just lays there starring at the ceiling. She is so excited about her birthday coming in Oct and the costume slumber party she is planning, that and she has her first ever crush on a boy in her class.
I can remember my 4th grade and i had similar problems sleeping, my mind would race thinking of things from, will Erica talk to me today (my first crush), will brandon beat me up at school or after, and will i actually get Castle Grayskull for Christmas.
I could make this a mumm because i really would like to know what you tell a 9 year old when they ask, 'how do you stop thinking?'
I did refrain from telling her i masterbate when i can't sleep, but siriusly that is the only answer i could come up with in my head.
So I am sitting here at work, bored outta my skull. Things are really slow, scary slow. So Thought i would blog and while brainstorming i remembered an old list of firsts...you know first concert, first car, first kiss...etc. It reminded me of the day of my first kiss. Thought i would share the story, I have only ever told this story to one other person, too bad she isn't here it would be nice to read her comments.
Anyway 3rd grade, my older brother is in 5th grade. I always hung out with older kids cuz of my brother. Well we both had a little crush on the same girl, a girl from his class, Trisha. Oh Trisha auburn hair, so pretty and a smile that just made you stop in your tracks.
Anyway my brother and i would compete for her attention. We all three always walked home together, she only lived a few houses down from us. I was a cocky little thing then, brimming with confidence. Well my cockyness seemed to be working cuz she would give me so much attention and laughed at my smartass jokes. Well one day after school Trisha and I left without waiting for Brian (my brother). He was crushed, fumming mad, telling everyone how he was gonna kick my ass. Trisha not impressed with his jealousy or as i liked to think severly impressed with my charm, continued the practice of walking home with just me. It escalated to holding hands by the end of the week and I started hinting at a possible kiss in the future.
So a few days later after me bringing up kissing several times she says to me 'how much do you like me' oh, i so liked her, the butterflies made me wanna puke sometimes. I told her that i'd do anything to kiss her...well 'anything?' she replied. then she told me that since her dad was fertilizing their lawn would I stand in a wheelbarrel of fresh Horse shit to kiss her...No question I would, enthusiastically i agreed. Well we get back to her place after school and I stand in the wheel barrel full of horse shit (oh it stunk)...she leans over and gives me a nice big kiss. So i showed her haha. Anyway i arrive home so excited about the kiss go to my room and see that my closet door was cracked open, i go to check it out, my brother is laying on the floor of my closet asleep, waiting to ambush me. He was wakened by a barrage of horse shit covered shoes kickin the hell outta him...the day ended with my mom consoling my brother but telling him that what he gets for trying to ambush me and I slept well getting to kiss the girl and gettin the best of my brother :D
Unfortunately Trisha couldn't be seen with the 3rd grader that stood in shit for a kiss anymore so our budding relationship was ended far too soon...and Brian let things go...for a while anyway...he got his revenge i assure you.
Anyway long blog hope you enjoy :D
I have been Bebe's adoptive pet for 2 weeks now :D I could not have asked for better owner she treated me so well, keeping me fed and played with me as much as I wanted :D she is terrific at scratchin a belly and playin tug-a-war (always making it challenging but letting me win in the end). Never yelled at me for being on the furniture and let me sleep at the foot of her bed. Kept my water dish filled with evian and fed me healthy foods and treated me with the occasional people food ;) I thank you Bebe so much for making me feel like a such a special pup, I couldn't have asked for a better owner and as much I think I will never do another adoption, it was nice to know that someone valued me so much :D ♥ Please go by and show her some love :D Adopted by this wonderful Beauty ★ ♥Bebe ♥
