'Twas the Day After Birthday...

Waking up with a ball of left over fondant still rumbling about in your tummy is not my idea of fun. I climbed out of bed, wobbled and wove my way through the house in a near diabetic coma only to come face to face with a yellow submarine still sitting on my kitchen table. Must be everyone thought it was so pretty, they couldn't bear to eat it, right? Must be.

I yawned, smacked my lips a bit, scratched my tummy and then stretched in an effort to wake up. What day is this, again? Oh, yeah! The Day After Birthday... and Darling has to get up and go to school. Poor little punk.

Last night after City Boy got home from work, Darling opened up her gift from us. The trouble with being born so soon after Christmas is that you get your gifts wrapped in left over Santa Claus paper.


I could hardly wait for Darling to get her present. It was just as much for me as it was for her. City Boy had ordered it months ago and it had been sitting in our closet, just begging me to give it to her for the longest time. I was like a yappy little dog..."Can I give it to her now? Canicanicanihuh???"


As the paper fell off, a smile blossomed on her face. "Do you like it? Doyoudoyoudoyouhuh?"


Truth be told? I don't care if the little punk likes it. She can stop stealing mine now! And I won't ever have to have her whining over my shoulder again, saying...


"But Mom, I took that one!"


"Mom, that one was mine!"


"Mo-oooom! Stop stealing my pictures!"

Hee-Yup! I'm mighty happy she got herself a new camera, because I'm certain photos that fantastic should have been mine!

Wow! How cool is that! A new camera! First she steals your horse, then your camera, or was it the other way around? Anyways, now all you need to do is get your horse back!

What a great gift. Now...when is Darling going to start her own blog?

Tracey said...

Darling? Darling who??? Oh, yeah, the punkster. Yes, she was fiddling with blogger just the other night. Go. Go be her friend. Stalk her blog. Tell her I sent you. She loves that.

OH~ to have a camera like that at her age, I would have died! I thought I was pretty cool with my....Polaroid. LOL! Actually, the old film instants. I don't even know what we called them! I just got my first digital a year ago this recent Christmas. Can't imagine ever living without one!
Can't wait to see her blog~ very exciting!

I got my D5000 about 3 months ago - just watch - that little punk is going to blow me away on the learning curve in about 2 weeks flat. Kids.

I'd say a D5000 is a very special gift. Can't wait to see more of Tracey's photos. :)

I just found your blog and I saw the D3000 box and had to comment! I have one too and I LOVE IT! It was my birthday gift to myself.
