Wedding Bells

My cousin Lyndee is getting married, and she just called and she just asked if Madi would be her flowergirl! I'm so excited! This will be Madi's second time to be a flowergirl. She was beautiful the first time, but she was 2 1/2...which was very challenging.

At rehearsal I told her to be quiet and listen for directions. She immediately responds, "you mean don't say din'nt." The translation for that would be the "d" word. I know you all think I'm perfect, and as hard as I try, I'm not. There have been occasions when a bad word has come out of my mouth. When Madi was 18 months old, the "d" word slipped out, and I kid you not she has remembered it ever since. I was praying to God that while in the Baptist church my child would not start yelling the "d" word. And you know as it goes, when you don't want them to, they will.

In fact when I say, be on your best behavior to her, she always comes back with her list of words that we shouldn't say. "Mom, you mean don't say din'nt, shut-up, stupid, oh my gosh, oh my god, or butt?" Going over the list completely defeats the purpose!!!

Anyways, hopefully with her being 5 now it won't be quite so dramatic. I just know she will love dressing up like a princess.

I didn't realize Lyndee was getting married. I just talked to her Tuesday. That's weird!

As I was reading this, I automatically thought of Madi and the "D" word when she was in that wedding; then you wrote about it...wow! Anyway, I just read your last two posts and I'm honored to be one of your rocks. It's been a tough six months, but I think it's been good for us as sisters. I'll probably never get around to writing a blog that deep, but if I did, you would be one of my rocks too!
