I'm so glad when daddy comes home

On Friday Amber started to sing "I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home" but wasn't sure of all the words so she asked me to help her. I didn't know the song so well myself and told her I wasn't sure what the words were. So then she said, "Grandma Mary will sing it to me." She then asked if we could call and have Grandma Mary sing it to her. We did and Amber was very happy while Grandma Mary sang it to her at least three times. Now that she knew all the words she kept singing it over and over again. It was so cute that I got it on video for all to see, especially Grandma Mary.

Here is happy Amber as she listened to Grandma Mary sing to her.

Sad story

So I just read the saddest story that Auntie Nettie linked to. It is a real tear jerker. So if you are interested in reading it yourself you may want to have a box of tissue close by. The story starts here on cjanerun and is still going on. It sounds like they are still in need of prayers and donations, whatever you can do can help this family.
If after reading that you need a pick me up here you go.

Do I really sound like that?

So Amber will sometimes talk to her toy friends like I talk to her. Most of the time it is about things we have done or that her toys need to hold her hand when they cross the road. Things like that are good to hear because then you know she is learning and understanding. But today's conversation with Curious George and monkey saddened me a little. It made me wonder - do I really sound like that? It went something like this:

Amber:"George you have to go to time out."

Amber to me:"George had to go to time out because he wouldn't listen."

Amber:"George you need to listen and be good. Hey, monkey you go to time out right now. Yes right now. You don't talk to me that way."

Amber to me:"George and monkey are in time out because they weren't being good girls."

Oh the good and bad example I set. It is a little funny to hear someone else playing you but it is also an eye opener. Parenting. No one is perfect right?
