Cheaper IS Better

The other day we were all eating dinner as a family, one of my favorite things to do. All of a sudden Caleb started screaming and would not eat, very unusual for Bubby. I thought he wanted bread, but no, more screaming. I tried to let him feed himself, but no, more screaming. Then I though maybe he was thirsty so Rondell got his brand new sippy Nuby cup and filled it with watered down juice, but no, more screaming. After looking at him and going with Mommy instinct I realized that it was JAMISON's cup that he wanted. The cheap princess cup that I bought her for Christmas (I mean SANTA bought her). I thought to myself "no, he won't be able to drink from this cup, he has to start of with these expensive starter cups for babies." HA! I asked Jamison if Caleb could have her juice and she said "yes" and he sucked that juice down like he's been drinking from those cups for years. So I guess in this case cheaper is better.

Can I call you Juanita?

One of the main reasons that I created this blog was so that people who do not get to see the kids on a regular basis can stay updated on their lives. One person that first came to my mind was my grandmother, Granita. When I was little I asked her what her name was. She told me "Juanita." I asked her "can I call you Juanita?" She said "no." So I said, "I'll call you Granita, for Grandma and Juanita." I was so creative if I do say so myself. Well, this past Saturday the Lord came to get Granita to be with Him. So, I really hope that Heaven is wired so that she can read my posts from her chair!

I will miss you Granita! You will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart.
