get to start my weekend off. And about time! Got to the house, kicked my boots off, and got ready to be confused by the idiot box to unwind. Then it happens.......

Youngest daughter who is in 8th grade starts the fashion parade. Tonite is her 1st school dance at the school cafeteria. She must had paraded 4 different outfits for comments.Gets settled on one, then changes the shoes. Shoes don't look right with the shirt so the shirt changes. Now the earrings don't look right so they got to go. OOP's, now the neckless ain't right so that's got to be changed. After all that, the shoes are wrong again and goes back to 1s choice.....AUGERHHH!!!!!
She is so excited about the dance she is literally bounceing off the walls. :)
So with an escort she is taken to the cafeteria. Plenty of school teachers there to chaparone so all is well. Disappear to not embarass her. Besides, what boy would talk to her with daddy deputy watching? (hmmm, maybe this is a good thing........) :twisted:

Settle back into te recliner and more confusion sets in. The new Battlestar Galactia is on tonite, but so is Ben Hur, and so is Midway 360. Great, three good shows all on at the same time. Took to Batlestar as i'm a sci-fi nut.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day. Got to go to the big city for a bit and then hope to fish........

When they're grown and gone, you're gonna miss all of this but you will have warm memories.

Just give Her all the attention, & love You can, for as long as You can. I lost My youngest Daughter to a blood clot at the age of 34, almost exactly two years ago. I'd give anything to be watching Her doing those exact things again, right now !! It is so hard, even now after two years !! I was having a very bad night tonight thinking about Her, & I came upon Your post. Just reading about Your little girl, made Me think back a few years. Just had to comment. I guess God knew I needed a little pressure release !

We also lost a Son, just three months old, in 1965, & We werent even over that one yet. Now I must go on living without another Child. I'd sooner it would have been Me. So, You pay all the attention to that little girl that You can !! Enjoy Loving Her. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

God Bless ;
Jim

I am sorry for your loss.....

oh i am enjoying these times really. :D I have 4 children. 3 girls and 1 boy. The two youngest girls are still at home with me. This young one is a carbon copy of her ma-----right down to the fashion statements.

But asking daddy about fashion???? she gets that from her ma. When i give an honest opinion, i get that deer in the headlight look.......... :?

Say its ok, and then get that you don't know anything look. ;)

My youngest daughter(Virginia Grace) has had some medical problems since she was born. She's come a long way and we are very proud of her. She is growing up fast and has a good heart. She is strictly a girl so to speak and its something to watch her work the hound of a $20 bill in some of them shops in the mall in the big city. She likes a junk---i mean jewelry shop called clares'. Gonna have to pick up another jewelry box probably.

Glad ya'll liked to hear about my evening with my daughter. ;)

Deputy, I'm glad Friday worked out well for you. My wife and I don't have any kids, but one of these days, well you never know.

Jim I'm sorry for you loss. I'm just glad this site provided something more than passing entertainment for you. It just proves that if a good bunch of people get together in one place (even on the net), well good things can happen.

Deputy, you're at a good place right now seems like. I'm glad for ya. There are a lot of families out there right now that are not. Seems no one has time for family anymore. :(

Jim, I'm very sorry for your loss. I have never experienced the loss of a child and can only imagine the pain.

I will never forget the first time my daughter was invited to the school prom. The guy looked like a hybrid between beevus and buthead. I turned and looked my daughter in the eye ,when she introduced him to me. I put my arm around the shoulder of the boy and said, '' come with me just a minute ...over here beside my truck.'' I told him how to treat my daughter with the utmost respect.....and what would happen if he failed to do so. The boy got her home at the set time that I allowed....and never came around again. Daughter was a little embarresed but, it was for the good of all concerned. lol......that was twenty years ago. We chuckle about that often.

If he skeered off that easily, he didn't deserve her....

deputy125, due to divorce and some shenannigans by my ex, I missed my daughter's life from7 through 29----now I got her back and I'd give my left...and right one for every missed memory...I know you were just funnin'....and dontcha have no good channels down there? Someday when you're heading to big D...call me and we'll get lunch or supper....sans your fares, of course.....

Jim, my heart aches with you....I definitely want to go before mine do....almost lost my 15-year-old when he was a week old due to major heart defects corrected by surgery....I thank God for every minute with him...he's fine today....hope you have lots of great memories to ease the pain.....

Unless You've experienced it, there is no way I can even acurately communicate the feelings You have when something like that happens. Luckily though, a local church has a support group that meets once a month, & other members are always there when needed. It is all parents who have lost children. But there are times when no amount of support is enough to ease the pain.
We have absolutely Great memories, but even those hurt sometimes. Our Daughter was a Pastor's Wife, & loved Our Lord & Savior, So I am confident I will see Her again some day ! That alone keeps Us going at times.

Thank You for caring ;
Jim
