Thanks for all your comments on my blog name…it was good to get some positive feedback, I was really starting to get nervous about it. I would have to say that I am still slightly undecided, though I do think I will leave it for a little while. If you visit my blog sometime in the future and the title has changed you will know why!
I have to share a funny story with you because I keep thinking about it and every time I think about it I still laugh out loud.

Sunday morning I was getting dressed when Tryn came running into my room, “Mom!! Dad needs some abbacies!”

“What baby?”

“Some abbacies! Dad needs some!”

“What does he need, Tryn?”

Very earnestly and with all seriousness, “Some abbacies!”

“Dad needs some abbacies?”


“Tryn, I don’t understand what you are talking about. Dad needs abbacies?”

“Yes! We don’t have any. We don’t have any abbacies.”

Suddenly, I realized that Steve was in the shower, “Tryn, did Daddy say that he needs some privacy?”

“Yes! Some abbacies!”

She suddenly took off running out the door. I could hear her pitter patter back to the bathroom, then a yell, “Dad! We don’t have any! We don’t have any abbacies!” Muffled response from Steve.

A few minutes later she was back, shaking her head, “We don’t have any. I told Dad. We don’t have any abbacies.”

Haha! It still makes me laugh! I love this kid. The best part of it was how earnestly she wanted to help her daddy find what he needed.

Only a true mother would get privacy out of 'abbacies'.

Sara said...

So 'abbacies' actually meant 'privacy'? Wow!

Hi Heidi, I know we don't know each other very well, but I just wanted to let you know how thoroughly I enjoy reading your blog. I love all the adorable stories about your girls, especially this one! I also like reading all your "non-kid related" posts. Your blog was actually kind of what inspired me to write my own (though I don't have cute kids to talk about!) Anyway, I hope that doesn't sound weird and kind of encourages you in some way. Keep writing! You have a gift for it. Take Care
