Mommying It Up

Theme Thursday - Pink

My baby girl...that's what this theme brings to my mind.

 It was strange becoming a mother because it all happened so quickly. Fall in love, Engagement. Marriage. Move to Guam. Mom's cancer. Move to Chula Vista. Teach kindergarten. Move to Meridian. Pregnancy. And then, miraculously, there she was: my dear little daughter.

Since we didn't know whether to expect a baby boy or a baby girl, a yellowy neutral, but very pretty, nursery awaited her. A cushioned rocking chair rested in the corner of the room while special-order yellow and white striped shades festivelycovered the windows. I was ready.

I held her, a pink wrapped miracle,  in my arms as we drove infant car seats at that time. And that's when the love of my life began.

That beautiful mother-daughter love connection has continued over the years. She has enriched my life in so many ways; now she is a mother herself, and I am the delighted grandmother of three darling boys. So the pink has turned to blue.

It's so fine. Mmm...hmm.


  1. This is so sweet : ) Children and grandchildren are the loves of our lives. I like that.

  2. You sound like a good mom, Jan. :)

  3. I don't know what I'd do without my darling daughter. Lovely post, Jan.

  4. The pink turned to blue, huh? :) What a sweet post. Happy TT! Love/ Jo.

  5. Keeping up with three boys? That sounds like black and blue to me...

  6. Lovely! My daughter, now in her 30s with children of her own, is a miracle to me. In fact, she has written a part of my post (at the bottom) on Pink.

    My post for Pink, close to my heart, is up here.

  7. Lovely. I wish I had a daughter, but after 4 boys, better not try again! haha. Sweet pink post!

  8. what loving parent to your little girl,
    precious pink post!


    mine is here,
    thank you in advance for reading it.

  10. I love that you slip 'move to Guam' in there as if it's what all young mums do! You and I are blessed to have terrific daughters . . although my nursery was primaries. Must admit I did cut Adam's hair as a toddler because people thought he was a girl!


Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
