Emotional Spectrum

It was a pretty crazy day around these parts yesterday. I'll start with the happy happy news. My little teensy tiny bundle of smiles had her first bite of cereal! Yay!! Of course she spit it all out about fifty times while I scooped it back in, but I insist thats a natural tongue movement and not disgust.

On the sad side of the spectrum, the world lost a great great man. Uncle Freddie, brad's great uncle on his moms side, passed away. Not too many of my people got the chance to meet him. Ill tell you a few of the many wonderful things about him.
He greeted every woman he knew with a kiss on both cheeks.
He never let the moment slip by to tell you how beautiful or handsom you looked.
He knew every Tony award winner since the beginning of time!
He sang show tunes at random moments and made happy birthday sound like a masterpiece.
He had the funniest jokes and they were just a little dirtier than you would expect.

In his day Uncle Freddie was quite the star.If you want to get a small glimpse of his shining spirit(and I recommend you do) you can see him in the movie "The RM." He plays the crazy grandpa who wants to serve everyone half cooked hamburgers.LOL.

I loved Uncle Freddie and am so honored I got the chance to know him. I want to end on a happy note. So when Caydance was upset because she couldnt visit Uncle Freddie in Heaven, we explained to her that hes happy up there and with the people he loves. Caydanc will now tell you "Uncle Freddie lives in Heaven with Jesus and his Mommy but we cant sleepover."

Aww...Katydid is such a sweetie.
Please convey my condolences to Brad. I know Uncle Freddie was a favorite family member.

P.S. Thena Bean pushing the food back out might be a sign that she isn't developmentally ready for cereal yet. So say the experts. Not me. The REAL experts. LOL

Our condolences go out to you and Brad's family. I hate it when family and friends pass away. It's so hard.
It's great you're keeping his memory alive. Will have to check out that movie.
