Ruh-roh, Raggy

The very first words that Maisie spoke this morning were “Mama, which would you like first, the good news or the bad news?”  Yes my heart skipped a beat but almost immediately I realized that nothing could be all that bad as it was only 6:15 and the girl hadn’t been out of bed yet.  One to always get the bad out of the way quickly I opted for the bad news first.  Spoken in a whispered tone with sad eyes and furrowed brow “today is the last day of spring break, how sad is that?”  So cute my girl and “bad” news like I can handle.  I then asked for the good news which was, “I get to return to school and regular gymnastics practice and spend all day with my friends again, yay!!”  Even with all the busy and fun activities of the week, it’s been since about Wednesday that Maisie has been ready to return to school, her regular schedule and to be with her friends & teammates again.  Maisie’s one very excited girl for her return to “normal”.  I’m telling you, the girl can say something to make my heart stop but then she just makes me smile. 

We laid in bed for quite a while (mainly because I was SO not ready to start my day and get out of bed at 6:15 on a Sunday!) talking about our week together.  Even though we didn’t travel anywhere, which was unusual for us, Maisie thought it a pretty awesome week and honestly, so did I.  Maisie had two stand out favorites for the week. 

IMG_6137Visiting with the horses at the stable where she’ll attend horseback riding camp this June was her number one favorite activity of the week.  I had no doubts that this activity would rank right up there as all she’s been talking about for weeks and weeks is going to horseback riding camp.  I’m pleased that she’s so excited and I hope that once she’s there she absolutely loves it. 

IMG_5981The other standout for the week was going bowling and spending time with Kelley.  The two girls really had a great time together, it was a fun day and Maisie’s really looking forward to playing with Kelley again.  

Me, well my favorite part of the week was all the time I got to spend with Maisie.  It was just girls as Eammon was in Houston for the week and we had fun, did whatever struck our fancy, had special treats eating out, played together, did crafts and spent time with some friends…a perfect week!

IMG_6317In other news, one week since starting our seeds and we have some seedlings.  Butternut squash (pink), watermelon (orange), gala melon (yellow) & long beans (green).  The peppers haven’t yet started sprouting but I’m sure it won’t be long before they begin.


Hard to believe, post number 10 and that I’m 1/3 of the way through M3’s Spring Fling! 30 posts in 30 days.  Shoot the last time I was able to get more than nine post up in an entire month was back in November 2010 so I’ve impressed myself and hope that I can keep going without having the blog read like you’re watching grass grow or paint dry!  Thank you to everyone who is commenting, I love reading your comments and it’s nice to know that people are reading and enjoying Moments with Maisie.  Also I appreciate the blog post suggestions, please keep them coming as I still have 20 posts to go this month.


  1. Keep going Lisa - love reading your 'stories' - makes my life seem so dull.

  2. Sounds like the perfect girl week. Hardly anything better than spending time with your best girl (or girls, in my case I guess).

  3. I agree with Maisie and the bad news. Today is a sad day - difference is, I'm not ready to go back to school tomorrow. I enjoy spending days with Z so much more.

    I do hope that Z will like school half as much as Maisie! :-)

  4. Sounds like a perfect week at home together. Maisie's good news and bad news is so cute. Just goes to show you how much Maisie loves school and gymnastics. Must make u feel good knowing how happy she is.

  5. Rachel was also talking about how life is about to go back to normal with Spring Break ending. I am so looking forward to summer now! Looks like you and Maisie had a perfect week. :)
