I'm a big scary bear!

My mom says I have to grow up fierce. Know what I want. Play hard. Be strong. Don't back down, but know when to accommodate others. Sounds like a lot, but it sounds good to me.

This is me having a bad day.

Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis? I mean, what is WITH people??? How come they can't seem to make up their minds about their relationships BEFORE they enter into real estate transactions??? When my mom told me we weren't going to be flying home with Daddy this evening, this is the look I gave her.

I was NOT happy with those dummyhead buyers for backing out of their promise to buy our house. My mom was real mad and then real sad. My dad just seemed...shocked. And probably pretty bummed too. Especially because we saw a really awesome apartment today that I would have liked to live in. It had hardwood floors upstairs and carpet downstairs for me to learn how to crawl on. And lots of space for all of us. Now we can't get it because our house isn't selling. And while I like Mimi & Poppi a lot, we really need our own space. It's hard to get into a good routine here.

I'm real sad that I won't get to see all my adopted aunts and uncles and cousins this weekend. I hope I get to see you all soon. Maybe come visit us here in Chicago. Although if we don't get our own space soon, you may have to stay with my Aunt Amy and Uncle Kevin. That's ok though--they have lots of space and are good cooks too.

Guess I'll have to write more now that I won't get to see you guys. Hey--you should write back! Go ahead and post something cool for me to remember one day.

Let's Have a Party!

We're coming back! We're coming back! We're coming back! Well...for a couple of days anyway. I know it's not ideal, since Mom and I don't get in until Wednesday night late, and we're leaving Saturday morning, early...but hopefully I'll get a chance to hang out with some of my east coast "aunts and uncles" while I'm there.

My mom and dad and I are flying out Wednesday, September 12th and get in real late at night. Hopefully someone will stay awake late enough to come get us from LaGuardia airport. Then we have lots of work to do on Thursday and Friday, packing up a U-haul truck, cleaning up the house, and saying goodbye to our neighborhood. My dad has to get on the road early Saturday so he can make it home with all our stuff in time to unload the truck and go back to work on Monday morning. Yuck!

So, it looks like really the only nights we can hang out are Thursday and Friday. If anyone wants to come help my mom and dad I'm sure they would appreciate it. Even if it's just to hold me for a while so they can work! I'm always up for a new face to smile at. And I love to smile!
