I love my daughter Jessie the best.

Sure...I love all the rest of the kids. And my grandkids. And my husband. And possibly even my weiner dog, Oskar.

But you know how a Mom isn't supposed to have favorites?

Well...I'm going to have to be honest here and tell you...

That I do have a favorite.

And it is our oldest daughter Jessie.

Sometimes she's not my favorite...but don't tell her that. Let her bask in the glory of being the favorite for a day.

OK, goodbye.

...

...

Huh?

Oh, yeah.

She is my favorite today because she is a "Craft-Tea Girl"!

And because she is a "Craft-Tea Girl" she has a "Craft-Tea" post on her seldom used blog. It's about making this......for a special gift.

And because she has a "Craft-Tea" post on her seldom used blog I do not have to write a blog today at all...and I can just link you to her post.

Because I am feeling at a loss for words this morning.

No, it is not because I was up all night immitating a camel braying.

It is because I am silent today. And refelective. And a woman of few words.

In fact, I should link this post to Wordless Wednesday. (cough, cough)

Excuse me for a moment.

Do you know that your nose DOES NOT GET BIGGER WHEN YOU LIE? I just had to check in the mirror for a moment. Thank heavens for that because mine is already plenty big enough.

But anyway because my favorite daughter put up this post for a cool craft I can just send you over there and spend an extra hour laying in bed.

Dreaming of camels. Praying that another one of my kids will start a blog so I don't have to post on Friday either.

Oh, but I will definitely rouse myself on Thursday and put up a stunning "E" post for Alphabe-Thursday. Oh yea. I have got one killer post coming...you will be amazed and astounded and...

What?

No my nose is not growing.

OK, I just didn't want to ruin your image of me as always being full of words...(hey, that wasn't nice...I said words!) so how can I confess to you that I have nothing for "E"? Nada. Zip. Squat.

But I will.

Oh I will.

Game on.

And don't forget to visit Jessie's blog. You can go there by just clicking here!

Cuz it is a cool craft she came up with AND

She is my favorite...

Sigh...

PS And click on the picture that shows the inside of the tea-pot.

I'm telling ya, this girl is clever! Oh, and did I mention...she is my favorite!

Okay~~ Jenny...again, you simply made me laugh this morning! I just know that I will be on your site everyday...I had a thought... you missed your calling-you need to be doing stand-up or writing a column in a newspaper because you are so incredibly entertaining. I said this same thing about Ellen Degeneres in the early 90's and look where she is now. I can pick em, I tell ya. (maybe you can get your own show)?????
Have a WONDERFUL DAY !!

I needed a good laugh this afternoon. The teapot is a great idea. We do memory jars here...but, I love the idea of putting the notes in the teapot.

You're funny! You know, MY mom always said she didn't have favorites, but I suspected differently!! It's so clear that I am far superior to my siblings, how could she not love me best?! Thanks for confirming my suspicions!

Hope your camel braying is up and running again soon!!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Jenny!
This is so sweet! I love her six-tea idea and all the little notes inside.
What a busy weekend I had..hubby was home three days so we did a lot of chores around the house together that we've been neglecting.

Hope you had a good Valentine's Day!

This week is flying by so I diodn't get a chance to do an "E" post as yet! ack!

Jess Herbig said...

It's because her name is Jessica, definately, I think. :)

Mumsy said...

Yes, I'm laughing too! I better check my nose once of these days to see if it gets bigger when I'm pulling a string on the kids..Fun post, Jenny!

Just Joany said...

Well, then, what's making my nose grow? That's all I wanna' know.

I went to your favorite child's post and enjoyed it very much. I'm now turning my own age back, in case she wants to do that for me. This could take awhile, though.
