When D#2 was a baby, I used to change her diapers on the long bathroom countertop. One memory I have is singing this song to her as I zipped up her one-piece jammies. To this day, she remembers me doing it, even though she was only about 18 months old. Just goes to show how a baby's mind takes things in, especially extremely pleasant experiences.
How does this fit into my theme for this round (my new life with Lorne)? Well, she has been a real trouper in accepting the fact that I've moved on with my life and she's happy that I'm happy. She's developing a very good relationship with Lorne and respects our relationship. So here's to a wonderful daughter and our memories of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."
May all our lives be filled with zip-a-dee-doo-dah moments!

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
