Well, I never thought there'd be another woman in my husband's life but he just can't hide his feelings any longer. Today he actually called me from the mall where he'd been shopping for her! Can you believe it?!?!?! I've seen her and she's beautiful.....long blonde hair, big blue eyes, killer smile, and a diva if I've ever seen one....how can I compete with that? She came into his life about 4 1/2 years ago and it was love at first sight. Of course, I have to admit, I love her too! Have you guessed who she is? It's our little granddaughter, Taylor Elizabeth! She has her Pop wrapped around her little finger. Just to show you how much, let me tell you why he called me from the mall today.
A few weeks ago, he and a few of his guy friends went to eat at the mall for lunch. He was sitting across from the Build-A-Bear store and the Hannah Montana bear caught his eye. He bravely got up and went into the store to inquire about the Hannah Montana bear. Taylor has recently discovered Hannah Montana and all she can do is sing that song "The Best Of Both Worlds" . Her ballet/tap class even danced to it last week at parent's day. She was in heaven....but let me get back to the bear story. Over the weekend, hubby was anxious to get the bear "before they sell out". So today, he went back to the mall to get the bear and here's what he did in the name of love for her:
First you pick out the bear...in this case...Hannah Montana bear.
Then you pick up a heart for the bear and here's the part I would have given anything to see:
1. He put the heart on his head so she'll be smart
2. Put the heart on your elbow (funny bone) so she'll have a sense of humor
3. Finally put the heart close to his heart, closed his eyes and made a wish then placed the heart inside the bear.
Wouldn't you have loved to be in a Build A Bear store and see this big burly man doing all that for one little girl?
So here's how hubby summed up his experience:
Hannah bear - $22.00
Sequin guitar outfit - $13.50
Silver ballet flat = $6.00
Silver gem purse - $6.00
"Best of Both Worlds" song - $5.00
Long blonde wig - $6.00
Total cost: $59.50 (plus tax)
The look on Taylor's face on Christmas - PRICELESS!
Now if that ain't love, I don't know what is!
