a poem by

By Gigi Littlejohn

I am scared sometimes
at sleepovers
But I am strong
I never give up
I know I am safe
I don’t think about being sad
or homesick
I think about nice things
like Disneyland
playing the Wii
going out to dinner
I have my blankie and my sucker
Then I go to sleep

(note from mom: Gigi had to write a poem about being courageous and strong to earn a badge for Girlscouts)

Sleeping Over

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
