I knew, we all knew, from the very first day that there was something very special about this adorable little 8lb baby girl that had just emerged into the world. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, and quite honestly, to this day I still haven’t figured it out, but THIS child has been and will be like none other. She will be a trailblazer, a force, a movement. You know how people stand around for days at a time waiting for the brand new baby to open their eyes? Well, Ms. Lauren Ann didn’t sleep AT ALL for at least the first 24 hours. When I tell you the child had her eyes open and was focusing within a few hours, please believe I’m not exaggerating. I have witnesses.
Four years into the game, and after months and months of Facebook statuses devoted to my firstborn and our journey through this thing called life, and constant pressure from friends and family to write a book, get her in commercials, take her to a modeling agency, etc., etc., etc., we arrive here. A whole entire blog devoted to my Munchkin, her -isms and what I’ve learned about life while trying to teach her.
Through this blog, I hope to share some of my Munchkin’s wisdom so that she can bless/inspire/stimulate/encourage/activate more than just the other 4 Vaughts in our household and who they encounter.
