"Sometimes really little things make me so happy," Saige says to me completely out of the blue as we were driving down the road today.
I have said this a million times. Little, seemingly ridiculous things give me unbelievable pleasure. So it delighted me to hear her say this totally without warning.
"Really, like what?" I ask.
"Well, the other day I was with Amanda at her club and they made frozen drinks," she said.
"That sounds nice."
"Yes, well I got a Pina Colada and Amanda got a Strawberry Daquiri and we had the new issue of Teen Vogue and we just lied on the lounge chairs in the sun and drank our drinks and read our magazine."
"That sounds like the perfect afternoon," I say.
"It was," she said smiling with a faraway look in her eyes.
What's that saying about the apple not falling far from the tree.
We spent the day at the beach with one of my friend Colleen and her daughter who I have loved since she was born. I even picked her name, Jordan. She was the first baby I knew. She was the reason I wanted a daughter so much. She's 14 now. Gorgeous and sweet and such a great kid. Watching her and Saige talk about boys and scope out the cute ones was amusing.
Until I saw this...
Yeah, I will be, Lifeguard With the Ponytail. You betcha.
