Our Little "Glirl"

With today being D-Day (well it was when I started this post) I couldn't help but think of my Grandfather who was one of the many soldiers who stormed Omaha beach 65 years ago. So in remembrance of him I had to post this picture of our little girl.


As a little girl my grandfather would always tease my sisters and me (there were 4 of us) and call us "boys." We always tried to tell him we were not boys we were girls but he insisted on calling us boys. It especially upset my sister Becky, who is just one year younger than me. She was always quiet, so much so, that we often had people ask us if she could talk. She could, but she didn't need to since I so lovingly did it all for her. :) But when Grandpa called us boys she would pipe right up. She would always very adamantly tell Grandpa, "We are NOT boys, we are GLIRLS!!" That's not a typo, I do mean "Glirls." She couldn't say girls so it always came out sounding funny. Grandpa would always tease her saying, "Glirls? What's that?" She would always get so upset trying to explain everything to him and then he would continue to call us boys. Grandpa's not around anymore but if he was I know he would love this shirt. It makes me think of him every time I see it. I knew the first time I ever saw this shirt we had to have it, not only because of Grandpa, but also because of being in a family with so many brothers. We thought it was important to make sure people knew she wasn't a boy too. When we go out many people will comment and say things about us having only one girl and so may boys. Being the only one though she is going to be very spoiled. She has all her brothers (and her Dad) totally wrapped around her finger. She is definitely our little princess! (Hey, if she's a princess then as her mother that makes me a queen:) )

Speaking of little princesses and brothers we love this commercial-- even the boys. Things like this never happen at our house. :)
