Lauren. If I had to describe the child in one word it would be Difficult. All. Summer. Loooong. Last summer was a challenge for Abby, so I am taking a leap of faith in casting Lauren's behavior in a light I can swallow.... This is just a phase. And most likely it is. But it isn't a phase that is easy for any of us to live through; ask my parents. Or honestly, anyone who has come in contact with the child for any length of time. Difficult is being kind.
Underneath it all is a smooshy, mooshy, loveable little girl who oozes kind words just when you need her to fill up your heart in a way that only she can. Mixed with a shot of sarcasm and that little stinker of a smile, here is a list of Lauren's recent I Love Youisms:
"I love you a hunderd million.... Even when you're dead you'll still be in my heart."
"I love you, but today you're making me have a issue."
"I love you more than a Kleenex."
"I love you more than your dog."
"I love you more than a leaf."
....and last but not least, the ever confusing
"Even I love you more than five."
Seriously. Where or where did this child come from?!
