Happy Friday! (+ Beating Records and M's New Favorite Parent)

Okay, let's try this again.  I actually posted a version of this post yesterday, but it did some kind of disappearing act as I was fiddling with the Blogger app yesterday afternoon. So I'm posting it again (with an addition here or there).

Okay, I remember mentioning the time change, and how it's taken me a few days to get used to it.  I've given my alarm clock the side-eye every day this week.  And by the day's end, I've been completely exhausted.  But today is Friday, and I feel great.  But then again, maybe it's because today is Friday...

I ran four days straight this week just so I could take Saturday off (got a date with my peeps!).  I usually take a day off between Monday and Thursday. I didn't feel like running at all a couple of days this week, but decided at the last minute that I'd feel better afterwards.  I was right.

Speaking of running, I forgot to mention last week that I'd done one of my March runs (for bling).

I didn't beat my best time, but I managed to beat two of my own records (1K and 1 mile).  Apparently at one point during the run, I was jogging my fastest ever.  So beating records, even small ones, feels kinda good.

On a completely different note, here's a picture of my sweet girl this morning.

I was tickled because she chose Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to take for Show-and-Tell today...just in time for...SPRING. Ha!  My intention was to get a pic of her and ol' Rudolph, but somehow he never made it to the pic.

My sweet girl is becoming a daddy's girl these days, and that makes me a little sad. I knew it would happen eventually, but it doesn't mean I was ready for it. Don't get me wrong -- I think the daddy's girl concept is really sweet.  To me it means a little girl adores her daddy in a way much different than everyone else, and that she begins to favor her daddy over most others - including her mama.  And that's the part that's been more apparent around my house.  M's been choosing her daddy for things she used to choose me for.  And I don't think it's necessarily jealously (at least not very much of it).  It's more of seeing her grow up and not depend on ME for everything that hurts my heart a little.

It's funny because DK and I had always made a game of it...I would poke fun at him every time M chose me -- which was most of the time. Now that the tables are turned, the game's not so fun anymore. Womp!

Ah, well.  I guess I need to suck it up.  At least she still depends on me for some things. Even if it is stuff like this:

Me *Taking a nice, hot shower.  Literally the only time I'm alone all day.*

Someone walks into the bathroom (I should lock it).  I see a tiny shadow through the shower curtain.

Her:  "Mommy, I'm thirsty."

Me:  "Um, did you ask your daddy?"

Her: "No, ma'am, daddy's busy."  

***Watching TV, y'all.  DK is watching TV.  My showering doesn't qualify as busy.*** 

Me:  "Okay, I'll be out in a sec..." or if I'm just getting in the shower, "Go ask your daddy!"

I guess I should be glad that she still thinks that I'm never too busy for her. Ha!

Have a great weekend, y'all!
