People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

More Reganisms

Regan calls older women grandmas and yesterday was no exception. We were at the park and an older lady was there with her grankids. Regan goes up to her and shows her the sticks she had been collecting and calling her grandma. She got stuck on the ladder and was calling out "Help grandma-friend". I went over to her and said that I could help her, but she adamantly stated that she wanted grandma-friend to help her, which is what she does when her real grandmas are around anyway. Bless that old ladies heart, she was as nice as could be to her. Today I was talking to Regan about praying when we need help and she reminded me that she was stuck on the bars and was calling to grandma-friend to help her.
For the last month or so, when Regan has been sad and can't find me she'll say, "I want mama de Kristo (mama the Kristal)." "I was looking for you mama de Kristo". What the!?!?! Cracks me up everytime!!

That really is so cute! I love the cute things kids say, won't it be so sad when they can say everything correctly?

I have the most Freakin' cute nieces!!! Regan is so funny, I love all of her little quotes. Especially the one she says about Skyler. "Where's the big guy"?
Her hair is getting so long and beautiful. I can't believe she is going on 3 yrs. old already. I hope you are keeping all of her cute sayings on paper.

Okay, so at first I was like, "What the? When did Regan learn Spanish?" with her "mama de Kristo. :) What a cutie! She makes me laugh. I'm totally looking forward to Saturday, watching Nacho Libre and eating more pizza that I should! I'm so lucky to have you here to hang out with!

I love it! She is so cute! I'm so glad you wrote that one down--that needs to be remembered. Her hair is getting so long and looks a little strawberry blonde (or is it just the lighting)? She is a cutie!

Mama de Kristo,
I'm glad you're writing all of these things down. One of these days she will thank you for it!
Love,
Aunt Friend

P.S. Who says you have to spend money for entertainment?

I love the Reganisms you record for our enjoyment--for every one you write down, there are dozens you could have! She's so funny. I also love everyone else's comments. You are so blessed to have many good friends and family. Love Grandma de Greer

She is freakin' Hilarious, every Reganism just makes me laugh. She is such a cutie, look at that long hair, holy cow!

Kelly said...

I can't believe how long her hair is getting. What a beauty! Eva will randomly talk about Regan and "Baby Soapie" She even remembers that they were at their grandma's house the last time you came over. They have obviously made a big impression on her :)

So cute. I am sure her grandma friend loved it.
