Just Like Home… Kind of.

20151224_075144

Sometimes, when you have to go far away from your little house and your little bed, you have to stay at other places. I love my little bed at home, so I never sleep quite as well when this happens. I want to party and jump on the bed way past my bedtime, and my body wakes me up really, really early too. This means that I can be a bit grumpy on those mornings, and I can’t have that warm stuff called coffee to make me happy like Mama and Daddy.

What I can have, though, is a cold glass of orange juice and a giant waffle. In bed. Mama and Daddy never let me do at home, so it’s special. Those places are kind of like home, but with nice added things like breakfast in bed and cartoons in the morning. I like those special things, which Mama said you can call “perks.”

I like that, “perks.” Even though I don’t sleep as well in a giant bed that is not my own without my own fan sound and my own stuffed animal buddies surrounding me, the perks… they kind of make it all worth it. I’ll still be working on Mama and Daddy to have bed-waffles and juice at home, though, because why can’t we have relaxing, lazy mornings every day?

About doriandean

My name is Dorian Annabel. At 3-years-old, so much is new. I want to see, hear, and smell it all. I don't quite understand the "Internet" yet, but Mama says it's a way to see and touch the world, so I'm in. Since I'm still a little baby, my Mama and Daddy, Amy and Spenser Dean, are helping me to create this blog. My fingers just don't work quite fast enough yet.

    I had a little girl just like you Dorian, though now she is all grown up she will sleep for Britain! It means I get more rest, but I do miss those days…when she was just like you.

      Mama here, and I know that I will miss them, too when she gets big, and I know that day is coming faster than I want for it to as well. I do know, however, that late night toddler parties can be a bit tough going at times. 😉

        I have two daughters, my youngest is at uni and the subject in my post “Wishing”, and the oldest is training to be a teacher. Our relationship is good, and although their baby times were filled with wonder, each age will bring you joy. Keep taking your photos and building your wonderful blog. It will remind you of all those days that can easily turn to mist over the passage of time. Now Dorian will hear about it all too. 🙂

        It sounds as if both of your daughters are doing well, and that is my biggest wish for all of my children (I have four). I am now busy trying to absorb and remember every special moment, which is why I began the blog a year ago. I plan to keep this blog for the entirety of her youth and adolescence, but when she gets bigger I am going to make it a series of letters to her from me with pictures and my reflections. I started this for her to see and remember, and I am hoping that it will be a great gift to give her one day. I take so many pictures of her, a lot of which don’t make it here, that she will have an abundance of memories.

    Truly lovely! For children hotels are a real treat from time to time, but home will always be more important 🙂

      Hotels are a part of my daughter’s life because travel is important to us (and good for her), but yes, home is always great to come back to for her. She loves home base. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment.

        She’s getting a real travel! Loving to be on the road and loving to be home at least as much is just truly amazing 🙂 She’ll love to travel the world in the future and will always love to retrun home. Not a bad combination 😉

        Yes, she will, at least I hope so. Absorbing cultures from around the world is important for all of us, and we are working to instill that love early. 🙂 Home is important, but so is meeting as many people from as many places as possible.
