Tiny girl, Big heart

Tonight, while tucking our sweet girl into bed she said "Mom, when I get bigger, I want to take care of sick kids like you and make them better like you do. And Mom, when I get bigger, I want to be a mom like you too"

I told her "that's a great idea, I would love if you took care of sick kids like mama does and if you are a mom someday when your older, much older! That would make me so proud to have you do the same things I do. Being a mom is the BEST thing ever."

"Yeah but if I'm ganna work, I'm ganna need to learn to drive. If I drive, I'm ganna need a car"

And so it begins, our four year old thinking about her future.


  1. I read the article in the Aug. 27, 2013 edition of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. I met Gary Wetzel (awarded the Medal of Honor from his Vietnam experience) and I know underneath the crusty appearance is a guy with a good heart. I, too, am a Vietnam combat vet having served on an M48A3 tank with the 11th ACR in '67 & '68. I guess partly because of Gary's involvement, I hopefully made a significant contribution toward Bella's camp fund...John Hien (jkhien@att.net)

    1. John,
      Gary is a fantastic man and we enjoyed meeting him. My dad had a "Crusty" appearance too, underneath was a man who would give you the shirt off of his back! We embrace crusty appearances. Thank you for your donation but more importantly, thank you for serving our country!
