Today as I was pulling away from my moms house, Linley screams out the car window "Holla at a playa if you see him on the streets, Nana!". Seriously. Was I surprised? Nah, I love the word "Holla" and have even gone so far as to encourage Linley to follow up the word "Dollar" with "Holla" each time because I believe somewhere down the line she may have a career as a rapper. Okay, that's not really true but I do think she is awfully cute with her street cred.

Perhaps she has been throwing this street lingo out at school and really impressed the teacher. I say this laughingly because Linley was just named Student of the Month at her elementary school because apparently she exemplifies being Responsible. And she is. I love that she wants to be in charge and helpful and I love that her teacher is encouraging Linleys ability to do what is expected of her with a cheerful heart.

Once again I am reminded of how blessed this sweet 5 year old has made me. And if she makes mad cash as a rapper while balancing her spouse and children and home, I will be a very, very happy "playa".


  1. She looks just like your mom, that's the funny thing! White as can be and beautiful with her sweetness :)
