Wistful Wednesday : Savannah

The little girl that used to come in the door and holler UM’s and run to her Grandpa’s office… and get M and M’s out of the machine that sat on his desk.  All the time she could spend drawing on pieces of paper taped to her high chair using big girl markers.  The days she spent with us when her parents went on vacation and we let her have a special rock to pee on…they returned and took the rock and the potty trained little girl home with them.   The phone rang the next day “You are in big trouble, she showed the whole neighborhood how the pee rock works.”

Savannah unknown year Possibly 1997

She went to first grade in Lombard Illinois. I Pledge Savannah

She was a lefty…still is…I have learned not to sit a lefty and a righty next to each other at the dinner table.

So now she graduates from High School.  I don’t know where the time went…Savannah (1 of 1)

She will pursue a degree in Elementary Education.  When she gets her degree and a job some children will be blessed to have her for a teacher.

The first of “the five grands” to graduate from High School!  We are so very proud of her!

  7. Don't quite understand how the pee rock works? Did you put it in the potty or was it a big rock to sit on? Please elucidate. Sounds like a great idea and so original.

    1. It was a rock she picked out we kept in the yard and she could squat down and pee on it when ever she wanted...of course we live in the boonies:)

My daughter is an elementary art teacher and I feel the same way...she loves those kids and now has 2 of her own also. Congratulations to all of you..."it takes a village to raise a child"...looks like you all did a wonderful job.
    Love the "pee rock" story...great idea....I'll tell my daughter as she is potty training the youngest this summer while she's off.
