Cowgirl Lidia......

This is one of the older blogs I wrote several years ago. It was written in March of 2007 about my little 3-year-old granddaughter, Lidia, and her very active imagination. I have other stories to share and will from time to time transfer them to LaLa’s Lane. This may be a repeat for some of you, but for those who haven't seen it it....hope you enjoy!

Cowgirl Lidia

Ropes. They have a multitude of uses and come in mighty handy at times. But, it takes the imagination of a 3-year-old to come up with the best.

Cliff and Lidia were outside one afternoon last week and while Cliff was busy working on something, Lidia was playing with a 3 foot piece of rope he had given to her about a week or so before. She had been trying to jump rope with it. You know…..the normal little girls games. But this child's imagination runs rampant sometimes, so it is no surprise that the piece of rope was conjuring up all sorts of things she could do with it.

I was checking on Sawyer who was napping at the time. Walking back and forth from the bedroom to the back door, I kept peeking outside to see what Lidia was up to and just so happen to look outside at the same time she tore off running across the backyard. She was headed straight for the barn and horse pasture. I immediately went into alarm mode! All I could think was that she was going to run in to the pasture, scare Sissy and get the life kicked out of her. So, I jerked opened the back door to yell for Lidia to come back and at the same time heard Cliff yelling for her, too. Nothing was slowing this little cowgirl down. So, Cliff took off running after her. He had a little bit of a hard time catching up to her, too, but made it to the edge of the pasture just as she did. Thank goodness!

Cliff scooped Lidia up and lingered out there for just a couple of minutes. Then, at last, I saw them walking back up to the house.

I asked, "What was that all about?" Cliff said, "She was just going to lasso the horses".

She's fearless, that cowgirl.

Til next time,
