Seven Quick Takes: Memorable Moments
Thanks to Jen at Conversion Diary for hosting. :-)
This week there was nothing earth shaking happening at our house, but sometimes it's all about the little moments.
1. Marty was being carried somewhere by one of his aunties. Apropo of nothing, he popped his head up and said "HEY! Imma love you!"
2. Upon being given a donut, Kittybean (15mo) made happy smacking sounds with her mouth, punctuated by waving her arms in the air. This is her rendition of the "happy dance."
3. At a coffee shop, I was putting cream and sugar in my coffee. My curious Robbie was watching and started commenting. "Don't put in too much sugar." "Why do you need that much cream?" "I think that's enough cream now, Mom. You should stop now." Because a six year old who has never tasted coffee is of course an expert.
4. Girls' night at the cafe with dessert and coffee was awesome. My girlfriends are wise, geeky, and the perfect group for me. Not to mention funny and supportive. Love 'em to pieces.
5. While I was watching my son do his work sheet, he looked up and smiled ear to ear. He loves his homeschooling.
6. Bri actually asked for more school work after she finished her quota. Her sister grabbed her crayon and, instead of coloring on her sister's worksheet, made coloring motions over where Bri had already colored. She's getting it!
7. Every day there are little moments where my kids interact with each other that warm my heart. Yes, four is a lot and five will be more. Yes, they keep me busy and a little tired. But they fit together like puzzle pieces. They love and help each other. They belong together.
