Who is Going to Play With Me?

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12

Yesterday morning I got up early to have a little quiet time. I had about an hour, but I wanted more. However, I am a mom of an early riser and she likes to have a playmate. She started in at 8:30, "I want to go through the sprinkler."

I said, "No, it is only 8:30." She is very persistent and she did not give up. I was really trying to be patient. I really did not do a very good job. We ended up waking up her sister in the process of discussing that it was too early to get out the sprinkler. Eventually she did get her way and they did have fun. However, it wasn't until late afternoon that I let her get her swimsuit on.

This morning my older daughters are both at a friend's house. They had a sleepover last night. This morning I got up even earlier and I had about an hour and a half all to myself. This morning little one was ready to pick up her sisters at 8:30. "Who is going to play with me?" I said, "me". So we started our day playing Polly Pockets.

I have a million things to do, but how do you resist this face.

I am trying to learn to have patience and just play.

Last week I ordered a t-shirt from Faith Baby. I think that I need one in an adult size for myself. I absolutely love it. Nadia does, too. And I think it suits her perfectly. You need to take some time to check out the Faith Baby site. My order came in a couple of days. Talk about great service. Thanks Steph!

Nadia found seven quarters this morning and told me she was taking her dad and I to Dairy Queen for lunch and she is paying. :-)

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
Blessings, Amy

We definitely need to stop and take time to be with our kids. The to-do list can wait! :) She is adorable!

What a beautiful post! You are so right to stop and play with your lovely daughter. I played fire engines with the kids the other day and is was so much fun! We don't do it enough sometimes!

When we think we have a million things to do, isn't funny that our kids are the ones to remind us to take time and play.

PS I too have a dd who bugs me daily about play dates.
