She is full of spunk and she makes me very tired. I could write a book about the four short years she has been a member of this family.
After everyone was asleep last night and the house was quiet I sat in the chair thanking God for my three girls.
The drama almost makes me crazy, but I really wouldn't want it to be any other way.
I would love to share something extremely profound today, but instead I am going to share a little of my mom moments with this little girl.
She almost got her mouth washed out with soap for telling her sister that she hated her. (I have never actually used the soap. . .I can't imagine what it would be like to follow-through).
Later in the day I was giving her a bath. I had the shampoo in my hand and she said, "Is that the soap you were going to wash my mouth out with?"
I said, "No I was going to use the body soap so you better not ever say the word hate again."
She responds, "What about stupid?"
"No" I said, "You can't say stupid."
"What about dumb?" she asks.
"No, you can't say dumb either."
And so it goes in our house. Never a dull moment, but I love it.
I am unwrapping the precious moments of my girls childhood today with Emily at Chatting at the Sky. They aren't always easy moments or fun moments, but I cherish them all anyway.
