We have been so blessed to have such wonderful sweet kids. They love to make cards and write notes to my husband and I. They write the sweetest notes or say the sweetest things and I am planning to write down what they have said or scan all their notes. Here are a few things they have written or said lately:
Our oldest daughter “I” (6) wrote:
Thank you for working so hard for our family to take care of us. We love you so much and we are so happy to have you.
We love you!”
“When we were out (born) we saw a beautiful Mommy.”
She drew a beautiful rainbow below her note.
Our second oldest daughter “S” (4) wrote:
“I (heart) you dad.”
With the help of her big sis they wrote:
“We are happy to have you mom.”
Our oldest son “K” (3) tells me almost every day:
“You’re pretty mommy!”
He is such a daddy’s helper and he tries to fix things around the house with his toy tools. He always says, “I fixed it like daddy,” or “I am strong like daddy!”
Our youngest “I” (19 mos.):
Loves to snuggle up with daddy and climb all over daddy as soon as he hears the garage open he is usually at the door waiting anxiously and he squeals the loudest of all the kids, ”Daddy!”
He is aware of the baby in my tummy, but he pushes my belly button and says,
“Hi baby,” and kisses my belly.
Some days are more stressful than others and I lose my patience more easily but at the end of the day, when I have the time to relax, I love to sit with my husband and discuss things they did or said that were funny or cute. We share a laugh and also remind each other how sweet they are and things we need improve on with raising them.
Sometimes I think it is we parents who are teaching our kids life lessons or about Jesus Christ. But I am realizing that my children already are the greatest examples of pure love. I hope to be more like my children, so that I can be more like my Savior too.
