Oh darn it...see I missed February! Sigh. The best of intentions...anyways moving along. Its March already...we are so ready for Spring. Actually as I type this Brett & the children are outside riding bikes, power wheels and playing football. Its still chilly, too much for my "wish I lived in the South" veins. Here comes S...super tired. And now E...hungry...and I think I can keep a blog up...haha!
Well, I was wanting to write about how much I LOVE being a Mom...how much I love the challenge of learning new things like cooking for a large family, organizing clothes & shoes, thrifty savings, behavior challenges, teenage craziness and encouraging others Mommas. So, I'll just write about this morning.
Z gave her up opportunity to crack the egg into the pancake batter to E! Very impressed, she did it all on her own! AND its her favorite thing to do! I love her heart, her willingness to give and love. I took the opportunity to talk about being last and putting others first and challenged E to find a chance to put Z first today. Then at Breakfast, E read us devotionals...one was about serving, so we talked a bit about that, real life examples of how we serve. The kids are smart and watch us carefully. We pointed out that we can do little things to serve...like Mommy getting Daddy his coffee. I know...this sounds so wonderful and it is, but I want Mommas to know...we don't plan this out in our home. But I do GRAB the chances when they arise, I'm hot on it. I would truly enjoy planning these learning moments, but my life is a bit chaotic for that....just me being transparent so be gentle with the judgments.
Well, guess what? They are ALL in the Kitchen now. Time to go. I'll leave you will a picture!
