I love how he appreciates some of the little things I do.
“I can’t talk with food in my mouth, that’s why I yelled it!”
Huh? It makes me laugh that it makes complete sense to him.
“You can’t pick your nose when your fingers are dirty. You can only pick it when your fingers are clean.”
I guess I need to re-think my explanation that picking your nose is not a good idea because your fingers are dirty?!
“Mom makeup doesn’t make you beautiful. You are beautiful just the way you are.”
Did my little boy really just say that? How did I get so lucky? Why should I waste my time on makeup when I could be playing with him?
Sometimes my children teach me so much more than any adult could. I am in awe of how pure their love is. I am constantly amused how things that make sense in my mind, mean something completely different in theirs. Maybe I should carry that with me and remember it for conversations with my love? They inspire me, confuse me, open up my mind, and make me laugh, but my favorite of all; they melt my heart with a simple hug.
Happiness is always there. Are you seeing it?
