Thinking we may have had yet another unexpected snow storm, I pulled myself up out of bed to take a peek out the bedroom window.
“Look mom you see, it’s all golden outside, it’s beautiful.”
It was sunrise and the trees were all glowing and the snow was glistening, and it looked like someone had turned the whole earth into gold.
I looked at Grace, smiled and said “You’re right honey, it is beautiful outside.”
Yesterday afternoon I had the kids in the car and we were on our way back from the grocery store. I had gone because needed to pick up some last minute items for our Valentine’s Day dinner. So as I am driving Grace is giving her short list of all the things she wants me to do for her when we get home.
I said to her “Grace I am only one person and can do only one thing at a time, and my first priority is going to be dinner.”
Michael then tosses in his two cents and says…
“Yeah Grace, Mom is not an octopus you know!”
I had to laugh…sometimes he is just too funny!
