i love my mommy

home cooked meals, doing the dishes, cleaning, putting my kids down for naps, lifting bennett out of his crib... the list goes on. what would i do without my mom? well, i'll find out soon enough, but for now, i very much enjoy her company and her servant's heart.

yesterday, she bathed the kids for me. she had ella out of the tub, and bennett announces that he has to go to the bathroom. automatically, i reach to get him out of the tub, forgetting that i can't lift him. not to worry, because he remembered. "no! grammy! mommy, owie." oh yeah... nothing like needing your 2 year old to remind you of your limitations.

ella has an abc book of bible verses. Q is one of her favorites that she memorized right away. "be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry." so as i was trying to talk with my mom about something and ella was desperately trying to ask me something about going with her to get her necklace, i was kinda ignoring her and kept saying, "just a minute." and when her pleading didn't work, she realized maybe getting spiritual would. "but mommy, God says we should be quick to listen." maybe not exactly the application the verse is intending, but she got some major points (and laughter) for her persistence and effort.

and poor mason had his circumcision today. he was not happy (can't say i blame him) and there was lots of drama at the doctor's office. sure am grateful grammy was there to help. i'm going to miss her!

I am so glad you have such great help. I'm looking forward to bringing you dinner, but I know it's nothing like having your mom around. I'll call next week and take the kids to the park :)
