Ramblings of a Happy Mom.


I have been thinking alot lately about many different things...one in particular...my kids....

Baeya is my sweetheart. As she says "We're girlfriends!" I love going out with her alone. She is so sensitive. We were at church one Sunday and a special musical number was played. I looked down at her and she was crying "mommy, that song was beautiful." It's nice to have another girl around the house. Even though she 5 (AND A HALF) she still loves to cuddle. She'll come sit next to me at times and just curl into a ball. Baeya is very in tune with what's going on around her. She is growing up too fast!


I talk alot about how they drive me nuts...they do...But I should also tell people about the great mornings we have and the playing that we do. Ethan comes into my room almost every morning and I get a snuggle and some kind of game....this morning I got two game...tickle fight and "tell me to kiss you on the cheek but really kiss me" (as Ethan calls it.) He has the best smile and is so quick to say he's sorry when he knows he hurt someone. We lovingly call this guy Dennis the Menace because most of the time he means well, but really can break something or get into trouble so easily.


What can I say about AJ...He's such a sweet pea. A total mama's boy! Looking back, all my babies have been happy, but out of all three of my kids, I really think that AJ is the happiest. His smile can always brighten my day! My mornings always start with him....He wakes at 7am to eat...he of course gets breakfast in bed....while he nurses, he LOVES to touch my face and lately has been wrapping his legs around my arm. He always has the best stories to tell and he is so serious when he tells them...You can just imagine that he has something very important to tell you.


There is so much more that I could say about my kids, but I just don't know how to put it into words. They can be terrors I fully admit that, but what I need to express more is how sweet they are and how hard they try to be good. I love them dearly and hope and pray that I never forget to tell them each day what they mean to me.

Your children are beautiful! It seems like we spend so much time of the day reprimanding our kids, so it is nice for the reminder to look at their positive attributes more often. We put so much work into our kids, and the payout really is worth it when you think about how great they truly are!

Mary, you are so sweet. I'm glad to hear that despite "those days", you know the kind I mean, you still find time to enjoy your kids. Evie turns 4 next week and all I think of is that she's so big and my time with her is running out. I know, a little dramatic, but I remember when each of your kids was born! They're great and we hope to see them and of course, you and Eric for Christmas. Loves!

I have to agree! Your kids are so sweet and loving! You keep telling me I don't know what I have gotten myself into loving them, but you just proved my point very nicely! HUGS!!

Hey Mary that was a great post. Loved learning about the kids and you. Thanks for letting Eric and I play MM2.

You girls are so silly. Of course the kids grow up. That's the funny thing about kids, once you have them they start to grow year by year. That's way we got to love it while we got it!
