One Person - Two Hands

At times, my kids can be a little demanding. For example - Zane will ask for chocolate milk. While I am pouring the milk he will start begging me to turn on his movie. While adding the chocolate to his milk he will request crackers and whine about the movie not being started yet.

Often I tell my kids, “I am but one person with two hands. You will just have to wait.”

The other morning I was putting on my makeup and Zane asked for some chocolate milk. I asked him to wait a minute while I finished. He said, “You are one person Mom, with two hands. I will wait.” He then helped me with my makeup (he likes to hand me stuff) and then we hurried to the kitchen to make chocolate milk.

I think he has figured it out! They can be taught!

Happy Easter!

You know that commercial (I think it’s for shoes) where the sky is blue, the grass is green, and all the people are wearing spring clothes in pastel colors? I want to know where they live! Where is SPRING? We had snow so we gave up on the egg hunt this year.

Between sessions of conference the kids went out and built a snowman in the front yard.

One of the neighbor friends came to help Morgan stack the snowballs.

I thought it turned out pretty cute!

(It took bribery to get Zane to wear the pink boots one more time.)

A Letter

Dear Young Man Who Wants to Date My Daughter,

Please don’t be offended by my apparent lack of compassion towards you. It’s not that I don’t like you. It’s just that I love my daughter more than any thing on earth! It’s hard for me to let her go. It scares me to send her out in to the world.

You seem like a good person but I know that good people can fall too. Please promise me that you will be careful, you will remember who she is and who you are, and you will treat her with the respect she deserves. She is the daughter of a King.

I trust you to take care of her when she is with you. I trust you to help her do what is right. I trust you to keep her safe. Please don’t destroy that trust.

I know she likes you and has fun when she is with you. Enjoy your friendship and never do anything that will make you ashamed of that friendship. Be wise!

A Devoted Mother
