One of my favorite things about having an almost 3 year old in the house is the constant amusement I receive from her. Isabella is cracking me up every day with things she says and does. Often times, I look at Brynn and Cooper and just laugh as I think about a year from now when all 3 of them are full of surprises!
Isabella loves church and gets very excited for MOPS, Honeybees, Sunday School, etc. She gets a little confused since her daddy works at church. She sometimes calls church "daddy's house." Oh well, it is her Father's house, right? Just not the one she is thinking of. Anyhow, she went to Youth group with Johnny Sunday night and learned the Matt Redman song, "You Never Let Go." Some of the students were raising their hands during praise and worship. I find it absolutely hysterical that she copied them and was raising her hands! In addition, we have been singing the song at home alot, but she has revised it. She belts out, "Oh Lord, you HAVE to let go/through the stone and through the calm/Oh Lord, you have to let go/You have to let go of me." I love listening to her mess up the words, but I am glad her theology is not correct because I don't really want to be let go.
So, whether it is singing so adorably, telling me I need to drive faster (EVERYDAY!), insisting she will be 23 at her next birthday (she will be 3 in May), instructing me to call my husband "Babe" instead of "Johnnie", or stripping her jammies off because she is "cold", she melts my heart and keeps me on my toes!!!
I don't know about you, but I didn't realize how excited I was for Spring to get here until this incredible weather came this week. We were at the park yesterday and today, and seeing my kids all running around so happily does my heart good! I think my goal is to not ever eat lunch inside for the whole summer! One of my most dreaded motherly duties is cleaning up meals for 3 terribly messy kids 3 times each day. I don't mind cooking or feeding them, but it just feels like all I do is have to clean up my floor! So, if I eat lunch out on the deck in the backyard, at a park, or just about anywhere else besides my kitchen, it is a great feeling to me!
Well, I am off to bed after I go wake up and kiss my kiddies! Am I nuts? I just can't help it!
