Kids Crack Me Up!

Dazzle recently turned 7. One of her gifts was the classic game Operation. The first time the children played it together, it was pretty much an unfair fight. Quipper, our current 10 yr old was getting piece after piece out with steadied hand ease, causing the 8, 7, & 4 yr old girls to become a bit discouraged. When Quipper deftly removed yet another piece, he modestly explained "It all comes from getting slivers out." He went on to assure them "You can learn my technique."

- Yeah, the training is fun, you just need to get a bunch of slivers and splinters...

Driving down to the in-laws' a few weeks past, we went through miles and miles (and miles and miles) of farmland. At some seemingly random point in the drive, Dazzle gasped "Ooo, there's that field! And there's that other field! I'd know those fields anywhere!" followed by a pause, and then a "hey, where's that other field?"
-Hmmm, which other field? Did you mean the one that looked pretty much like all the other fields we've been driving past for the last hour...? I laughed out loud at that one, sorry Dazzle, but seriously, that was funny.
My children make me smile each and every day. In the midst of all of the work of raising these future men and women (and it is work, don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise) are these moments of silliness and joy. The sweet moments, the icing on the cake of Motherhood.
And it's good for your heart!
  • A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance... Proverbs 15:13a
  • ...but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15b
  • A merry heart doeth good like a medicine... Proverbs 17:22a
