Out of the mouth's of babes...

Grace has been sick for the last three days. She was more cranky than usual on Tuesday and by Tuesday night, she had a high fever. She slept poorly, and in the morning, she was a mess. She wouldn't eat, wouldn't let me put her down and wanted to nurse constantly. By 10 o'clock, I couldn't believe that we had been up for a mere four hours. I was tired, cranky and very short with Sam.

When Grace finally took a nap I asked Sam to come read with me. He eagerly climbed up on the couch with a stack of his favorite books. I snuggled him close and told him I loved him. Then I apologized for being so cranky and mean that morning. He looked at me with those big, dreamy eyes and said, "Mommy, that was really nice."

"What was nice Sam?'

"When you told the truth mommy, that was nice."

Ouch. Compared to the times that I am cranky and mean and act like it's all his fault?

I love that boy. He makes me smile 100 million times each day.

SO cute! I think that does mean so much to them when we are honest- they don't miss a thing. Hopefully it will help them to know we are human but that we can say sorry too.

Hope Grace gets better and you all can get some sleep.

Nothing like a little boy to tell it how it is. He has such a tender heart and obviously loves you very much.

I hope today is much better and you all can get some rest this weekend.

Thanks for sharing him with us. He makes me smile, too!

Happy Easter!
