My kids make me smile



I spent the week with my fabulous children, Eden 5, Canaan 3 & Judah 2. I was let in on their lives by sharing a room with them. It had advantages and disadvantages, but more advantages than not. One thing I LOVED was how they wake up in the morning. Canaan & Judah share a room so their wake up is different from Edens. Judah wakes first and lays in his bed saying, "Caannnnaaaannnnn....." he pauses. Canaan doesn't wake up right away. Then you hear some rustling after Judah has called for him a few times and you hear from the other bed, "Juuuudddahhhhhh....." and they go back and forth with animal noises that resemble birds and dog barking. This is how they wake up. and it makes me smile.
Eden has the sweetest spirit, she cares for her brothers deeply and is sad when they get hurt. She helps them get their toothpaste on their toothbrushes, gets an extra dessert for them from the dessert table, plays games with them, picks them up (which they love) & reads books to them.
and it makes me smile
Canaan hopes that when he grows up, he can be a train.
and that makes me smile.
Judah has a raspy voice.
and it makes me smile.
Eden makes me more cards than Hallmark has in their warehouse.
and it makes me smile.
She also called someone out at at the grocery store for buying too much of one product because it was a "waste of money."
and that made me smile. (sorry grocery store woman buying too many grapes)
They give me hugs, need me on a minute by minute basis & I couldn't ask for more. Well, one more I guess.
