Morning Laughs....

With the pouring rain outside I drove my kids to school this morning and as I am about to park and let them hop out I say to them ' You are going to have to run because...(here I break out into song and sing loudly) 'It's raining men, Hallelujah, it's raining men.'

Keziah my seven year old jumps out of the van
and says ' Have a good day with all the men raining down, hope you find one.'

I laugh and say 'I already have one, remember? He is sitting at home.'

She replies matter-of-factly with a chuckle ' Well get him to rain down from the sky so you can catch him again.' and off she runs a big smile on her face.

I giggled all the way home.
My kids so often make me smile and laugh out loud, I hope that I will be remembered as a mom who was full of laughter and fun and that they will always know how much joy they bring to my life.

Kids are so cute - they way they think and what they say.

That's my goal too. I don't want the only pictures that my kids draw of me are with a mop and a scowl on my face...and then they draw a picture of their dad, the fun parent! Ack! It's good to have a good laugh over the witty things they say to show them that you indeed spill out in laughter.

And that's a great memory right there—for you and your 7-year old.
