Write That Down!

Every time I tell my mom something cute one of the kids says, that's what she tell me, "Write it down".

Today Kenny, Abi and I were listening to a CD of Sunday School songs. Sometimes my kids have trouble understanding certain English accents and when the song came on that goes, "A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam..." Nate got a funny look on his face and asked, "Why does Jesus want me for a Zombie?"

Kenny had a not-so-funny moment the other day, but memorable just the same. He was having a rough day and just seemed out of sorts all afternoon. By suppertime he was obviously struggling. I gave him a hug and asked him why he was feeling so sad. His tears spilled over and he said, "It's just so hard being a big brother." Needless to say, he's been getting more hugs and cuddles as a result of that conversation.

I think we're having some of our own "It's just so hard to be a big brother" moments here, combined with I've been an only child for 12 years, now I have a sister moments!
