A Few of My Favorite Things

As many of you know life as a parent can sometimes be a roller coaster ride. Luckily I am blessed to have those little moments that make it all worth it.
Sami has become my ray of sunshine. Over Easter we were talking about the candy she got and I mentioned that the peanut butter eggs were my favorite and next thing I know she gives me a handful of them that she picked out of the bowl. This touched me because it showed me that she really does listen when I talk and she does find joy in doing things for me.
Braden, the other day, informed me that I have "too much love for him". I have a book called "Loving your child too much", it is about not spoiling your kids, he doesn't know that is what it is about, he thinks it is about just loving your kids too much. Well he told me that I need to read it because I have too much love in my head for him, because I tell him "I love you" all the time. I asked if he doesn't like it when I say that, but he said he does like it, but I still have too much love. I am glad that my son knows I love him and I hope he never has to wonder how I feel about him.
Ethan, luckily has a cute smile, it saves his life daily! He is such a cute little boy, his only fault is his attitude. He is so moody, but thankfully I can usually break his mood by asking to see my favorite smile. He also loves to snuggle, which is one of my favorite things.
Jacob is my life saver. He is always so happy to see me and he can't talk yet so he is the only one who doesn't argue with me. Everyone needs someone in their life like that!
Brad is one of my favorite people too! Everyday I thank my Heavenly Father for him. He is so wonderful! He has recently lost over 30 lbs. and now weighs less than when we met. I feel like I have a new husband. Now if I could only keep up with him!!!!!
