Moments to Remember

As a church we are reading a book called "One Month to Live." I am really enjoying it and have challenged myself to live as though my days were numbered. One of the things I am doing is really cherishing moments spent with my kids and truly being present with them. I often find myself ignoring them to blog or answer emails or clean the house or catch up on my favorite reality show. However, if I only had 30 days to live none of those things would matter as much as sitting on the floor playing with them, or reading a book with them, or tickling them until they can't breathe! Living this way has made me more keenly aware of how much they pick up on. Here is what I've seen and heard from them this past week...

We were on our way out the door and Maia goes to her room and puts her purse on her shoulder just like mommy and walks out the door.

Maia, shakes her finger at daddy, after he shoots a toy cap gun that is much too loud and says, "No mo daa-eee!"

Noah talking to Ricky, "BABE! Don't do that."

When Ricky asked Noah who he was calling on his toy phone he said, "I'm just texting Buzz Lightyear, daddy."

Upon discovering a sticker stuck to the bottom of his foot Noah exclaims, "Holy crap! Where did that come from?" (I must assure you that he picked up that word from his father, NOT his mother.)
