A Funny Conversation

I have always loved the nighttime routine with our kids, the time when everyone gets ready for bed and D. and I go into each of their rooms to pray with them and talk about whatever they want (sometimes this is shorter if we're all exhausted!). Last night, I had fun getting the little princess ready for bed...bathtime, new kitty pajamas, sweet arms wrapped around my neck, reading the "Spot" books together, then we had this conversation.

Me: Tomorrow morning you can have some oatmeal:)
Princess: Oatmeal.
Me: Yes, oatmeal.
Princess: Cheerios.
Me: Cheerios.
Princess: Banana.
Me: Banana.
...a slight hesitation and a little smile...Princess: M&Ms!

Yes, Princess, you might get some M&Ms:)

Hi Kelly! I loved the conversation you posted. But what really struck me was the photo of your four children. I had just finished reading your post, had a smile on my face and was ready to click off, then I noticed the picture. I stopped and just looked for little while. What struck me was how very complete the picture and your family looked. It was a very wonderful moment, just wanted to share. Have a great day Kelly!
