The simple things

There are such simple pleasures in life - if we just take the time to appreciate them.

Today I have three simple things that made me smile:

1. The girls made my bed for me! I'll have to straighten it out, but they are seriously impressive in their skills.

2. During breakfast, Emma demanded something of me. We're trying to learn manners here, so I asked her what the magic word is? She responded enthusiastically, "Please and Abra-ca-dabra!"

3. Andrew has to be prompted to remember to focus on his food during mealtime. Every time he has a bite in his mouth that he's not chewing, I say, "Chew it up, buddy." Without fail, his response is to say, "AH.... CHEW!" and act like he's sneezing.

Now I need to go attend to the rest of life that doesn't always make me smile...

Can you send your girls over to teach Claire their bed making skills? That would be great, thanks.

I hear you, if only there was a simple pleasure to be found in doing the laundry. I would say maybe some alone time but yeah right seems to be I usually have one child pulling out the laundry faster than I can get it folded.

Cute little stories, they made me smile!
