A Quiet Moment!


Today is like any other day. The children get up and we have breakfast, change our clothes and play in the playroom. Then our day changed. I took a phone call and left the room and the kitchen for three to five minutes. As I was talking on the phone my children went quiet; which if you are a parent that is NEVER a good thing. I ended the phone call and walked back towards the playroom to find that the children had taken off the pillows to my couch, unzipped the zipper and had taken the filling out. I had to take a few pictures for our memories. I like the fact that Esther is on the toy box letting me know that she did not get involved in this. Jacob ran and climbed on the couch and Elijah looks like he had nothing to do with it. The funny thing is that Joshua is in the middle of the mess because he did not get out fast enough.

The good thing is that the children helped me clean up the mess and my pillow has been re-stuffed. Thanks to our robot "Revi" all the residue will be picked up with our nightly cleaning at three in the morning.

Every day is a new day full of wonder and amazement at how I am still sane after spending the day with my children. Thank you God for giving me humor and patience.

That's pretty hilarious! Glad you thought to grab your camera. ;o)
I hate to ask myself, but I'm always wondering what crazy things our kids will think up next.

Whenever I have a tough day, I know I can look at my grandchildren and God gives me laughter. You are going to have some great stories to tell their friends when they get older. I love the analogy you give with each picture. You have a lot of insite. May God continue to give you the strength, humor, and patience that you will be needing. Love Mom and Dad
