* Max randomly decided he had a goal of doing 500 push-ups this morning. So he did them. Then he made his own lunch and snack, got himself dressed, combed his hair, and brushed his teeth without anyone asking. Where did I get this little man?
*I learned a warm blanket from the dryer might be the trick to actually getting Jonas to really go to sleep for nap time (well, and bribing him with M&M's for his new gumball machine might have helped too)...
*Two days ago our lovely friend was over right before Valentine's Day. As she tucked the kids in bed, she said "Kids, I want you to pray for Aunt Sara to find a husband." :)...
A moment later, Max popped up and said "You're lucky you asked me because I have very good prayers!"
*I totally lost track of time today and missed Max's school pick-up time by 15 minutes (a first)! I felt awful as I ran up to get him from the office. His first words were: "Mom, I was freezing!"
Hot chocolate was only a natural part of my penance on that one. We all gathered around the table with hot chocolate, whip cream, and marshmallows sipping happily. Sometimes I wonder why we don't do that everyday.
*I have a mean canker that hurts like the devil when I eat chocolate. This may be an answer to my prayer for help to get some self-control on my love for chocolate!
*Last week Jonas was very sick in bed and I stayed with him to sing him songs and tell him stories. After a while, Jonas decided it was time for him to tell me some stories. He told me the story of how I got him. This is it:
In heaven there was a race, and I drove a purple car in the race. There were loops and a very high jump (I didn't look down). I won the race and Jesus told me I could pick anyone I wanted. I pointed up in the sky at Jonas and said, "I want that one. I want that perfect boy." And I was so, so happy because I wanted him so, so much.
Completely epic. I buy it.
