The Joys Of Parenting

I don't have much time for blogging today, but I had to write something to replace all yesterday's negativity with. It was fun to write yesterday's post-- bellying about all the ridiculousness that goes along with parenting! I got a little carried away though, so today, here is a quick list of the joys I blatantly overlooked yesterday.

Beneath the bellyaching I really am abundantly blessed, and 1000% in love with my life. 

A four year old's insistent use of the word "Momma" before or after (and occasionally both before and after) every sentence uttered.

"Momma, that looks like a police station." 
"Momma did you know that I have T-ball tonight momma?" 
"I'm four now but after my birthday then I'll be 5 momma." 
"Momma, give me a hug and kiss bye bye. Momma will you wave to me toooooooo momma?" 

 The way Micah say's "Sorry" to his brother and gives him a hug when he does something mean, but even more endearing is how he does it when Owen was the one who did something that hurt Micah.


{Joyful clapping and squealing} when Micah sees his dad or myself. 

Owen's love for cucumbers 
Micah's love for anything other than tomatoes or lettuce

Micah's heart for worship, even at such a young age! 

Owen's new found love of T-ball and the importance it seems to give him, like his life has a new purpose. It's so sweet and interesting to see even at 4 without being told, as a male he instinctively seeks and feels pride from his physical accomplishments.

Love you all! Thanks for stopping by today, I'd love to hear what you are feeling blessed by today :)


  1. What cute little blessings! But, I know that some days can be tough and that's okay. Tough days are quickly replaced by not so tough days where fun memories are made. Blessings to you!
