The Sweetest Things

I am sure every mother has those moments when she wonders what the heck she is doing with her kids...I feel like I have been having those too often recently. All my ideals and goals when I was first pregnant with Quinn compared to the reality of having two little ones with a third on the way is humbling to say the least.  But once in a while you get those moments that give you a glimpse into the sweetness of those little spirits, that reassure you that you are indeed on the right track.

At dinner last night Quinn looked over and said "is anything the matter Mum?" Nothing was but I thought it was sweet of him to ask

I dropped a necklace yesterday and it broke clean in two. I cried! It was a necklace that meant a lot to me. James came over and gave me a big kiss and a hug. Thanks buddy! He has also started this habit of putting his hand gently on your shoulder and looking at you with his grave little green eyes as if he as trying to convey many words of wisdom and comfort. Sometimes he will even whisper a thing or two.

I was also amazed to see James take my bowl this morning and put it in the dishwasher.

Quinn decided to sing a song to the baby as I was telling him she could probably hear us. I asked him what song he wanted to sing and he picked "I Am a Child of God". He then sang the song to my belly so sweetly.

There are more but I can't remember any right now. I am so glad for my two little boys!
