I'm a mother of 3 who started blogging as a way to share our many adventures and to expand beyond the everyday "mommy world". While there IS so much more to us mommies than the title, there is very little that doesn't in some way or another lead us back to or influence our children...if anything. So, I hope you enjoy following our family's randomness, because as all moms know- you can never anticipate what tomorrow will bring! Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day! :)

The Mind of a Child

I left Justin at home this morning with Sadie while I took the boys to school.  Before walking out the door I gave her specific instructions to get dressed for preschool so she'd be ready to leave when I got back.  The following conversation occurred when I returned.
Me:  "Sadie, are you dressed?"
Sadie:  "Yes, mommy, but I can't find any shoes."  (Don't know about you, but this is a FAR too frequent occurrence at our house.)
Me:  "I see a tennis shoe right there.  Maybe we can find the other one."
Sadie:  "Well, I was looking for my pink boots but I can't find them."  (beginning to pout, whine, and otherwise tear up.)
Me:  "Oh!  I remember seeing those earlier this morning.  (looking around)  Where did I see them?  Have you checked the bathroom?"
Sadie, heading to the bathroom:  "I found them, Mommy!  Here they are!"  (relieved and overjoyed.  All is right with the world again.)
Me:  "Look at that.  I'm so smart.  How did I get to be so smart?"  (jokingly, of course.)
Sadie:  "Because you're big!  And you eat Smarties!"
Thank you, Lord, for the mind and innocence of a child in such an imperfect and fallen world.  Have a blessed day!
