I asked my daughter what Bible verse she learned at church on Sunday–after a few minutes of concentration she said, “God takes care of me. 3 Peter Pan.” I think it was actually from the book 1Peter, but I’m pretty excited about reading that new Peter Pan book. Seems intriguing.
I asked if she had brushed her hair and I got a 5 minute monologue on the positives of wearing a headband–you don’t have to clip anything, which is sometimes hard, and your hair looks very pretty.
I asked my baby boy if he was hungry and he said, “uuuuuhhhhhhhhh.” I’m very confident that was his version of “YES! YES! YES!”
Best of all, I play a game with them both called “who’s the best.” I say, “who’s the best baby in the world” and my boy grins. I say, “who’s the best big girl in the world” and my daughter raises her hand.
And then…my daughter says, “who’s the best Mommy in the world” and yells her answer–“Mama’s the best Mommy in the world!” When I don’t feel like I’m doing a good job, I just ask my kids questions. It’s great for the soul.
