Yep, they said that!

My oldest son, Jacob, loves magic tricks.  I even got him a cute little magic box for Christmas and a book on card tricks.  This keeps him and his little brother entertained for hours.

Well, I've become a part of the magic because my boys truly think I can pull things out of their ears!  Haha I hide things they're looking for in my hand, and if I find it first, I cup it in my hand, reach behind their ear and tell them it was behind their ear all along.

Well that's been a wonderful fun game until today.

Releasing The Training Wheels...

While we were going through the motions of our bedtime ritual, I was helping my 4 YO brush his teeth, and my 7 YO (who had just finished brushing his teeth) was wiping his hands and mouth with his wash rag. He then just stopped and stared at me.  I noticed out of the corner of my eye his movement had ceased, but I was too caught up in making sure the toothpaste stayed on my youngest son's toothbrush while also holding steady his little step stool.

When I looked over at him and actually paid attention to what he was doing I caught his gaze.  He smiled at me, hugged me tightly, and said, "I don't want to grow up mommy."  I knew this was a "mommy love" moment by his gaze and embrace, so I said, "What made you say that?  What were you thinking about?" He said, I just want to stay little forever because I don't want to grow up and you grow old and die. 

I laughed and said, "Yes, you do!

Sometimes I wonder...

I know it's not biblical.  I know it's not true.

But, sometimes I wonder...

I wonder if God and the angels sit around with popcorn and get entertained by us much as we would a movie or even the Superbowl many will be watching today.

And, do they laugh at us?

Like when you're getting out of the shower and as you're drying off your feet, your towel gets wrapped around your foot, you lose your balance, and fall (with one foot up) head first into the bathroom door because it's either do that or fall.

You know. At stuff like that...
