After I had woke up and took a shower around 6:15 this morning I was looking forward to some quiet time with God and possibly making my husband some breakfast. I enjoyed my shower and took my time and as I was attempting to get dressed and Todd was working on getting ready for work himself ... the "beckoning" began. I looked at my watch and couldn't believe that they were awake at 6:45! Our kids always sleep until about 7:30, but not this morning... Eliana hollared from her room "mom can I get up, mooooommmmmmmm, mom can I get up??" and Owen who often taunts me with Da Da babbles, but from his room came "mamamamamamama" He only does this when he's in his room and wanting out. While I still don't think he knows that I am "mama" I think he does know that saying mama gets him out of bed!
My first reaction was annoyed (I must be honest) I looked at Todd and said YOUR kids are crazy!!! LOL.. But then Todd said something to me that has changed my outlook all day. He said "Babe you have a fan club!" He was joking but it really got me thinking! So often we think "uhhhhh what do you need" (or at least sometimes I do) rather than thinking "my kids really do love me." So my whole day has been filled with graceful little moments rather than minor annoyances! Because I know this "fan club" stage might not last long, and I want to enjoy it! Besides how could you not enjoy these adorable faces!
So for this week and beyond I will do my best to enjoy my "fan club" and the love that God has blessed me with through my AMAZING family!
