Wow! My first ever blog! It feels so important. The main reason I want this is to remember all the little things that happen in our daily lives. My friend and I joke that we wish we had "mommy cam" (a built in camcorder in our fingers that would immediately record anything cute or funny).
So, in honor of that I will start with a few things that have happened recently that I want to remember.
On our way home from church Sunday our four-year-old and I were talking about where God lives etc. She asked how we get to heaven and I explained to her how if you love Jesus and try to be like Him then when you die you will go to Heaven. She says, "So, if I die will I go to Heaven?". I said, "Yes". She said, "Well, I will just look at God and say 'No thank you, I'll just go back to my mommy because I will miss her too much.' ". I about melted!
My husband and I are foster parents and recently the possibility of adopting a boy was open to us. I was discussing this with the girls. Our four year said, "Mommy, I hope he stays gone from us." I said, "Why? Don't you want him to live with us?". She said, "I'd love to have a little brother, but I just wish his mommy would take care of him." I found that to be amazingly perceptive for such a tiny girl.
