There is so much I want to write about. We have made some changes with Kamryn's preschool and I want to share my feelings, emotions and the process of it all. However, once again, I don't have time tonight.
What brought me to my blog, for a quick second, was a conversation I just had with Jaden. She made me smile. No, she had me cracking up and I thought to myself, I have got to write that down.
My girls often share their opinion, provide me insight or make comments that have me pause and think to myself: I have got to write that down. However, these conversations usually occur when I am driving, in the middle of cooking dinner or in the shower and I don't have pen and paper handy. I'll say to myself, "make a mental note of this and write it down later." But when the moment comes and I can write it down, I can't remember exactly how it was said. And then it's not as funny. (or sincere, honest, whatever the comment or conversation maybe).
Jaden has a very uncomfortable looking stye in the corner of her eye. I kept her home from school today because it was bugging her so much. After I tucked her into bed, said her prayers, kissed her goodnight and was heading out her bedroom door...
"Mom, I am not going to be able to sleep, my eye is bothering me."
I turned, walked back over to her and touched her head (she was lying on her side) I said, "Lay on your back, close your eyes, and pretend like you are floating on a cloud."
"Mom, (in a tone that makes her sound like she is way smarter than me) that would mean that I am falling through the sky. Don't you know a cloud is like a puff of air? It would not hold me. If I laid on a cloud I would plummet to my death..."
I started to laugh, which interrupted her dissertation, which I am sure would have included a horrible, detailed landing....
laughing, "Jaden, you crack me up, you need to try and get some sleep. Good night, I love you."
As I was heading down the stairs she yelled out, "Mom, I am still falling!"
All I can do is smile.
And I wanted to take a minute to get this one down. :)
We had a beautiful Easter...
