sweet words

Yesterday at our church all of the women received a book put together with a collection of quotes, memories, etc. written by our children. So needless to say I quickly flipped to find out what my kids had written about me. Here goes:

I love you because you love me. I love when you cuddle with me and help me make papers. I love when you let me sleep in your bed. I love when you play with me. I love when you give us candy. I love when we go shopping. I love that you are beautiful

Zoë Skipper

I love when you guys married. I love mommy. I love when you slide down the castle and when you were brave and went down the yellow slide and the blue slide and green slide. I love when you give us normal food and candy food. I love when you bring us to Great Water Wolf Lodge. I love when you let us go fishing at Mr. Mark’s house. I love that you brush your teeth like God says.

Judah Skipper

Am I the only person who finds this hilarious?? Can you tell that we just recently came back from a family vacation to Great Wolf lodge, an indoor waterpark? Yes, that would be the home of the yellow, blue and green slides. I didn’t realize I was being so brave but apparently someone special thought so. And do we see the common thankfulness felt deeply by both of our children–for CANDY! I promise you I don’t feed our kids junk and they love their vegetables…but I don’t know of any powers that can contain the Skipper Sweet Tooth. I capitalize because it really could be considered a condition. Just ask a couple of Skipper’s (or former ones!) you know. And no, I have not inherited this condition by marriage. I love salty and I always will–you cannot convert me! Maybe this candy obsession is why Judah is so proud of me for brushing my teeth (and not just because God says so).

I love my kids–I just can’t say it enough. They entertain me everyday with randomness and I love asking them questions and getting their awesome responses. I’d love to hear the funny sayings your kids have said.
