On the Flip-Side

Having a three year old means a defiant, stubborn child one minute and a adorable, comical, sweetheart the next minute.

*Every day at naptime, as I close the bedroom door, Ambria shouts out, "I love you a million ka-pallion jajillion zazillion times!" (or whatever word she makes up to rhyme with million). Makes me smile every time.

*I gave her a glass of hot water after playing in the snow (she doesn't like hot chocolate, she likes cold chocolate) and as she drinks her hot water she says, "Mom, you are the best cooker ever!" Wow, if that is all I have to do to be a good cook, I'm in! I need to make my own recipe book!

*Ambria is also a little set in her ways and she likes only four chicken nuggets and when daddy gave her six chicken nuggets, she says under her breath in a polite quiet voice, "one, two, three, four, five, SIX...why do I have six chicken nuggets?" One day I put five nuggets on her plate and she refused the eat the fifth nugget (whether she was hungry for it or not). It is times like these, that I just chuckle at her individualism.

There are countless things that Ambria says and does every day that make me smile and I need to start writing them down.

Did I ever tell you how much I love reading this!? I know I have a million times. Your life is so much like mine with one more added child. And I swear you are thinking all the same things that I do. Saw Jerry last Sunday at church!
