My little smiley eyes girl told me the other day that when she grew up she wanted to have 10 babies, all girls. She is naturally the nurturing type so I'm sure if that is what she really wants when she grows up then she can do it. I've noticed that she always pays special attention to me which keeps me on my toes (actually makes me nervous). If I can teach her anything I hope it is how to truly love and use our Savior as the key example. Being able to love that way I believe keeps are hearts humble & soft. I myself have not mastered this concept yet although I feel I was born with a natural talent to love. I'd like to think that being able to love can be classified as a talent. In that case, it's my talent I like the very most & hope to never loose but only learn to build upon as I progress in age because it is not always easy to do.
Well speaking of progress, did you realize that we are almost at a close of summer as we head into the month on September? With summer closing in, my children's eating habits have also closed on their desire to eat fruit & veggies. It's been like pulling teeth to get any of natures candy to fall onto the palette of my kid's mouths. Seriously we have tried the tactic of bribing, threatening, & telling them they will get big muscles so that thy can play longer. And yes we do refer to fruit in our house as nature's candy (husband came up with that) but it's finally lost it luster & excitement. In my attempts to get the girls back on board I turned eating fruits and veggies into a game.
At least for one of my kids it seemed to work. She even got the wild card that said she got one trip with Momma to get ice cream @ the store. The other cards were for a trip to the store with Mom to pick out a fruit/veggie of their choice. Wish me luck on part 2 of the game.
P.S. - Did you know I was kind of crazy when it comes to color coordinating....or maybe I'm just plain crazy. Either way I can't help it. Sometimes I do it without even realizing.
