Parenting...seriously amazing!

I often wonder how much I say is going into my daughter...She's three and pretty observant but, I know a lot goes in and right back out! So, what is sticking to her? I figuring out that parts of what I'm saying stick to her and the more I say it the more sticks...but, that takes tons of time and patience! Two things I don't have a lot of...LOL, sad but true! So, here's some funny examples:

-The other day she randomly started singing the olympic athem which I sang to her months ago when the olympics were on...awesome!

-Today she told me she puts all her toys under her bed in the water cause they were being baptised! She saw her cousin baptised this past summer and she knew it was a big deal so why not have all her friends do it too!?? I didn't even try to explain it to her.

-I've been practicing coloring inside the lines for months...she wasn't getting it. Today I told her to outline the shape and color inside...she did it perfectly!

-We're working on obedience. Lately, even time I ask her to do something she tells me her tummy hurts. NICE TRY. It doesn't work.

-She's all about singing right now (mostly because of the Wonder Pets show) She's sings whatever she doing and what she's going to do's really cute.

I learn more about myself and my kids every day. They are such a blessing and at the same time they drive me crazy...LOL...probably because I know I need to grow up, serve them and stop focusing on myself. Wow that's so hard! I never knew I was selfish until I got married and then I thought I had worked through all my issues until I had kids...they all came back bigger then ever. It's good though. I know it's a process and I'm on a journey. My kids are riding along with me. We'll go over bumps together!

That's a lot of random-ness. Hope it made you smile.
