Mr. Loveable

This is CJ. I have been enjoying him so much lately. He really is the essence of innocence. He makes me want to be a better person. He is always happy and smiley. He is just so sweet.

Lately, I have been trying to be better at enjoying the little moments. Partially because life has been so crazy lately. Anyway, it has really made a difference in my parenting. It makes me appreciate my kids more and be more loving and patient with them because I stop to see how wonderful they really are. Emma Jane has been doing the funnest thing lately. Whenever she is across the room, I will bend down and open my arms out wide and she will run across the room as fast she can and leap into my arms.

If you have a moment, I would love to hear of any moments you have enjoyed lately.

I know how you feel. Mila will climb on my lap and wrap her arms around my neck and say, "I love you so much, mom!" It is so wonderful to watch her and see her sweet spirit. I hope your house is coming along good.

I get stressed a lot with work so sometimes I feel like I don't like my job too much, or like I am just barely surviving. Today I was walking down the hall and I heard yelling behind me... "Señora! Señora!" I turned around to see one of my students who grinned and waved. That made me feel good and remember that things aren't so bad after all. :)

Dallas has been saying the sweetest things--Sure I will help you Mom! or Even when I am 4 I will love you!
But today, we had so much fun dancing to some William Tell classical:). Because it sounds like a horse race and they take turns on the rocking horse going as "fast" as they can. They get crazy and it is so funny. Brenna has been giving me lots of hugs.
But I have to admit the first thing I thought of was the twix I had earlier--ditto to Brooke's comment, ha ha.
