If you are my friend on Facebook, then you have probably already seen these conversations posted as my "status" of the day. But these are so sweet and child-like, that I wanted to record them here, to have that memory written down.
#1 (A fall day driving home from school)
Quinn: Mommy, yook!! Da trees gots colors on dem!
Me: Really? What do you see?
Quinn: I see red and orange and lellow!
#2 (after a long stretch of rainy days)
Quinn: Mommy, somefing happened!
Quinn: All da clouds are gone. It's a sunny day!
Me: Yes it is!
#3 (on a pretty, cloudless morning on the way to school)
Quinn: Mommy, its so purty today.
Me: Yes it is. Do you know who made the day?
Quinn: Uh huh....Mrs. James!
#4 (while asking the blessing over his supper)
God is great. God is good. Let us thank him for my chicken nuggets. Amen.
I know one day, before I know it, he will be big and grown and gone.
But for now, I'm going to hold on as tight as I can to these sweet moments and store them in my heart. I am so blessed to be his mommy!
