Florida, Precious Q's and Unforgettable Mommy Moments

Hi! We just got back from a quick trip to Florida to introduce El Principito to his great grandpa (and namesake) and great grandma. The weather was beautiful and so was our time together...though much too short!

Darling Little Redhead seems to be growing up on us all of the sudden! He has independently started writing letters and saying things like "time to meet my educational needs" when he grabs his Leapster®. Should I be concerned? :)

And while he's always been a loving child, lately he's started to vocalize it so sweetly. "Mommy, you take such good care of me and El Principito." "Daddy, why does mama love us so much?" "Where's Daddy? He needs to be together with his best family". You can be sure that I am gathering all these things in my heart and cherishing them!

I'm not a perfect mom, and my kids will grow up understanding that I know that. But I hope that no matter what hangups they have with me through the years, that they will realize how much I love them!

And on that note, I would like to thank Jenny, who is a faithful reader and commenter, for the Mother of the Year award. The award brings attention to the fact that mothers aren't perfect, but they are still important! I always like to remember that I am the best mother for my child because God chose him specifically for me!

If you are reading this...I hereby bestow upon you the Mom of the Year Award! :)

Sweet post! I love the pic of your adorable boys with their great grandparents! Aren't great grandparents the best! I know Isaiah loves his great granny. I love what you said that although we may not be "perfect mothers", we are the perfect mothers for our children because God chose them for us and us for them. That's beautiful.
