Cute Kid Stories..... ENJOY!!!!

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

I had a wonderful day yesterday........ Had a great workout, easy day of work, and then came home to a clean house with dinner on the table. Can't beat that! My hubby is wonderful!!!!

But what made it even more special was my children.

My daughter (she is 4) went with me to the store after work. At the check out, she chatted away with the clerk while I was paying for our items. When we were leaving she said have a nice night, started walking away then turned around and said, "Have a merry Christmas too!". It was the most adorable thing and I about melted... as did the clerk! We talked about it on the way out and I told her how proud I was of her for being so kind. She just said, "It's Christmas time, I want to say Merry Christmas to everyone!" Again..... melted!!!!!!

Then my son (he is 7) made the hubby and I some Christmas cards and placed them on our beds. The boys love doing that. We are always finding notes on our bed or under our pillows. It really makes our night!!!! The Christmas cards he had made all said how much he loved our family with about a million of XOXO's on it. Again my heart melted but quickly turned into laughter when I was going through his school work that he had brought home. His spelling test from last week was 100% and had a note on it. As I looked closer, next to the word 'bride' (one of his spelling words) he wrote, 'grosse'...... spelling it wrong..... I laughed so hard... the things they come up with. His teacher wrote a note on the side to him saying "You think so" with a smiling face. It probably made her laugh too.

These are defiantly keeper memories and papers! Something to hold onto the older they get!!!

I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I have!

Merry Christmas!!!!!

    Kids are just such a wonderful part of life. Thanks for sharing your stories with us. They are so sweet. Now, I'm going to have to have your husband talk to my husband. I would love to have an unexpected dinner on the table and a clean house done by my hubbie. Maybe in 2009. :-)

    kids are great...they say exactly what is on their mind..if they can't say it..they will try to write it..

    We can learn a lot from watching children!
