After we have our family Bible devotion time every night, we set the timer and the kids have a few minutes to quietly read books (or dance around and air guitar to WHATEVER music is playing) to settle them down for bed. This gives Josh and I a couple of minutes to pray together for our kids. As I was walking out of the room for book time this particular night, Areyna told me she needed a tissue for her stuffy nose. I handed her a tissue and walked out.
This is what I found when I walked back in the room after book time.
Again, I ask, why do I even bother?! I immediately go into my speal about how hard mommy works to clean the house , that they just made the house messy again, then Rainy interrupts me with a look like I had hurt her feelings and she says, "mommy, we made you a surprise." Zeke quickly runs over to the "pieces" on the floor and asks "some, mommy? Supise!!"
I felt awful. They were so proud of their surprise for their mommy. Just look at them. MAN, I LOVE MY KIDS!! I hope I won't be so quick to judge next time=)
