My Sweet Angels...

Just LOVING my kids right now. Two happenings that melt my heart tonight:

Bella had a book fair today. Buy one get one free. She was SO excited and has been talking about it for days. She woke early and said that she wanted to use her own money to buy a book. I replied by telling her I thought that books were a great thing to spend her money on. She then told me that she had put an extra bit in her pocket for her friend at school - just in case this friend forgot her money. Her little friend did forget her money and Bella was happy to give it to her. Innocent and simple, her small act of generosity touches me. She is a good girl. She senses others needs for extra love and attention and has an incredible heart at her early age.

Mac came home late tonight from class and his YM calling. He went upstairs to kiss the kids goodnight and found Cole asleep on our floor. He was in the tiniest of corners curled up with a flashlight and the Book of Mormon. Precious.

Funny that I am supposed to be the parent, but often learn so much from my babies. I know that it is a trade off and all part of the plan - we are meant to teach each other. I feel so grateful to have been entrusted with their special spirits. Lucky to learn from them both...

When Bella was Cole's age, the only thing we would find her curled up in the corner with was that random purse with all the string cheese inside.... hehe.

when I was little I would have asked for extra money and kept it for myself. What a little dear heart. Your kids need care bear names. I love them...
