Childhood Rights of Passage
This weekend the kids, Paul and I watched my VERY favorite movie of ALL time! It was so fun for me to introduce it to my children and hope that they would love it as well. One wonderful scene after another I reminisced as we watched these scenes together.
If thinking of "a few of my favorite things," I might think of this movie and its songs. I watched Cait's face all throughout the movie thinking..."she's going to be singing these songs for weeks from now."
"Yodelei, yodelei, yodeloo"...yep, singing it for weeks from her sweet little mouth.
Another milestone of childhood this weekend was my children's first experience with the ice cream truck. We were in Fort Worth working on Paul's house (yes again) and we heard it. Ya know, that ice cream music that is the dead ringer give away that the ice cream man was on is way. They were so excited to make their choice and spend their own money on their ice cream. SOmehow they didn't even know what an ice cream truck was. We've never had one drive by in our neighborhood. Crazy huh?
It was just a fun family weekend. I so enjoy beign a mom. I admit that it is MORE wonderful when you have someone to share it with. Someone to snicker with at the funny things the kids say, share the joys and the fruit of our labor. We're thankful for the task that has been set before us and so grateful that we can share the task as a team.
