A sweet moment


I was just looking at this picture and I just have to write down this little moment I had with her, (so I don't forget it!)One morning I found her singing to her baby while rocking her. It was so sweet, she was being so still and quiet. I told her she was a wonderful mother! She just lit up and said, "Now that I am a mother can we read scriptures!" I just laughed, (normally that is not her favorite thing to do each morning!) I asked her, "Why is that what mothers do?" She said, "Yes rock their baby and read scriptures!"
I am so glad that right now in her 3 year old mind that is the definition of a mother! When Madey was about 4 she told me she did not want to ever be a mother! I was shocked! I asked her why and she said, "It is way too much work!" The funny thing is this totally sums up Madey and Brins- Brinley is looking at what is fun and Madey is looking at the reality of it all! I love these two girls! Thankfully I have won Madey over and She does want to be a mother someday!

Sweet girls! My Kate keeps telling me that she doesn't want to have babies, "Because it hurts too much when they come out". It just makes you wonder what these girls are hearing and paying attention to. :) Good to see your family doing well!

So CUTE! She is such a sweet girl. Isn't it funny how two girls in the same family can have such different personalities? Crazy.

I hope you don't mind I found your blog. I was one of your young women years ago in 12th ward. I just wanted to thank you for being such a good example to me. Your kids are adorable!
