Moment 1: Last night’s bedtime prayers
Mackenzie: We thank Thee for… Mama’s eyes.
Me (slightly flattered): We thank Thee for Mama’s eyes.
Mackenzie: We thank Thee for… different eyes.
Me (slightly humbled): We thank Thee for different eyes.
Mackenzie: We thank Thee for… other eyes.
Me (stifling a chuckle): We thank Thee for other eyes.
Mackenzie: We thank Thee for… eyes.
Me : Indeed.
Moment 2: In the hallway after church today
Mackenzie and I are holding hands, and she is clutching her paper from Nursery in her other hand, while Scott walks beside her.
She confesses that she only “did a little color bit on the paper” (because the girl cannot seem to summon the force to press DOWN when wielding a crayon).
Then, in a spectacular display of cuteness, she tucks her prized drawing firmly under her chin and grabs Scott’s hand with her newly unoccupied hand.
“I’m holding both hands,” She proudly points out as she walks happily down the hallway, chin to chest to keep the paper in place.
Moment 3: Walking into our house after church
Me (upon realizing I had a very full bladder): Just a minute, Mackenzie. I need to go potty big time before I can help you get lunch.
Mackenzie (joining me in the bathroom): I need to go potty little time, Mama!
