Keep it up

One more thing that I treasure:

When the kids awoke this morning, they snuggled in bed with me for a few minutes. Then out of the blue, Caeden said, "mom don't come out of the room." Owen said, "ok I will block her with my light saber and not let her come out."
Mike is out of town. So i was a little worried about how we would get everything done this morning and make it to school on time.
I figured they were up to something so I took advantage of the time and straightened my hair & got dressed.
When they finally let me come out of the room. The two of them were sitting at the dining room table eating cereal. I walked out with my jaw dropped.

1) made his bed
2) brushed his teeth
3) took his vitamins
4) poured cereal and milk for the both of them and brought them to the table.
5) got an extra 50 cents for his piggy bank. ( he is trying to save up for a trampoline)

1) helped :) he wanted to make sure that I knew that
2)was a fierce bouncer/blockader/jedi warrior
3) got hugs because he could care less about money in his piggy bank

This is highly unusual behavior and I would like it to continue. I never had to ask them to do anything this morning and we were able to get to school early for once.
So please boys, keep it up. Lock me in my room all day if you want, just make sure that when I finally come out the laundry and vacuuming are done. :)

This is so precious, Melanie! I love those little moments when our children "express" their love so tangibly!

AWESOME!!! What great kids you have Mel. I am glad that you blogged it because I always am afraid I'll forget moments like these and then even forget to write it down somewhere.
You have to be beaming!!!
